I have a strong interest in running in the new SSC Solo class but it was announced right after I bought my new ND.  Rather than take a bath on the ND, I would like to find a co-drive with someone who plans to regularly run local and National events next year and be driving one car but would definitely entertain, local and National in two different cars.  I like doing Match Tours and did Pitt Race and Peru this year.  Would want to do at least two Pros, ideally three.  Did Blytheville, Toledo, and Michigan this year. Zero interest in doing Tours.

Things that I can offer:
1) Money
2) A good chance at contingency to share - the last few years I have won between 6-8 tires per year, lots of Hawk certificates, etc.
3) I have instructing experience so depending on your skill level, hopefully help you get faster.  I have 10 years of Solo experience and have been fairly competitive at the National level (multi-time ProSolo champ, Solo Nats podium, local driver of the year awards, etc.)

Thanks,
Trev

Trevor, I was thinking of a Sciyobaru for SSC, but bought something else.

If you are looking at running a national progra in SSC and want somebody that can help you get faster, Trevor is your guy!

Trev - I'm hoping to get out more in 2018.

That said, I'm applying extreme pressure on Alan to buy my STI (not really, but I liked the sound of it) so I can can then buy his twin and prep it for SSC.

If I end up building a twin, I'm sure we can look at co-drive options.

I've been very tempted by SSC. Have some coilovers and other STX stuff for my BRZ, but most of it isn't installed yet. Unfortunately SSC doesn't fix my biggest issue with the car, lack of torque/power. Really want to add a header and tune to help fix that problem (or just sell it and buy another Mustang)

A header and tune make it enjoyable to drive out in the wild. On an autocross course or road course, I don't think I'd miss not having it.

Well, Mike has my FR-S and is currently prepping it for SSC. I was gonna see if I could hop in for a National Event or two, but seeing as I have a fun as hell STi sitting in the garage, I知 not gonna be too disappointed if I end up being an SM back marker, especially if it means getting to watch you co-drive with Mike.

+1 to that note.  The new WRX seems like it might need more power above 70mph but for autocross it doesn't need that at all.  The performance in just 2nd gear and below 60mph seems just right.

I'm thinking we will have capability to still run, but have Trev jump in if we plan accordingly. In addition to FR-S/STi, I'll have a couple others ride available for Natl events.

I'm still waiting to see what official tire is picked before moving forward. The fact it's already an STX light build, means it'll be more work to get it back to SSC trim & a winter project for sure - I'll let you know once it's in full motion.
