Re: 2012 SCREAM GT - Dodge Viper ACR-X Cup

Jan 18, 2012

now that the 2011 season is finished, (thanks for being a great race host, Snake) I'm excited to start this new season!  (though it is a ways away)

my only thought is the qualifying scheme.  I understand the reasoning behind it, but how do we know a person used the right tires, the right specs, did not cross lines they should not cross, or use run-off/paved in-field areas to gain extra advantage to get that pole position?  it's not a deal-breaker for me, but a concern.

I see why the TPRA does this type of qualifying, but isn't their main concern about the fact that their races use multiple lounges?  For instance, if we only have 16 or less racers in this 2012 season, why can't we just be ready to churn out a fast time on the day of the event?

In that set-up we go to the pits there HP is checked by setting the room too that max hp. If your car is kicked you have too much. Tires can be checked for all drivers in pit line by going to there name. I have yet to find a good way for kg as the room can not be set to the 1447 we will run. As you know from test in the 2011 rules it is very clear when the wight is off as the under wight car runs away from everyone.

There should not be that big of a gap in q times. If there is (anything over 1 sec on the rest of the field) I will ask that the replay of the q lap be uploaded before the race. This way it can be reviewed for line taken by reloading it to a PS.

If the number racing is small I will redo the way we qualify but we need 8 people before the 2012 races can start. Should we have more then 16 we will need two rooms. Or if lag starts to play in.

good ideas.  for weight, you could set to 1440 min just prior, to see if anyone has lowered theirs less than that, and if anyone has violated more than 7kg it will show.  either that, or you could sacrifice some of the authenticity of the ACR-X and just make it weigh 3 more kg so you could set the room at 1450.  That's like having a steak before getting in the race car.  This results in an increase of weight that ammounts to only .2% more.  (not 2%, but .2%).  Something to consider, but you da boss, ma'am!

Cool, and this shouldn't be very burdensome on anyone because it's only once a month.

season #1 was held at 12:00pm Noon EST, 9am CST.  But she may want to do something different come March.

snake, is there any chance of beginning this is February, or do you just have too much going on right now?
