1999 Pontiac Firebird - SCCA T4/ITR
Ready to race in T4 & ITR (as is) or swap in a carb'd SBC or LS1 and run in A-Sedan.  Car is SUPER clean and needs NOTHING to hit the track.

I purchased the car from Phoenix Racing mid-April 2016, raced six events in 2016 (2nd in GLDiv T4 points) and three events in 2017 (last event was June 2017).  Easy on tires (average ~8 heat cycles on Hoosier A6s and ~10 heat cycles on BFG R1-Ss) and not bad on brakes (6-8 sessions depending on track). Car is very predictable/forgiving to drive with no surprises. Post-race weight average is ~3230# with 230# driver (max spec weight = 3250#).

I agree totally with you.   Roll Eyes

I am just trying to understand how the system works so that when I get the opportunity for a LFB co-driver to wring out my car, I can maybe do something so the he will not have to completely go against his long developed style.  I would like to find a legal, safe way (doesn't affect ABS) to disable or minimize the intrusion of the BOS.

I have never LFB and more than likely never will, and as such was completely caught off guard when my Champ Tour co-driver reported almost complete power loss during his first TnT runs in my car.

My research continues...............  Smiley

Hey all! Not yet on autocrossing but finding my way. I'm looking at a 2000 Impreza

Welcome to the Forum!  

Finding a nice older Impreza can be a challenge.  There are a few folks on the board here that are into these, particularly the Rallycross folks.  Check with ZB Lorenc, Sigma Auto Tec, as he does a lot of Subaru work.  Same with Sean Butt at The Northend Wrench as he is always buying and flippling Subaru's.

I've been there quite a few times so far.  The car seems to holding up though a better transmission is in order.  At least it sounds pretty good when it's running.

RandyT = RandyT

I run the 1993 Thunderbird when it runs.  Hopefully I have all of the kinks worked out for tomorrow.

Welcome to the Forum!  Hope to see you at an event soon!

The Corvette does not like the brake and throttle to be depressed at the same time.  After years of LFB, we've gone back to RFB and use the dead pedal to keep us planted in the seat.

While admittedly I do not have cat-like reflexes (unless it's an old, fat, half-blind cat), I think to get the timing just right to not engage the the system and do effective LFB in a modern car is going to be a challenge, and I think you are better off just doing RFB.  It's too easy to leave one of your feet hovering over the pedal and inadvertently engage the system at an inopportunity time.
