"clutch fan delete" removal of the mechanical fan, I found out this goes under pulley mod which adds points
SAP delete No points added for removing anything emmisions related except for cats.
is the rest of your cooling oem? I knew that cooling was free in terms of points so I didn't list it.

Should probably mention the cage and seats and wheel and whatever other safety stuff. Maybe even tire specs? idk...

All safety equipment is free as well in terms of points.

About $300... If paypal doesn't refund me than my banker will...
That's good that you will get the money back, paypal is pretty good in that aspect.

I know most of you don't know the classing for NASA but after I added the motons and what not I went back through and added up my points. I'm not well into TTS for time trials, almost maxed out actually and at the ragged edge of GTS4. Bad thing now is that all TTS cars and GTS4 cars have full aero, good thing is that if I add aero I will have a completely maxed out car for both TTS and GTS4 so I should be very very competitive in those clases.

I'd have to add 720lbs with my current hp or detune to 300 whp and add like 300-400. I'd rather add aero and stay in GTS4. An e46 M3 won nationals in GTS4 so I know the car is competitive.

Your car might be competetive, but what about driver skill? no offence, but I think you're still kinda new to the game. do you think that will have an impact on your choice of class?

Ouch, lol. I should find out where I'm really at after the Porche Club DE, I hired a race coach for that event so between him and my data logger I should really be able to put things into perspective. As far as skill level goes you know I'm always trying to improve but from what I've been told from people that have ridden with me (club racers, instructors, etc.) is that I would be a very good rookie driver. The thing that differs between de/track driving and racing is racecraft. Anyone can learn to put down blistering laps on an open track but in the GTS series there are 5 classes on track at the same time so you always have traffic and in some cases that traffic isn't just gonna let you by. That's where I think the difference is gonna be, especially my rookie year.

As far as that having an impact on my choice in class, GTS3 is where all the good drivers are at. From what I've been told GTS4 is full of guys that go buy porche cup cars that can't drive a lick. So in that respect if I have a competitive car I'm hoping I can out drive them as well. So GTS4 would be a better starting point competition wise.

I think you will do fine in any class man. You have the passion, that is all you need. + racecar! edit: no hoemo. You just need to trade your wife in for a few wrench turning fanatics. I work for food/beer/*******! You will be trading paint so you might look for an auto body guy also. I think, I know a guy that is ASE cert in ACR and AMR.

^ Andy, keeping it real.

Took the 330ci up to 9600 ft today from 5000ish ft in 30 minutes, it was gasping for breath, kinda like me. Sick road though, and fun roller coaster ride down.


And seriously, **** paypal. Both me and my dad have had hack "attempts" made several times, according to paypal... whatever that means. That and the 3%, which always irks me. You handle thousands of transactions a day, does it really need to be 3%? I guess they more or less have a monopoly on it, so whatever they say goes.
