Re: Congratulations Mr. Porta

Re: New Guy, 06 Mini Cooper S

Hi Jon, First step is to check your car's classing here https://www.scca.com/pages/solo-cars-and-rules . As a fellow NG employee I'm sure you can hunt through the manual and figure out what mods are/aren't allowed. In general though, for new people I would recommend slapping a nice tire on a second ...

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

2009 Honda Civic Si: N/A, Coilovers, CAI, Tuned, K-Tuned Race Header, Straight Pipe. Your straight pipe bumps you from Street Touring into Street Prepared (aka Hoosier-land). If you replaced it with a high-flow cat then you'd be in STX as long as you meet the wheel width/tire size requirements. Che...

Re: Proposed CST pax modifier adjustment

At the end of the day, CST exists in its own little bubble in our region as do many other "catch-all" classes throughout the country. The class is, as stated above, designed to allow the large number of cars in the real world that don't fit the Solo rule sets to run together. We have a ver...

Re: Proposed CST pax modifier adjustment

How about the pax is actually correct. The rule aside from street tires is that is has to be "capable" of being registered, so want I see some active areo sucker cars that weight 800lbs. If someone really took advantage of the rules I think the pax would make more sense. In any case its n...

Re: Proposed CST pax modifier adjustment

To play devil's advocate, CST is not a real SCCA class and doesn't need to be made competitive in PAX with other classes. The lack of rules can allow (on rare occasion) for a well setup CST to beat out a lot of other street tire classes. Personally, I would not be a fan of seeing CST cars out-PAX ot...

Re: PSCC/Morgan Plus 4 Event

On top of that, thank you Brian for being the Event Chair. I think we isolated the timing problems to a new condition. It was either low batteries in the finish lights or a bad angle for the receiving unit toward the sun, but once both of those were corrected the remaining runs were flawlessly time...

Re: Excellent course this weekend

As far as DNFs are concerned, In the 4th group there were several that happened in the first turn around at the exit chute. People would either drive around the outside of the chute or if they set up good and early they would actually go to the inside of the chute. There was also an occasional DNF ...

Re: Excellent course this weekend

Were there any other common DNF areas? I'd like to know so we can consider those carefully for future courses. In the first group, the gate/chute before the last turnaround at the end was probably a third to half of all the DNFs in that group. Yeah that gate was the main culprit outside of drivers ...

Re: Excellent course this weekend

As I told you in person Reed, I too enjoyed the course and thought it was fun. Great way to show that reducing some of the top speeds and mixing things up doesn't mean that you can't still have a fun FLOWING course that appeals to a wide audience. Only nit is holy DNF's for some folks :( Yeah the D...

Thanks guys, I definitely put a lot of hard work into coming up with something fresh and it looks like it paid off. I have to share the thanks with Mike Simanyi and the rest of my setup crew who helped it all come together in a such a short time!

Re: CST Tire Treadwear Rules Change

I think more competitors have gravitated towards CST than CSM because of the open, less-restraining rules for car prep and the friendly-fun competitive atmosphere of the class along with the camaraderie amongst the drivers....plus we don't got enough monies for any R-compound purple crack :lol: :P ...

We probably won't need any extra hands until 8:00 am. No worries on showing up early, you're fine just helping out for the changeover after the event.

Slight change of plans everyone. Looks like we can't get onsite for setup Friday so we'll need to do it Saturday morning instead. Please let me know if you can accommodate coming at the crack of dawn for Saturday morning setup now so I can plan accordingly!
