|i was hoping this thread was involving information on proper procedure for track days...not how to modify your vehicle....ive been doing scca autox for almost 4 years now and finally built a race only scirocco specifically for track racing. we need a forum with information on class specifications for racing, ie displacement and modifying rules and regulations, saftey specs and neccesary equipment needed to run the class as well as weight and power....i think i'm going to get on that...anyone think its a good idea?|
The main purpose of this thread was to simply help out those individuals who are just getting started with track events/HPDE's. I sort of used myself when i put this together. And tried to cover questions/issues that seemed relevant to most noobs. I didnt think covering detailed topics with information on the different class specifications for racing was/is pertinent for a noob.
What youre referring to is a great topic, and youre more than welcome to try to put something together. However, its a _very_ difficult topic to address. You have to deal with providing detailed and accurate info on all the different sanctioning bodies, as well as all the different classes within each of those sanctioning bodies. Beyond all that, youre also going to have to be able to deal with all the varying interests of each and every car.
The one and only way that i have seen people approach this, is by having one thread, dedicated to one specific car, that is competing in one specific class, for one specific sanctioning body. For example, i have seen knowledgeable Evo guys, who compete in Autocross, put together a thread specifically for guys with Evo's who are looking to compete with SCCA in the SM class. Then, several well known Regional and National champions/members discuss all the rules, and all the various different issues and what not. How things work for them, vs. BMW guys, or Honda guys who are competing in that specific class is not the same.
Good luck with your venture.
