There was a reference to Billy's car, which by the way weighs 2020 lbs with that SBF in it.
So no one would complain if someone showed up in a tube chassis C6 Vette which has all carbon body panels stock, add Light Carbon doors and frontend and the car could easily come in under 2200 lbs with an aluminum 780 with 3 systems on it. Add one of Micke's Turbo 400's and it would run teens all day without effort. Totally legal by todays rules and using stock C6 quarters and roof would be within the "Spirit of the Rules"
My point is that with the rules in place there are plenty of ways to run teens so If this class is meant to keep cost down, rules need to be put in place to do that. Limit power adders, cu in, weight, Chassis type, etc.
What kills classes is payout, we all need to work as hard trying to help the new owners come up with money as we do sitting here debating on why classes fail.
Go to any big money street car race and there is never a shortage of cars that travel from all over to be there. Go to Orlando and see if you see California plates there, I bet you do. There were guys there from Washington cant get much further than that.
We just all need to help to try to get sponsors on board to help the new owners, they have showed plenty of interest now we have to help.
I guess a guy could spend 200k +++++ and build such a car and run 4 teen's for 65% of his entry fee then the next race he would be the only car left ,and the class will get axed again. NMCA and orlando ''pro street'' cars are pro mod cars we have a pro mod class.
Next time your here look at the cars now running pro street then i think you will get it lol
