Re: 2015 PAX

I thought all the years I ran in Sk the street tire bump was .975 for Pax purposes, I didn't realize it got changed at some point to .98 I think we have to go back to and before 2013 to see what was used. As far as I can tell SK and HisX were not used in 14. Only Street index and Stock index were u...

Re: 2015 PAX

I think "Historic Stock" (HSX using H as an example) had a street tire PAX index like SK1-SK2 and regular Stock (HS) PAX was for DOT-Rs. Then when Street class was added Stock changed (HSR). Now DOT-Rs are gone (except for classes like SP/SM...) because Stock is now gone. So I think now it is just ...

Re: 2015 PAX

Why is Historic Stock broken out separately in the calculator? All the cars are elsewise classed.... they just run amongst themselves... vs their modern class brethren for points. Before 2014 PAX had no prevision for 140 and then 200 TW for Stock. I think "Historic Stock" (HSX using H as an example...

When you get to the end of Trabuco you will see a K rail and possibly a Irvine Police person. It looks like you should turn right. At tha...

+1-1 diameter: good rule. Example: AP1 S2000s have a 16x7.5 inch wheel in the back and FD RX7 has 16x8. Only competitive size is. 225r16, because there is no focus to make fast tires in 16 inch wheel. It kills those cars in terms of being competitive, because they need at least a 245 to be fast. I ...
