2014 86CUP presented by Winmax, rules and schedule

***These rules are based around Buttonwillow 13CW, which is a purpose built testing track in California, that equally rewards balance, power, mechanical grip, and aero grip. 1 point is roughly analogous with 1 second at Buttonwillow 13CW. Multiple cars and drivers were used to compile data, from which this list is derived. ***

**If you believe a value to be incorrect, please provide evidence to back up your claims**

*2:05 is the assumed time for a 100% stock car with just 140+TW tires, brake pads, and camber bolts to be equipped*

86CUP CLASSES

Stock Class - 0.5 points maximum
The purpose of this class is to keep costs down and be attractive to a newcomer with a stock or minimally modified FRS or BRZ. Drivers of all experience levels are welcome. Tires are restricted to TW 140+ and no larger than 225 width.

Certain modifications are not allowed in Stock class:
- No Level 2 Front Aero
- No Level 1+ Rear Aero
- No Level 1+ Rear Wing
- No light-weight aftermarket parts, no aftermarket body panels, or any interior removal (unless necessary for safety equipment).
- No forced induction

Street Class - 3.5 points maximum
The purpose of this class is to allow moderate modifications to a primarily street-driven car. Drivers/owners are allowed flexibility to choose different modifications, while being exposed to an even playing field. 2850 minimum weight with driver and FULL tank of gas

Modified – 6.5 points maximum
Modified cars are expected to have a myriad of dedicated performance modifications. Cars in this class will typically either have a large amount of power and/or are easily identifiable as a track driven car. 2750 minimum weight with driver and FULL tank of gas.

Super Modified - 10 points maximum
Minimum weight for Super Modified Class is 2700 pounds with driver. Who knows what you may see in this class...

WEIGHING

Rules
Each class has a minimum weight: at any point during the day, a competitor with driver inside must meet that minimum weight. If and when a competitor is found to be below minimum weight, he will be penalized 1 second for every 25 pounds he is under the minimum weight. If this is the competitor’s first violation, the first 25 pounds will be allowed as leeway (for possible scale-to-scale variation), but he will be penalized for any further discrepancy. Also, if this is the first violation, he may choose to forfeit all laptimes he has accrued until the weighing process, add back weight to his car to meet minimum weight, and re-start new timed laps instead of taking a lap-time penalty. Any repeat violations will automatically incur the lap time plenty as outlined above.

Weighing Protocol
One competitor from each group (Street and Modified) will be selected at random to be weighed at any time during the day. The probability of being weighed is directly proportional to the number of points he has accrued throughout the season (for example, this is equivalent to adding one’s name in a hat once for every point he scores, then drawing from that hat at random). That means top drivers have the highest likelihood of being weighed, and drivers who have yet to score points will never be weighed.

Weighing Logistics
Two drivers from each class may volunteer or will be randomly selected to participate in the weighing process. Only drivers from a different class may weigh one class (to create impartiality). For example, if a Stock class participant is being weighed, only the two drivers from Street and two drivers from Modified may assist in the weighing process. All who participate in the S2KC implicitly agree to help with the weighing process if called upon, barring any extenuating circumstances.

PROTEST PROTOCOL
A competitor may also be spot-weighed if two peers (or at least half of the participants of that day, whichever is less) from the same class believe the competitor to be in violation of minimum weight. That competitor will be liable to be weighed on the spot. In addition, if a competitor suspects another is underrepresenting his points, he may bring his concern to a member of the 86CUP board immediately, so that a board member can audit the car at that point, and compare the setup to that declared on the signup sheet. If a participant fails the audit, he can choose to: 1) correct the violation and forfeit all a previous laps and redo timed laps for any remaining sessions; or 2) take a 1 second penalty for every 0.25 points he is over the limit.

Prizes
Prizes at individual events for each class will be awarded regardless of number of competitors in the class.
Year-end prize winners need to have participated in atleast 6 events.

It would allow for a car to come with, for example:
255 NT01 on 17x9 RPF1 = 2.75 points

Do you think it would be faster than a Greddy Turbo car on 215 RS3 on 17x8 rims? = 3.5 points

Or, would it be faster than a car on Tein SRCs, 225 RS3 on 17x9 wheels, intake, header, exhaust, tune, and lip? = 3.5 points

The beauty of this system is that it allows for a TON of flexibility with mods, while equalizing the playing field. I've put a pretty good amount of thought into the system.

people with wider wheels and tires generally have lower springs or coilovers, and intake, exhaust, and some other mods too...

Naturally, not everyone will have a maxed out car for the class they fall into. It's up to the competitor in how much they want to spend to be the most competitive they can be within their class.

The CSG BRZ will just be in whatever class it falls into. It won't be build to "max out" any class.

@ImperiousRex, coincidentally, has a maxed out Mod class car as it sits now... which is great because his car is a perfect example of what a Mod class car can be.

Rules look good to start, and you will learn fast by complaint level about what does not work.

At the risk of sounding very egotistic, I reserve the right to refute claims by asking that a given setup be proven too fast/too slow by either myself, maxrev, chris willard, renzo marsano, or matt andrews.

If someone is claiming a part is overvalued, but they're running under the baseline time of 2:05... well...

Excellent rules draft. Seems to provide each driver with a class equal to purpose of car. Personally, I have wanted to keep my car street drive able with some key track minded upgrades. Using these rules, I would be allowed level 1 R compound tires and be maxed out for Street class with 3.5 points. The rules also force smaller drivers to add weight to stay legal or larger drivers to remove weight and stay in class. Great work evening the playing field, in each class.

I approve of the new rules as well! While the 2013 rules were nice for a beginning season, there was quite a lot of wiggle room that created some harder situations for newer folks coming in to deal with vs. some of the veterans. Hopefully with the new rules we'll get to see how a few different set ups pan out and it will give all of us more data and information on more optimal track setups. Excited!

If anyone has issues with the new rules, you should come out to the track and prove Mike wrong! Or just come out anyways, because the more the merrier!

question: is it possible that we may have an 86 cup in the east coast area? I know many people who would love to race the ft86 in its own class but california is too far away.

You guys are more than welcome to use the ruleset, or modify it as you see fit for your own series!

I'd love to see a nationwide series with a "regional" championship and a "national" championship, but that would require the rules to be equal across the board.

If you do use the rules, please give credit for the ruleset! We may also be interested in sponsoring your local series if you can round up a regular group that shows up to the events
