    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    I have read the Li-ion batteries do have a high risk of explosion if ran completely dead. Also recently had an electrical engineer heavily emphasize this to me on a design project where we use Li-ion batteries.

    Sorry to hear that. On a positive note, it happened in the garage and not on the track.

    I had that problem down the back stretch at Road Atlanta. With 4.30's I was done half way down. Had I been able to turn it to 8K without worry, I could have gained a lot more speed and saved several seconds.

    Oh I am in no way doubting the extremes you guys enjoy with your engines. My engine builder told me I'm good to 7500+. However the cam flattens out around 7K. So I shift between 6500 and 7000.

    Super fun to watch you get around the track. I couldnt help but notice, your tach needle didn't seem to move.

    What was the basis for their comments...fear?

    I feel like that’s a campaign slogan.

    I never understood this rule anyway. These are mostly race cars at a race track. Seems to me most of the tracks are somewhat disconnected from civilization and I would think all of the tracks were present before any civilization came close. So if the noise bothers you, you might not want to buy...

    Atlanta Motorsports Park has the same requirement. I suppose I might not be able to run there. 😒

    So you guys with newer full race cars...do you typically do straight pipes out the sides or mufflers all the way out the back? I know what I would do.

    Good Lord that sounds awesome. I’m just hoping you have a passenger seat and our paths cross at a an event this year. Congrats.
