im totally and early person (i get up at 4), but i work saturdays. i do most all my track days on sundays.

going off memory now from the TT thread in the race section, but the 2 of you that got DQed here in phx were not the first by far. i want to say there were 6 or 8 that got DQed in the northwest region earlier in the year before they dragged that POS to phx.

but yea, i would agree, it looks like they were picking on the fast guy. was the other guy that got dqed a quick driver too?

look at all these warm and fuzzys now, sharing props n **** lol

Oh yeah definitely, this thing has been ******* people over for awhile. I started digging and even found one guy that was at a three day event, and he put his car on their dyno each day for 60 bucks a pop for private testing, and each day got a different number, even though at his local dynojet he always runs almost the same number every time even during different days and weather.


That other guy that posted in that thread (green miata) did not get DQ'd because of how they changed the rules even though he went over in power just like me. He was dyno'd way after me because he's usually like 1 to 2 seconds off my pace.

The other Miata (purple one) that got DQ'd with me at about the same time was in TTD and he was in the lead for his class as well, I think he was really close to getting a track record as well.

they should be required to refund you track fees from a dyno DQ if they cant prove willful shenanigans, especially when its a mobile dyno different from the nasa sanctioned local dyno. i would be so pissed if i paid for a whole weekend and had to sit it out like that after playing by the book to the best of my abilities.

Oh for sure, I fully agree. If I were cheating on purpose I would definitely not get caught by a dyno lmao. I'm smarter than that. I was given the "opportunity" to keep competing if I could ballast up but I don't have a system in place to add over 100lbs of ballast safely and legally, I built the car to be legal as it stands lol.

Oh well, that's behind me. Just focusing on moving forward now and going faster than I have before. You will probably see me out at a pro auto event soon enough.

Got DQ'd for paperwork technicality at NASA last Saturday, that was frustrating. They told me at the end of the day so it was too late to get it corrected...

I'm registered for the ProAuto event at WHP East on the 20th.

The morning formats are not bad. It's done by 10AM so it's usually okay temperature wise. I'm finishing installing an oil cooler, so good to go.

I just need to get some facetime with ProAuto so that I can try to be eligible to run in race group PS4 and in HL4 at the Inde event in september. Decided to finish the cage on the car.


Edit: Oh also I figured out a cost effective way for my dad and I to run as a team and get plenty of seat time. Just register as a team for PS4 with Hot Laps sessions added on. My dad will drive in race warm up, race open qualifying and then both of the hot lap sessions so he gets four sessions, then I'll do the qualifying race and the feature race, which is plenty of seat time for me.

I have no idea. I asked like two weeks ago and nobody was signed up yet, but they said a lot of the race group guys sign up last minute or at the event, and would be surprised if there weren't at least 4 other people.

Guess we'll find out lol.

Concealer visits the east coast, and the damn southwest, but won't come up to see us in the NW? Sad day.

You've never met Concealer404? You must not be very important. Concealer came and picked me up. I'm impotent.
