event is coming up. This is the Toy Run. please bring a unopened $20 toy.






This event means a lot to me. as a child i had a Christmas that had donated toys. without it i wouldn't of had a Christmas. It feels amazing to drop off toys now that i can give back.


I have a discount code for HPDE People. Drop a comment below and i'll PM it to you.

I may run some TTE next year in NASA SE...

NASA needs to fix the dyno bull$hit before anyone can take them seriously.

I love the TT/PT rules, but the numbers here in the SE are pretty sad.

I live less than an hour from CMP so I like to use those events for testing, even if I don't run any other NASA events.

Yeah! Come run TTE!

PT in the SE is pretty stale, except maybe PTD. TT seemed pretty decent last year, TTE looked to always make at least 5.

PTE could use some help. i think most of that car count is stolen by spec miata or spec e30. TTE and TTD have strong turnouts.

Or just say screw it and run TTU with me.


Rocking ham will be interesting

Braking zones will be important.

T1 at Daytona really seemed to separate the men from the boys during the races. I watched some racing from the elevated platform inside of T1.

that's the best place to watch if you can't get into the stands.

T1 was a real PITA i would enter it thinking "i'm over slowing" then fly off track.

This. And a good purge of some of the people in the national office would help as well haha.

that isn't going to happen...

What's the issue with the dyno? i remember the Dyno at the 2014 nationals was way off. it was giving some AI cars an extra 100hp. the corporate NASA guys kept changing how that was going to be handled. that was annoying.

I haven't heard any bad things after that when nasa SE was running it.

A little Googling for NASA and MCE dyno will yield tons of results.

I call it the random number generator. I've gotten DQ'd by it once, read like almost 10% higher for some cars than the local dyno used for classing.
