Re: GL Region @ NCM, March 2016

And what is it with Firebirds in NCM? There are more Firebirds per capita there than anywhere else and by a wide margin! :D

And I thought SRF was expensive...

I've been using ATE Super Blue (or Typ 200 now that super blue is illegal) for ever in my CMC car. I know a lot of people that use Castrol SRF, but I never brought myself to stomach the damn near triple it costs over ATE. Anyway, while working for F1 this last USGP I noticed teams using Brembo HTC 6...

2016 rules V2 and Dustin from the Rockies

It came to my attention we managed to publish the 2016 without putting Dustin in there as the Rocky Mountain Director. oops! Come to think of it, we never did do a big announcement for Dustin did we? Welcome aboard the cmc director list Dustin!!! All of you guys in the RMR can direct all of your ire...

Re: 2016 Rules Directors Cut

Not sure why it was dropped from the list but it was. I'm not keen to piece meal solutions. There's a whole list of things we could come up with that would help, might help, should help but wont actually result in no 4.6 driver ever being worried about making the numbers and this one is firmly in th...

New Tx regional director

I'd like to announce that Michael Mosty is taking over as the Texas Regional Director for CMC. Michael has been with us for many years, and while he's a fierce competitor on the track he is always ready to help anyone with repairs, tuning, and improving their driving skills. Michael represents all t...

2016 Rules Directors Cut

The rules are published for 2016!!! This year we had a very short list of RCRs, which is actually a good thing. I'll go through them here to add a little explanation to what was decided. RCR #1 Rule 7.6.2 was modified in its wording but not in the impact. We added "or wiper cowl" since tha...

Folks, we've had the CMC forums switched over from an old forum application on a private machine to a more modern version of the software on a NASA server. a HUGE thanks goes to Nick Steel for watching over these forums and hosting the database etc. for damn near two decades lol.

Re: Please don't kill the noob...

I love it. All these posts and the results...inconclusive! hehe just like its supposed to be. It really is six of one or half dozen of the other. They each have little things that are nice and not so nice, but nothing that is a deal breaker. Like Glenn mentioned, if and when someone discovers a perf...

I agree others that solid mounts are not ideal for RR. In drag racing where getting the launch perfect is necessary and you want to instantly transfer all that engine torque to the chassis, fine. In RR I'll take a little give on the trans and engine block to keep things that arent supposed to be squ...
