It might also be fair if only owner is allowed to drive the car, as its a membership/mrc rivalry, and not how can get someone to drive there car faster.


I think this would be a good rule to add. Basically the times you post must have been made by you i.e. the car owner, not a professional driver.

Anyone else keen on this idea?

Cheers
Jon

I think we\'d all be happy with that as it would help keep the competition good natured and not too serious.

Most always quote fly, if not  arough conversion, as its for comparison, as you is hit what times with roughly what power, will also show the cars capability and the drives ;-) You may see a car in position 4 with 100 bhp more than others, so you know that the drive needs more practise, and it will show guys that are less powered thay have a chance at getting there cars up the board with good practise and driving.


Just thinking about this again - OK,maybe not several tables or groups, but I think a simple column of estimated fwhp may be of use. Yes I know they are estimated  figures, but this is a fun table etc and (hopefully) not too serious! It makes the times and cars a bit more transparent when everyone can see what they are up against! Again, emphasis on "estimated"..... we all know the "not accurate" stories, but it gives a ball park figure.  :)

I see the merits of adding a bhp, but the converting between values has always put me off.

If we can decide on rough conversion values then that will be easier.

Fly -> Fly = no conversion needed
Hub -> Fly = ???
Wheel -> Fly = Wheel + 18%?

Like I said, use it a rough guideline, it doesn\'t really need to be accurate. Just makes it a bit clearer whether someone is running 250 or 350!
I\'ve read on various forums, that tranny loss is around 50hp?
If you want to go a % route, then I might also say, that if you go with an 18% loss, divide the wheel number by 0.82 (wheel + 18% gives the wrong result).

Keep it simple, and don\'t take it too seriously!

Sorry, I meant to say
Wheel -> Fly = Wheel + (18% of Wheel)

Hmmm, I think converting is just too tricky and controversial.  How about we put the bhp figures in as they are known e.g.: -

300rw
300h
300fw

That way the reader can make up their own minds.

 :yes Would be the simplest!  Thumbs up from me!  Again, simply there as a guide!   :D

:) - Chris, well done mate.  If you do something in PHP or similar, please keep in mind the main table - as your table here gets bigger it is just more and more of a pain to work with.

I actually had the large table in Excel, but it won\'t convert properly to HTML when put into the Forum.

Therefore I stuck with doing it in dreamweaver and copying the HTML in (has to be done in a certain way) - real pain!
Thanks,
