And exactly how much ballast is legal to add in the ST and PT series? :roll:


Its +5 for every 15 pounds past the listed max.

Why the eye roll? We are very serious here. This makes a huge difference to the cars.

A 750 lb add - that would require more than just adding ballast. I see adding ballast, new spring rates, possibly new sway bars, larger brakes, cooling - and for what? A car that sucks to drive? Might as well race in a different series at that point.

We need to see these rules. Is 11/29 real or more like one of Elon Musk's Tesla releases?

I think the roll eyes is because 750lbs was a typo since you can't have more then 250lbs ballast anyway.

Either way, we are all pretty serious and anxiously waiting on these rules so we can start out builds/tear downs for the winter.

750 lbs was a joke from the start.
Until the rules are approved, there is no way to calculate the number.

While this is ST5, it is more complicated than the higher classes, and will
actually be on a different set of rules to prevent confusion between the classes.
They are written to prep for ST6 in the future.

November 29th is a real target date that we expect to meet.

Thx Greg. Anxious to see what the new rule set is.

I would think if the ratio goes any more than 15:1 there'll be a slot of cars that won't be competitive in either TT5 or TT4.
