    Class 5 only

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I have followed this thread from the very 1st comment. You say the word on a motor change and we are in. I also believe there are a few others in the same boat.

    Class 5 only

    Wheezy, you might lack some people skillz but you are my heroe! You never quit. I have followed this thread and have made a few comments in favor of the ecotec. They all got shot down pretty quickly. I am one of the few who started building my 5u when the rules "by mistake" allowed the sealed...

    Class 5 only

    No one on here is trying to kill the class. All that is going on are people tossing around ideas on how to make the class bigger because we love it. Some people have gotten out of racing the class because they can't afford to race it anymore. The main expense on the 5's is the motor. There for...

    Class 5 only

    \m/^^^^^\m/ 100% agree! It wont hurt anything by giving it a couple year trial. It will only bring competition!

    Class 5 only

    In my opinion and my opinion only: if you let an "underporwered" ecotec run in class 5, you wouldn't have to go and try to find competition with combining class 3000 and class 5. With the rule change and with that rule change only, it would bring smaller budget race teams to the track. You can...

    Class 5 only

    I don't know if you read my previous quote but some of us did build our cars based on the rules and then they were changed. My plans are to run a stock seeled or tagged Ecotec motor. Even you just said a type 4 would run away from that, so what's the problem? I'm not trying to call you out or be...

    Class 5 only

    It seemed like BITD had that change of rules only for 2011. During 2011 we bought our Ecotec thinking it was legal. Some say a miss print, who knows. We made many phone calls and typed lots of emails back and forth to BITD asking if the any 4 cyl. Motor would b ok, and they said yes. That's...

    Class 5 only

    . I agree! To answer your question, the only thing on my car that isn't aftermarket is the gearshift lever.

    Class 5 only

    I just don't get why people are apposed to letting the ecotecs run with the air cooled motors. I just don't get it. Some guys say they would rather run the type 4s anyway, so let them. The sport is always evolving. Look at how many other classes have changed rules to up entries. In my...

    Class 5 only

    I'm excited people are talking about class 5. This forum has inspired me to sign up and talk with you guys. As for what has been posted I agree and disagree with all the points that have been made. I'm 25 (with no ball and chain) and have been throwing every bit of cash I make into my money hole...

    Class 5 only

    This thread inspired me join up and post. I can agree and disagree with every argument that all of you have posted. I love class five as much or even more so then the next guy. The reason for my post is just to let you guys know I have spent the last two and a half years building a class 5 car...
