  1. 2018 Ice Racing Registration Links

    Just a reminder that events 4 and 5 are up for registration!
  2. #17 RaceTrix was/is a PTF car as built. No changes required. This decision should work out nicely for others who want to join in.
  3. 2018 Ice Racing Registration Links

    Event 2 and 3 are up on MSR for your registration pleasure.
  4. Lighter...not always. In my case, carbon bits were/are the only answer. Cheapest way to get your lap times down is seat time! Your comment adds to the suggestion of why not a PTF class rather than PTE? Get your cage, seat and switch and come racing! Look forward to seeing you out there.
  5. I take my previous post back. My car is posted somewhere on here in another thread. I think in the spotlight forum. Perhaps you might understand why it's not easy for it to fit in. Ultimately, the result of the vote will make me decide to continue in PTE or not, and I know I'm not the only one.
  6. The question and answer to it is irrelevant for the purposes of this thread. But yes, I will be racing next year! **EDIT** It's irrelevant because it doesn't (or shouldn't) matter what car we each have but that we all are racing together...
  7. Exactly my point. I can’t, and others might not either. I can’t buy parts that doesn’t exist. It has to be fair competition, available for everyone. By the way, how far along is your build Derrick?
  8. If there was a smaller factory brake package available for my car that would allow me to run pizza cutters, then that might be an option. However that is counter productive in itself. This ruleset ya’ll want should be all inclusive and not require folks to go out and buy specialized parts right? Asking me to replace my RPF1’s with another set of rims at $1,200USD just to “fit in” is what you all have stated as improper.
  9. Mainly because the leading brand of discussion doesn’t offer appropriate sizes. I also like to tinker with various parts to find the best match, working within the given points allotment ads to the challenge. I still don’t get the “costs under control” comment. Work within your budget. There’s always going to be a better driver, faster car, someone with deeper pockets or has the lastest shiny part. It’s inevitable, however the points ruleset is for everyone. They have to work within the points to have that fancy, expensive, shiny part. This shiny part might just be Nitto NT-01’s.
  10. If PTE is too heavy on the pocket book, why not make it an open PTF class then? As a PTE racer, interested in fair racing with you folks, I can't be in agreement with your classing rules. Specifically regarding if the club class demands a spec tire . This just isn't feasible for me and brings back the point of being all inclusive. The PT rules allow for any car to compete in any class. The underlying fact here is that this is all simple math performance point calculations. Very simple, as in the spreadsheet already has the math done for you. Make it a 10pt (or whatever is agreed upon)threshold into PTE. If PTF car, that car gets all of the PTF points, up to "10" on the PTE side. If they are a PTD car, they have to add weight, change tire size, put the manifold back on in place of the header...whatever to bring the points down to mid PTE points. This covers weight, tires, "his cam is bigger than my cam", bla bla bla. Its black and white, and is posted publicly. Is there a runaway racer? Check the declaration, protest and ask for a tear-down. <-- Yes, Its in the rules! Whatever the course of action you folks take, this should be nailed down soon. Folks are waiting to see where this is headed. Cars need to be built and/or modified.
