My attempt to learn more about producing videos myself
- Tire Fall-Off – Could this be the way to ‘fix’ dysfunctional tracks?
- What’s a Throttle Body? – An important change with the introduction of EFI.
- Why Radiators are so Important at Plate Tracks – The radiator pressure rules seem to change a lot at plate tracks: here’s why…
- What’s an Engine Map? – Your guide to what NASCAR engine guys can and can’t change electronically.
- Carb vs. EFI 101 – The basics of how electronic fuel injection differs from carburetors.
- Why Bump Drafting Seems Harder in 2012 A summary of why bump drafting done incorrectly causes so many problems
- How Close is NASCAR EFI to “Real” EFI? NASCAR’s EFI is and isn’t like the EFI in your car. This blog summarizes how the systems are similar and different – and how it affects the nature of racing.
- What’s a Pop-Off Valve? One of the easiest last-minute changes for NASCAR to make is the pressure relief valve (a.k.a. the “pop-off valve”). Here’s everything you need to know about how that affects drivers’ ability to draft.
