Title: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: BHase on April 25, 2007, 10:25:21 AM
Is anybody out there one of those famed SCCA classification gurus? I have a hard enough time classifying stock cars, but I'm totally stumped on this A6.  After about an hour on the '07 rules, I decided to put this out there.  Here's the data on the car...

2001 A6 2.7T Quattro
APR Chip
245-width tires
turbo-back exhaust

I thought STU for awhile, since the S4 2.7T's run it, but didn't know if the chip made all the difference.  

Anybody planning on going to Colo.Springs next Sunday for the Solo2 event, by the way?

Ben

I believe it would be one of the Street Prepared classes because of the modified boost levels the chip provides.  You're not running any upgraded diverter valves or wastegate controllers, are you?  You may try searching through the SCCA forums or posting the question on rmsolo.org.  I'll be at the event this weekend.

I'm actually not sure what is in it, entirely. I am pretty sure it has an upgraded bypass valve.  I saw your car up on the lift at Autobahn last week. Nice!
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: ianacole on April 25, 2007, 12:17:44 PM
Thanks Ben!  With the upgraded bypass valve you would most likely fall in Street Modified (SM).
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: Docwyte on April 25, 2007, 01:12:00 PM
Why would an upgraded bypass valve make any difference?  It doesn't add any real power or performance.  I could see a boost controller or chip that played with the boost...
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: ianacole on April 25, 2007, 01:31:05 PM
This year they changed the rules to allow boost modifications into other classes ( -SP classes specifically).  However, any other modification to components that have indirect control over the forced induction system (BVs, DVs, wastegate controllers) will still put you into Street Modified.  Is the bypass valve similar to the diverter valve in the 1.8t?

I was under the impression the bypass and DV were the same?? 8O  8O If they aren't  :x I also didn't think you could upgrade the wastegate on the K03- is that the case?

I would like to try and come down...don't know if I'll X the A4, but I'd like to come down.

If you want to AutoX the GTI, you have until tomorrow at 10am to register on rmsolo.org (register as 169FP).

I would like to come down with you guys. But i need to help my parents pick up their new RV. My father has to work, and mom can't drive a 37' 5th wheel. Well maybe she can, but dad doesn't trust her to drive the new truck, and especially hauling the new trailer.

JR i would like to meet up sometime and check out the new ride. You still working downtown?
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: BHase on April 25, 2007, 04:30:12 PM
Thanks for the help. I registered myself in as #2 SM.  First time throwing the A6 around the track...

Speaking of which, I've never done SCCA racing in Colorado (only in Missouri). How are heat assignments done? I have somebody that wants to come down and watch, but not for the entire day.

Don't know about the wastegate itself, but the N75 can be swapped out, which throws you into SM.
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: BHase on April 25, 2007, 04:30:40 PM
Oh and I'm going to apologize beforehand for the very chromy wheels I have on the A6, from the previous owner. No money for new ones ATM!

And one more thing...anybody know a good place around here to get some gloves and magnetic numbers/letters?

I know the N75 can be swapped out...I've done it :? But I think my Forge already buts me in SM doesn't it? Hmm...should I? I need to decide...I can't drive worth sh*t though :lol:

Eric, yeah, I do still work downtown and the car sits in the secure garage across the street. Hit me up and we'll do a line out by the car :lol:
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!

Yah, the DV and/or Wastegate controllers will put you in SM.

Checkpoint racing may have some on hand...down on Walnut I think.  For magnetic numbers you can always hit up Home Depot or a hobby shop for magnetic material and cut your own.  Or, use painter's tape.

Ben, you can always use that new washable paint. I saw a guy do it on his Z06. I don't think I want to try it but I guess it works...

Ian, you got a helmet I can borrow? I'll pack my lunch and chair and setup under the awning of the Semi (RV)  :D

This is going to be good old fashioned fun! I'm trying to get out before the afternoon, as I have some stuff in Denver I don't want to put off unnecessarily, so I'm hoping they'll give me the registration table or course setup; meaning, I'll be there early!

And that washable paint thing scares me. Magnetic numbers here I come!
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: Docwyte on April 25, 2007, 05:45:06 PM
Yeah, but a divertor valve is the same thing as a bypass valve, which doesn't do jack to the boost level.  A wastegate controller is a far different story, that's what I don't understand.

All the DV/BPV does is recirculate the boost back into the intake tract, it has no control over how much boost is there.

