Re: Wider car setup

Multiple factors, but the simple math is wider track = longer lever on the suspension geometry = softer "spring rate" = more grip.

So if you want it to rotate more, and the only adjustment you have is to widen one end, widen the front.

Re: Questions on registering for an Autocross and classes

It seems like the Meyers Manx used to be specifically listed somewhere, but I don't see it listed anywhere in the current SCCA rules. However, "dune buggies" are allowed in BMod, assuming it doesn't exceed other rules about Aero and it's not turbocharged, that's where it would fall in SCCA...

Re: Call for Stories/Info on the History of CSCC

Plus Cypress College, Saddleback College, the Shelby parking lot, College of the Canyons, and Cal Poly Pomona. And of course Lion Country Safari (Verizon Amphitheater). All of those lots except Lion Country would not be SCCA legal these days due to size and obstacles. Many many more. My first event...

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

Depends on your tires.

CSM if treadwear is <140
CST if treadwear is = or >140

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

The Toyos are 140 tread wear which Is legal in CST.
If they were less than 140 you'd be in CSP.

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

The Exige S is classified in SSP.
A tune is ok in this class, but you need to run the stock pulley.

Changing the pulley bumps you up to SSM.

If you had >140 treadware tires you could run it in CST locally. Our run-what-you-brung class for street tires.

Looking for a co-drive for a few months

Hey folks, Finally killed the 'stones on the ST. Rather than buy another set to run until Bill's DP Miata is ready, I was hoping to find a co-drive opportunity for the next few months. I'm a decent instructor with 30 years of experience in just about every kind of car, so I might be of some use to s...
