Mid-Summer Car Updates

Jump to Comments

A few changes were made to the car between the Pocono North and Pocono Long races.

New wheels were finally delivered! The new wheels are Kodiak FX type that are lighter and provide better brake cooling than the old Real Wheels did. In terms of type, they’re more of a Gran-Am type wheel rather than a NASCAR one.

In addition, an air conditioner / helmet blower was added to the car. A Koolbox SP is now mounted behind the driver seat and provides a forced stream of filtered and cooled air. I also had to have my Arai GP-5W helmet fit with an air nozzle. The system works very very well and is great given the extreme temperatures inside the race car.