Good...leave it to Ian to make me think I'm off in turbo never-land. From what I understand is the N75 is like the middleman, telling the ECU what's going on down low, receiving instruction and passing it on to the wastegate- the wastegate's like the company bitch in the basement doing what's it's told, in the case, opening and closing boost or something. Example, when I didn't hook my N75 back up, my turbo did squat and air exhaust air made the fan move or so's much I could tell :roll:

Ben, I asked for the exact same thing! 1: Event Setup 2: Registration...or was it a corner boy? Can't remember...I want to set up in the morning, I know that.

yeah and where to buy magnetic numbers???

Eric, do you have a Canopy? Ian, I'll bring your camera, the camera mount and some tapes  :twisted:

I have a canopy, on both the rig and the trailer, and an EZ-up.  Morning setup may or may not be full, check the forums in the General Autocross forum for a "course setup sign-up" thread.

We do lunch in the rig - everyone's invited.

Thanks JR - I forgot about the camera.

This is going to be fun to watch - too bad I'm not SM any more  :cry:

Ian, it doesn't look like he has 8 people, can you sign me up? I can't get the registration to see my image verification correctly...I put that down as first on my work preference list too...THANKS!!

Eric and Ben, if you guys haven't ordered numbers yet, let me know, I'm ordering mine and I have to hit a $20 limit, don't know if it'll just my two sets will make that or not...so hit me up this morning here and if you haven't ordered, I'll throw your numbers in with mine.

Yeah, I think you definitely qualify for SM. My numbers and done and picked up already. Call John at Signs by Tomorrow in Lakewood (Ian posted their number in my business card recommendation thread)- it was only $30 for mine.
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: ianacole on April 26, 2007, 07:24:20 PM
Eric, if John can run them for you tomorrow I can pick them up (I'll be there by 3 to pick up my trailer - wait until you guys see this ;) :o ).  Just tell him to do the same format that he's done for Jay and me.  I signed you up on the thread for course setup (6am).  I haven't seen a response from Kinch regarding the crew, so keep an eye on that thread.  If you don't get course setup, the Chief of Workers will assign a duty based on what heat you're running.

Buzz me if anyone has any questions.  I'll be at WA Saturday evening around 5pm.

Ummmmm, yeah, just ask John to make you some magnetic numbers in the same style as mine and Jay's (the numbers are larger than the class letters).

I also just found out that I'm running heat 1 while SM is running heat 2.  IF I have a passenger seat, you all are welcome to come for rides ;)

Well, I'm Novice and have to pre-grid before the 8am novice course walk. So I'm assuming for everyone in SM...at the same time
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: ianacole on April 27, 2007, 06:58:50 AM
Everyone in heat 2 will pregrid during heat 1 for tech inspections.  Heat 2 should start around 11am, depending on how many cars and reruns occur during heat 1.

Ben, call John and see if he can include you in the orders.  He opens at 8:30, and tell him I sent you.

Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: Cole on April 27, 2007, 02:32:46 PM
Honestly the S4 is out of it's league in SM.  You find stuff like supercharged E46 M3s in SM :twisted:

Your k03s are better suited to Auto-X than my K04s.
Title: Re: SCCA Classification fun!
Post by: Eric18T on April 27, 2007, 05:08:51 PM
i'll be there, styling in my comfy slow A4. It should be fun.

They need to make a subclass for overweight, underpowered Audi's. SM just doesn't seem right.

I only see one other Audi registered. This should be interesting to see how much slower i will be vs the properly prepared cars in our class. Nothing like sticking a AWD K03'd 1.8T like JR & I in the same class a Supercharged M3 and Subi STI's w/ R-Compounds.

Maybe i will have to bring down my r-compounds instead of running street rubber.

Mad fun in Colorado Springs was had by all, I think!  My best time was 64.2, which I am somewhat pleased with considering I am not used to my A6 and it needs to be...customized to my liking.

Props to Ian, not just for some awesome racing in the badass GTI, but also for all the assistance! Lunch and/or drinks are owed at the next opportunity.

I saw that. You looked better out there than most people!

I saw the total results, and have been looking for cheap race slicks ever since... :idea:

Thanks Ben - I feel really good about yesterday, even though I know the car's still faster than the driver.  It was the highest point total for an event that I've ever earned, and knowing that I gave up an additional ~10 points by being in FP over SM makes me feel even better.  That course sure was fun!!!

It was a great course. I've never raced on one quite that open before. Nice to let the 2.7T straighten itself out a bit. I also liked that you looped back over the course...although that little cone box threw me off, hence the +2 on the first run... :D

Here is a link to the pictures of my car from the autocross race on 04.29.  As you can see from the first two, I had some "problems" figuring out where to go that cost the lives of two comes.
