I was not just referring to you with that post...the same things have been stated numerous times during this "debate".yes I am for sure beating a dead horse. Its not just that you beat the horse but you have to know how. I have refined the art of beating a dead horse for many years, pretty dang good at it now. LOL
But its been a fun 20 pages. Haha
will RG demand a station attendent' check under the hood'??, and fill the windshield washer bottle??I think we found the answer. We have someone create gas stations in the desert, one way only, and have regular pumps full of race gas and trucks just line up to get filled. No transporting fuel, no PP to explode, to dump cans to leak. Just remember not to top off. lol
I’m sure COSTCO would be all over this since the lines would basically what their stations are like anyways.
Not dissing John above, just came to mind in the theme of dead horse beating.
Edit: we have 9 more pages of this before we get to the amount of unproductive debate as we had in the 2014 thread.
and the reversed engineering of the big beautiful wall will be a booger, your right, Baja will be the sanctuary in the future when Off the grid will be a way of lifeDid the Wright brothers have a pilots license? FAA clearance? Innovation & therefore safety come from permission-less products like PP.
a committee never started a successful company. A camel is nothing more than a horse designed by committee, which is what NASCAR F1 & American life have become. We will all be living in Baja soon to enjoy steak & sound of V8 engine.
pp teams should get a designated area for pitting, makes sense rDc?Acme,
My FAA comment was directed towards insurance. I have a Twin engine rating and as far as the FAA is concerned I can fly any twin engine aircraft that does not require a type rating. But I can’t get insurance unless I take a make and model initial training course. My Point is that the government is pretty open with the rules but the insurance companies are not.
The rest of the points have been argued enough. Comparing NASCAR or Formula 1 to desert racing is a waste of time. The fact that we set up and tear down pits in a hurry is what adds the extra risk. I agree on a fixed pit a tower may be the best option. Or even a pumped fuel option would work.
I was mostly being a smart a$$ on the don’t use one or be next to one if you don’t want to comment. I really wanted to bring our PP to Parker so I could put up some big signs that say “stay away this thing can blow at any minute, danger” haha. So maybe now we won’t get people crowding our pits.
the reality is education is key and I think that’s up to the racing orgs to work out. BITD rules already say all PP systems have to be approved. So they are already trying to make sure each team knows what they are doing. I had to go thru a process to get our fuel cell approved by BITD when we made the change. So it’s not like everyone is just looking the other way.
