How Not to Fail Tech + Pyrotect Changes
« on: February 24, 2011, 08:37:20 AM »
FREE "HOW NOT TO FAIL LeMONS INSPECTION" HANDBOOK

When building your racecar, do you avoid reading the LeMons Rulebook or FAQs 'cause of all the damn words? Don't sweat it: Since illiterates are already welcome in NASCAR, we figure why not in LeMons? Thus our new illustrated free handbook, How Not to Fail LeMons Safety Inspection. Check it out here as a (kinda slow-loading) interactive web doc or in printable PDF form. Your last good excuse for clogging the Tech line has just been removed.

NEW EQUIPMENT IN PYROTECT LeMONS KITS
Here's the bad news: Some prices on LeMons-rate driver gear (the ones in the online LeMons store) have gone up. The good news is, that's because Pyrotect has upgraded a lot of the stuff for us:

1. All "Everything" kits now include lightweight carbon/Kevlar SA2010 helmets and the required-for-2011 fire-resistant socks.
2. The "Marginally Better" kit has become the "Significantly Better" kit, swapping the old multilayer Nomex/Proban suit for a new multilayer all-Nomex suit.
3. Okay, I may or may not have also added a few bucks for the maintenance on my 25th Anniversary Countach. (I mean, have you ever priced out the 10K service on a Quattrovalvole V12? It's ridiculous.)

Cheers, Nick

Help me! I've fallen on the floor laughing, and I crapped myself!

Hey, did you look at page 4 of the PDF file? http://www.24hoursoflemons.com/usercontent/lemons/Handbook/Handbook_PrintFriendly.pdf

The passengers side door bars are OPTIONAL! as well as a few others. What do you say we completely skip those to save as much weight as legal?

Take into consideration the balance of the car. Add weight to the already heavy driver side without adding the same to the passenger side? I realize the engine is a decent weight on the passenger side, but it doesn't come close to countering the weight of the driver. Not even our light weight, Bryan.

We need to take the car somewhere and get it corner weighed, that would be really good to know how balanced it is
