AccelRaceTek publishes a monthly newsletter with the latest news and updates from SCCA-E. If you are interested in receiving the newsletter, go to our website and signup in the Blog or Contact section, the link is: http://www.accelracetek.com/blog.

These are some the topics for this months Newsletter are:

SRF Windscreen
The new SRF windscreens are in stock. The new windshield is designed to reduce or eliminate helmet buffeting for taller drivers. The part number and cost is:

1180103 NEW DASH WINDSCREEN KIT $28.00

Wheel Bearing Internal Retaining Rings
There are three versions of the internal retaining rings or "Snap Rings" that hold in the wheel bearings into the knuckles/spindles. The original ring was a piece of spring steel wire, this was used in the original Renault Alliance knuckles and should only be used in the Renault knuckles. The second generation was an "inch" size snap ring. It can be used on the old Renault knuckles and some of the early SCCA-E knuckles, part number 277759. The latest knuckles have a smaller grove and require the latest or 3rd generation snap ring. The newest snap ring is a metric sized ring and is 2mm (.080") thick, part number 277760. If you use any of the older rings in the newer knuckle, they will not hold the bearing in place. The 2nd generation inch version is 2.36mm (.093") thick. The part numbers for the different rings are:

Part Number Description Price
N/A RENAULT RETAINING RING Not Available
277759 SNAP RING - WHEEL BRG $9.00
277760 WHEEL BEARING RETAINING WIRE-THIN $13.00

Thanks again for your timely news that we never seem to get directly from Enterprises.

As for the center section tall driver deflector, or as NASA calls it, the CSTDD, we need Bob Breton to do some wind tunnel testing on it... ;)

Actually, we tried something like this in the Enduro car a while back and I couldn't see over the top of it (or through it)! Fortunately, discovered the issue before we started the 25 hour race! Taller drivers had to suffer in silence (yeah, that never happens!)
