Re: March 29-31 zMax Match Tour

Remind me about caster... I thought you wanted as much as possible positive caster (while still reaching the camber setting you want) in order to maximize camber gain (or minimize camber loss) while turning. This is at the expense of steering effort, which doesn't matter much with power steering. Am...

Re: Trailer Sway/Leveling Hitch Info

Thanks for the info so far guys! I'm bumping this back up since all the trailer haulers are back in town from last weekend's Tour. So far, from my reading, it looks like its better to get one that has the anti-sway built into the weight distribution part. Usually these do not have chains at the back...

Re: Trailer Sway/Leveling Hitch Info

I should probably also mention that I'll probably be towing this rig on a long trip once a year on average... so, I need something that works well but not necessarily the Cadillac solution. I am willing to pay more if a solution is less of a pain in the rear that others though (don't want some janky...

Trailer Sway/Leveling Hitch Info

I need to pick up a load leveling and sway control hitch to use with a 2500HD (8.1L) towing a 31' Airstream (~9000 lbs). I've towed a lot of boats and open car trailers in my time, but have never used a load level / sway control hitch. The truck tows the trailer around town and local highways fine, ...

Re: Regional 2 After-Action Discussion

I think the best thing we can do will be to require that all numbers be on the car for tech and have tech make sure they comply with the rules. If they don’t comply, tech informs them and they don’t run until tech OKs it. That will catch the majority without the need for dnfs or other harsh measures...

Re: Dixie National... the Official Thread.

Speaking of - you might want to see what Strano says about his Corvette. Something in the trans went wrong at Dixie and he had to put it on the trailer. It'll be interesting hear what happened from him. There is actually a worrying amount of stuff under the C6Z that a cone could potentially wreck (...

Re: Dixie National... the Official Thread.

Interesting that the same trans is used in the Mustang as well as the later model C6 Corvettes.

Re: Thanks for a well-run first event of the season!

Hmm, I need to see if SoloStorm was reading speed from the GPS or the car's speedo sensor via OBD. Top speed at redline in 2nd with the 335 BFGs is 89 and I don't recall being anywhere near the limiter. The 18" BFGs are about 3/4" shorter than the factory size, so I'd be travelling about 2 mph slowe...

Interesting. Cathers maxed out at 73 there and I was at 69.

Thanks for a well-run first event of the season!

Cathers is quick for sure, but I also think the car matches his driving style really well so it’s a deadly combo.

I’m closing in on figuring that out... just need some practice at it, so watch out!

Re: Thanks for a well-run first event of the season!

Course was a ton of fun... I never got that big kink in the back section right... always behind.

Three cars on course with no overlap really makes for an efficient event.

Re: Tire issues

Here is mine. https://youtu.be/-HN_Ll2W0Fs It isn't in my hub as a factory wheel looks perfect and it does the same thing on a balancer. If you'll notice, the warp runs well into the barrel of the wheel, so I really doubt UPS caused this. Also, the worst spot isn't the only one. You can see several ...
