Weight and Points

Recommended Posts

gjkasten

I understand how each class has a weight to HP ratio. And I understand that for every X pounds I take out I take Y points. Easy enough.

 

What doesn't make sense is why it seems weight reduction is "penalized" twice. It seems to my simple mind that simply using the HP/WT ratio would suffice.

 

Can someone smarter than me explain this?

 

Thanks!

simple for TTB-F

 

The horsepower/weight caps are to ensure all the cars competing in each class are in the same rough ballpark. That's all its really used for. Now that Corvettes are shoved into TT3, most cars that do well in class can't get real close to that cap with any sort of reasonable points setup.

 

Weight points are really more of a factor in the car's classing since as you say for every so many pounds that's another point.
