  1. OK my wording was a bit wrong. I replied to your post so it sounded like I was picking on you, no so , I was referring to membership in general and again not everyone thinks this way. Over the last few years while talking to others it is apparent that very few want to learn how to make things even to the point of buying fast drivers to win.
  2. I made it bigger to get the benefit of of 10pts . My point is if I really wanted to run the small lip I should be able to claim 7.5pts whatever my reasoning or wisdom.
  3. So your saying it is OK to massively favor teams that have professional drivers. I agree that teams that have access to machine shops that have 100 thousand dollars worth of tools is not home made and that is not fare. I have made 4 trophy winning Grassroots Challenge cars all in my over sized 2 car garage. I purposely got into ChumpCar to use my creative abilities which is my strong point not my driving abilities. This is my garage while building my last Challenge car and the final result. This car was built for less than $2000. The only thing I didn't do was mount and balance the tires.
  4. You are so right, but if I don't put it under a microscope and win I can rest assured that someone that I beat will complain that my interpretation is not the same as the intent. I would rather not be hit by surprises at impound if I can help it.
  5. I agree with you it should not be free. But if there is nothing going back under the car or sticking out in front of the car where is the splitter. So charge as a air dam , ether 10pts or materials. The small lip is not a air dam because it is not from the nose of the car so materials only 7.5pts vs 10pts
  6. Do we believe the tech deck answers or the rules? 9.22. AERODYNAMIC DEVICES 9.22.1. Aerodynamic devices not to exceed width of OE bodywork (fenders, bumpers, doors) when viewed from above. Note: Side mirrors are not included in bodywork width. Maximum wing height 12” above roof. Maximum wing drop-back 12” behind car. A splitter is any horizontal device installed from the centerline of the front axle extending a maximum of 12” out of the front of the vehicle. An air dam is any vertical device installed from the nose of the bumper down. I am referring to air dams and splitters. The rules say from nose of bumper down, neither of these are from the nose down. Top one is close. 2019-11-28 - Front Air Dam Air Dam - 10 points Tech interpretation and enforcement is any non-oem vertical aero component is an air dam. See Photo for Example. Jay Mauney - Chief Tech Director Q2.Is this 1.5" piece of garden edging the same 10 points as 15" piece of plastic or aluminum that wraps around the entire front of a Miata? A2. Yes, any non-oe horizontal component added to the front facia of a car is considered an aero component and the addition of that component is charged 10 points. Tech may charge additional material cost if the component covers an area beyond the parameters of a standard air dam. 2020-10-19 - Air Dam Angle Q. The rules do not currently specify a a tolerance on how "vertical" the air dam must be. Other series (e.g. NASA, SCCA) put this at 5%. Is this currently defined for ChampCar? A. There is no definition on angle. However if you have a scoop type i.e. angled air damn you will get points for both horizontal and vertical at 20 points. Jay Mauney according to rules this is neither air dam or splitter but charged 20pts instead of material.
  7. Thank you Troy, that is the type answer I was looking for. Did your VPI calculator give the same results when applied to a swapped vehicle?
  8. I know that way in the past VPI's were based on an average of what teams actually paid for cars and that set values for the cars. Later $'s became points and now ? .Who picks the VPI for a new car added to the list, and how is it arrived at? There has to be some sort of formula that can be applied across the board to help equalize the starting point.

  10. I'm just a racer like you. I was curious when I looked at the entry list what other cars were in my class so I started building a list, that is when I noticed some numbers were used 3-8 times across the country and some never used that's when I put the list out so anyone who wanted a number all to themselves they would know what is available.
