But should it really just be about rules? Shouldn't we as drivers want to man up as we improve, and move on to the next great challenge?

What are they doing in Europe that's different? Most of...

How many "factory" guys do we have in the slower classes in the US that are paying 100% for the parts? How many don't pay anything? I understand car prep is more rigorous, but it's not like we...

I'm pretty certain more than one team in the US pays its drivers bonuses if they make the "A" at a big race, and more if they win. I wonder if that's a contributing factor.

Anyway, I'm not...

All these timing tricks don't seem to benefit some groups as much as others. If you're running a pan car, or on a giant track, it seems to help. With sedans on smaller tracks? All I'm seeing is...

(US) Rubber/Carpet: Are we ready for mod yet?

After yet another long night of practice, trying to squeeze an extra .1 out of my 13.5 with timing, and battery warming and other stupid tricks, I decided to get a little crazy, and throw an 8.5 in...

I've been thinking about this some, and I guess what I'm feeling is the increase mid-corner and exit. Entering the turns seems pretty similar. I need to analyze it again when I'm at the track. It...

I decided to stop being a 13.5 chicken and run an 8.5 on our somewhat small carpet track. Man, this car is easy to drive with a spool! My timing will take some work, but taming more power doesn't...

Same story here. I'm interested in giving 1/12 a go, but no way I'm messing with round cells again. WGT seemed like it could be a good compromise, but it's got issues of its own.

It sounds like...

I'll be at the track from around 4-9 tonight if anybody wants to come out and practice. I may have the door locked if nobody else is there, so knock. :-)

It's an effective way of changing direction without a harsh 180, which are generally frowned upon in layout design. There's 1.5 chicanes in this layout, it's not gonna feel anything like oval. :-)

I think you're on to something about the heavier cars. The pan car guys seem to love the Tekin RS, but I thought it was a dog in my sedan. Now I'm running the SPX, and I'm ready to drop out of its...

It was great to see some new faces at the track Thursday. We usually have a lot more guys racing, but there's been a lag since CCC. It seems like after a big race like that, it takes a while for...
