New "Tech Talk" Column Available Today on ThisIsBracketRacing.com
ThisIsBracketRacing.com’s latest "Tech Talk" feature is live and available for members as of Thursday, March 22. ThisIsBracketRacing.com hosts several new "Tech Talk" features annually, with topics covering a variety of technical issues, products, and services.
"The goal of ThisIsBracketRacing.com from day one has been to help sportsman racers improve their on-track game from the driving aspect," explained ThisIsBracketRacing.com’s Luke Bogacki. "That will always be the basis of the site, but as we’ve received more interest, we’ve had a number of requests from members for some feedback on the mechanical end: the technical issues of making our race cars safer and more competitive. ‘Tech Talk’ is our answer."
The "Tech Talk" portion of the site focuses on specific technical issues facing sportsman racing, and is presented in a number of different formats. The goal is to bring a specific issue to light, and generally to introduce thoughts and/or products that focus on making that portion of each member’s racing program better.
In this month’s "Tech Talk" column, ThisIsBracketRacing.com‘s own Luke Bogacki discusses brake system technology, with a feature on Moser Engineering‘s new line of Pro Drag Disc Brakes.
"It’s my personal opinion that as racers we’ve exceeded the specifications that the average competition braking system was really designed for. Think about it: the typical drag rear brake kit was designed for 1600 lb. dragsters that run 155 mph (the average sportsman dragster 20 years ago). Today, cars are heavier and speeds are greater. Yet with our 2000 lb, 190 mph machines we’re still depending on the same outdated braking technology."
