100 Days to Indy, episodes 1-5https://mega.nz/folder/BTNXgYaI#WFGoJ7KvjMbyqlIrIy8JKQ
When will racing allow drivers to adjust the car like they do in IndyCar? When will adjustable camber or toe settings, or even vehicle height, be an option on the steering wheel?
>>132115113My friend who I used to go to races with in the 2010s had some pretty entertaining things to say about the vertical stabilizers.
>>132115014God Lexus makes the ugliest cars in the world
>>132115279I don't really mind vertical stabilizers.I like when they make it follow the line of the car, those look VERY good.
>>132115279Planes have both horizontal and vertical stabilizers, and a lot of them can take off at damn near pit road speed.
>>132114623no, let the GT3s exist, but add some GTE, GT1 and especially more shitboxes. This track needs some crazy speedy cars
uhmm thats dangerous
>>132115564It's fine, it's magnetic
>watching winner's interview>quintarelli knows how to speak japanesesugoi desu nebtw Im rewatching round 1
>>132115391>I don't really mind vertical stabilizers. Full stop. They keep cars from flipping and that's enough for me. I mean, I like sexo looking cars but I want the drivers to be able to see their kids grow up. Your pic related is a pretty good example of tasteful integration of what is essentially safety equipment.
>>132115526>This track needs some crazy speedy carsI agree, but if the Manta got clobbered like that Dacia... there would have been blood in the pits.
>>132115526>let the GT3s existthen they need to let the slower cars exist and stop whining about it. imagine being mad that slower cars exist in a multi-class race.
>>132115606ronnie hss lived in japan for a gorillion years now
>>132115022>it's a katherine legge's butt in tight yoga pants episode
anyone else watching COPS on Fox Business after this? Love that show.
>>132115651That is the nature to be at the 24h Nord. There will always be casualties and those can hit hard. In multiple ways.>>132115713desu ne there is always one driver complaining about the slower cars each year. I doubt that each driver complained that there are some slow classes in this race.
>>132115610For me the best SEXO prototype will be the Audi TDI's.

What struck me most was that the sound of the intake was louder than the sound of the exhaust. It made me think of a giant vacuum cleaner running around the track. They were open to back then, too. The only thing I didn't like about them was they were basically the Toyota of thier day.

>Prize money for winning ARCA @ Charlotte was $19k>tires cost around $12k total>still have to pay pit crew, hauler driver, etcI know there's no money in racing but sheesh. With prize money like that it should be no surprise why all the family-owned teams bailed on ARCA
>>132127962all drivers have this anon, in any category, its for when the race engineer says "crash at T9" and the driver can just look at the map and see where it is
>>132128873thats why sponsors exist
>>132127962This is an incredibly common practice among professional drivers.
can someone explain to me why all GT3 rear wings from the start of the 2010's went from being screwed from the bottom...
>>132130236...to the top? yeah I know its aerodynamics and shit, but wouldnt it be worse?
I really like the HUD overlay F1 is using with the turn and speed and throttle/brake. Really cool view being on the front wing.
>>132130455it's on the halo,to hide the halo.
Big fire at Fuji, not sure what car yet
>>132130617No, they had a view from the front wing near the ground. HUD was on the track.

>>132130236>>132130292I think it allows a wider variety of adjustment angles or something, idk.
>>132131028pls be the Hydrogen Corolla
>>132130236>>132130292The flow beneath the wing is more important than the flow on top of the wing due to the disturbence of the pressure zones. The zone beneath the wing is more sensitive to it and you lose more downforce when you mount it there. From what I remember at least.
I may hate my shit ass country, but i will never replace the IPIRANGA with with murica forced singing anthem
>>132130292>>132130292Most of a wings downforce is generated by the bottom of the wing, swan necks clean up the flow on the underside, thus creating more downforce.Here's some good reading on why they exist and how it works http://www.mulsannescorner.com/rearwingLMPCFD2009.html

>>132140024Too bad RFK will never do that hololive sponsorship though.
>>132140041If we ever get Honda as a OEM now that they left F1 for good, who knows.
>>132140033Technically no. They have leased, bought, and sold charters so one of the two they currently have is the only one bottom 3, after this year.

