No New Posts Handicap racing

Establishing a racing handicap for each racer. This handicap would be used only for a race designated as a handicap race.
For example, we could designate the 80's NASCAR class as a handicap race only.
The podium would be for the three highest lap totals using their handicap.

Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
Keith Tanaka: The older cars were allowed a width of 2 15/16". These cars were raced on the King track many years ago. Although it's an odd dimension, we can simplify the rules by using 2 15/16" width for this class, thus the old and new cars will use the same dimension Dec 17, 2014 21:36:39 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Craig, the 2 15/16" width for the '57-'79 class is being implemented to simplify the rules for this racing class. Some older cars are grandfathered allowing the wider width while our current rules only allow 2 7/8" width. Dec 17, 2014 21:34:03 GMT -8
craigg: Just wondering, why the 1/16" increase in '57-'79 NASCAR chassis width? Dec 17, 2014 13:36:21 GMT -8
bob krigbaum: OK, the "proposed" Group C/IMSA GTP class rules look good. :) Dec 17, 2014 11:22:29 GMT -8 *
Keith Tanaka: I posted the "proposed" hardbody rules which will take effect on January 1, 2015. These are preliminary, the final version will be official on 1-1-2015. Dec 16, 2014 16:50:55 GMT -8
bob krigbaum: The new Group C/IMSA GT class rules look good. Dec 16, 2014 16:49:03 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I posted a poll for determining the date for the D3 hardbody GTP/Group C enduro as well as a poll for the 2015 D3 Hardbody Nats. If you plan on participating in these events, please take the poll. Dec 13, 2014 21:11:41 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I will be ordering the 2015 D3 Hardbody Racing calendar this week. If you want your birthday included in the calendar, let me know your month/day. If you haven't requested a copy of the calendar, let me know NOW before I place the order this week. Dec 8, 2014 17:07:43 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Just for fun I just built a 1/24 Morris Mini Cooper. See the post above for details. Dec 5, 2014 16:19:54 GMT -8
timneja: After Turkey week I'm not sneaking by anyone!!! :) Dec 3, 2014 20:08:17 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: After eating too much turkey, I'll have to try and sneak by you. Dec 2, 2014 20:48:39 GMT -8
craigg: Keith, you never sneak by me, you just blow past every 10 laps or so. Dec 2, 2014 20:29:39 GMT -8 *
Keith Tanaka: Now that you guys have turned into turkeys, I can sneak past you during our next hardbody races on Dec. 21st. Dec 2, 2014 16:23:12 GMT -8
timneja: Happy Day you Turkeys!!! Nov 28, 2014 10:21:04 GMT -8
mkalelaw: If turkey consumption had anything to do with this my results would be better. Nov 27, 2014 13:33:40 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Hey guys, eat a lot of turkey. It will help slow you down so I can sneak by you during our races. Nov 27, 2014 11:55:07 GMT -8
mkalelaw: Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow racers. Nov 27, 2014 10:24:21 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I just posted links above to some video clips (2014 hardbody Nats, 4 hour NASCAR Enduro). Nov 25, 2014 12:55:45 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: The Group C/IMSA GTPs are official starting Jan 2015. The rules for this new class will be posted in December. Who will be the first to record a sub 5 sec. lap during a monthly race? Nov 23, 2014 11:54:47 GMT -8 *
Keith Tanaka: Gonzo will miss our next races this Sunday but is competing in a 24 hr. BRM hardbody race in Tacoma, Wash. this weekend. I posted the link to the live webcast above. Nov 14, 2014 13:49:32 GMT -8 *
