new points system

NASA is implementing an electronic points system which will enable drivers to see their accumulated points as soon as race results are made official. This is great...but unfortunately it means CMC has to change its season points methodology. All NASA classes will now use the same points system (100 ...

2018 Rules

Obviously not a lot of discussion on rules for CMC, which is both good and bad. The good is the rules are stable and there's not much controversy or grey to try to clarify. The bad...well, some say there's no such thing as bad publicity so take that as you like :D In any case, the rules for 2018 wer...

Re: 2018 rules

6.1 clearly allows non OEM parts as long as the replacement does not offer any performance improvement. :D

Re: 2018 rules

hmmm If there's no performance advantage then why would you be willing to spend $200? Eliminating flex from the suspension is performance enhancing, lets call a duck a duck and not kid ourselves. We've gone over this concept in depth in the past and came to the conclusion that it was not in the seri...

2018 rules

A couple of interesting things to be aware of rules wise... NASA has pulled forward the deadlines for submitting and approving class rules. This is a good thing for NASA, but it leaves us with very little time before deadlines (oct 15). Luckily there really aren't many burning issues to deal with ru...

Re: Tech Bulletin request - Dollar value increase across the board

I'm not keen on arbitrary dollar value updates across the board, and not interested in raising the value allowed for rear wings at all.

2017 Rules Director's Cut

The rules should be published and online Monday, Nov 28th. This year there were no formal RCRs submitted by racers, but I do want to go through a few things the directors discussed and what did and did not change. In no particular order then... Item 1: We incorporated into the rules the allowance fo...

Re: 2016 Rules Change Request open season

Sorry for the silence folks, been doing a lot of travelling for work. There were no official submissions by drivers, but there were a couple of items that the directors wanted to talk through. These have all been wrapped up, and the rules submitted to NASA for final endorsement and posting on the na...

2016 Rules Change Request open season

Time once again to discuss changes for the CMC rules. As is our usual, we'll target the end of November for having the 2017 rules published. Our goal is to only make changes that clarify intent unless the change reduces cost, improves safety, or enables closer competition (closer does not mean lower...
