I dint know that you raced HP. Matt.

I don't and openly stated as such 5 posts up, sir. I'm just trying to offer my input and assistance.

Put the 'disenfranchised' cars in a catch-all class and build 'em how you want. show what they CAN do, then submit results to the CRB and ask for inclusion in the class that fits them best.

same philosophy anywhere else. "cars are on the bench because they can't race in XXXX class" well they CAN race in a different class. bring them out, show the glass house that racers are interested and make the case for your particular request Letter after letter of "I would come out and race if you would only allow ___________", yet few ever show up.

Happy Friday. :)

I see that my letter has been tabled for the Volvo .
Can we please have some sort of template for the progression of 2.0 litre ITB cars into HP ? We dont want over achievers for sure but they should be inside of 1.5percent at max development.

If any new classifications happen, they won't occur any differently than usual. After much research and discussion, if it is believed that a Limited-Prep classification can be made within reasonable and achievable specs, that would allow the the car to race well within the performance realm of the class, then it should be done. The expectation of competitiveness won't be any different than when any other new classification is made. The idea is to get it as close to "right" the first time, given the tools and info we have. Of course no one wants an over-dog, but no one wants a complete dud either. It's also not something that doesn't need to be rushed for any reason.

Rushed no, but snails pace isn't good for HP either. With BSpec growing like crazy there is obviously interest in the slower, less expensive classes. HP definitely needs to be positioned to be an alternative for those potential drivers...

Just to be clear, I'm currently getting flack for not getting 2.0L cars into HP fast enough.

On the prod forum.

I don't even know what planet I'm on anymore.

:lol:

Thanks Kevin .
Not flack tho, more like exploratory shots.
Would it help if I wrote letters for each car?
