  1. I'd assume the big benefit possibly being TC?
  2. Sean, both your cars are running megasquirt and have been fine tuned on a dyno, which does make a difference and cost more than some teams are willing to shell out to get to the next level, but that's were the series has gone with free performance parts...
  3. Dyno time is free points but not free dinero😊
  4. $1K barrels of race fuel should not be needed to field a car in this series... When that started happening the series management should of taken notice to reign things back in... Cars that need racing fuel to operate should be running in ec...
  5. Reasonably priced Centric high carbon rotors holds up very well...
  6. Would that one fall under "we didn't choose your platform" logic? It "is what it is" now, it just upped the monetary investment to try to keep up with the Jones's at the pointy end of the field now relating to this topic... I do see $800 barrels of race fuel as something that should be looked at again...
  7. I had no problem with oem ecu's being open for "0 points", the opening up of "free" standalones in general was the problem... Did the series grassroots, racing on the "cheap" philosophy include Haltechs, MoTecs, AEM's and MS3 Pro's to get to the pointy end of the field?
  8. Or at least look at making them 50pts instead in lieu of running 50pts of full car aero? I know the pitchforks are going to be coming my way again by the standalone teams like they did 2 years ago...
  9. It was a big jump overnight for the series going from $500 cars to "free point" standalones a few years back and a lot of teams running on the pointy end of the field now have taken advantage of it... BTW, I did yell from the tallest church steeple I could find when I joined the series at that time that I thought that one change wasn't in keeping with the philosophy of the series and it was downplayed by the series management and fellow members on this forum who had their own car prep agendas...
  10. The only wrong move I think the series made in regards to speed leap in the last two years was making standalones a legal and free item... That one definitely opened up a pandoras box as far as the race fuel and internal engine mods some teams have taken advantage of with them...
  11. Most of the recent front runners and ftd cars are running standalones with time on a dyno for maximum hp and fuel mileage... That's were a lot of the recent speed creep has come from along with aero, better tires and brakes and better overall driver talent and the lowered points value for alot of the vpi points parts...
  12. Your not going to be able to show up with a car with stock shocks and wheels and place in the pointy end of the field is a given now... Do you need to spend $20K on a new build to be competitive? No... But to be competitve you'll need to budget for at least $10K... You'll also need to have a group of fairly quick and competitive drivers to get you to the pointy end of the field also... There is a pretty big lap time margin between the drivers/teams wanting to compete and the ones with limited track experience and just wanting to have fun...
  13. And since I've finally come out of the closet, here's the other track car in the garage besides the new build e46... '13 gixxer 750, 155hp, 8 injector guhl flashed motor in a 600lb Stallard dirt minisprint... Brian
