Re: ProSolo Format

Pro takes best times of both left and right side from both days.
If you no-show for Sunday then your Sunday runs will be DNS and your times will stand based on your Sat runs, iirc.

Also, trying to reg on Sat is tricky. Make sure you get there WAY early.

Re: CST Tire Treadwear Rules Change

Looking 2018/2017 years of overall results say that no one has raced in CSM since 2016. With CST already having very strong large turnout year after year, perhaps we can compromise by tweaking the rules for CSM to restrict tire wear ratings to DOT tires of 41tw and above? That way, if it turns out t...

Re: CST Tire Treadwear Rules Change

Why wouldn’t we just kill csm while we are at it? And why limit the treadwear to 100, why not cut straight to the chase and make the treadwear limit something like 41 (hoosiers are treadwear 40)? Is there a faster autocross tire you know of from 41tw to 200tw than the RE-71R/Rival S? If not, then w...

Re: CST Tire Treadwear Rules Change

I don't really see a reason to really limit CST to 200tw, as the class is supposed to be a "Run What You Brung" class. I can agree that the 140tw is a bit outdated nowadays. Honestly, I am not sure if there is any downside to NOT lowering the treadwear restrictions to 100tw. At this point in time, n...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

looks like you can dunk it in your gas jug too, but it doesn't say what the tolerance is.

I think that russian tester is more meant to help combat watered down gas than for exact octane for compliance reasons.
Maybe SEB should buy one, test it vs its favorite lab

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

at least one can measure octane. I think you can only do that with a lab, correct? Is there any home garage use tool that can be reliably used to help drivers check if their own fuel is compliant? My chemistry knowledge is limited on this, so if there are any such tool recommendations, please share!

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

My take on it is it's not about cheating, but more about broadening our regional inclusiveness.

I would imagine our more serious national level competitors would run per national standards to get their cars sorted for Lincoln.

Honestly as I personally disagree with the recent SEB rule change purposals, I am bias, but I do think Adam's proposal has some merrit.