>Kryle sperging over Autism Dillon winningWe deserved better
Honda never left at all, they just conned F1 into freezing the engines after they finally built something better than Ilmor and took the big decals off the cars to save money. 2026 has a simpler hybrid system and a cost cap so they can easily afford it.
odds of any racing in Charlotte today and tomorrow?
>>132141456Was it really that hard to find a picture of the current race car for reference
>>132141375Anon what are you talking about, Ilmor has no part in F1, you're thinking of AMG, they sold their facilities to Red Bull, and their support after doing so didn't really save money. This whole thing was them pulling out of F1 and then new management doing a 180 because going through with leaving was downright embarrassing given Red Bull's success.
>>132141413slim, forecast for monday looks promising so they could get both in one day, the 600 in the day and xfinity at night
>>132141456Actually wait it gets funnier because most of the old cars have a 3' tall neckless midget driving because they thought they should be hidden in the car like the aeroscreen, my sides.
>>132141653Actual AMG has nothing to do with F1 and never has, what the fuck are YOU talking about. Ilmor was bought out by Mercedes 20 years ago, then sold part of the company back to Illien and Penske to do Honda IRL engines, they're still on opposite corners of the same roundabout.
>Red Flag at the 24h Fujiwas that crash really that heavy?
>>132141456As much as I like the idea, the execution is horrible.
>>132141865Anon AMG owns a third of Mercedes' F1 team.
Also by the way "Mercedes AMG High Performance Power Trains" address is Morgan Drive and Mercedes Avenue, kek>>132141991No it doesn't, it's 1/3 Toto, 1/3 Daimler AG, and 1/3 Ineos, and before that Daimler had 60%.
>>132141880Only saw the aftermath but it looked kinda bad, they said the barrier bent pretty badly and it will take a while to fix
>>132141880It didn't look like it, but I think they said there was a lot of debris and needed to fix the fence
>Fuji delayed until the top of the hourFuck this.
>>132141880big barrier damage, race starting next bing
>>132141880>>132142200small series please understand
Lets see>F1 gets cancelled due to syndicate terrorism and rain>Coca Cola 600 gets Delayed due to rain too>Indy 500 becomes the main highlight of the day and delivers kino on par with 89-93 fittipaldi and Little Al vs Johncock
>>132142223>Indy 500 becomes the main highlight of the dayBut that's already what it is even when Monaco and the Coke 600 run.
>>132142396people who doesn't watch it, will end up watching it tomorrow, i see even bigger ratings than normally is.
>>132142460I admire your optimism and hope you're right, but the race typically gets the most viewership of the three in the US. We will see about Europe.

Fuji 24h>empty seats>no bbq>no flags>commentator talks like a news reporter>every spectator is in the tent>camera shaking around too muchWhy Japanese can't make a comfy event like the Nürburgring 24h or Le Mans?
Luton FC holy shit...
>>132146265Keep in mind it's still early in the morning there so many are still asleep or haven't made it back to the track yet. This is also a very new event, only ran since 2018 so not as much history as those races. The track itself I think is too wide/smooth with too much runoff (basically it's too modern) for this length of race with the slower cars, so there's very little of the chaos that makes endurance races so kino.

>>132147407I went to Fuji Speedway in 2014 to a R31 Skyline meetup. Easy to get there by train and bus from Tokyo. They had very delicious yakisoba food stand there, I bought two portions because it was so good. There is a shop too where I bought a keychain. And you can see part of the historic fuji speedway too. I would say it's worth it to go. Also obviously it's close to mt fuji, so there are some great views. And check the parking lot, I saw a random HKS R32 parking there. Behind the race track there is also a drift practice area if you are into watching those.

