Running a Texas Mile prepped car at Wilmington
« on: June 23, 2015, 08:46:56 PM »
Okay, I have a car that was built to 200-215 mph specs per Texas mile rules... see here: https://www.texasmile.net/pdf/TexasMile_RRTS2015_Edition_1-9-15.pdf
My head is swimming trying to figure out what, if anything, needs to be done to run at the Maxton. If someone more familar with the ecta rules can advise me I'd greatly appreciate it!!

Nothing will run at "The Maxton" is went away a few years ago.

ECTA rules are very similar if not the same as SCTA for car, class and engine. Really no way to know for sure until you get an ECTA  rule book and compare the rules to your car/class/engine.
ECTA    Maxton D/CGALT  Record Holder 167.522
ECTA    Maxton D/CBGALT Record Holder 166.715

Get you an ECTA and SCTA rule book  (IF you are going to play this game you might as well only have to RE-build it ONCE---It most likely will take you a while-- to go over the car and make the changes and upgrades  it will need  "TO COMPLY"  but you will have a much safer car. I would bet you are have bunch of up grades depending on the class you chose.

Looking at the Texas rules and they are very lax as compared to ECTA/SCTA.  199-215 minimum requirements wont get you to 150 at Ohio..

Well, I guess we're making a LOT of progress . . .  :roll:

We are NOT rebuilding . . . We are reloading.
