  1. When night fell on the big course at Utah it was neat watching the SoA Mustang pass and put significant time on the 911. SoA had one of the track instructors in their car while it was obviously an inexperienced person in the 911.
  2. What on earth were they thinking letting in a car like that? Oh wait, ChampCar did that too, so I guess it is OK then.
  3. The Happy Moose is not a $100k build. Randy doesn't haul his car out west for LD races, he just hops in any car that wants his advice. Cool story about Randy and how much he loves racing: I told my team he was showing up for the Utah race. Just as we were arriving on the turn-off road to the entrance there was a guy who had hopped out of his mini-van to take a picture of the entrance sign. I said I was pretty sure it was Randy, everybody else said no way Randy had probably been here hundreds of times, it is probably just some dude at his very first race. We pulled in to the li
  4. All good Jer except the $100k builds. I disagree with that and your other comment a while back that many in LD were up in arms with the series tire - I believe both are incorrect statements. I have not seen any discontent with the RS-4. The series intent is to stay for the amateur and not the big dollar builds. If you come with a GBU build and blow everyone out of the water you are racing yourself in SD class no matter how respectful you are on track or how you initially qualified (sandbagged). Not trying to promote anything but the truth, I wish Champ continued success as well
  5. SD always has been for cars that don't comply. It is also for cars deemed to fast for the series, real time, during the race - I have seen several cars moved from A class to SD during the race. Initially a classed car but then when lap times are reviewed a change of class just like you received.
  6. I don't know that they have had to park anyone as per that rule, more typically they are just booted from the class to superdog (similar to Champ EC). It is done real time during the race.
  7. In CC for the unchosen it only takes leading the field by half a lap after several hours of racing to get hit with a 100 point penalty. It also only takes some wins with a small margin in a Cobra to get hit with points, or in the case of the Mustang GT no wins despite many attempts in numerous years to get hit with more points. In LD if you have a clearly superior car they will be having a conversation only with the clearly superior team, all other teams with the similar car but not superior performance do not get penalized. So the conclusion is what all of the unchosen
  8. That is a little racy for here... darn that typo, makes sense either way though.
  9. I’m good. Clearly you are not familiar with the Fox platform.
  10. Elite Belts here in Calgary will sew a custom SFI net for you, Canadian prices. I'm sure someone in the states could as well. Our original stock size was no longer made so for a similar price she sewed a custom one for me and she can also inspect and recertify her old net as an authorized SFI dealer so if in good shape you only need a new net every four years.
  11. Still waiting for you to show me where the floorpan rule exists in the BCCR and why the rule applies to my finished product but not yours. If it isn't in the BCCR I'm looking forward to seeing that wording along with a wheelbase requirement in a petition from you and enginerd. As well, where does one source blueprints for floorpans?
  12. I will let you know when I am going to show up to a race and you can fly out with your tape measure, micrometer, and blue prints from Ford. What’s next, do I have to drive through a profile template and be within 1/8” everywhere then go park next to the legal Parts Badger Miata? Hahaha. Looks like you and Drew better get working on that wheelbase petition - or make up more stuff not in the rules.
  13. Right, read it many times and I don't think it has changed. Added matching wheelbase and floorpan requirements are NOT in the rule and just recently made up depending on what kind of car it is for. Saying it is perfectly fine to vertically section one car (altering both wheelbase and floorpan) while another must meet stock wheelbase and floorpan dimensions is just the usual bias depending on what car you are talking about in a rulebook that is supposedly applied equally to all cars. Makes perfect sense to someone.
  14. Excellent, now we are getting somewhere with further rule clarification. Again, please point to me where in the rulebook it states that teams must show up to races with floorpan blueprints and how would I go about acquiring that from Ford? I would like to reference that along with the wheelbase rule that you have yet to point out to me. I would like to add the wheelbase as as Point #6 and floorpan as point #7 in the above justification. Please do not tell me you are making up random rules, surely you are one of the ones most familiar with the rulebook.
  15. It is almost as if the series is trying to write out the Fox chassis, outlaw Mustangs and TBirds. I AM NOT TRYING TO BRING THE TBIRD INTO THE SERIES, you already allow it. Why don’t you just raise them all to 600 points and be done with it FFS?
