  1. Welding a nut on is the way to go. Don't bother with extractors - you'll end up breaking it off, and they are hardened - thus very difficult to drill out. Use as big of a nut as you can - you'll probably be limited by the bracket hole for the socket size. The larger nut ID will make it easier to make sure the weld has good contact with the bolt head. Good luck!
  2. Phase 3, June 21, 2020: Anyone entering Manitoba from designated western Canadian jurisdictions (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and the Yukon, Northwest and Nunavut territories) or Northwestern Ontario (defined as west of Terrace Bay) is not required to self-isolate for 14 days if they are asymptomatic and have no known exposure to COVID-19. https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/phase-three.html
  3. Very cool - congrats on the new gig - hopefully the season comes together so you guys can actually get to a track. I've been rooting for Coyne the last couple years (with Bourdais), the guys this year look promising, hopefully it can keep on the upward trajectory.
  4. And Jordan's set comes in a box! Tough to pass on that.
  5. I looked - sorry it took so long - mine are pull down. The set in the Reynard are pull-up, and expire at the end of this year.
  6. I'm not sure if I have any pull up - but I have a pile of expired harnesses. I will check tonight.
  7. Condolences. He helped me out more than a few times at the track. I'm glad to have known him, albeit briefly.
  8. Thanks Mat, looking forward to seeing everyone tonight! Gary
  9. If it was easy, everyone would do it... http://www.wcma.ca/new/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/2018-WCMA-Technical-Regulations-02012018.pdf https://www.fia.com/file/73846/download/20691?token=-HU9nfAD - appendix J of article 253 https://www.fia.com/sites/default/files/regulation/file/253 (2015).pdf - article 253 Reading the FIA stuff can be a pain in the ass. Lots of cross referencing other documents/sections. Appendix J of 253 has the diagrams and most of the technical details of what you should build.
  10. Thanks to everyone who made that such a great event - it's always a pleasure being 'welcomed home'! The improvements since last year were incredibly noticeable, the positive attitudes were infectious, and it was as big an event as I've seen out there in 10+ years. Good work all! Gary
  11. Do Fortune-auto have a Winnipeg store / service shop / shock dyno? Gary
  12. I'll be there tomorrow evening around 8 - single car, single car trailer. We'd like to pit the two FC's side by side, if possible. Thanks, Gary
  13. It's going to take me awhile to get used to being able to come into the pits from all directions. Great job folks!
  14. I'm sure you've seen this, not much help here: http://www.autocourse.ca/archives/runoff/1974-runoff.htm Which has Bob Beyea as fast qualifier in a Lola T340. There is an article about it here, but I'm not a member, so can't see the full size image: https://newspaperarchive.com/winnipeg-free-press-oct-07-1974-p-55/ Graeme Cameron was, apparently, CASC champ in '74 with a KRB Titan MK6: http://www.formulafordbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/1974-CASC-Formula-Ford-Champion-Graeme-Cameron.pdf Interesting stuff! Gary
  15. I was thinking on the drive home last night... there have been quite a few open wheel fatalities the last few years... maybe I'm completely wrong on this.
