    can you explain it to me?

    Is it where you chose a time and try to match it?

    I think the old teggy could pull a 16.xx

    If you have a slow car - you should enter. Because it's pretty easy to run your car consistently. If you have a fast car, it would require some actual driver skill to win. The unfortunate problem is that it's not about being fast, it's about the consistency.

    So, if you want to win, go get a 4-cylinder automatic. Practice your reaction time cuz that's all thats going to matter, and you'll win the next event.

    It takes skill to run the slower car, too. Consistency is critical, true, but cutting a light can make the difference between winning and losing.

    Actually, this series was set up to accommodate cars of all capacities - if enough showed up. Since there doesn't seem to be as much interest in actually racing Sport Compacts - as opposed to standing around in parking lots talking about going fast - bracket racing is how it has to be, since that allows everyone to race.

    As for the slow cars having an advantage, it seems to me that I saw your red 300ZX win an event last year - running some pretty decent numbers.
