Did someone say crash? lol

With the number of people that did come by and chat/ask questions, I wouldn't be surprised to see the class continue to grow in NASA-SE.

After all that crashing on Saturday, you're basically getting your own race group starting next month for goodness sake. Better keep growing the class to make this move worth it. I expect to see 20 TRs out there soon. :wink:

But the run group isn't just TRs. I believe it's the TRs plus all the ST cars as well.

ST3 since it's mostly TRs and any other sports racers we get like the 818/Radical/Carma (Jim's final call on how that plays out).

But with the counts of those, it's still basically a TR race. #justsaying (plus edited previous comment)

Hopefully they get the Carma sorted out soon.
That thing could fly on the straights, but was a rolling chicane through the corners at CMP.

As for the wrecks, I know mine was caused by an ST3 car out of control. "Most" of the others were just a poor decision on the starting grid. Putting cars that run similar lap times, but in ENTIRELY opposite ways, was a recipe for disaster on Sat. The Sun race was long race and no double-yellow when they changed the starting groups around.

I actually like running with other cars on the track, as it adds to the fun. However, power cars that basically park in the corners and momentum cars than have to fly through the corners, aren't a great mix. SpecE into Thunder would make a lot more sense to me. They're about the same speed through the corners as the Thunder cars, so they'll get passed on the straights, but not held up in the corners. With the TR's in Thunder, it's just a back and forth that you can't get away from. Pass someone in the corner, they pass you back on the straight, then stuck trying to pass the same car at the next corner.

One other question, can a TR accommodate a tall driver? I'm 6'4" and long wasted which means headroom is usually more of an issue for me than leg room for me.



I have a twin? It seems I have written exactly those words before.
