      Excellent, informative video Jim! That modular crown is interesting. I hadn't seen it before. I'm amazed at how many of the new Jag XJR-10s were entered. It looks like almost half the grid! The car must be a class-killer. Good to see some Porsches, Mazdas, Toyotas, and Lancias in the mix. I would have loved to participate. Maybe next year...

        The Jag is good because it is wider and longer. More stable on a big track. Plus we could use 13mm wide tires (because the body is wider). The other cars are using about 11.5mm wide. A smaller track and rules to limit tire/wheel width would make the playing field much more level. Some suggest that the Jag should be made to rung with the wheel skirts in place which would also limit the rear track width. On a small home track I still think the Porsches will be just as good.

              So you were allowed to modify the wheels in this race. I do find it really strange they would have Maurizio attend the race and allow NSR wheels and tires in a "Slot it " national race.

                Yes, rear wheels and tires were open.

              Not a lot different to specifying Quick Slicks only for an NSR Nationals. IMO races of this sort should use original manufacturer parts only.

                Totally different. NSR dosen't make a silicone tire and we don't run anything else. We also require NSR wheels to be used along with their guides and just about every other part. Not to mention Quick Slicks is a sponsor of the race. Having a specific tire makes it a lot easier on the guys who don't race on our track on a regular basis.

                Thanks for posting the video and congrats on the race win.
                Can you tell me the gearing and which modular crown and pinion you ran with the rear tyre setup?
                Thanks.

                    Congratulations Jim. Non Evo tires? Very low profile you trued, very thin rubber across the tread over the ribs, great traction with thin rubber over the ribs, more flexibility in the rubber. Awesome!

                    We were using EVO compound ultra grips. I don't have any non EVO.

                    As most of the guys started with 19 x 13 NSR F1 86/89 tires, truing to 17.5mm is really not a big issue, and don't forget the tire measurements were taken after, practice. qualifying, and the race,....they were likely originally trued to 18 (ish) mm.

                  Way to go Jim! Looks like it was a lot of fun. Always interesting to see different rules and regulations applied for different races.
