I'm on the fence right now, but leaning toward going for Saturday and Sunday.

Which TT class does a '90 Spec Miata fit into? I'm thinking TTD. Is this correct?

A 1.6L Spec Miata would be in TTE with some points to spare....Even a 99 Spec Miata should be in TTE I believe (without restrictor) but I have not checked the points on that this year.

 

If you'll be at the event, be sure to look up/paddock with the Spec Miata guys, we have a ball and will give you any pointers we can.

That would be nice. The class is non-existent this year. I'd join in if more cars show.

Dudes......

 

I have a 1.8L Miata that I ran with SCCA in SSM. It looks to me as though I'd have to run that in the SM group in NASA, no? Any advice on this? Who is the local NASA SM/SSM guru?

 

Hoping to run Halloween at NJMP. thanks

I'm now 90% sure I'll be showing up for Saturday and Sunday in TTD again.

 

Does anyone know about the chicanes at turns 2 or 3? More turns might motivate me to think about some handling upgrades sooner than later.

Aj,

 

Randy ran TTD at the Glen but he has a '99 so I wasn't sure if '90 would be the same class.

SCCA SSM will run with SM, NASA tried to do a version of SSM a couple years ago but it just was not popular in the northeast. It was most popular in the Washington DC region but it is not anymore.

If it's TT competition you crave, cars in TTF-TTB can always bump up to a faster class. I've seen it many times when there is competition in a faster class. The bumping car in such an instance can run with less weight or bigger tires (among other allowances) to make up for the bumping to a faster class. For example, a TTC car that has 100lbs of ballast can shed the weight if they bump to TTB. There are TTB drivers register for Thunderbolt, so bumping might make the weekend TT competition more interesting. If the bumping car makes physical change from their TTC trim to TTB trim, the bumping need only to provide a revised classification form for the car. If we can get more TTC guys to run, that would be ideal.

I personally prefer no Chicane... You don't like leaving your foot planted for T3?

We already ran Chicane earlier this year. Lets run without it so we can go after some lap records...

I thought that the Fall event always runs without the chicane, and the spring events run with.

 

Lets pray for some warm weather unlike last year!

 

I would love to eliminate sunday practice for a 45 min race, like how it was at the Glen this year.

Shouldn't the lap records be tracked with and without chicane? I would imagine so. How hard can it be?

Some of us want a shot at the track record for the Thunderbolt configuration without the chicane

Exactly! My car has had bad luck at the Tbolt non chicane track 3 years in a row. I ran a faster lap time with the chicane then the current non chicane record... I would like to change that.

Each configuration is considered a different track for track record purposes.
