Topic: Why no electric impacts on pit crews?
Random and dumb, I know, but too many zoom calls in a row and needed a break. I have Indycar practice on in the background and I started to wonder why they don't use cordless impacts for pit stops? Are they still not strong enough?
Quick search online looks like strongest is 700 ft-lbs, with break loose of 1400 ft-lbs. Another quick search shows Indycar lugs are 300-400 ft-lbs maybe?
If I was a tire changer that means I would also be the guy packing up the stuff, and packing an air compressor and a bunch of hoses is probably less fun than a half dozen cordless cases.
Anywho, flame away, discuss away, I don't mind - I'm just happy to be off zoom for minute. :-)
