  1. I live in northern Arizona around Prescott Valley, and I just found out about this ChumpCar stuff and it sounds like something I really want to get involved in. Is there anyone in Arizona that are ChumpCar racers or teams that a new guy could set up a meet and pick your brain about?
  2. Several questions were asked in a thread that was not in the tech section. This is for Gen 1 Dodge\Plymouth neon, 95 to 99. Re posting that information here to help any team interested in running these cars. They can be great cars for teams on a budget, many ex scca IT cars exist and there was once a class specifically for these cars (Spec Neon). Many of these former race cars exist, most with the desirable parts like the SDK option already on them. They lack the fuel capacity of many of the more popular 80's cars and require a motor swap to be reasonable competitive (or turbo). They have hub\bearing issues that need to be addressed or monitored. The engines require attention to detail and some basic mods to be reliable at higher duty cycle in DOHC form. Unless you are a really good car builder, they will be more difficult to push to the front than a BMW (e30/e36). The cost of operation can be much lower and replacement\repair of the chassis is much easier; I have owned several parts cars with $350 being the most I have paid for a driving parts car. So if you are a new team looking for a cheap car, or have a Neon and are looking for basic advise on how to field one, here you go: If you have more questions on a particular area please chime in. Hopefully some of the other car makes will release similar info to at least get new teams up to mid pack speed.
  3. Hello all, My name is Tommy Carothers from Ethos Motorsport. We are a startup team in the process of building a car. We have 2 drivers and 1 mechanic. We are looking for like-minded drivers or crew who want to share the team, car, DRIVING TIME and financial responsibilities equally. (You may even take the car to your own events if you so choose (With everyone in agreement) I have wheel to wheel and rally racing experience and dont mind teaching a newcomer through simulation or physical track time. We have a trailer and truck. To apply you must first meet these requirements: Be able to pay your equal share of racing costs Willing to learn and be "Ego-Less" in your training approach Be chill, we just really want seat time for the 2018 season which we are looking at as a R&D season. Be willing to help build the car. (Ill buy the beer and pizza, unless you are underage of course.) Not just looking for "Arriving and Driving" A shop or place to work on the car in the North Carolina area is a plus as we are working out of a apartment parking lot at this time. Everyone on board so far is paying equal parts. We plan on running any number of races (From one to all) on the east coast. If you think you meet the above requirements fill out form below: https://goo.gl/forms/pCbKpUdWQP0EKwWL2
  4. Anyone interested in starting a team in SE Minnesota? I live in Rochester MN, and have noticed a distinct lack of teams in the general surrounding area. I think it's time to fix that. Who's interested in helping me fix such a tradgedy? Looking forward to hearing from you guys, Joseph B.
  5. I am new to this whole cheap...ish...racing thing and am looking into both ChumpCar World Series and LeMons racing, but I live in AZ, and most my friends that are willing to drive and join my team still live in CA and I travel for work (Construction), so it makes it hard for everyone to get a decent amount of seat time in the race car, and deciding on a central race to ease traveling costs on everyone also seems like it will be a hassle... so I was wondering are there any race clubs or series that are on the cheaper side like ChumpCar and LeMons that are not endurance races? that a solo or two driver teams can do? any cheap car rally cross or rally series? I am hooked on this ChumpCar World Series but not so sure my mates are and I would like to get all in on racing. Thank you for taking the time to read this post and for any and all advice given. Ronnie
  6. Hey everyone I'm Ron, I just found out about this thing called ChumpCar and LeMons racing 2 days ago, at age 35 and loving to drive cars fast you would think I would have found this by now but you know... Anyways I am looking to get my first Chumper and start building her up in hopes to spin her tires around the track for the first time in 2018 (Is a year - year and a half reasonable for a first time build?) I am on here today asking for advice on what is a good car to start with, though I know many have their own personal preferences on make and models, or engine size and weight, I am looking to get a more overall picture of what cars are easy to work on and build. Honda civics are a dime a dozen with an endless about of parts and after market upgrades and they are pretty easy to work on, but is it better to go for one that runs good from the start with a higher liter engine staring me at a higher VPI like a Ford Mustang needing little to no upgrades, or a car that runs good but has a small liter engine starting me with a lower VPI, leaving room for more up grades like a Toyota Tercel? As far as the build itself goes, I went school for a general bumper to bumper exp. we worked on everything except transmissions (Though it was the biggest section in the 600+ page curriculum), I tore 4 cylinder/ V-6/ V-8 engines down as far as possible and put them completely back together every day for a good month (The engines never got started so I am a little nervous about timing belts/ chains) we studied and removed and replace everything (Non- Body) on the cars from tires to ball joints, drum and disk breaks, tie rods, shocks, struts, coil overs, you name it. After I graduated, I worked at a Midas in Santa Clarita, California for a couple years where again I did so much more than just oil changes, tires and alignments, I replaced more valve covers and oil pans than I can counts, I have spent more time upside down in the driver seat of a car chasing electrical issues and brake switches, I have dropped a number of transmissions (Midas shipped them to trans shops to be re-built) and I have continued to work on my cars and trucks even after I left Midas. so overall I feel confidant to build my first Chumper myself and with the help of my gear head friends, and the few things I can't do I will take to a shop if they need to be fixed like a transmission. ok enough rambling from me below are some questions I have after looking into this for only two days, I want to thank everyone for taking the time to read this, and for any help that is offered up, I look forward to this journey and am excited about taking the first steps today. I am budgeting $5000.00 for this build (Just the build, not racing fees or gear) is that a good amount or is that too low? Once I have a car, what upgrades are worth spending the extra points? (exhaust, headers, ecu...) What upgrades are not worth spending points on? (adjustable coil overs, sway bars...) Do any weight reductions cost point? (I didn't see anything in section 4 of the rules about weight reduction, but i only read through it once) What are good things to remove from a car to reduce the weight? Automatic or Manuel Transmission? everyone was a first time racer, or built their first car, or put their first team together, what were the things you found difficult your first few times out? what things were simple? What things caught you off guard? Any other advice a first timer should know or consider? p.s. sorry if this is hard to read, English and Grammar were not my strong suits in school...
  7. Hello! I'm Ted Hough, ex-pro driver currently taking a few gap years from racing to go get an education, however, I would love to be involved in a series like Chump-Car to stay sharp and have some fun! Attached to the topic will be a copy of my current racing resume if you're interested in more details or seeing how much experience I have at which tracks. I should also note that all my licenses are current and I have personal equipment ready for racing at a moments notice. (Current and approved Safety gear, HANS device, current spec Suit/Helmet/Gloves/Underwear etc.) I would love to do any races, especially in the mid-west (I am located in southern Minnesota, so I am available for races such as BIR and Road America.) BIR would be a particularly good choice for me, since I earned my competition license at BIR and have more experience there than at any other circuit. Circuit experience list (Also in PDF): Road America, BIR, VIR, COTA, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Homestead Miami Speedway (Road course), DCTC PDX course. Also experienced on nearly two dozen various Dirt and Asphalt ovals. (More details in available documents) I hope you have a good day, and look forward to meeting/racing with anybody interested! 2016 Ted Hough race resume April.pdf 2017 Ted Hough non-race resume v2Jan (1).pdf Edit Note: Video Reals are being edited and posted up now, I have poor internet so they will take a while, but there should be demo reals hosted on my Youtube page within the next 48 hours. Mostly On-board helmet cams from a B-Spec race at Road America, I hope they're too your liking once they're up.
