Recommended Posts

I just picked up a former Battery Tender car and am trying to figure out which class to run in. Anyone else in this situation? If so which class are you planning to run?

I'd say step 1 is get the dyno sheet done. Then you can always run ST4 if suitable or if there's better turnout or if the schedule allows you to double up.

What year is the car?

Yeah that info would help, wouldn't it. 2016 Global MX-5 Cup. I've pretty much come to the conclusion that PT is the best place for it, as it should compete as is. I have zero interest in modifying this car.

I'd be interested to hear the peak power if/when you dyno it. I bet there a hoot to drive.
