Thanks for the suggestions. Any ideas on what ps pump pulley to get, ie how much smaller? I see all kinds of stuff out there but don't know what's right for road racing. Some can be pretty pricey.

I have a new question about my car. I lost the power steering this weekend at Grattan and curious what others are doing for replacements. Of course as an LP car, I can't go too extreme. OE type...

I too feel like that is an old list. Yoko hasn't made that tire in a long time, Toyo 888 should be the 888R, and Hankook hasn't sold those tire in awhile.
In my experience, the BFG is harder to...

Thanks for the link. Is it common for these to be released in other channels but not posted to SCCA website?

Where is that listed in Fast track? I'm not finding it.
Without knowing the facts of why it was proposed, it's hard to comment on. It seems to me that the newer cars who need bigger brakes are...

True but it happens all the time in SCCA races when they combine multiple classes. When I went to Barber for their Labor Day race, they grouped IT in with SRF. I didn't go back mainly because of...

I get the current mixed groupings of prod, GT, and touring but I wonder if they've looked into grouping by speed. Obviously GT1 is an extreme case but I'd think grouping by speed might be better. ...

Spring races

Anybody else coming out to Gateway or June Sprints? We could use a couple more in our class at both. GMP is on, and I presume June Sprints are too.
My car is ready and making it's first outing...

Is there a consensus on what brake pads to run? I have been running Hawk DTC60 in the front and 10's on the rear when it was in T4. I've been toying with going to G Loc.

Have you heard if SCCA will use it? It seems like something they added for drifting or GRX. Looks tight for road racing.
