    Statistically Speaking, Fuel Capacity

    Has anyone looked at power in this case? Having a really heavy but underpowered car could throw a wrench in the system. Not really sure if there is a goal for these statistics to push, but I'm thinking that most people would want the high powered cars to have to stop more frequently for fuel.

    As far as I've seen, there is no rule about lugnuts. Go for it

    Fuel cell rule change

    Exactly You had said that your car is mid engined so it will spin on a different axis. You picked that car. You prepared that car. You Maybe he should have gone sliding off the track, but he still should have put two feet in. Be predictable.

    Fuel cell rule change

    Remember that whole "we didn't pick your car" argument? And I think coming to a stop would be better than moving, even if its in the middle of the track. Isn't one of the main things they say at the novice school "be predictable"? A stopped car is much more predictable than a moving car.
  6. 9.9.2. For Night-time Events: All cars must be equipped with suitable headlights. Headlights may be OEM or aftermarket. This is the only rule stating that a car must have a headlight. There are no rules about windshield wipers, defrosters, or helmet visors. The only rule about tires is that they have to be 180TW or higher, and they can't stick out of the side of the car. The other rules about lights say that you have to have taillights and brake lights, and there is a maximum brightness rating to them. It also said "Night-time Events". It will say in the supps, but that only gives you two weeks to install lights you don't even have. We've read the rules

    Flashy Lights?

    Would having flashing lights be acceptable? I'm thinking something like the LeMans cars have where they flash their lights for a slower car to notify them that they are behind them. Would this be helpful or just annoying?

    Where could we find the correct raw formula? The online calculator is correct but it doesen't say it there

    I've looked at this before and come to some "conclusions": The if statement is saying that if your weight/power is less than 16, then it goes through the then statement. If it's more than 16, it just adds 50 pts. The then statement is the weight/power ratio ^6, then subtracted by 16. This is all then multiplied by 0.032 and 50pts is added for the surcharge. I am not sure why the .032, 6 and 16 are the way they are, but I'm thinking they are just baseline averages that can make the formula accurate for most cars. The ^6 is a large power compared to the regular ^2 and ^3, and that's why you end up with thousands of points if you try to swap in anything more than ~250hp. This is just what I've found, I don't know if this will really help you but here it is.

    Clarification on Spec Miata Penskes

    My interpretation is if you take the 10pts a corner for the coil over kit, you can do whatever you want with springs. They probably added that exemption in so it was more clear that you could cut the stock springs if you wanted.

    True Usually cars with less hp have smaller tanks. Less hp = Slower car Cars with small tanks were made that way on purpose. Less power = less fuel consumption = smaller tank
