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...

Rules are black and white, you either meet them or you don't. Perhaps they could use some clarification to define what is and is not a containment setup? I don't think the CMC rules is where this belongs though, seems more of a CCR item to me. Dustin, you're contradicting yourself. If there is any ...

...agree that what meets the minimum isn't really adequate in a large scale crash. These safety discussions were my only source of information and for the rookies, they need to occur more frequently. I don't think the rules need to be made more stringent. While there needs to be a minimum, that wil...

Head restraint seats/nets and seat back supports.

I've submitted RCRs for stuff that I feel is important, and probably stuff that isn't as important, but felt needed to be clarified anyway. Most times I got back what I thought was a reasonable response, sometimes not. Bottom line is I'm burnt out on the process, and unless there is something I feel...

You need to verify your rear gears. I thought the 3.55 set was the one I messed up and replaced with the 3.73 set. Either that or I gave you my 3.55 set and I have the 3.73 now. I can't remember any more.

Does your cage have a dash bar located near the firewall below the base of the windshield behind the dash like the one in the two images below? If so, that's where the front attachment point would be. http://www.hanksvillehotrods.com/Portals/20/road%20race/richsfoxbody2.jpg http://www.hanksvillehotr...

Re: Attachment point - right side window net Foxbody

Anyone have a picture or suggestion as to how to attached the right side net into a Foxbody dash? Thanks in advance To be clear, this is not a right side window net, but a right side containment net. Correct? If so, ignore the dash and concentrate on correct placement of the net around you and your...

We drive cars that are either old enough to not have that feature, or not have EFI and computers. :wink:
