    I'm on the ITAC still and in favor of this. 200TW and probably max 8" wheels, any diameter.


    I think it will initially be a huge boon to IT. The problem, as always, is competition and...

    Not necessarily. They might still exist. They just wouldn't go to the Runoffs.

    No, significantly more power than the stock power targets for ITR. Like Andy said it would be unraceble in ITR at its spec weight.

    There is talk of a class over ITR. Whether it happens or not I...

    I'd say absolutely not. The ARRC is actually pretty poorly attended in ITS and ITA. Big S and A fields at CMP, VIR, Roebling, Daytona, etc. though.

    Uh, my car doesn't have class leading torque, trust me.

    Not entirely. I think frontal area is a huge overlooked (maybe for good reason) advantage/disadvantage in IT. I see it in my car. CD sucks. But frontal area is small. It matters and probably...

    I think further fracturing of classes in the SCCA (sports car STL v. non-sports car STL or whatever) is a huge mistake.

    That said, I understand the issue and that I am part of the problem. I...