Somehow in this dire economic and cultural time a Japanese endurance race is still packed full of Japanese cars, but if you watch the American equivalent of this there's like two Camaros and everything else is imported.
>>132149799Because Americans don't build cars.
>>132149799>the American equivalentthere is none, other than the 24 Hours of Daytona also being 24 hours. the classes are totally different. at Fuji, GT3 cars are the fastest class, at Daytona, they are the slowest. there are no classes for production cars at Daytona, and even if there were, American car companies don't even make normal cars anymore like >>13214995 said. just sports cars like the Corvette and Mustang, trucks, and SUVs.

>>132150871Are teams limited to one GTD Pro entry or was every team running in GTD Pro with a second GT3 doing an Am entry for the other by choice?
We need to coordinate a pirate Floracing stream.It's ridiculous no one has one.
>>132151087yeah they really need to work on that for future races. the audio from the circuit is mixed way too low.
>>132151145none of that shit is worth watching, otherwise you'd be able to find streams for it. wish they'd remove it from raceday.watch, all it does is clutter up the race list.
>>132151162Yep, I'm watching the Japanese stream for the vroominess .
>>132151145No we don't, I can watch Flo broadcasts fine :^)
rear wing end plate broke offFCY

Thank god for the halo
>>132151162>>132151087twitch channel heard you
>>132151800*Looks like it's just for certain cameras? Not sure
>>132151895some cameras don't have microphones, but the ones that do, the sound was way too low. looks liked they turned it up
>>132150846I mean, it would just be an LMP car with asymmetric aerodynamics, balance and suspension geometry.
Based 4 on the floor
>>132150871The GTD teams regularly finish ahead of the GTD-PRO team, which is a large part of why the distinction is going away.
How different is the NSX chassis vs stock?
>>132152178the NSX GT3 has hybrid system removed, rear wheel drive only, lots of weight reduction, etc. but at least its still mid-engine, unlike the Super GT GT500 version of the NSX, which had to have the engine moved to the front because of the rules.

>tfw not camping trackside at Fuji with a Japanese gf
>>132152333What engine is in the SuperGT car?I liked the GT300/500 shenanigans back when the NA2 and MKIV were racing, thought it was kinda fun how the different teams swapped engines around. Do any other teams do this now outside fo the NC1?
>>132152718The Toyota CEO?
>>132152775>What engine is in the SuperGT car?HR420E https://honda.racing/super-gt/machines/nsx-gt
>>132152808No, the Nissan CEO.
What kind of animal got splatted earlier in the race?
>>132152808yes.well technically former CEO, but current chairman of the board of directors. Koji Sato is the new CEO since April.
>>132151145there are consitantly 10+ races live at once, it would be impossible to restream them all>>132151186kinda but some of it is, I like chucking random late model races on like that one last week where the girl chimped out and wrecked the guy under caution. bowman gray weekly races are fun too and the modifieds. anyone who cares about that sorta shit probably already has flo I am enjoying it more than nascar now

this no commentary kino coming up on 3 hours to go is very comfy

enough with all this chit chat I'm switching to the English stream despite that the translators are weeb spergs
>>132157394they switched commentators on the English stream a bit ago, RJ O’Connell actually knows his stuff unlike some of the other ones. and his voice kinda reminds me of Bob Varsha.

Why is the English stream so sleepy, bros?
>>132158601The have nothing meaningful to say in that language
>>132158632weeb.I can only listen to the Japanese commentators say>hai, so desu ne"yes, indeed" over and over for so long without getting annoyed
>>132158680I can't deal with this series outsourcing to north american loony troons the task of english translation
also I stick to the English stream so it gets more viewers which will maybe convince Super Taikyu that the interest is there and it's worth the effort to improve the production quality for future races

