Do you have a drop dead date in mind?

For those who have been holding off on making changes to their cars (me for example), if the rules come out after say August of this year, I'd say it will be tough to really get things taken care of by spring 2018. Heck, I would like to have known last August for the 2018 season. Depending on how it works out, some things are harder to plan for such as budgets...


+1 !!!!

I'm trying to figure out what I'll need to do to my car to be competitive in TT6(or TT5) for next year and then see what's left in the budget for entry fees and such. If the rules of 5 and 6 are very similar to 4..such as adding in some tire size modifiers, weight modifiers, and oem aero vs aero breaks, then I could convert my car from E to 6 fairly easily.....assuming 6 will be somewhere around 16-17:1 weight to avg rwhp ratio.

So the sooner I know the rule set, the better I can prepare and ultimately save $$ in the long-run.[/quote]

In for a guess on this as well. FYI- Looking forward to the switch.

Another +1 on having the rules out preferably sooner than later. Just lost my PTE motor at our last event and not having rules makes it hard to plan my next build.

Another +1 for getting these rules out as soon as y'all can. I've got an NC mx5 I'm trying to setup for tt5 and I'm scared to do anything with aero until the rules are released.

I like the ST4 rules. Just copying those rules with less power would be awesome for tt5/st5 and tt6/st6.

Since I am in for responses, I would just like to throw in that I am a fan of no aero, or a good size penalty for it that would make aero mods not worth it. Imo, it makes doing TT less attractive if you need a racecar, versus a a street car. If you have full on race car builds in the lower levels, it may be discouraging to people thinking of moving up. It would also be nice to have a place to go that does not require tons of mods to be competitive. That said, if it soes not work out that way, I won't be salty, I guess I will just be adding aero.

.... and how does one prep for rules that don't exist?..

Realizing this, I would say June 1 is too late depending on the changes. My prediction is a bunch of people saying "F" this, and taking next year off too, or changing hobbies to something cheap like fishing...

Tick tock, tick tock.....

The final ST4 rules didn't come out until around the October/November timeframe in 2016 for the 2017 season. I would wager you are looking at about the same timeframe for the upcoming ST classes.
