I'm gonna be out of town. I'm trying to setup a photo shoot with Travis though for sometime before I leave. We could turn that into a meet.

Centrics look good. Do they come in ZCP/CSL size?
No sir I do not believe so. PFC is supposed to be working on a direct drive rotor in ZCP/CSL size. Did you look at racing brakes option?

Kinda pricey.

Yeah, not really willing to spend $1700 on just rotors. I would want atleast some fancy rear calipers for that price.

Last time I went from a fast car to a slow cart and gained a ton of time on the second time around.

I have a few little things that I think are yours from last wednesday brad, so make sure I'm at said photoshoot.

Here are the Basic Rules

Not including the required safety equipment that you'll need - roll-cage, racing seat, racing harness -- your car must be valued at less than $500. That's valued at, as assessed by the general market, not what you paid for it.

Personal safety gear includes a Snell SA helmet and SFI-FIA certified driver's gear.

Strip out all the interior and take out all the glass, except the windshield. Install the roll cage, seat and harness. Add some numbers and you have just created a $500 race car. Okay, so there's more to it than that, but not much. Read the rules to fill-in the blanks.

You can upgrade the brakes a little but don't even think of adding any trick racing suspension crap. Tires are up to you... as long as they're DOT legal and rated at 190 or higher for treadwear.

ChumpCar has various race formats, but they're all endurance racing... ranging from 7 hours to 24-hours. You'll need a minimum of 4 drivers for most events, and it's wise to have a couple of crew guys as part of the team. Get people on your team that know what end of a screwdriver to use and can think clearly at 3:19am when a wheel bearing starts to disintegrate.

If you cheat or screw-up or both... you'll be docked laps. If you come to Tech Inspection with a car that's worth $1,500... plan on starting the race about 100 laps down from everyone else. You can still run in the race and you'll have a great time... but you'll never win. If that doesn't bother you, you're our kind of Chump!
Ruben, you better learn to drive

I'm gonna spam this thread until we meet up this weekend. Meet up, kick tires, talk smack. Drive for a bit, meet up, grab some grub. Do it all over again. Anyone doing anything? Fast Friday premeet roll in together? Roll out together snag some food?

I'm game for w/e, I rarely get time off over the summer! The car is kinda ready and I'd like to see what it can do. I'll be prepping the car early morning tomorrow! Depends on interest/other commitments also! Anyone else want to throw in some input? I'll never forget the day I met the KC crowd. Was epic, Big Jake, Ryan, Jacob, Sly, Twang, Chris in the S85 V10, was great! First ramp to the hwy.. 140+ KM of couse! Anyone else I forgot!!! KC FTMFW!

No time like the present! I'm down for an old school meet at any place that will have us. I forget the lil bar me and Bigjake met up at. It was a huge VW meet that we crashed! An epic E30 s52 swapped N/A monster was there with 3.73 gears. He didn't wanna go that night. An SS cobalt with an upgraded blower running meth took it too me pretty good that night.
