Re: 2019 RCR #8

Does this exterior maintain a stock appearance? We don't run Stoptechs and we absolutely need to use ducting to our OEM Cobra 13" rotors and dual piston caliper setup in the front. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/40029793_2310411912307219_8828097499295121408_o.jpg?_nc_cat=103&...

Would I be allowed to removed a headlight and cover it with hardware cloth for the purpose of providing an inlet for brake cooling ducting?

Re: 2019 RCR #8

Why would a person want to modify an OE assembly? Are we talking about one particular assembly with a very specific modification, or is the intent to just allow any and all do what they want as long as it all resides inside the engine bay and doesn't look like it provides any ram air effect? Very ea...

Re: 2019 RCR #2

I always like phrase such as OEM or OEM direct replacement. I used to think that was a pretty straight forward concept, but wasn't there a little bit of an argument with the Spec MIata folks this year at Nationals as to what would constitute an OEM direct replacement part with regard to axle shafts ...

Re: 2019 RCR #8

I think I get Dustins point here of trying to ensure a level playing field with some defined accountability, but all this just seems way too complex to try and police and try and determine if it's ram vs. non-ram air fed and if it actually makes a difference, and if anyone is cheating the system. If...

Re: 2019 RCR #9

As written, this proposed rule change is unnecessary and too ambiguous to be beneficial and could leave the door open to unintended modifications being developed by some bright spark that could actually provide performance benefit. Additionally, making what is in essence a poor mans skid plate, I th...

Re: 2019 RCR #2

Dustin, the way you have it written it becomes unclear as to who makes the determination as to if the accessories provide an advantage or not. This only complicates things similarly to the aero rule, "if it looks like aero, then it is aero" and the "if it looks like ram air, then it i...

Mustang Brake options

I have some of the individual component weight values from the manufacturers, but my list is incomplete. If anyone knows what they are, it would be helpful to compare the combined weight of the calipers, caliper brackets and mounting hardware, and rotors in order to make a comparison between the Wil...

Re: 2016 East coast nationals Watkins Glen

Thanks all for the sympathies. I watched the race online. I hope it was more exciting to drive WGI over a number of days than it was to watch the final race. I was somewhat disappointed to see the race time cut short by 33%, the numerous yellow flag laps, the online coverage being stuck for long per...

Re: 2016 East coast nationals Watkins Glen

Sorry to announce that Team Incidental Contact has cancelled our trip to the Eastern States Championships at Watkins Glen this year as I will be attending my Grandmother's funeral services on Thursday instead. Someone else will have to bring a desert to the BBQ. Also, NASA's "no exceptions"...

First and foremost, drive what you like, what you know, and what you're comfortable in and willing to work on. I personally prefer the look of the older cars like the foxes and 3rd gen GMs, just because that's the era I was a teen in and grew up always wanting those. I also have a '96 Cobra. As far ...

Could you delete your post here and put them up as independent topics under 2015 RCR #4 and 2015 RCR #5 so at we may discuss each one individually?

Either or both. Posting to prompt discussion.

Yikes that was a hard hit, but it's good to see proper equipment, properly installed, and working as it should. It's comforting to know I have nearly identical equipment going into my car.

Dustin, it's already black and white. You can't do it. :wink: Now that busting your chops is out of the way... Other than those items specifically mentioned in the rules like the G-load brace, strut tower brace, and subframe connectors, there are to be no other items whose sole purpose is chassis re...
