    Are they truly people or possibly bots / similar queries? It's hard to believe there were 107 people on here at one time lately.

    I absolutely won't disagree that the cost of tires is a big factor in many peoples' budgets. Personally, when the street tire proposal came out I didn't have enough concrete evidence it would truly...

    I believe the IT-7 attraction just begins at the street tires though. It seems like the group has fairly basic cars and are not taking the prep to the limits. Meaning they have modest build costs,...

    The Blethens primarily run street tires on their RX-8s and have done well for themselves. ;)

    I would think determining how much weight would be challenging. And I already began thinking about which tracks I'd sacrifice the weight for better cornering and vice versa.

    Oh boy. I better get a credit card with a much higher limit.

    FWIW, on my previous ITB car there would have been some benefit to have fit it with rear drum brakes based on some pretty credible...

    This is Chris from CT, right? Think so but am not positive. Assuming so, the desire to go to NASA in the N.E. is an interesting one. It sounds as if they like having a "race car", probably one they...

    You have a lot of excellent points there Jim.

    Would you be willing to write and article about your regional experiences?

    As someone whose worked with the national office on this very subject, I wouldn't say ignoring. For several years, the National office and some regions have been quite supportive of the resource I...

    I think the biggest challenge is we have too many events and tracks luring entrants, which is a good problem to have. If someone doesn't like one track, why go there just for a "championship" when...

    Absolutely agree. I don't even know who won in my own class! LOL That's pretty crazy about SM; didn't know that.

    Have you lost ALL respect? How dare you leave out Hairy.

    Is there a general feel for how many people truly pursue the championship, versus happen to be included in the points since they happened...

    With the first car I built, I had the switch mounted on outside of the car with the thought process that the corner worker could easily reach it if need be.

    I got into an accident at Lime Rock,...

    So you could have a really weak but large field made up of cars not even built for the class, and it could kill your chances by DSU (not showing up). Ugh.

    I was not a fan of the National / regional distinction, but think the Majors program works. I have not been to a majors event and honestly have little motivation to attend one. Butch and others who...

    That's where I went, but based on Butch's comments I was somewhat expecting a separate site linked from SCCA's.

    Where is the Majors website? Went to the SCCA site and can't figure it out. Or is that section of the SCCA website considered the Majors website?

    THIS is one of SCCA's big issues (not saying the...

    Vacation time. :) I love events where I don't need to take a day off, but nothing that I don't account for when planning a race schedule. Now the craziness schedule of the Runoffs? Nope.
  21. It would be interesting to know just how many...

    It would be interesting to know just how many people seriously want to attend the Runoffs. With it being such a drawn out event, usually large towing costs, and all of the other expenses including...

    I didn't even know there was still a distinction. I thought we now have categories that can run regional events, and only some of those can run in the majors. Easy enough to me.

    Jake G. has often mentioned one of the reasons why Club Racing has declined is due to how the family structure has changed over the years. A while back, in more families the father would simply state...

    Do you see me at NHMS? :) It's not just about cost, it's about perceived value.

    For example, I'd MUCH prefer to attend Summit Point's Labor Day Friday - Monday events even though it'll cost me...

    By all means I am not knocking the drivers in ITR or any other IT class, but sorry, it's not on the overall level that SM has. Just the way it is. I KNOW that I'd need to really, REALLY need to up my...
