Time to re-awaken this old thread! Team Leftover Bananas is looking for another member!!! Mr. usedgeo is leaving us, god rest his sould (he's not dead, just dropping out ). Please reply if you'd like to join!
I vote it stays, heck yeah! its a pretty cool name, IMO
That is my thinking too.
Model: Caprice Classic
Vehicle Type : Gasoline
Curb Weight: 3550 (http://www.geocities.com/onamarie.geo/chevy1985.html)
EPA City: 15
EPA Highway: 22
EPA Combined: 17
Description: Originally had a 305 With computer feedback carburetor, now 350 w/ Throttle body injection, etc, etc.
Wow! 22 highway! My '88 9C1 I never ever got more than 11MPG out of it (that was the 350 with managed quadrajet). I can't believe it's rated at that with new numbers. That's what I got in my slippery '92 9C1 on the highway which I thought was incredible.
Good luck to you sir.
Also, not the place to ask but, what is required to join, as above it sounds like you need to have a 90 day ave for baseline. Also the 'challenge' is a teams improvment in a given leg (or month?) since the last leg? Does that mean one should hold off and do one aeromod per month? Or is this supposed to be fully modded cars and testing driver improvement?
I just joined and I'm still playing with my baseline and slowly checking off a huge list of mods with each gas tank (to get some measure of what helped where), but I would be interested in participating eventually, since I drive like it's a game now anyway and attempt to out do myself when I can, though I should really get a scangauge or some kind of gauge before hand so I can really improve.
itjstagame, we are in need of another team member, I just glanced through the rules and do not see anything about having to have 90 days worth of gas log entries to start. Here is what I read from the sticky:
"Any GS member with a vehicle listed in the Garage, with an active Gaslog, can join a team as decided by the Team Captain, at any time, providing the vehicle and member’s location satisfies all requirements listed. (New Teams may form similarly, with one member assigned “Team Captain” (role defined further)."
If anyone finds something that says otherwise please let me know, would rather know now than later .
If you would like to join the "Right Lane Rollers" let me know and we can get you in the game!
itjstagame, it sounds like you're good to go based on what Fourthbean quoted. I was the one who raised the 90 day question, and only because I noted that each member's baseline was take from a 90 day average. I didn't know if that was an issue or not, so I mentioned it "just in case."
