    Josh,

    Since you are a class winner you get the season subscription for $100 when you register for the 3-19 event and $90 when you register for the 4-23 event.

    best news I've heard in weeks! I'm already registered for the 3-19 event so I guess I'll get it next time.

    admin, might want to change car #103 (John Lattanzio) into X1 vice X2 where he signed up.

    I don't think a Corvette falls into the X2 displacement range, unless he did a swap for a V6, lol....

    I don't think he's coming anyways. He hasn't paid yet and is not returning e-mails. So I've removed him from the registration list.

    nah, just don't want to make him and his 8 cylinders feel bad

    besides, I'm considering up-classing to X1 this season, especially if I keep seeing S2000's with R-comps signing up for X2...which will most certainly be faster than me on my street tires. If I had run X1 last year I would have had 2 or 3 event wins (I had exactly zero in X2, lol)

    It's not up to me, but I don't think up-classing should be allowed in the X classes. No one can prove to me that one particular X class is faster than another. Therefore up-classing may just be a means of getting away from your proper competition.

    Hi all,

    I have a problem selecting a number for the car. The dropdownlist has two available values:
    blank and "...". Either selection gives error "You must choose a number for Vehicle Information"

    Click image for larger version.

    X classes are so broad as it is I don't know if that matters much. You've got bone stock/tuner/mod all lumped in together. I actually judge my times, or consider my primary competition, the comparable BMW stock class, not the X class where I get spanked on a regular basis. Not complaining though, it is a BMW club after all.

    some could argue that pretty much any car on street tires is not "proper competition" for any car on r-comps.

    when you consider that a WRX and S2000, stock for stock, are pretty even to start with on an autocross course .....then you add r-comps to an already capable roadster....is it really "proper competition" for a 4-door sedan on street tires, even with a turbo? Or pretty much any other car on street tires, for that matter?

    my suggestion in the off-season was to make r-comps a 2-class bump, or just make a single r-comp class. They make a far greater difference to a car's capability on course than a turbo or a rotary does, IMO.

    I was a proponent of just making X1 an r-comp class and condensing the four "street tire" classes into three with larger displacement ranges. Especially these days when displacement doesn't have alot to do with power or how fast a car is in autocross, really. Miatas and S2000s and Evos can clean the clock of most V8 cars out there in autocross....

    but whatever, it's just for the sake of argument. I'm gonna stay in X2 for the sake of running against all the other cars similar in performance to mine (the WRXs, Mazdaspeed3s, 350zs, etc) and they guys I ran against last year. The comment about switching to X1 was just a comeback to Luda saying I was scared of the big bad corvette

    Hi Wes,

    Any number from the second part of the AM session should work. I guess 171, 177, 181, are easy. Should I try registering for PM and then you'll transfer me? It does not allow me to finish my registration without selecting a number.

    Thank you.

    I hadn't noticed your proposal before. I think it makes a lot of sense. Too bad it wasn't brought up at our annual meeting last month. It might have been adopted.
