Re: Aim Solo says low battery

If it's like the Solo2 it also can be charged via the USB port.

Re: Recommended truck to tow two car enclosed trailer

I towed a double open trailer for a few seasons with a 2005 Duramax. The truck had no issue pulling it and it didn't feel much different from pulling a single. I never bothered with weight distribution bars as it never felt like it needed it. For a double enclosed you'll want a 1 ton and ideally a d...

Re: F150 3.5 Eco Boost. Is it enough...

That will do just fine. I towed for several years with an X5 4.8 that made 350/350 hp/torque and it did great. With the longer wheel base and 470 pound-feet from the eco boost you'll have no problem. The upside of having an HD truck with a diesel is that it's fuel economy will be less affected by th...

Re: Thompson Turn 6

One of the warnings I repeatedly give students - if you you are ever about to put a wheel off resist the temptation to add steering angle, whenever possible straighten out and maintain throttle. I also point out the danger spots and have them scout recovery paths. Since we'll never eliminate these d...

Re: Thompson July 2020

The event page says here the sound limit is 99db and this post says 103db.

I know 4db isn't much difference, but I'm curious which is correct.

Thanks for the replies. I'm looking for a free standing rack that can hold 24 tires or so.
That's a lot of tires for someone who doesn't come to the track any more :P

Re: Tire rack

No. I'm looking for something like this but a little smaller. This one looks like it fits about 50 tires

Tire rack

No, not that one. Literally. I need a tire rack for my shop. Any suggestions on where to find a decent one? I'm looking for a free standing unit, not a wall mounted one.

Re: My PHD RX8 Build (Because it will take me 8 years)

Don't rely on the measurement to your body while seated. Your belts are designed to stretch in an accident. Assume that your torso will move 4-6" out of the seat back and that your head will be thrust forward from there. ...this shaft ended up much longer than I was originally thinking. If I had a d...

They no longer have a Dynojet, its a Land & Sea. I had my car dyno'd there before I realized Dynojet was now a requirement.

Re: Dynojet chassis dyno

I'd be curious to know too. I tried to find a dynojet in NH at the beginning of this season and had a similar frustrating experience, I eventually gave up.
