Hey Jim,
Do you know if the Schedule they have on the SCCA site is real?
I'm used to not being allowed on the site until after 5:00 on Friday.
It would be nice to actually have a test course available.
Thanks!

The specifications of the R4-1s look interesting. The one thing I remember with the R4-S is the very first stop of the morning after leaving my driveway took some extra force on the pedal.  :)
They never needed any more heat than that to work.

I ran the R4-S on my MR2, and found them really easy to modulate and easy on the rotors. The R4-1 is new, and I have not heard anything about them.
I also ran Hawk HPS on the Shelby, and thought they were OK for autocross use, but no idea if they would stand up to a track day.

You just got a new option.
The May "Fastrack" is out, and the 2011/2012 V6 Mustangs are moved to D Stock.
(The V6 Genisis and other V6 Pony cars don't move until next year because of how the rules are set up.)
This should be avery cool class. Very course dependent.

I saw the GT500 rims at SeAD, but I thought Cody said something about running the 17's, which are, 8" (?) I think.
Everyone is right that the best bang for the buck is improving the space between the ears, but Cody seems to like playing with parts and if by being careful he can make sure he doesn't end up having to run street mod or prepared, the better off he'll be.
Cody, if you're bored, "google" the Vorslag STX Mustang build. I'm not suggesting you need to go that far, but you might get some ideas of what's possible.

Hi Guys,
I don't have a lot of time to get into details right now, but the Mustang is STX legal. Even the 5.0 V8. That's why I ran it Sunday. (It has 4 seats, and is not a sports car, no matter what Detroit says.)
So Cody can run 9" wide rims with 265 tires, do the ECU flash, and if I remember correctly the 3.73 final drive was an option. What I'm not sure of is if it was only available with the Performance Pack" on by itself. If it was only available in the package You'll have to add the other parts that were included in that package to be legal.
Cody, go to the SCCA web site and dig up the rule book. Just remember the ST* rules build off of the stock class rules, so you can only do what the ST* rules say on top of what's allowed in Stock.
As you see, it's not a short answer, and I have to run...

I'm pretty sure they can/will.
Because they have two larger groups, what they might not allow this time is just showing up once in a while to run one or two weeks.
Tell whoever is interested to show up Tuesday, and we'll figure out something.
I think you might have noticed, everyone is pretty flexible.
