Default NASA Classing Crew: Please state your lb/whp ratios

I've managed to get myself in hot water, again, over classing. I talked to some guys in NASARM and apparently they're getting 25whp+ more than me, in TTB.


BTW, I found this gem from the S2k hardtop thread:

BTW, I found this gem from the S2k hardtop thread:
we can do that, but fyi, YOU are NOT classed by lb/whp. you are base classed by your forced induction, competition weight, and whp. the difference is, you cannot make over your claimed whp, or be under your claimed comp. weight. it doesn't matter if you add weight, you still can't be over the whp greg classed you at. otherwise you have to get a new base class from him. i'm glad i don't give a **** about TT this year. Thats why i'm running TTA even though i'm still in TTB by points. I don't wanna hear **** from anyone, all i care about is going faster and having fun with TxMC crew.

BTW, that's some serious bullshit in that post. he tried ban/revoke membership/kill my dog, scare me too, and basically called me a liar. I told him exactly how i felt, that i could prove everything i said, and basically to be a tyrant if he had to. oh also, he trolled some of these forums to come up with the **** he was telling me, just so you know in case you get your card pulled.

That guy is a world class a hole. He had the gaul to post that no one had sent him an email about the s2k hardtop so he was inclined to ignore a 30 page thread in his own forum. I basically called him out on that piece and him threatening spoolin2bars with his NASA membership. He promptly deleted my post. WTF is this guy thinking, this is a club.

I thought SCCA was a club and NASA was a business? Meh. It would not bother me if we never ran a NASA event again.

I thought the hp/weight ratios were not applied until you got to TTS/TTU? Thats basically anything goes as long as you don't exceed the power:weight ratios right?

I don't even try to understand the logic any more - there is none.... Anycase, I can't go over 237rwhp or min comp of 2420
Running the numbers for TTU, we can't go over 450rwhp with a min comp between 2451-2550 - that's right at 5.51:1 pw/wt (5.50:1 class max) with points for weight reduction (-.35) and 275 hoosiers (+.4)

TTA-TTF still must comply with the mimimum "adjusted" pw/wt crap. It's mostly for 4Dr/FWD/AWD/dogcut etc. Really the only thing that I see that would apply to miata's is the tires (275 and up and/or non-DOT slicks)..

My TTA sheet declares 220/2440 which puts me at 11.1 (pathetic for TTA, which allows up to 8.7). Hell, I'm a dog in TTB which allows 10.25 (the miata reclass really shines here).

Last event, running my 275's made me illegal for TTA (hence running DE3 with them). Plus that setup adds 40 lbs over my "legal" setup. The grip is awesome, but I can sure feel the 40 lb anchor..

Gene, @ 237/2420 (10.21) are you TTA?

You mean there are TTB miata's in RM with 25hp more? At the same wt?

I saw that Austin's (acab) posts got yanked. Pretty pissy. I believe his postings were fine. Nice way to treat a potential driver moving up toward TT (he was just advanced to DE3 at TWS). But then, he was driving an s2k with an illegal hard top, so yeah, delete his posts and threaten bannage

Between the miata guys and the s2k guys is looks like you might have enough people to start your own series and not have to deal with this nasa guy.

Maybe I'm overestimating how big the TX track crew is. It's gotta be bigger than then ABQ crew?

TTB** Base, but with mods and 225 hoosiers, I'm at the top of TTA, 275s would put me over and would have go reclass into TTS/TTU

$300 per weekend, 7x, and we get treated like this, lol. If they don't give me a few whp or class-down the E46 M3 they're going to be short my money next year. That E46 may be a better driver than me, but not 10-seconds of better driving. That car put bus-lengths on my at TWS and it wasn't exit speed. Greg telling me "**** you" will not be well received.

Hustler,

I know hoew you feel. I was in my na 2001 miata in TTE with an RX7 that was running a few seconds under Sm times. How that can work out to be lagit I dont know, but thats how it was.

Have a great day,
Jared

LIKE HIS FATHER had done with him, Greenbaum wasted little time handing over the reins of the family businesses tohis children. Beginning in the early 1990s, Greenbaum tapped his son Greg to lead the restaurant business, his son Jeffrey to lead the real estate business, and his son-in-law, Lock Reddic, to lead the liquor store business.

“I’m very fortunate to have three children in three different businesses,” Greenbaum says. “They don’t work for each other and they don’t work with each other. It’s really good because they’re all presidents and they’re all good at their individual businesses.”

Which is why, in 1996, Greg Greenbaum decided it was time to fire his father.


That about covers it.

I am so fuming mad right now that I can't even drink my beer. Here is what Greg posted.

Wow, this thread is full of more BS than a stockyard. However, it definitely has potential to make it to at least 20 pages.

Jacob, you forgot about the 9 points in weight reduction (140 lbs difference base weight) from the start of this thread! So, make that 39 potential points difference between the Boss and GT (at least according to your calculations). The difference in points between a TTB and TTA* base classing is 27 points, but with the difference in base tire size of 30mm, there is anywhere between 5 and 9 points in tire size (credit) difference. So, now, the Boss has 39 points more in potential mods, but is base classed the equivalent of 16 to 22 points higher than the GT once you take tire size points into account. So, how is that "far to great a value". It looks like 50 cents on the dollar to me.

