    Yes. Because it's an enduro.

    The tire rule experiment is allowing a very small number of teams to run in an "X" class one "Enduro" class lower than where their car would otherwise end up, if it's on gen-u-ine street tires. The RX8 I'm in would be an E2 car (by virtue of it's NASA PT category classing), but is running E3 on non-R rubber.

    How many teams have rigs. Of those that do how often do you use them.?
    Does having a overhead rig bump you up one class?

    What is the Tread wear rating for the class drop?
    Thanks, MM

    The experimental tire test is minimum treadwear of 200.

    With Pablo, Cameron and the guys always used air guns and nitrogen. Give the tire changes knee pads and if they are competent wrench-turners, they can get it done in about the same time it takes to plug in a new biological control module.

    We ran Hoosiers at the last 4 enduros we did (late '90's), we changed the least abused tire at 8 hours and the most abused at 4 hours. Always scheduled so we always changed no more than 2, and always on the the same side of the car. Used nitrogen and air guns. Wanna borrow my nitrogen bottle?

    No idea, lots of sm cars and I don't see anything in the sm regs that allow that type of modification to them.

    We are using ATL dump cans

    In previous years about half of the teams have had overhead fuel rigs.

    Default The Devil in the Dark Results

    Congratulations to Harold Petit, Randy Mueller, Scott Baker and Joshua Smith from the #28 Johnstone Supply Team BMW M3 team for their third consecutive victory in The Devil in the Dark 2013. This year the team covered 439 laps exceeding last year's winning total of by six laps. There was a lot of excitement in this year's race exemplified by a few podium position changes in the last hour. The 1-2 finishers in E3 were on the same lap and the 1-2 in E2 were separated by a single lap and all of the E4 cars completed the same number of laps.

    And congratulations to the other 41 teams that hit the track in the fourth edition of The Devil. Several teams struggled with mechanical gremlins, a few did not finish but almost 30 teams were still running when the checker flag flew at the end of the 12 hours.
