ssanto Posted April 30 Report Share Posted April 30 (edited) I recently came into possession of a free race car. It's an old asphalt late model. The cage is in really good shape. It's got a stock front clip so I should be able to easily convert it back to something that can turn both left and right. Looking over the rules, VPI, engine swap, points, etc... it looks like I can make this work for ChampCar and probably end up maybe 50-100 laps down. I run a car in SCCA GT2 but have always wanted to do ChampCar or Lemons to get a bunch of seat time and have some lower pressure fun with cars. I know this car wouldn't win due to the points penalty, but that's not what this is about for me. Or perhaps I shouldn't worry about the VPI/points and just run it as EC? I just wanted to check if there's anything I'm missing. For example, when I looked closer at the Lemons rule book it's got something about not being able to have your roll cage extend beyond the front/rear axles. So that would disqualify this car for Lemons. Just wanted to see if there's any others who have successfully taken an old tube-frame construction race car to ChampCar. (And before anybody says it... yes, I know, I should go buy a Miata... but that's just not my style ) Thanks, Sal Edited May 2 by ssanto Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
