  1. Tires and brake pads and rotors budget one race. Fuel will be car dependant, what engine are you running?

    It is still there, had another one offered to me, I guess some non-BMW types feel sorry for me.

    You're right, I was going way overboard there... I wonder how many points a 347 stroker kit is?

    Yeah, I need to get the VPI weight increased so I can swap in at least a 351, I hear they can use up the fuel at a pretty good rate. Good thing I would be running a 9/10ths scale car to offset the extra fuel load.

    All these problems keep cropping up, well in goes ANOTHER 2 gallons, what am I going to do with all of this fuel????????????

    Yes at one point I was thinking I don't even need to swap body parts. Platform swap exactly as per the rules: Engine - check Transmission - check Differential - check Suspension - check Fuel tank - well, OK if I have to, just to follow the rules! Walks out to garage, looks at Mustang, blinks, now it is magically a TBird as soon I swap in the big fuel tank. Done deal and I am just following the rules, oh also have to take 25 points to swap in the manual transmission that is already installed. @enginerd is hereby petitioning to increase the VPI of a vehicle that has not won a race nor podiumed since, what, 2015? Oh, also just to clarify, if an E30 is running a 4 cylinder then it must have the small tank and only if it is running a 6 can it have the big fuel tank? I was not aware of that.
  7. You are so far down on the list that you need to start your own list.

    @enginerd - wheelbase needs to match - based on what rule? @Racer7x - must match VIN - based on what rule? @JDChristianson - must be indistinguishable from 20 feet - based on what rule? Gee I don't know if I can tell the difference between this: and this: Keep making up rules till you find one that sticks to maintain your fuel superiority.

    Whatever is right. BMW can swap gas tanks because it is within the platform. Ford can't swap gas tanks because it is within a platform.

    I hear blown wheel hubs are pretty dangerous. Besides, I am not chopping the frame, only proposing a re-body no different than a team adding aero.

    Should probably get rid of aero too, also run stock width tires. I'm good, the Cobra came with 245's

    Cam: It is just for certain brands - see BMW. Enginerd: it is only a platform swap for BMW. It does not apply to the Fox platform. Wittenauer: I did ask Mike about doing a rebody of our Mustang into a TBird and he said he would re-write the rules to prevent the largest protest in the history of ChampCar, or something to that effect. JD: there is no rule preventing a shortened wheelbase TBird. A shortened Crown Vic has run in the series. By the rules mounting front quarters, front and rear bumper, doors, and hood from a TBird onto our Mustang would easily meet the 60% requirement. I have specifically been told it is not going to fly.
  13. This discussion regarding fuel can take place in the fuel thread. For clarity I reread the whole thread and most of the “maybe” want points assigned for anything above the stock capacity. I am not opposed to the idea.

    I put the stickers from non-sponsor parts on my garage wall.
