f500 track record

Postby mark vollbrecht » Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:47 pm

I believe Jeff Jorgenson holds the track record for F500 at that track. But there is more then one circuit there. If the car is that fast, that puts it close to FC track record I do not know who holds the FC record. That is according to Jeff that the time he is claiming is close to a FC record. That is one of the tracks he goes to and Jeff is fast. I will get more info from Jeff.

Ive never heard of Eddie being in a F5, I wonder what kind of time he would turn in a properly setup F5 and also how much faster is Ricks car in a F5 form? For example we gained over a second alone just off of suspension redesign. Ricks car is sure enough not like any other F5/F6 ive seen (from the pics thats been posted from time to time). I would love to have his brakes!

Looking at some of the pictures the front end may be a little wide. The tires look to be out side the body-work. IT may be be how the car is setting in the picture but picture 27 sure looks like the wheels are a good two inch out side the body-work.

Clint,

I'm sure Mr. Goodwin meant no harm with the wording of his ad. Since this thread is about parity between the 2 formulas, a claim of 5 secs under the track record is relevant. More importantly, you should take a look around at your glass house before you start throwing stones about factual posts.

The name Rick mentioned as previously holding the lap record was not Jeff Jorgenson. Perhaps Rick's -5seconds was to a previous lap record.

I am very impressed by rick's car and some of the solutions he has found, but there's no way a simple engine swap accounts for a full 5 second difference. I have a feeling that the car and driver would be just as fast with a rotax.

Well according to this post:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=662408

the fastline F600 car only weighs 550 lbs, and Eddie Lawson doesnt look a lick above 150 lbs to me, so it doesnt look like a fair comparison at all. Not to mention the fact that Eddie Lawson is a pro driver whose capabilities probably far exceed the average club racer's.

Because he has voiced 'thumbing his nose at SCCA' since the day he started the project.

Before you get your panties in a wad, I would ask the man. From what I understood, the car was built to whatever the rules where going to be, minus the IIR. When they decided they weren't going with the SCCA project, he built that KSR car.....

The right front is turned to the right, so the front edge is outside, if the wheel was straight, it looks like it would be inside the bodywork....

Rick told me a couple of years ago, when Lawson was testing thE car that the F500 record was over 5 years old at that time.