Why does that one English commentary guy have Karen hair?
>>132159173it's why they are running the experimental hydrogen Corolla in Super Taikyu.https://www.autosport.com/le-mans/news/le-mans-wants-hydrogen-only-top-class-by-2030/10474306/they will have a huge head start over other manufacturers on hydrogen technology, leading to many more years of ToyotaWinsLol in Le Mans/WEC.
since the 1980s all corporations kneel to Toyota's model
>>132159200hair aside he's the only one of the English commentary crew who knows his stuff
Mercedes shouldn't have sold Rookie Racing that car, now Toyota will steal their secrets and the new Toyota/Lexus GT3 car will wipe the floor with them
>>132159290It's a fucking GT3 car there are no secrets.
>>132159315true but not true. sure the specs on all the cars are out there already, but the Mercedes-AMG GT3 is one of the most successful GT3 cars. it makes total sense for Toyota to have Rookie Racing run one to get hands-on experience on what makes a GT3 car good, so their new GT3 will be better than the Lexus RC F has been.
>>132159219>hydrogen internal combustion engineShelby was a visionary
>>132159443this way we can have alternative energy, AND nice vroom sounds. unlike with electric cars.
>>132159470fuel tanks go big boom need safety materials
the other thing about the upcoming Toyota/Lexus GT3 car is, it's being designed as a racing car first. there will be a road version eventually, but that's secondary.this could be the car that breaks GT3, like how the homologation specials of the 90's broke GT1. pic related
>>132159522you can't break a class where no actual proper racing occurs
>>132159393mercedes spent lots of time tweaking the lay-out for easy set-up changes and great abs&Tc to make it easy to drive.The amg gt was a shitter in his early years.There is no secret just years of optimizing your lay-out and you can't just copy that since it is mostly solution specially for the amg.

>>132159728thiswhat good is a car if it doesn't go vroom?
it should be required for all automotive company executives to be car guys/amateur race drivers, like Akio Toyoda.
>>132159743eCars scare the fuck out of me I see them everywhere they make no sounds and their sensors record you relentlessly
>>132159778I see a few Teslas or other electric cars here and there where I live but they aren't super common yet. hopefully never.
>>132159802they creep and crawl like cockroaches where I am I need to move the self driving robotic drone taxis are really freaky
>>132159821electric cars are lame, but self-driving cars are an whole nother can of worms. they need to be banned immediately. it's retarded to encourage drivers to take their hands off the wheel, people already drive while distracted too much.how can you ban cell phone use while driving in the name of safety, but allow self-driving cars? it's fucking stupid.
>>132159858oh I've seen some shit with the self driving and driving assist AI over the past few yearsIt's funny when the algorithm fails and the AI freaks out in construction zones where only cones and barrels define the travel lanes. hopefully they solved those problems by now
good race makes up for missing the nuburgerking 24

What race has nose cam footages/archives. I have Tisms for it.
>>132154900I think F1 and NASCAR are fine to include in the OP. They are major events a lot of anons are going to watch and it's good to know where they fall with respect to other races. I, for one, will watch F1 because occasionally something interesting happens in P 3-15, the Indy 500 because IndyCar is some of the best racing going right now and the Coca-Cola 600 because I need background noise while I do housework, kek. Thanks for baking, OP. Thanks to spreadsheet anon and thanks for the stream linking anons. I was never able to watch as much racing as I have been since I found these threads. Now if only I could in2 NASCAR... I'm still trying!
>>132159773THIS. Met Jim Farley (Ford CEO) in the garages during Rolex 24 weeks this year. Seemed to be a low key motorhead guy at heart. He hoofed his Mustang around the circuit pretty damn well in the VP Challenge races.

Have to admit Monaco in the rain is kino
NOOOO YOU CAN'T MAKE US RACE IN THE HECKIN RAINERINOOOOOOITS TOO DANGEROUS FOR A MILD SHOWER IN THE SLOWEST RACE ON THE CIRCUIT NOOOOO
F1 is such bad racing. Honestly don’t understand why anyone is a fan.
>>132170908Global sport. The rest are simply too localized except maybe Rally.
>>132171187So what? Ok, it’s global. But it’s the most boring racing series on the planet.

