Well it is their playground, and their rules. You can always start your own website and make the playground rules you feel are best. Good Luck !

Good Decision

 

By the way it's all about some super fan who figured out a way to get in free and probably get money from tracks for posting on a web site.  Per the site they ain't even been to a track yet this year and first time out will be after Volusia.  Then this super fan who feeds off putting stuff on a web site gets mad when someone tell him to go away we don't need you and your free loading at our races.

 

Is that close or does someone know the super fan and their the greatest thing since sliced bread?

 

You all know I'm not a speck this or that fan because it hurts regular lower budget racers and shits on established car counts, but your upset over some super fan who proly don't work for a living anymore and found a way to live off of being a fan?

 

yep, i'm probably wrong again

And Franklin rear ends became an official sponsor of Rush Sportsman but I mentioned it here but no response
Im sure if you buy an official Franklin reared of Rush Sportsman your gonna be screwed when you show up at Sarver with it
So be sure you can assume the parts your aloud to have and dont rely on official parts that they are selling

" your gonna be screwed when you show up at Sarver with it "

 

Does DIRT or Lernerville outlaw Franklin rear ends?

 

Here's what I found for Dirt rules:

 

DIRTcar 500 A. The DIRTcar 500 motor is a Developmental Program. Refer to specific bulletins regarding this program in the future B. All 500 engines allowed prior to 2016 must be inspected and approved for competition by DIRTcar technical department. 15.1.9 – Transmission/Driveline and Driveline Components A. Only approved North American and/or Canadian manufactured manual shift transmissions will be permitted. Automatic and/or automatic-type transmissions will not be permitted. B. Overdrive and/or under-drive transmissions will not be permitted. C. Running through reduction gears will not be permitted. The transmission must be direct drive to the rear end. D. The transmission must have working gears. Forward, neutral and reverse must be working. From the neutral position and with the motor running, the car must be able to go forward and/or a backward in a smooth manner. The car must start and move under its own power. E. The transmission must bolt to the bell housing. F. Driveline components made of carbon fiber, titanium and/or other materials (considered exotic) will not be permitted. G. A maximum of two (2) universal joints per driveline will be permitted. No CV Joints allowed. 15.1.10 – Driveshaft A. Only one (1) drive shaft connected from the transmission to the center section of the rear end will be permitted. B. Two (2) driveshaft hoops / rings a minimum ¼”-inch thick x 2”-inch wide magnetic steel must be positively fastened by two (2) 3/8”-inch grade 5 bolts to the frame and/or torque arm side plates installed around each universal joint. C. The drive shaft must have some type of drive shaft cover/shield. Cars with open drive shafts must have a drive shaft tunnel a minimum of 1/8”-inch thick by 6” wide magnetic steel extending from 2”-inches under the front edge of the seat and up the back of the seat 4” covering the transmission, drive shaft and the universal joint(s) and output flange on top and both sides. The tunnel must extend down to the floorboards. The cover must be positively fastened with a minimum of four (4) 3/8”-inch diameter bolts at the bottom connected to a cross-member.

Yet, people keep clicking on the threads, so rush gets what they want, eyes on the sponsors' names.

I don't get why people click on rush posts. Nobody replies. Personally I do not. To me it's just more garbage stuffed down the racers throat. All contingencies have some kind of loophole. There not giving anything away for free.

 Hate to break it to you but this board has been irrelevant for years. 95 % of the stuff posted on here is useless. If people who posted here knew half of what they thought they knew then maybe it would be decent again but racestud has been a joke for years.

Brad Hibbard, (I may have spelled it wrong), had a great thread on fueling safety, and believe it or not, I actually learn from those who disagree with me here, for whatever that's worth to anyone. Tracks and series, not just Rush, and vendors are still active here. So while it may not be very relevant, it seems to still have some relevance left. I've noticed that message boards in general are dying out.

below is the account from my friend and associate whos life was changed in a split second.

you have seen us post discussion on the topic but here is a hand written letter that Ryan has composed with his best thoughts of what happened that day.

 

 

One Moment.

 

 On December 7, 2016, I had an accident in my shop that put me in the hospital with third degree burns to my head, face and the left side of my upper torso. Quite the ride since then, with 40+ days in the hospital and too many surgeries to count.

 

 Not looking for anything other than for whomever reads this to realize that life can change in an instant. I was pouring fuel (pump gas) from a plastic fuel jug thru a large plastic filtered funnel, into the dyno room fuel cell. Something I've done literally thousands of times over the last 18 years.

 

 It was very cold (-15 F) and dry that night. All fuel jugs are kept outside, so I brought one into the dyno cell area and began pouring the fuel into the funnel. A minute or so in, and the fuel started to back up about 1/3 of the way up the funnel, and since I did not want to continue filling, I lifted the fuel jug off the funnel, and at that point, the explosion happened.

