I think for what you have now, you'll be in the street touring class unless all the mods you mention is installed. Once all the mods is completed, you be in the SPB class.
thanks dave

Nick, you can request me as an instructor if you want. I promise not to laugh at you if you suck, but I might call you a ***** if you don't use your brakes hard enough Just ask for Ryan Catucci in the notes field on your registration page.

I'll be there!

I think I will be putting a "no-boost" sticker on the windshield of my car though. Last time people were pointing me by on the straights but didn't let off because they though I had a turbo so there was no way I could pass them with my measly N/A 2.5L of aluminum consuming power!

Maybe next year I'll get around to doing an engine swap :P This engine can't last forever.....can it?!

I'll be in ST3 or something, I forget. Just suspension stuff on a GC 2.5RS. I got a 1:28 lap time last time so I doubt I'll be competing with any of you guys

You know what? When I gave Ryan a ride at Lime Rock, he did that to me too...... I figured he was just nervous. Come to think of it, it was not my leg......

I didn't see you registered, Ryan.

I did see Nick.....hahahaha SSB.

One of the COM guys who used to drive a 350Z Track dropped a bunch of brake pads on my lap - some in boxes, some in plastic bags. I also have a bag full of wheel studs, one unnamed rotor, and a bunch of other random things.

The pads seemed to stop just fine at NHMS1 and WGI. Never look a gift horse in the mouth.

If you can fit into a 7 1/8, you could borrow mine, but it's not a large...more like a medium. (KFoote, close your browser).... Nick...put yourself in STGT. When you're in tech, tell them you're only doing the school. This will reduce hassles. When I drive my street car on school days, I don't put a class on the car. (illegal, but that's what I do)

For a 2 driver car, fill in as a 2 driver car. They'll put you and your tuner in 2 different groups. Likely 3 and 4 unless the tuner has lots of track time. You'll both have to pay the full fee.

Don't worry that you are not driving well. In 4, nobody drives well. (for that matter, there are huge differences in average driving skill from 4 to 3 and 3 to 2 and 2 to 1 and 1 to instructors). Pay close attention to the instructor and do what he says. (unless he says to turn left at turn 3......I do that all the time for some reason). Stay in your comfort zone and allow the instructor to drive your car for the first 3 or so laps. Don't "try" to be fast. Overdriving into a corner will not make you fast. Better to be slow in and fast out. Try to snag rides with any instructor during the 0 run group sessions if you're not otherwise tied up with class or other required stuff.

Get searching for laps at NHMS in-car on line. There are tons of vids. Watch them with a track map and try to get as much in memory about where the track goes as possible. I still remember, back when we ran 2 stone wheels at Bridgehampton being lost on the course. Luckily, Barney was on the side pointing me in the right direction with promisses of Bronto burgers if I didn't slide off the side of the volcano into the tar pits.

I HAVE to buy a helmet... I will sweat it to death I'm sure!

If I'm only running the student day, does the classifiecation really matter. I picked SSB since as of this very moment I am SSB (I think). The bits mentioned will be installed the week of the event. Is STGT overshooting or being optimistically honest?

Ok on the 2 driver dealy, that's what I figured. I asked the question in the notes on the registration but nobody got back to me yet.

Yeah I have no track experience, I've run autoX a couple of times, but not in the new car. I will listen blindly! Good news is since I have no real experience I shouldn't have too many bad habits to break.

I will look for some track vids to get a better feel for the track. I was looking for a track map, but didn't run across one yet.

What is the difference between STGT and SPB? The parts will be on the car before the event. So I'll also need to contact the COM guys to get my classification right.

I'll just listen to what you tell me, since I don't know any better! I did already register though, so how can I request you at this point? I'm not afraid to use my car, and brakes I'll be happy to apply, I think in the acceleration part I might be a little gunshy at first until I get more use to the car on the track.

Nick,

Classification doesn't matter as much on the student day, except that certain classes have higher safety requirements. However, it doesn't matter in your case since you'll either wind up in SSGT (stock) or SPB (turbo, injectors, etc.) and they both have the same safety reqs.

ST1 is if you only have exhaust, suspension, etc. If you touch boost, you go to SP, unless you're The Sandy Clam.

Speaking of Sir Clam, he posted a video here, with the new south chicane configuration:

Regarding your other questions:
1. You can email Will Martins - [email protected] - and request The Clam for your instructor.
2. As AARP mentioned, dual drivers will be placed in separate run groups, but you must let them know at the time you register.

Raj

something something SPB requires rollbar something......

A stock STi is STGT.
Stock LGT and 2.0L WRX are SSA
N/A 2.5 is SSB
N/A 2.2 is SSC


lotsa laps with nesic'rs in both seats. You may hear to take a left in 3 as this instructor is known for saying that

The configuration is the same but will look different and the transition from 10 through to 12 is probably totally different. In know they did a bunch of upgrades and stuff. The turns are the same.

WTLY.

SPB doesn't require rollbar this year. Stock STI is SSGT, not STGT. Modified STI's are ST1 now.
