complete bs about finding stock drums try CIPI 1 or Pacific customs or many other vw sources they all stock drums.
Nope it's BS, fenders and hoods are not hard to find at all, not only are original components easy to find, but so are re-production steel components. When you have a low horsepower car, weight is a GIANT advantage, how much do you think is being saved by replacing all of the fenders and hoods with fiberglass? That's a huge advantage.I'm sorry, but its not bull sh-t, yes disc brakes, Its almost impossible to fine the good drums any more.and the class wanted it. Yes its a stock class, but if there are going to race they have to be able to stop. Read the rule on wheels the aftermarket wheel they use is a copy of a stock one, you couldn't tell the difference just by looking, were also letting them use glass fenders, hood and deck lip. once have to look just like the stock ones. and once again there are getting harder to fined the good stock ones.
Well, you re correct, but the fix is not to complain about it, but to ask Dan to fix the rule book so it says 'Any STEEL Wheel 15"x4.5" is legal so that aluminum does not show up. Just the like the rule for CVs should be 'Any VW type 1, 2, or 4 CV is allowed' rather than any VW CV. That way, you won't see 930s running on an 11 car. In fact, Dan, I would LOVE to help you clean that thing up.Nope it's BS, fenders and hoods are not hard to find at all, not only are original components easy to find, but so are re-production steel components.

Wheels are not hard to find either. Regarding your comment about the copy of the steel wheels, that's all find an dandy, but your new rule states "any" wheel, so what would keep someone from running a light aluminum wheel? Does the rule state it must be steel?
I don't think it's official yet, but we've been talking about it at BOR. Our 9 car counts are the most consistent out of any of the "classic" (non UTV) classes because it's pretty cheap to get into. I think anything that can be done to keep it as affordable as possible is good, and when guys are breaking transaxles multiple times/year because they can't find good parts that fit within the current rules and local (Utah) swingaxle rebuilding is a shrinking market, it seems to make sense.My local Vorra series say they're sticking to swing axle but with Score and Bor switching I'm starting to stock-pile parts for upgrading in the near future
besides the point, you guys have been saying parts are hard to find since the 90s.Uh, Dave, just like your view of ease of parts availability is stuck in the 1990s, so is your car most sold view. It is actually the Toyota Corolla that is the most sold car of all time. Yeah, it used to be bug... Back in the 1990s...
The VW Euro-van runs a 108mm CV which is 32 mm wide and the inner you can use feel free to buy and axle and test it. I only know as we looked at using them on the Subarugears Conversions when we were looking to reduce axle width to compensate for width of transmission . I could not get a real answer so I bought and axle and pulled it apart. Ended up going 930 due to availability and cot of parts and getting custom axles made.Dave, please give the vehicle model so I can use this. Thanks.
