    We blew 3 starters before we changed the set of starter gears, and then we didn't blow any. Have you guys done the same thing? For us, it seemed to do wonders.

    Yes, Aprilia engine. I agree it looks like the intake is out of the envelope from the picture, but it is in fact just inside. Don't worry, we have already checked this. Thanks for the heads up...

    Michael,

    We would like to be able to do skid-pads and accelerations, as well as proper autocross. Indoor kartings are a lot too small for that. Also, it is not really possible to run there for a...

    Hi again,

    I made a list of the teams that could possibly help us. They are located in a range of 2000 km from Montreal and have a mild mean temperature for the month of March. Of course, if a...

    We have used a 1/3 psi check valve before, without any problem. And there is no chance of spillage, whatsoever.

    Look on Mcmaster.com. They have some.

    Here are a few pictures of our own car. It was the first time that our 2008 car ran.

    I'm afraid we don't have any picture of the competitors.

    Thanks to the Toronto team. Great event as usual.

    I was wondering if someone captured part of the endurance stream that was on the FSG website? I'd like to show it to our team's rookies so they can get a feel about what is an endurance.

    We got them from TAW. Good service, great price, great caliper. We used Wilwoods before and I don't think of any reason to go back.

    I seem to remember we payed around $60 US each.
