Trans am wins SCCA autoX ...again
« on: October 24, 2017, 08:35:10 AM »
Travis Hartwell PTFB sponsored has had a great 2017 season, winning the Indy SCCA CAM championship for the 3rd year in a row as well as 3rd at the CAM Challenge East, 3rd at the Motor State Challenge and a 2nd at the SCCA cam autocross Nationals (4th in 2016)
This car is still all steel and glass with full interior, uncut car without a roll bar, the car is the same as last year other than added an Accusump and stepped up to better tires (Bridgestone RE71)

the new tires really made a difference now Buttler performance is on board to help make more power, not much more we can do in the suspension dept. other than tuning and try to put the car on some sort of diet compared to our competitors with LS engines we are down at least 100hp and 300# heavy not to mention they all run 315 to 335 tires we are stuck at 285.

Did FiTech ever come through for the car or did that not pan out?
