What you put in the window doesn't bother me..... its the kids taking the door panels, seats and spare tires off in the pits and trying to grudge a car 3 seconds faster than them
But wait more... Please stand in the way as the next 4 cars come up and when they announce to leave look around like they are not talking to you.On the other hand, if you ARE going to put N/T on your window, please be sure to have a track stickiness tester guy, a backup guy, two door waver guys, a wheelie bar guy, a datalogger button guy, and an entourage of 50+ people who all do everything they can to get in the way of the track staff. Bonus points if your people can obstruct your car and perhaps the car in the other lane when it's time for burnouts AND EVERYONE WEAR A BLACK SHIRT. That way everyone can enjoy the full grudge racing experience! :smt110 :yawinkle:
I never have a problem remembering to turn on the nitrous but I do often forget to turn it off at the end of a run. I like how your data-logger is activated, great idea!My data logger starts when I reach 3500rpm on the brake and records for 20 secs .
I truly believe that having someone put you in the grove is important though . Even though I never have it done .
I dont run nitrous , but I dont see any problem letting someone turn the bottle on and off . I would forget that every fucking time .....lol
First year for a Racepak here. (Shoulda got one years ago) Primarily, I did not want to drill a hole in my car for the switch so I mounted mine on the upper roll bar next to my switch box. All I have to do is, sometime between the burnout and staging, flip the switch. Pretty simple, right? Wrong! Never mind actual racing, I didn't make it thru my first test session to realize that, after 15 years, my routine was not going to include flipping a switch..
Turning the computer on should be the last thing on your mind when you should be concentrating on staging perfect & hitting the tree.
I don't like doing it myself, I have enough to do checking N2O, box settings, relaxing & concentrating etc.
wheelie bar height is very important when you're going fast..... its the difference between bogging your shit down or getting some wheelspeed and the difference in steering the car..... going fast is in the small details. you measure it at the starting line because its flat.... and because thats the only place that matters because thats where you launch the car.Wheelie bars: Adjusting wheelie bars after the burnout. More monkey see monkey do and it screams unprepared rookie, inflated ego or both. There's plenty of time to do this back in the pits or staging lanes. There're tons of arguments about this but wheelie bars are sloppy and height changes with suspension position / load. It's not as critical as people think.
I was going to write something smartass but changed my mind. The fact is, bar adjustments can be made well before the water box and having crew at the line doing things that don't need to be done only holds up everyone else.wheelie bar height is very important when you're going fast..... its the difference between bogging your shit down or getting some wheelspeed and the difference in steering the car..... going fast is in the small details. you measure it at the starting line because its flat.... and because thats the only place that matters because thats where you launch the car.
