MAZDA MX-5 CUP SERIES

Post by Guest on Fri Jun 15, 2012 5:59 am

Recently I watched the Mazda Cup Race at Laguna Seca on the tube and the race was close all the time and it looked pretty decent and fun. So my idea is to have a mock MX-5 Cup series with three races. The specifications are strict and therefore should make for some good close racing. This is how I want to do it:

RULES
Spoiler:
-This is where it gets interesting.

ALL TUNING done to vehicle can only be TIRE PRESSURE, RIDE HEIGHT, BRAKE FORCE, AND AERO.


-Cars will be power REDUCED to the drivers tier position:

10% - tier 1
5% - tier 2
0% - tier 3


-Damage will be full SIMULATION
-In the event of a crash in the first lap we will restart the race ONCE, no differently than that of normal MSM rules
-Mandatory pit stop will be enforced between laps 12 and 15 , driver’s choice.
-Possible (undecided) rolling start like that of Bobbo`s Blancpain series (kudos).


UPGRADES
Spoiler:
Race Air Filter...

Race Ignition...

Race Exhaust...

Race Flywheel...

Race Brakes...

Race Suspension...


Race Anti-Roll (Front & Rear)...

Race Roll Cage...

Race Weight Reduction...

Race Clutch

Race Tires (Max width front & rear)...


Street Tranny...

Autoexe Front Bumper...

Forza Wing...

Gialla Rear Bumper

Autoexe Skirt

*drivers choice of rim selection*


CAR
Spoiler:


2007 Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe

After installing upgrades car should be around A525 depending maybe on rim selection and should have close to these numbers:

Speed …………..4.5

Handling………..6.4

Acceleration…....7.0

Launch…………7.6

Braking………....6.8


TRACKS
Spoiler:


Road Atlanta Full……..25 Laps

Sebring Full………………25 Laps

Laguna Seca……………..28 laps



Now, this is my idea of what could be some good, close, fun racing. However, I DO NOT want to host this series because I’m am no good with organizing things, plain and simple. So ill set up a poll, simple YES if you’re interested (say yes!) and NO if you’re not. Hopefully with enough yes’ we can kick the series off.

update
*there will be a number plate required and possible required logo which I will make...eventually...

**theres seems to be good interest in this so I`d like to kick off things A.S.A.P. that said, i have a busy schedule for the next couple of days but once i figure something out ill post it and ill also be hosting i suppose. cheers!

just a side note, i drove the car around laguna a couple times and it pretty fun to drive. i know its not an A or S class monster but with enough ppl i think it would be decent racing.

Question. Will there be any specifics for a paint for this? Like a numberboard, required logo, etc.? Also I built mine to your specs without rims and im at a A523 with every stat correct except I have 6.9 vs your 7.0 accel.

No specifics for paint, however i will be making a number plate which will have to be put on both sides of car. this can be downloaded off my storefront or sent to you once i have made it. and ur right about the car class. i goofed up. as far as the accel difference. try putting on the Wattanabe rims, those are the ones i have, might give you that .1 point.

Never even noticed this. personally, i think my specs will add up to some better racing. and obviously theres interest in it. also the car used will be the 07 MX-5 and also the car is A class. go ahead and build a car to my specs and ull see that itll most likely be some decent racing for sure

It was successful, good turnout and good racing. Some people may think it's a bit soon but I'd be up for it.

OK! so just to let everybody know Ive updated the outline (spoilers) for the Playboy MX-5 Cup Series. so far we have eight (confirmed racers including myself: DeadTaco, IFAMILYGUY11, xVampirAx, Bobbo (possibly), B4D BOY69, Live4xTc, and Littleevil00. I`d like to get at least 4-5 more ppl for sure before I get a racing calender set-up for this. so come on people!

If this is a race that can be run on Friday nights deal me in.

I mean the tuning limits REALLY suck but oh well.

***PLEASE READ***
OK fellow racers, there seems to be some decent response to kick off this series. SO, by getting things underway I'd like to do things a little differently then usual. instead of setting my own dates and times, i want to get peoples input for race days and times. due to my shedule days available for me to host will be THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SUNDAY (days least likely for booty calls). all times are eastern time. times available to host are (depending on day) 1:00pm through to 9:30 pm. Now, this is open for YOU to decide. I know this will not cater to everbody so instead of just picking anytime i want and anyday, i hope to get more of a turn out doing this.

SO PLEASE, if u plan on racing in this event, then post which day(s) and time(s) would be good for you and that way ill come to a decision of final race dates and times. **important: ANY race day that conflicts with MSM standard events will be POST-PONED to a later date

Sidenote: any updates about rules/tracks/cars will be posted on the FIRST page in the original post. however, after the series has begun, there will be NO change to rules/tracks/cars/times etc.

Thank you.

I would recommend Sunday, and generally an earlier start time North American works better because of the time difference to Europe.
