    Some information I've been able to figure out since this thread started:

    1. Not all 200TW tires are made equaly fast or resiliant. There is a huge disparity between tires, we'll end up on one or...

    I like both of these points. It's about branding and about the notion of "fun" and the whole team aspect of cheap racing means a lot. I do love the low effort required of participation, but I think...

    Yeah that's it exactly. The notion that "I can be guaranteed a level playing field", combined with the notion that the rules are super easy for a lay-person to understand and build to and a simple...

    Agree... that is part of the story isn't it. But it that it? You feel that it's a one dimensional issue? It's not about the run-what-you-brung, easy to understand rules? The bracket-racing? I agree...

    24 Hours of Lemons
    NASA PT, SE30, 944 and SM Classes

    Why are they so successful despite their lack of organization and structure. What...

    This was the best change ever made for the E30. I am competitive, I could use another 50lbs off, but then, I'm not unhappy. The E36 and E46 chassis are just much more superior to think about...

    This is what I meant by mandating 100TW + tires. There are viable and inexpensive solutions for us that are not 200TW. In fact the Maxxis 100TW option as far as we have been able to tell is a really...

    Understandable. I really think there is room in IT for a Spec tire, Hoosier is just one of many. Mandating a 100-130 TW tire, I think if I am correct that's where the Maxxis and R888r play. IMO...

    Other places to race my ITS E30?

    What is the other competitive place to race my E30 ITS 325 in the SCCA? I have NASA, but I did that, and I'm not excited about NASA. I really want to get a National License so I can get my...

    While I can appreciate the desire to both distinguish IT from the rest of the SCCA's classes as a "beginner" and a "regional only/low budget" class I don't think racing on non-race compound tires...

    ITA MIata

    I am preparing my car for ITA/PTE and am curious if you know of any special safety regulations regarding the parcel shelf and holes into the trunk left by removing the oem seat belt inertia reels.

    The E36 is so damn simple, light and reliable, I'd still go for an early E36 325 even after all this time.

    I have been recommended to put in 4:88's in my Miata for ITA. Sounds insane, but I used to run ITA, so I'd definitely try it out. :cool:
