Big News - 944 Spec gets it's own run group! 7 years, 5 months ago #16387

Guys

Will announced today that we will have our own run group!

SE30 and Spec Boxster will not have a National class this year, and so we will have the run group alone.

SE30 participation was killed in large part by a HP controversy.

Thats great news for us!!!

I still cant understand why E30 had such low participation numbers. We must have 50 cars in California.

IMO Nasa shot themselves in the foot by trying to install a new HP cap rule for E30 right before Nats.

This is an example of why rules need to be done in a measured way and not irrationally.

E30 does need a HP cap but at the end of the year and with some level of intelligence. The new rule has a sliding scale of HP to weight where each HP is worth 20 lbs. Can you imagine the problem when you dyno with 1 hp too much. (because dynos all read the same) You are now 20 lbs under weight.

See you all there!

There are certainly lots of lessons in this.

SE30 had a placeholder in their rules for a year that a dyno rule was coming. This year, 170 RWHP cars showed up, which kept a lot of guys home for Nationals. A well intentioned, but late rule change finished the rest for this year.

I personally favor simple, specific, and equal rules to sliding scales and adjustments. I do understanding their intentions in balancing a fairly wide range HP's, but it adds complexity. Hopefully they can sort out the best option for those guys moving forward, and make next year better.

This makes me wish even more that I was able to attend this year. Unfortunately the Army had other plans. Next year, however, its on and hopefully I can bring a few of the SE guys along with me.
