We were there for the top 10...it was pretty insane...but real fun to watch....not sure on distance from course...but there was a 90 that was very sketchy.
Low MilesWe didn’t make it. Fuel pumps gave out at RM50 and they limped to 108 and got stuck. Not enough power at 5psi to keep from getting stuck. So we called it. Super bummed.
Truck was doing great for the first 50. Haha need to find 50 mile races.
easy turn around
silver state here you come!
Have you disassembled them? Another racer had fuel tank foam dissentagrate causing filters to clog and pumps to fail.yeah. The problem is we don’t know what our issue is. Pretty sure the pumps failed but not sure why. We have replaced the system many times and it fails at 50 miles of racing. We switched to pump two and it failed about 20 miles after that. Then limped with both pumps until we kept getting stuck being low on power.
I think it’s possible that the pumps themselves failed and could not take the abuse. The only scary thing is if we replace the pumps with a proven pump will it make it the entire race. That’s a lot of money and time to risk as a test. We don’t have a area in Utah that we can test at race pace for 50 miles.
we tested the night before the race for 20 miles and it was perfect.
Not back home yet and still on the road so have to re group and come up with a plan.
How many 6100 teams are racing on E85? Is that what’s killing the pumps? Or are you on regular gas now?
Robby has experience being penalized for pit violations, can’t blame him for calling out others.
