  1. I do I do. Personally, I do want classes. I don’t love the classes now but they are something people can build to and try to run well within. Nor do I think class wins should get you to the Chumpionship (you’re on your own here Rich) I also think that ½ the field is typically slower than 110% to 115% of the fastest classified cars lap. These cars are not in it to win it. Some times they and steal a class win but really this is a story of the haves (fast) and the have nots (slow). Is the solution points based classes? Or do we literally just give participation troph
  2. @frankrehnelt , Thank you for posting video to the youtube. I had no idea what/who happened to preform a perfect pit maneuver on me. Very minor incident, but I just wanted to know so I hunted your vid down. Looks like the green e36 driver over estimated his front-end grip and pushed out into me. The 901 driver did an excellent job avoiding our mess. Not crying. Not yelling. Just glad to see it from another prospective other than my memory. This was just a racing incident I am happy to have clarity on it. Thank you, team 901. 20min and 20 seconds into
  3. Why not a lifetime ban for the person in the car at Daytona? (I am a fan of) Why extend to the others on the team? (I am not a fan of)
  4. NCM has a lot of bumpy curbs… might be an additional part of the problem. My suspension failure on Sunday was while I was tracking out on the Tiger Tooth at the hair pin. (Driver induced mechanical failure)
  5. I personally had a lot of fun at NCM. Thank you Champcar! This weekend was a perfect example of why I have let my SCCA competition license expire after 20 years. For a similar entry fee to a double weekend… tires… what not… we got 11 hours of track time (of a possible 15) for the same cost as an SCCA event. I personally got about 6 hours of seat time. Not six thirty min sessions but Six hours. I love it. Champcar rocks. I loved sharing the track with all you nuts. Even when the car broke on me late both days I was getting out of the car smiling. Bec
  6. Read Bill's notes on the NCM event page. twice he clarifies that it will be used at that event. So... if your Mazda is going... do the math.
  7. math is common sense... or is it too hard? you've got 2 weeks before NCM to do the math... I have faith you can do it by then.
  8. Yes (I THINK) rear wing value needs to be adjusted. 10 points is too low. I have never believed aero matters at our speeds till... one car proved me wrong.
  9. Last year I asked to adjust Aero points because of your car, my petition was shot down. Yall are impressive, and I think the rules need to be shifted because of your achievements.
  10. I think the NA data backs a review of the platform both in points & swap weight. (politically I think the swap weight is easier to adjust)
  11. @Cam Benty I am glad the 93 Mustang Cobra got points. I think more cars need points. Here are the numbers from last year... the 93 Cobra has 4 podiums with 2 wins in 37 races. (All by one team I think) The SC300 has 6 podiums by different teams (but only one win), yet I would like to see it get about 25 more points. Only one team won last year with a 944 and it could only win 7 hour events. (might have a fuel strategy advantage for the odd hour event) The Altima got 15 points added with only one win. (And I'm glad it
  12. SOLD. Shipping out west to run with LuckyDog.
  13. Our 2000 Lincoln LS started at 3743 lbs... it is slow... and races at 3100. good luck getting a fat boy down into the skinny zone. I couldn't do it and my car 'has no ass'
  14. Tire width beyond "x" should be points....
