Some big changes year over year - and will be interesting to see how the new FRS/BRZ "SSC" will do at most of the STX PAX.

The average softening was -0.008, when I calculated the classes that normally contend for PAX in BC, I came up with -0.007. Against that, STX, CM both got softer with CSP, AS, and BS getting harder (not that I am picking on anybody in particular...)

CSP is now harder than all the other SP classes, harder than SM, and only .001 easier then DP.

I understand the results back that up......but holy crap. Hard to believe that a lowly little Miata is faster than a fully prepped big money SSP car. Mind you the other side of the argument would be that there are no fully prepped cars in BSP, ASP, SSP - at least not to the levels that CSP cars use update-backdate, squeezing on massive tires/wheels, weight loss etc. It almost.....almost....makes sense to just move the Miata to SSP and see if CSP gets better numbers with the rest of the forgotten cars that are buried by the Miata.

Might actually consider running slicks in DP for local events - surely they must be worth .001 over A7's?

And Mark you forgot FS in you're local calculation. Stupid Mustang has been know to win occasionally :cry:

Didn't forget - Norm won't be in FS for 2018. Also at 0.07, it's exactly the average so no difference whether included or not.

Slicks and a windshield should be worth 0.001 - should I bring the sawzall? :D
