It's that time again. Looking for topics of discussion for the 2020 Solosport Workshop. Please post any topics you would like to discuss at the workshop below. Comments on the past season (what went well, what didn't go well, what we can do better) are welcome as well.

Topics:

Seeing how nobody commented.......... All Hondas should get a extra 50 feet of acceleration room before the start timers............ Kinda like the lady's tee's when golfing......

Well with most courses having an immediate hard turn (to discourage burnouts) ten feet after the start, I'll second that! :twisted: :roll:

Only if cars with torque get two free cones per course :P

Luc and Mike will be happy with there RX-7s. Isn't that a average cone count for them?

1) I wish my average were that low
2) First time someone told me my rotary had torque :lol:

I think it has a torque, that when combined with many RPMs, leads to either FTD or a cone-slaughter.

With the new for 2020 XS-A and XS-B Classes that are essentially SM classes on 200tw, does it still make sense to have SMF-T/SM-T/SSM-T in our regional classes?

For information, 2021 PAX values are out.

http://solotime.info/pax/rtp2021.html

XS-A 0.838
XS-B 0.856

SMF 0.841
SM 0.854
SSM 0.875

SMT would be 0.854 * 0.980, or 0.837
SSMT would be 0.854 * 0.980, or 0.858
SMFT would be 0.824

So yeah, I would agree on at least ditching SMT and SSMT for XSA/XSB. For SMT it's only 0.06s worse of a pax on a 60s course, and for SSMT there's really no reason to run the class over XS-B.
