Basically PAX is a method of being able to compare or equalize all cars. For cars like mine or yours that are in the slowest class (H-Street) it's not realistic to think we could win on raw time. PAX adjusts all time proportionately to allow comparison between classes.
Here's the official blurb....This Index was developed by Rick Ruth and reflects study of results from well over 500 nationwide Solo events including, the Tire Rack® Solo National Championships, National Tour, Alabama Region, Arkansas Region, Atlanta Region, Chicago Region, California Sports Car Club, Central Florida Region, Equipe Rapide (Florida & Texas), Great Lakes Solo Series, Hawaii Region, Houston Region, Midwest Divisional Series, Milwaukee Region, New England Region, Northwest Region, Northern New Jersey Region, Oregon Region, Philadelphia Region, Rocky Mountain Series, San Francisco Region, San Diego Region, South Jersey Region, St. Louis Region, Tri-State Sports Car Council, Texas Region, Washington DC Region, Wisconsin Autocrossers Inc., and many, many others.
The "Street Tire PAX" is something we use to adjust the classes that would normally be on race tires. It's calculated by me based on the "real" PAX numbers. So for instance - Tyson's CRX is in SMF which normally allows the use of R-Compound tires. R-Compunds are at least 1 second faster than street tires. If he chooses to run street tires then the Street Tire PAX adjustment takes his regular PAX and adjusts it down to account for the slower tires.
Make sense? Probably not - you are not alone
Just drive fast - magic math will tell us who won
