- Roll cage points assessment changed: Can attach 2 bars to firewall for No Points (Scott, does this help you?) - Also, you can gusset any bar to the chassis within 6" of its termination point for No Points.
potential 'gotcha' is someone who is just barely in class and decides to use non-rcompounds to avoid more points now MIGHT get put into the next class by 1 or 2 points depending on where the car was at before this rule change!
(IE: Someone only has 1 point left to spare in PTE and has Direzza Star Spec tires now would be bumped up to PTD with the same tires!)
I can't afford the $1000 for cams and ECU to make PTE power, and even if I did, my car is way heavy. I would have to spend big $$ (lexan, carbon fiber) to get my weight down enough to come close to you guys at the pointy end of the field. If (and a big if) I can get PTF w/no stars, I can squeak in to F. Not sure I can get the no star thing, but until I ask, I won't know. This plan also allows me to stay in ITA should I want to run there. Cams will knock me out of IT. I suspect my stock motor is putting 135 at the wheels, so there is a slim possibility it might work.
Just trying to be competitive, equipment wise. Who knows, maybe if there is "someone to beat" in PTF, more cars will post.
