Phantom

Hi all
At  Toledo last weekend I was in position to watch the Fulgham's
Phantom run through a 30-35 mph right hand 180 degree corner.
This car was lifting it's inside front wheel 4-6 inches off the pavement
for about 70 % of the corner. ( looked like a sprinter, but no oversteer )
Tim reports that it handles well and basically that's the way it corners.
I've never seen anybody else lift wheels ( ok momentarily ).....is
this the nature of a Phantom chassis.....something  broke...?
I didn't get a chance to ask  Tim about it, anybody have any ideas?
Thanks
Dave Phaneuf

RE: Phantom

Novakars and KBS's will do it.  I'd assume the QRE will also. It all depends on how the suspension is tuned.

RE: Phantom

Dave,

My chassis(a '88 Red Devil front end, QRE rear clip) will lift the inside
front wheel also. When and how long it lifts depends on the speed, g forces,
and of course, the type of corner encountered. Mine handles well also :->.

Re: Phantom

Dave,
 I think you're being generous saying  4 to 6 inches of lift. Seemed 
like more from my vantage point. And after negotiating the turn, upon 
acceleration it seemed to lift more. Looks like fun!  There were some 
pictures posted on the Akron Sports Car Club website (autox.net). 
 Anyone who wants to look....Tim's car is the blue #61. Unfortunately, 
right at the apex of the turn, a cone blocks the view of the wheel, but 
it's obviously way off the ground.  

  Everyone who's travelling to Topeka....drive safely getting 
there....and be especially careful on the course...use your brakes a 
lot!!! ;-)

Re: Phantom

from the picture, i would give at least three inches!
I love the phantom flexiflier, especially now that the "grilling surface" has been chopped off of the back.

Howell C. Jones III Sportsmanship Award

Bet you thought I forgot.

Our past coordinators of the Sportsmanship award will not be at the 
Run-Offs this year.  If you would like to nominate someone for the award 
please send your nominations to me by e-mail BEFORE September 16th. I 
know its short notice and I really didn't forget, unfortunately, things 
kept getting in the way.

For those of you who are new and unaware of the Howell C. Jones, III 
Sportsmanship award it was created to remember Howell Jones who raced 
F500's in the Southeast and was a friend of everyone.  Howell was 
President of 2SI (AMW engines) and was killed while racing a 3/4 winged 
midgets at Hardeeville Motor Speedway in South Carolina.  Together with 
his father and sister we have preserved his memory through this award.

Sportsmanship is defined as: Conduct and attitude considered as 
befitting participants in sports, especially fair play, courtesy, 
striving spirit, and grace in losing.

This has been an award given at the Run-Offs each year. Nominations are 
open to anyone in the class who demonstrates the definition of 
sportsmanship, however only the drivers at the Run-Offs are able to 
vote.  Because 2SI has sent a representative each year we ask that those 
nominated be in attendance.  I don't know what 2SI has in mind this 
year, I haven't had time to call them. I'll try to do that this 
afternoon and give you an update.

For the moment, please send your nominations to me at jcook03@...

Thank you,
(Continue reading)
