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.


Which would be a little late - I think ST-4 is a brilliant formula - but its going to take an extra season to get its legs underneath it because of how late the formula came out.

The biggest question I think everyone is waiting for is Aero - Yay or Nay for ST5/6?

I'm a non-aero user and have swayed in my aero acceptance for the lower classes.

I'm for the aero as long as there's a heavy modifier applied. It would be a shame to have cars already competing in lower classes, with no obvious outliers, be forces to have a complete redo of their car. This is especially true for cars running under reclasses with aero as they essentially already have a heavy modifier applied.

Checking in for updates! It would be fantastic to get the rules next month so we all have ~6 months to at least plan all our builds for ST5/6.

Questions I'm curious on:
- Will there be chassis modifiers?
- What will the base adjusted wt/HP ratios for 5 and 6?
- What will the tire sizes be for 5 and 6? Will it be the same for both?
- Will the competition weights and modifiers in 1-4 carry over to 5/6?
- Will there be modifiers for different tire type compounds outside of DOT and non-DOT?
- Will aero be allowed, if so will there be modifiers for aero?
- Will there be modifiers for everything currently listed in PT rules sections 5.3D/E/F?


I'm sure there's others that are wondering this as well :D

Hopefully (for me) the ratio's will follow the current scale. If that were the case they would be 14.00 and 16.00 respectively.

Well if I had to guess, 5 will be 14.5:1 avg since C is 14.5:1 avg this year. This makes me wonder if 6 will be 17:1 avg. If those numbers happen to be the ratios, 5/6 will be a tad faster next year..... depending on all the other modifiers of course.
