  1. I've never been before but I hear its a cool event. A buddy of mine is trying to talk me into going to Pittsburgh for the weekend of the 7th-8th for the Vintage Grand Prix at the Pitt race complex, but I don't think I'll be able to push off another weekend of much needed car repairs for "fun stuff" ; ) If any other chump guys were going with cool cars, I may be persuaded enough to make the drive down there...

    Mazda Miata lightened flywheel points?

    My lips are sealed 😜

    Hey Alchamey, No worries, I'm just getting into the forum Banter because it's fun ; ) I don't take it that way, this series seems fantastic. I raced in Lemons for a few years and it drove me nuts. In the process of prepping for a new Chump build (the Lemons vehicle is a turd not worth updating to Champ). I've been to some champ races as a spectator but have yet to drive in one.

    Guys, this is so easy, just weld your diffs! If you weld the ring and pinion also though, is that another 25 points? 😂 Disclaimer, I welded the diff on my Lemons race truck. Rain = tail happy unpredictable nightmare

    Yah, I agree with you, I think I worded it poorly. I kind of want free oil coolers, haha but I also agree with reliability=winning so I'm fighting myself ; )

    Gotcha, makes sense then. Just watch out for the hordes who are going to come after you for reliability in endurance racing=winning. That potentially free flywheel will turn into a points adder real quick.

    I'm just going to build an F150 then with 30+ gallons and a million different gear ratios available for all the haters. I need to find some 335 width tires to support this beast now, dang it...

    Exactly, swap to that ratio available on the Mexican 1.8L neons and people would crucify you. A double standard some people have...

    Haha true, but I have some ideas up my sleeve on my next build. Not every V8 car need to be heavy, or a car at all 😎

    The problem is at tracks like Daytona or road America, having to shift to 5th and Bog or stay in 4th at peak HP at 140 MPH is a big advantage IMO. Again, I'm also just playing devils advocate also and stating my understanding of the rules. I hope you're right, I have some sweet powertrain concotions on deck! But, when you take a 75 point hit for having a manual/auto car, I think the options associated with that trans should come with it. My 2 cents.

    I see what you are saying, but a gear ratio swap to a ratio not available on a manual trans car is just as much of a performance advantage as an LSD swap. Don't get me wrong, I hope you're right and I can start swapping gear ratios and build some kick azz unicorn stuff. That's just not how I read the rules. My 2 cents.

    Cherry picking auto vs manual specific parts etc. Opens up a huge can of worms. This may come off as sounding like a dick to some people, but please, don't take it that way. But, there are cars in this world besides E30s! You guys are going to open Pandoras box and it's going to hurt you when us V8 guys start swapping auto only 3.73 ratio LSD diffs for free into our 3.08 only manual trans cars for no points.

    Sorry, this is flawed ruling then. Every car on the VPI list assumes a manual, auto is then a 75 point deduction. So I'll just start swapping auto only diffs into my V8 American muscle and waste everything on track in my manual trans car.

    I wouldn't trust a parts website if my life depended on it. Look up the diff ratios to buy parts for a first gen CTS from a GM dealer, which you could assume should be reasonably correct, right? It will show you the diffs and ratios for A 2.8, 3.6, V series, AWD SRX SUV, the Pontiac Solstice, etc. all as fitting each other. 3.23, 3.42, 3.73, 3.93, 3.08, 2.73. It's crazy out there...