 

 The theory is that the flowing fuel was building a static charge in the fuel jug and (since the jug was resting on it) the funnel. When I lifted the jug off the funnel, there was a static discharge. The vapor atop the fuel in the funnel was in a combustible zone, and it ignited.

 

It is hard to convey just how instantaneous this is. You have ZERO time to react. I don’t think I can over state this fact. You’ll just have to trust me on this one.

 

 The next thing I knew, my face was on fire, and when I looked out, all I could see was flames seemingly on my eyeballs, and I could not breathe due to a lack of oxygen. Well, I could breathe a bit, but I could feel the extreme heat in my mouth from the flames on my face and my lips when starting to inhale, so I held my breath while exiting the shop and luckily found a snow bank to dive into head first, mouth open.

 

 The rest is history, interior of the shop was ablaze, and once help arrived, I was flown to the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, AB.

 

 Very well may have been the perfect storm here.... so many things had to line up for this to occur. Perhaps one in a billion.... Whatever the odds or conditions, our lives will never be the same and maybe by reading this, one of you may be spared similar misfortune.

 

 It would be tens of thousands of gallons of fuel that was poured into that cell, using the same equipment. I was doing something that I felt was seemingly routine, but I am reminded every minute of each day that it was obviously not.

 

 Moving forward, I’d like to compile a few points that I feel contributed to this. As I write this, it has been 13 months since it happened, and I have had many on topic conversations during that time regarding how to avoid the issue, and what can be learned from it.

 

 1 – Do not let the fuel can contact the lip of the funnel. But taking this one step forward… (insight from local Karting club CKRC manager Fred Causer) if using a plastic fuel jug, use a metal funnel, and vice versa. This was something Fred learned in his military background with the Royal Air Force.

 

 2 – I always strive for clean fuel, and once you use a funnel with a fine filter screen, you can see how dirty the inside of fuel jugs can be. The fuel was stored outside, and because it was well below freezing, whatever condensation that was in the pump gas was frozen. As I was pouring the fuel into the funnel, this slush was plugging up the filter… slowing down the flow of fuel, causing the fuel to back up. I am confident that if the funnel I was using was not filtered, this would not have happened. The fuel would have been out of the funnel when the jug was lifted off, therefore the vapor would not have been in a combustible zone when the discharge happened. In fact, I strongly believe that this discharge happens far more frequently than we realize… the difference is that without something slowing the flow of fuel thru the funnel, the fuel is usually long gone. I’m not entirely sure how I will be tackling this (lack of a filter in the funnel) in the future.

 

 3 – One good thing was I had on my trusty Mechanix Wear gloves, and my hands were unscathed. I would however recommend wearing some sort of clear face shield, if even to keep any errant splashes out of the eyes.

 

 4 – When pouring fuel, keeping the sloshing down to a minimum will reduce vapor

 

 5 – Grounding cables. This is the most obvious improvement to be made. Would be nice if the fuel jug companies gave us some material on the jug to attach permanent grounding cables, maybe some do? I’ve looked over mine and they don’t. Coupling the jug to the funnel, then to the cell. Do we need a grounding rod also? I get vastly different suggestions from different professionals I have talked to in that field.

 

 Additional and constructive comments are welcome here! I am usually the one in the group who is looking for the dangers and taking steps to avoid them. I missed the boat here. I do feel that getting the word out to as many people as possible… giving them a slight bit of insight into how life can change in an instant, may save someone, somewhere. I am notably scarred for life… more surgeries are in the near future, and laser treatments for years to come. I went to physio 5 days a week for 10 months… and one day while walking up a long hill towards the rehab gym I was lamenting in the thought that all of this has happened, life has been turned upside down… for a split second lapse… just one moment. Oh, I wish I could have that day back.

 

 Be safe,

 

Ryan Brown

You're welcome Brad. It's a valuable topic, and a message I'm afraid that isn't being heeded enough, even for passenger cars.

the static electricity facts 

are something that everyone should be aware of and your right --there is still some good conversation here on RS

I love to here the deep thoughts of DS2 --that guy will actually make your brain burn if you pay attention--LOL

I am not a fan of bashing anything or anyone---yes me and turkey sub have sparred some in the past but I think we have matured a bit since then

I saw where someone said message boards are phasing out and I know its true ---do to the almighty facebook

I hope we can keep racestud going with conversation pertaining to local racing and information

Frankland perhaps??

If you have a concern what is ALLOWED, call RUSH office.

Seems the 'other' series sometimes takes a passive aggressive digs at RUSH in their press releases, but RUSH does not, lack of professionalism by the 'other'..... Just what I perceive.

YMMV.
