  2. Thank you!!! I don’t know how/why “IRS swap” was added in the first place but appreciate you guys correcting it. There was no need to add this in when a value already existed in the form of “add up the non-OE parts that go into it”.

  3. This is my cell shell in an MX3. Fully sealed and gasketted with the functionality of a hatch maintained.

  4. Aren't heads 100 pts? Intake 50 pts. Cam 50 points, plus the 53pts for a swap. That's 253 pts to make 300 hp. Seems about right to me if somebody wants to spend that many points on just the engine? Probably need a new trans to support that engine. 25 pts. Need a new rear end to support that horsepower 25 pts... Now at a total of 378 pts (starting vpi of 75 pts). 14.5 gallons of fuel (16.5 with a fuel cell). Will probably only make 1.5 hours. Sounds like a fun car!

  5. Ah, thanks. Ok, then in that case - let's focus on the output. Anybody can easily make more than 300 hp with a "134 hp" 70's 302 (with H/C/I/E). In the case of the Opel, I could pull out the Gen III SBC truck motor @ 17,000 points, put in the "134 hp" 302, and my VPI would be... 128 points. I can then add H/C/I (exhaust is in the swap points) and still have plenty of points to cover all the aero and suspension swap stuff and race Non-EC. Basically, my car would be no slower than it is now, probably faster actually with that H/C/I 302 setup, and I would lose 17,000 point

  6. Heh, about 17,000 points. It is a by product of the swap calculator when you start with a wildly underpowered car, and swap in a marginally high powered platform (while still completely outgunned by the GBU SBC from the video I have seen). Opel GT, with 255 hp engine...

  7. It seems the accusump is still not encased. Edit: I believe the point of the rule is to have an all metal bulkhead between any flammable liquids and the driver.

  8. With enough penalty laps it won't matter. We won't ban them because they are fast. That's just petty. But we can even the playing field by starting them with more laps in penalty.

  9. FYI the car ran out of gas at 1 hour 50 minutes at NL. Had to take a 5 minute pit with 10 minutes left in the race.

  10. I am going to disagree. They have 200 points to play with, 50 of which are for the rear susp swap. I think with 150 (or 200 if they want to take 5 laps)) they can easily field a 300hp version of that car. As long as they have enough power to pass people on straights, and the ability to use the same tires, in the same quantity they have last couple of races, this car will be faster than the field, by a good margin.

  11. That’s rather optimistic! I think high 2:48 may be possible... the CRX ran 2:47.1 and has better braking and handling (no doubt due to the aero). Can’t wait to get the BMW out to Road America in April.

  12. Watching the car run all weekend it is fast.......really fast. It walked away from the other newer vettes which are the top runners in the other series. Do we think that shows a problem with the values assigned and teched. I asked about motor internals and was told no one knows????? I was told it was just run on the dyno so maybe someone knows to P/W ratio.
