Yep, since Nationals +100lbs has been added to the base for MazdaSpeed Miatas. Stick with your early NB - it's a solid foundation for either *TE or *TD.

Do EVERYTHING you can on the list of free modifications, strategically use your points, and you'll have a contender! Then, it's just up to your driving :).

I guess i didn't see it as a loophole. I don't see it as an exploit. Although maybe it was specifically for that car before the adjustment to the base classing. Ideally it would be the same points no matter what the strategy but with the 7pt steps in classing there are always going to be different ways to do a lot of chassis' that are base classed differently based on engine but include other options.

Please let me know cause Im probably gonna run a less agressive tire like an nt01 for a season or two until stepping up to the tire I want to run a 205 hoosier r6. The cool thing about that r6 is that it is 0 pts in a 205 size.

The reason I ask is my points would be as follows after I take whatever weight they dish me

+10 tire points hoosiers r6
-10 base tire from 245 to 205
+5 points most likely xida
+2 points sway bars/front sway bar
+1 change to aftermarket lsd
+2 aftermarket brakes
+3 front spliter
+4 rear wing

That is at 17 points which I would fill in a couple of points with some cage stuff unless I am required to take the 5 additional points for 6 speed that the car comes with and 3 points for adding an lsd. If that were the case I would run no aero stock sport brakes and 225 hoosiers.

If anyone knows who to send a theoretical baseclass it would greatly help me in determining that cage Im going to build.

Remember, you tire size points is based on your base class not the class that you're competing in. If you base class PTE** and race in PTD, your base tire size is 235 not 245.

Personally I wouldn't use points on a cage.