The above not withstanding, the raw factory rated hp/base weight of the Boss is very close to that of the C5 Z06 and C6, both in TTA*. If this premier Ford built in 2011 for the track can't match the handling of the 2001 Corvette on leaf springs, and can't match the speed with the extra power it has (despite the higher weight) then don't buy a Ford. Or, better yet, take this power beast and mod it into the class that most of these cars belong in anyway--TTS.

Now, lets go back to the old thread about the classing of the late model GT's where there was crying about us making the base weight so high, which allowed the TTB base classing to begin with (instead of TTB* or TTB**). Bueller, Bueller, Bueller.......

And, some of the stuff here only suggests to me that maybe we should reconsider the base class of the '11 GT into TTB* anyway--So, for those driving that car, feel free to blast away at those here arguing that the cars should be classed closer together. I won't bother posting the comparisons here, but I'm sure that someone will find them and point out that the Wt/Hp ratio of their TTB base classed cars is much higher than than of the '11 GT.

So, if one of my PT Directors is doing his job by following the TT and PT threads, and pointing out the "other side" of the coin, then he is trolling? No, I call it doing his job. I can't spend all day watching the often comical threads that come up here. So, the regional PT and TT Directors are specifically requested to keep an eye on the Forums, and post when necessary to point out what has been missed.

Question: Which is a "higher" base class, TTB** or TTA? Answer: It depends on the size tires the car has in competition trim.

Now, I haven't seen an answer to Mark's question yet. Who ON THIS THREAD owns a Boss. Now, who is planning on buying a car to run in TT that they don't think is classed fairly?


Here was my reply that promptly got the thread locked due to the fact that I posted the facts and he is never wrong.

Greg G. wrote Wow, this thread is full of more BS than a stockyard. However, it definitely has potential to make it to at least 20 pages.

Thanks for taking this NASA customer's thread seriously.

Jacob, you forgot about the 9 points in weight reduction (140 lbs difference base weight) from the start of this thread! So, make that 39 potential points difference between the Boss and GT (at least according to your calculations).

Greg, the Boss is 27lbs heavier than a base Mustang GT.

So, how is that "far to great a value". It looks like 50 cents on the dollar to me.

I counted the tires in my points of the first post.

The above not withstanding, the raw factory rated hp/base weight of the Boss is very close to that of the C5 Z06 and C6, both in TTA*.

Thats incorrect Greg. Here are the crank hp/weight stats.

C5 Z06 at 425/3115 or 7.3
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Corvette_C5_Z06

C6 Z06 at 505/3180 or 6.3
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Corvette_C6#Z06

Mustang GT at 412/3605 or 8.7
http://media.ford.com/images/10031/2011 ... _Specs.pdf

Boss 302 at 444/3632 or 8.2
http://media.ford.com/images/10031/2012 ... _Specs.pdf



If this premier Ford built in 2011 for the track can't match the handling of the 2001 Corvette on leaf springs, and can't match the speed with the extra power it has (despite the higher weight) then don't buy a Ford. Or, better yet, take this power beast and mod it into the class that most of these cars belong in anyway--TTS.

Where it belongs?

Now, lets go back to the old thread about the classing of the late model GT's where there was crying about us making the base weight so high, which allowed the TTB base classing to begin with (instead of TTB* or TTB**). Bueller, Bueller, Bueller.......

I won't bother posting the comparisons here, but I'm sure that someone will find them and point out that the Wt/Hp ratio of their TTB base classed cars is much higher than than of the '11 GT.

Greg, then why is there even a 10.25 cap in TTB? Why are you threatening to raise another car's class, while telling those drivers to come after me in this post?

So, if one of my PT Directors is doing his job by following the TT and PT threads, and pointing out the "other side" of the coin, then he is trolling? No, I call it doing his job. I can't spend all day watching the often comical threads that come up here. So, the regional PT and TT Directors are specifically requested to keep an eye on the Forums, and post when necessary to point out what has been missed.

Greg, you and some of your directors are so out in left field on how you treat us drivers. Refering to many serious points as comical is down right insulting.

Question: Which is a "higher" base class, TTB** or TTA? Answer: It depends on the size tires the car has in competition trim.

Now, I haven't seen an answer to Mark's question yet. Who ON THIS THREAD owns a Boss. Now, who is planning on buying a car to run in TT that they don't think is classed fairly?

What would you suggest I buy Greg?

This is my favorite.

He classed the E46 at 3250lb/317whp on 285 R6 for TTB or 10.25.
I was given 2440lb/215 on 225 NT-01s or 11.3.

I can't get close to the E46 ratio until that ****** classes me in TTS, and I'm running 60mm less tire. I don't ******* get it, why do I have to run less lb/hp and run less tire than the competition? How does that possibly make sense?

I'm also still really pissed about him not giving me a TTA classification. I'm going to Hallett, there are 2 cars in TTB, and now I can't run TTA because he refuses to answer my email. I think it's time for a formalized complaint to the national director.

I could see the tire issue due to your lower weight, but the hp/wt ratio is just stupid.
