  1. Sub 3k is totally doable on a g body fyi... The vpi list is currently under review due to some discrepancies between it and the swap calculator. I actually thought the swap calculator was taken down until this was resolved. P.s. haven't you been building this car for like 4 or 5 years. Rules are gonna change in that time frame for sure.
  2. Yep. It's happened. Somebody got dq'd last year after getting their stroke checked too. And gahst! It was a bmw! Also, im not sure anybody protested head or vale stuff on the gbu car, therefore no pulling of valve covers. Specifically, everybody had their hands full with what could be seen. I believe champcar is going to do more of this type stuff moving forward.
  3. It's my understanding that the championship is run under the previous years rules minus any safety related changes. If something was a lower value the year before, you claim that lower value. If it was higher, you claim the higher value. Yes, some builds require backdating a bit to get to the previous years rules.
  4. The car needs to follow the platform swap rule for either scenario. #1 is okay, to my knowledge. #2 is not. You would need to run the small tank.
  5. Gotcha. Y'all will have a field day figuring out my car! Trans from a camaro. Engine from a fwd Pontiac. In an rx7... Lolz. Thanks for the clarification. I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything.
  6. I think we are agreeing? Doesn't matter if vin says XYZ in champcar if you are presenting it as an XXX. It better have all the XXX parts. In other words, VIN doesn't matter in champcar, right?
  7. Does this matter anymore? With the platform swap, how would you verify? I'm not sure if I'm being clear, but what if the vin said XYZ and the car was claimed as XXX, but had everything for the XXX model. That's within the rules, correct?
  8. This is what we use. We removed the battery and hooked it up to the kill switch. It starts when the new driver turns on the kill switch after pitting. Same thing. Same idea.
  9. I don't think they are "illegal", just NOT a best practice... Also, the entire system of the cage needs evaluated as a whole. For example, an s bend that is FAR from the driver that also incorporates a straight sill bar is much better than 2 close s bends.
  10. I believe it has some safety concerns. I know there were a few bad wrecks on Shenandoah and the Jefferson circuit. Not sure about main, but that would be a fun track for sure!
  11. Naw, probably the same like Indy. Everybody got their fill the first year. Those that didn't, raced it the next year. Then, it is probably a combination of all of your points above. Rotating yearly between Indy and cota should keep both races well attended in the future.
