Cool I'm looking forward to you bitches schooling me on that track. Hopefully I can return the favor at one of "my" tracks.

i don't know about that. i only run 9 psi (201whp) or 10psi on occasion (215whp) in my turbo. even if i go up to 11-12 psi that's only 230-240whp. but if you wanna take the easy route! lol... i think you would be killing mod at tws with a lap time like that. you gotta remember, this isn't cali., we're just starting the arms race here. those with the power already, are catching up on seat time.

truth. I feel a lot slower today with a proper car than when I was "on my game" at 94whp. By the end of the season I think we'll have a damn strong crew.

Seeing you walk away from 0086 at MSR-h lead me to think you were making more power. it may have been the weight difference.

I do have a set of NT01's on 15x9's that would bump me up to unlimited, but the NT01s are about half gone and i dont think that they'd last the season. My tire budget this year is pretty thin.

I really only have alot of seat time at TWS. I have driven MSRC a few years ago, when i was a noob.

What are your thoughts of entering a mod car in both mod and unlimited?

Cool.

My brother and I were actually up there Monday for the Ride Smart day. I forget how much I friggin' love that track on a bike. I decided it would be fun in a turbo Miata too.

that's easy, i'll buy your half worn nt-01's leaving you with only a little bit to cover on buying some new ones that will last the season. win-win!

on 2 classes, normally i would say why not? if changing parts gets your points down or up a class why couldn't you do that? but there's a few issues that come up. and atleast for this first season i think we wanna stick to one class per entry. now if you wanna change from track to track be my guest. or if your sharing a car and swap tires/parts for diff. class and diff. driver's that's fine. but per driver, what class you sign up for in the morning will be your class for the day.