>>132171823My biggest hope is that Hyundai RELEASE this car so we can get retrokino looks back as norm
>>132172320>concept car>realeasingIt is just a playground for the engineers. Other manufacturers do the same for the sake of the engineers not to design only soap blob cars in their work time.
>>132170908>F1 is such bad racing. Honestly don’t understand why anyone is a fan.>>132171187>>132171486>>132171904It's just racing for normie sportsfags who just get off on the monkey brain us vs them aspect and lack either the interest or ability to understand motorsports at a deeper level.
>>132171823What if the DeLorean had a gay retarded young brother wit C4 Corvette wheels? But seriously, as long as it's rear wheel drive, I'm on board.
>>132172749You mean what if you made a delorean that wasn’t a gay retarded meme mobile
>>132172857IDK, that thing is still kinda gay and retarded. The only thing that would save it would be if it's power to weight was something reasonable and they actually figured out the cooling situation.
>>132171823That's just a Delorean ripoff tho.
>>132172590Unironically this car REALLY made Hyundai think about selling it, it is a true design in a sea of Malaise SUV 2.0: LELectric edition.Also this gordon smiley anon GLOWS

Indy thread is absolute garbage, as usual
>>132179038Just like my islanders
>>132179785>>132179996not a single post in any of these threads is worth reading or responding too, it's all retarded shitposting and shitty bait, no actual discussion of the race.
>>132180290maybe it will get a little better when some of the /f1/ shitheads get bored and leave, but I doubt it.
>>132180440>maybe it will get a little better when some of the /f1/ shitheads get bored and leave, but I doubt it.I hope please.
>>132180466the quality of the Indy 500 race threads started getting bad in 2017 when Alonso tried the race for the first time, and it's been getting worse every single year. and now that Grosjean is a full time driver it's every single race on the schedule with this shit.

>>132180214haven't been here since last year, wow it's worse than i could have imagined
>>132188710yeah there's basically no point in posting in the thread during the 500. the other IndyCar race threads get shit up pretty bad too. /sp/ is only good for sports car/touring car racing now.

