Good luck.

They have been approved by the SEB for 1/1/17 and beyond. (I said 2017 in the body, but my topic says 2107. I don't think they generally work that far ahead!)

SEB approval is really the hurdle. All rule changes for 2017, these and others made by the SEB earlier in the year, have to be approved by the SCCA Board of Directors. It is my experience that almost everything like this that is approved the SEB is also approved by the BOD. It is also worth noting that 2 members of the BOD are on the SEB and participated in the meeting that approved these classing changes.

As you said, it would be smart not to make changes to your car until they are approved by the BOD and published. I still think we will see lots of FR-S TRD parts for sale soon!

The SCCA has approved significant stock class changes for 2017, including moving BRZs and non-TRD FR-Ss and a bunch of Bimmers, V-6 Mustangs, and other stuff into DS. Lots of TRD parts will go up for sale soon! Some help for pre-981 Boxsters and Caymans as well.

20 cars with 30 second spacing is just 10 minutes; if you spend 2 minutes staging for start and another 2 minutes returning to grid after the finish, you get your required 5 minutes, but it sure doesn't feel like it.

If you work grid at SCCA national events, you are taught that the 5 minutes is measured from the time a a car stops in its grid spot until the time it leaves its grid spot.  The actual rule is not that specific.

Chuck Norris's GPS never tells him to turn around

Chuck Norris doesn't dial the wrong number, you pick up the wrong phone.

Still missing my 4th run, 38.5xx. It was my only run below 39.

Thanks.

David

Check the updated one in the first post.  It has your fourth run, 38.522+1.

Ok. I was not aware of the cone. Damn.

Thanks.

When Chuck was born, he drove his Mom to the hospital.

MC Hammer learned the hard way that Chuck Norris can touch this.

It was probably Chuck Norris.

BTW, Chuck's blood type is AK-47.

I like running by class and it worked well for us at the first event. At the last event we ran the last heat and there were only a few cars and so we were basically hot lapping with two drivers. We gave up our last two runs because there was no opportunity to cool the car. There should always be a minimum of five minutes between runs per the rules. Consideration needs to be given to heat size relative to the number of two driver cars.   

You should never have to give up runs to avoid running in less than 5 minutes. As you say, the rules require 5 minutes between runs. Because we don't have 3-4 grid workers with stopwatches like at national events, it is up to the member to let the grid worker know if you need to be skipped to get to 5 minutes. Grid will need to radio it in so it does not appear you are just randomly running out of order. 5 minutes is measured from the time you arrive in your grid spot until you leave the grid spot.

Paul, you ok with that advice?

The #227 1994 Porsche Turbo is misclassed in SS. It is not eligible for Street Class. It runs in SSP unless modified beyond SP. See Appendix A, pp. 161 and 181 of the 2016 SCCA Rules.

David

You mean 2004 right?


Yep. Thanks. I did the research on an '04 and just mistyped.

Great German engineering:::::

JaJa Franz, sehr gut, lez put tha shtarta in middle of ze engine, so nobodi can find it, und it will take ze porsche shop at least 12 hours to replace ze damn zing.

So, anyway, while I was in there, I replaced ze starter, since ze car had 100k miles.


Too funny. Of course, it would be funnier if it weren't so true.
