    Already sent my letter against. Not interested in a transition year. ;)

    Weight break won’t work for many cars that can’t currently make min weight. And my ITA car is close to 5% over weight as is, so I won’t get any slower running Hoosiers (since I’m running them now).

    That's a pretty big concern given that every other class running a race weekend will be on at least r-conp if not full slicks.

    I don't know autocross, but I'm guessing the heat and beating tires take are different from road racing. So what works for autocross may not work for road race. If this street tire mandate becomes...

    IT is not dying off. If there is one thing the SCCA is good at, it's keeping classes around for ever! :)

    I still find the IT philosophy appealing. We (SCCA) need to do a better job of marketing...

    Two sets of rims with race tires mounted and a set of rain tires. (Three sets minimum) You'll burn any cost savings having a tire or two mounted at the track, so at least two additional rims are a...

    id be fine with one IT class if that what was already built. Cars would be classed with modifications to equalize the cars (best they can like current IT classes) and we would have all selected the...

    I've had pretty good luck attracting/helping/working with new people and bringing them to IT (and beyond) over my time club racing. I've run Chump and the early days of NASA. I've got a good handle...

    Too many variables to know if your CRX can be somewhat competitive: Engine build, tune, LSD, FD, Suspension, rims/tires, competition in your region (at that race), and the biggest piece - driver...

    The crossover argument doesn’t hold water. Cars from other series (Le/Chump) aren’t prepped to IT rules. So for them to run in an IT class, they require modification to even be legal. And many of...

    I hope you are setting them straight as to the 'crashfest' comments... There will be contact in racing when the battling involves many cars (often in the same class), large fields and tight...

    You have money for the 18s. Can't wait to get them! Thanks!

    Still haven't purchased a new car, so I'm out... In the market and didn't think it would take this long to find 'the one'. Have a great weekend!!
  15. F/S Team Dynamics 14x7 4x100 rims (off a Honda Civic)

    I've got 3 sets of Team Dynamics 14x7 4x100 rims. All have tires mounted, some are junk but some have life left. (Tires are Hankook c51s) These are race rims and are not perfect looking, but are...

    I really like the Hankooks and loved the 'old' contingency program! Will run them this year because I still have a large supply of them in the basement... When it comes time to buy new tires, who...

    Bought my race car(SSC Civic). Ran it for a few years in Regoinal SS classes (back when we had 10-15 SSC cars at a Regional...). Converted it to ITS when it moved to IT. Then got it moved to ITA. ...

    There are several ITA cars (not mine) that could lower the record this weekend! I'm still hoping for rain on lap 2 of the group 2 race! :D

    Entries are climbing! 15+ ITA and 16 SM as of this morning on the on-line entry. Add the 2 IT7s and Group 2 looks like fun!!! The other groups are filling in nicely as well! Get those entries...

    Purchased several items from them. Nothing but GREAT things to say about Kiwi and SPM! I've sent several folks there as well and they are all just as happy as I am!

    Is this going to be a track-only car? (Trailer to and from the track and never driven on the street?)
