I think you should only be allowed one run per car, not per class. Otherwise I could have a time for my 242DL in n/a mode and another run for it in N2O mode. I don't see this as being fair so I will only submit a time for n/a in that car.

14pts for n/a + 22pts for N2O = 36 points which would be the equivalent of going 14.49 in FI class. I doubt that's what the rule makers had in mind and it's not in the spirit of the EvsW.

what... you cant count?
11.99 = 61
11.89 = 62
11.79 = 63
etc...

run a sub 12 sec 1/4 and i'll be glad to calculate

As for the nAWWSs - do i need to make a choice on this? or have we already scored a juiced run this year?

I think you misread the rules -
#7 - If a vehicle changes classes within the year, only the current class will be registered.

however

#4 - 1 registered run per vehicle per class. 1 turbo, 1 n/a, 1 non-Volvo

doesnt matter, as per last year, nos is a "free mod" for either class, i.e. its preseence won't put you into another class... Because as its already been made apparent, simply jugging an na brick doesnt land you in the stratosphere.


besides, the NA guys need all the help they can get

*edit
And iirc last year it was towery that came up with that idea, in some mannor of trash talk towards 242gtmd

So what you are saying is that we can run nitrous in a NA car and it will still be classified as a NA car?

I would like a definite ruling on this because if this is the case, I'd like to see how much juice it will hold before she blows.

So what is even with the whole class system thing? It's not like an NA that runs 14.00 gets anymore points than a turbo that runs 14.00, is it? Doesn't look like it to me according to the points scale, so what's even the point?

no a 14 n/a does not earn more points than 14 turbo.

its like this.

1. it allows members to see how they are doing against each other.

2. regardless of whats going on on the E vs. W rules thread.

its a documentation for this:

im allowing members to have two times if they have two cars and one car is n/a and one car is either turbo or non-volvo powered. this rule is because several members have asked for it, i kinda like it, and no one has objected.

that and i want more n/a cars on the list this year...(personal agenda i suppose).

It's a loophole is what it is.

I can run a NA car with N2O and get at least a low 15, maybe into the 14's for the cost of a used $150 NOS kit.

THEN, I can go run my slightly modified 245ti to about the same times and get points for it also.

EDIT: 2 15 second flat cars equal one 12 flat car.... 60 points

Yep, Rob drove the GT to a 16.099 @ 84.98 with a 35 shot in 2nd AND 3rd gear. I just beat that ET twice with nothing but hot air.

yes and no. and I can spray my 244 as well, for a 15 of some sort, see, and raise your 245ti's time by a fair margin with my 744. loop hole maybe, but not that big of a loophole, and it works both ways ;)

Nah, he's slimming down... I think he might have less than 10 overall now. He only has 5 I think up here...?(maybe even 4!) Sad. To think I live with him and don't even know.

Dana if you could send me the spread sheet you're using I might be able to come up with one that will have a single place to enter and automagically parse it into the seperate views then it would just be copy each view to paint and post.

Lemme know

Thanks

The charts on page 1 have nitrous listed at NO2 when it should be N2O.

Uhm, I just noticed that 242fast's points are wrong, he should've gotten 43 pts...? I didn't want to go through and check all the points for the correct amounts for the times, but I do suggest it for you Dana, sorry man.
