MKTurbo can have you a nice sounding exhaust that will meet every sound requirement at any track in CA. Won't be the lightest, but all the weight will be down low and help you hit that 2300lb weight requirement.

Really crossing my fingers for ST5 2018, but not going to hold my breath.

PTE, PTD, HC1 and HC2 all folded at ESC.
All of those classes can fit/roll into ST5.

ST4 is growing extremely quickly nation wide.
ST5 could do the same.

Combine that with a potential return to a single National Championship event and good things could happen, but thats none of my business.

I'm not holding my breath either. I moved up to PTC for ESC in an attempt to race someone because no one is showing up for PTD. I would rather the rules for ST5 be announced late this year then waiting out the entire 2018 season in hopes for the new class.

Fueling gremlins sorted.
Transmission gremlins sorted.

Dyno trip #3? Successful!

#Maxattack map is a little weaker than I hoped for, oh well.
However, my Supermiata S2 map kicks *** and I have 130 and 128 whp flat power curve maps for NASA E* reclasses.

Since PTD is the easier double dip for a Supermiata S2, and there are only about 3 PTE cars out west here, and only one is actually developed/fast, I am toying with this PTD idea as a way to go fast for cheap since I already have Hooseirs to burn.

PTE is 16.50:1 P:W
PTD is 14.25:1 P:W

All else being equal, a D car needs to make 25whp more than an E car. Since I don't make 169whp, I can reclass and drop a bunch of weight to lower my P:W ratio.

I have already gotten an approved reclass of [email protected] from Greg.This is 110lbs lighter than a points-only E car.

I only made 143 NASApowers today, so my ideal reclass would be something like [email protected], to leave a couple horsepressures for safety margin. My car is already at 2250 without ballast, so thats awesome.

Then the points spend looks like:
205s -7
Hoosier R7 +10
Springs +3
Shocks +2
LSD +3
Airdam +3
Spoiler or Wing +4
18/19

Emilio also set up a 140whp Supermiata S2 map and 130 and 128whp PTE maps today for me. All the options.

Supermiata season finale was awesome. I really like racing on the Roval at Autoclub, and to do it under sunset conditions was a special treat. My DiY plastic windshield made it even more fun.

Incar video is chopped, but i want to add race notes before uploading. That won't happen until next week, as we are about to roll out for Super Lap Battle.

Supermiata S1 aero is on for Chuckwallastravaganza this weekend. This is Sean's wing(GoodwinRacing) that we borrowed for Taxi/SuperLapBattle.

Here are a few photos of how I did my splitter and support cables(very similar to how John does them on Bullet):