>>132188254Still raining. They're hoping for a 8-830 start, but more likely it gets postponed
>>132190585Is it even going to happen? People keep mentioning how the weather sucks there atm.
>>132190585Fantastic, thank you.
>>132190509projected start 8 to 8:30 local, though bob pockrass mentioned nascar doesn't really like races to go beyond 1:30am so if it doesn't stop raining by 7 they'll call it
>>1321906123 inches of rain in my gauget. hour from charlotte
>>132190640oh man, I hope is not canceled, still feeling like watching some more motorsport today
>>132190640Id say its 100% going to be called since tomorrow is a holiday.
>spend 3 weeks crying about how bad F1 is then get the Indy "save fuel for 450 miles then race 1 lap"Honestly I'm blame these fags and the karma they generated for the awful race I just watched, worst shit since Dario winning in the rain a million years ago. Race control was about 90% as incompetent as the F1 shits have been this year too with them somehow burning 10 laps on the first red flag and waiting until everyone drove through the wreck for the last one.
>>132190661Satellite shows that the clouds are dispersing and going north by 6pmhttps://twitter.com/NASCARONFOX/status/1662921584837898240this race will last til midnight like gordon's fuckfest with the t-rex
>>132190856Nah the race was good LTT ginger fatso.
>>132190856based knower. shit was nascar tier
>>132189674guess the wiggle doesn't work this time
>>132190912You have literally no standards. For a long time now Indy has been a "set yourself up for the last 25 laps and then race" deal, and this year there just fucking wasn't any last 25 laps.
>>132190989Times change maplenigger.
>>132190856>worst shit since Dario winning in the rain a million years agothat wasn't bad though >somehow burning 10 laps on the first red flag and waiting until everyone drove through the wreck for the last oneiirc from the rule is they have to do 1 lap under yellow before going to red, but yeah RC was usac tier, the 3 red flags were unnecessary
>>132191057I thought the rules said they couldn't throw a red with 2 to go either so what the fuck does that matter.
>>132190856cope. that shitshow was still miles better than current F1
Ferrucchi finished on the podium. not that anyone cares about the "podium" at the Indy 500, and I don't feel like looking up the stats for dozens of drivers, but that's gotta be the closest that Foyt as a team has come to winning a race in over a decade, right? their last win was Long Beach 2013 with Takuma Sato.
>>132191121Bourdais had 3 top 5s, Kanaan finished 3rd at Gateway in 2019. As shit as they are they haven't been -that- bad.
Sitting in the Charlotte parking lot waiting for the rain to end. The only entertainment I'm getting is watching that butthurt German sperg out
>>132190856How's your driver doing? Enjoyed watching Stroll be the best leaf driver?
>>132190856Minus the ending you can't deny how good of a race it was.
>>132191153that's right, I totally forgot that Sebastien Bourdais drove for Foyt for awhile. I remember Tony Kanaan driving for them though.
>>132190856I fully agree that the finish was some Nascar-tier Mickey Mouse garbage, but it's so fun watching Europoors mald that I don't care.USA USA USA USA USA
I think they were gonna let it end under yellow until they saw how the cars had to squeeze through the track because of the safety vehicles and had to throw the red
>>132191101it literally says they can do whatever the fuck they want
>>132191320Ah yes the classic "we got called out for not enforcing the rulebook properly so we just took all the rules out of the rulebook" move.
>>132191179Robert Wickens is the best current Canadian driver despite being paralyzed, he's been winning races in IMSA Pilot Challenge in the Hyundai TCR.
>>132191347they learned well from 2002
>20 sports channels>not a single one broadcast nascarI'm tired of the desert tribe
>>132191167I don't get it. Euros claim to not care about some "dumb american race", but spent all 7 threads seething about F1
>>132190862love how the Chevrolet or Honda engine janny gets to celebrate as part of the team when the car they are assigned to wins a race
Also by the way if they don't start making weaving below the white line illegal I am going to assume they literally want to see someone hit the pit wall head on and/or crash through the pits at 220mph.
>>132190856Kind of agree. It was fine with the red flag for that fly over tyre. The rest of those reds felt more like to make it an entertainment show instead of a race. Guess that is the american way to make a "race"
>>132191529>Roger Penske owns the track and the series>a Penske driver weaving below the white line allowed him to win the raceconflict of interest.also on the topic of safety, in the post race interview, Roger called it a "safe race" which I thought was a bit tone deaf after that tire flew over the fence. true, nobody was hurt (except that guy's car kek) but that could have been a disaster.
>>132191642The real problem is1) from 4th back you can't fucking pass after 2 laps2) IndyCar restarts have been flagrantly retarded for a long timePut those two things together and you get complete and utter retardation after every wreck, which was compounded by the amount of laps they wasted meaning they had no time left to wave off even more retarded than usual starts.
>>132191684we're lucky we didn't see a dozen people get decapitated. that was fucking too close
When they red flag a race, do they sweep the entire track?If they do, then I'm all for the shootout as all lanes are open.
>>132191775They sweep under yellow too
>>132191414Hasn't started yet, just use the halal stream.
SOMEONE MAKE A THREAD FOR COCA COLA 600
>>132191806It starts in 30 minutes, cool your tits leaf.
>>132191529>>132191684I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure that Ericsson did the same thing last year for what it's worth. A rule might be in order, but this isn't a one-off kind of a thing at least. I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a part of me that wanted to let it stand though. I have a bit of a soft spot for keeping the rulebook as thin as possible and just let the drivers sort it out on track.Personally I'm more concerned about the tire that got yeeted over the catchfence though . I'd rather like to see the analysis on how that sheared off like that since they're specifically designed to not do that.
>>132191800I just don't know what criteria they use, some of the races are broadcasted here
>>132191894I'm pretty sure I bitched about it last year and it's only going to keep getting worse. Indy has quite possibly the least safe pit lane on Earth as it is with the straight shot entry and low pit wall, they don't need to push the issue.

>>132191894just pulled it up.Yeah, lap 199 he dipped below the pit entrance to break to tow to O'ward.Really they need to reconfigure the pit entrance to be over to wrap around from the short chute. Putting a rule in place is really just a patch job on the problem.
