makes sense, so for stock guys who don't want to buy r-comps? i assume some multiplier for class in there. sounds like a ton of fun!

At the National level, yes. Locally, the classes are expanded to include the xSP classes as well.

Edit: Actually, if I remember right, any R-comp class car on street tires can play in the RTx classes (locally). In the local region, these 3 classes replace the previous Street Tire indexed class.

Exactly. The street tire modifier (0.975) is still used with these new classes to compare pax with the rest of the group. For example my car is G Stock so the pax would be the GS pax of 0.816 multiplied by the street tire pax of 0.975 to get a new pax of 0.7956.

I really loved that course. Could have used a little taller wheel/tire combo today during that middle section. Was on the limiter quite a bit. Tried going to third once but that was too much hassle. I think if I could have accelerated through there more I could have higher than 4th in PAX.

Was a good time, fun course, though I wish they wouldn't have changed it after my first run. The safety issues were understandable, but that part of the track was super fun.

We were on the limiter too. I thought of going to 3rd but decided it wasn't worth it. The M Coupe is geared fairly low, so it was hitting the limiter just before the second set of cones on that straight.

My big excitement was my wife taking the car 4 wheeling. She didn't steer at the end of the non-slalom and decided to turn while in the grass. I got a facefull of it.

Looked like a really fun course from the videos I have seen.

I blew my braking point for that first left during my last run and ended up dropping a wheel in the dirt. This was the first time we've tried Carbotechs. They are amazing but I don't think they were quite bedded in yet.

I overheard Al Hermans talking to someone Saturday about the AX6s and said that they don't dust too badly.

Apparently I tend to brake hard on a regular basis because the wheels on my turd are black in about 3 days. Slight exaggeration.

Yeah I'm not sure why anyone would say they don't dust badly. His wheels were dustly badly after just 4 of our runs and by the time 8 runs were done, they were no longer silver. Maybe they dust less as they age, but they were terrible yesterday. They have amazing stopping power though. I didn't expect that significant of a difference.

I've been running them daily since the beginning of last summer. The dusting hasn't decreased that I can tell.
