My opinion, as someone who has a RP Mustang, is that the smaller tire rule just creates a situation where RP cars have to get their asses kicked at power tracks ( like VIR and RA) while waiting for...

Actually, less grip would favor the better shocks. They would help with initial grip and help maintain the grip all race long.

McDermid was better in testing. He got going today but still isn't at full speed. I imagine he will do well in the race. He would still be my pick.

SMG comment was tongue in cheek. The SMG should...

Hi Pam. From what I am told (and I have a high degree of confidence in this person) the SMGs were trying to get dropped into T3.

When they ended up in AS, I would assume that it was a...

Jim, I was having a discussion with another racer who was on the ADHOC for Touring. I've been told that the SMG group was trying to get into T3, but suddenly got dumped into AS.

Hi, Richard. The time laid down by Eagleton was presumed to be a legal AS/SMG. I do expect the SMGs to get their butts kicked at VIR.

Scott, it isn't that the SMG is so fast at Sonoma, it is that the AS cars are so SLOW. The T3 winner would have beat the AS class at the Runoffs. Look at the results from the 14 Laguna race. The SMGs...

It was only a cluster because people jumped to conclusions as to the capabilities of these cars. The SMG is a worse choice than the 05-10 4.6L RP already listed.

SMG classification change

So it looks like the ASedan adhoc added the SMG to the restricted prep section, requiring a factory workshop manual be provided by competitors. This should allay fears that there is no way to tech an...
