I am going to ECTA standing 1-mile at Wilmington, Ohio in June to put the car thru tech inspection only with the purpose of returning home with a to-do list to run in 2015 with safety mods to allow me to run up to 175mph. By 2015 I hope to have the car set to run in the C/GMP class, the corresponding Fuel class (NO2), and the related street classes. I have read the rule book, but there are still some vague areas that I can't seem to get straight answers on, thus the trip this year just to tech. Hoping to meet Mr. Burton Brown there and scour his car and brain for ideas. Going to wannagofast.com 1/2-mile at Clayton, GA this September for some chassis/tire shake down runs. Proving my sincerity by registering and showing up. ECTA is not requiring me to pay registration and they say that they are happy to tech the car. Clayton, GA registration is April 11 and I plan to be standing on the send button at 12:01 midnight in order to get registered.
I have read every post in this thread tonight. I found it interesting that the coefficient of drag is roughly the same for the z with the windows up and the windows down. Am I reading the wind tunnel chart correctly? Seems hard to believe.
I would like to ask Tony D and LVSALT some high speed tire balancing and true-ing questions. After months of research, I haven't found a bit of info on how to ensure tires are balanced and true up to 200mph. Is it appropriate to ask them on this thread, or would you prefer direct contact by PM?
