What are the specs of a competitive two-seat Class 12 car?
Let's assume it's a coil-over car (front & rear) with a Mendeola 5-speed and a 140hp 1835 Type I.

Wheelbase?
Weight?
Front travel?
Rear travel?

Front Suspension
-----------------------
Front beam...8" wider? More?
Front arms...4" longer?
Front hubs/disks...CNC or Summers?
Front shocks set-up...single or dual shocks?...bypass?....2.0s? 2.5s? 3.0s?

Rear Suspension
----------------------
Rear arms...how much longer & wider?
Rear hubs/disks....Summers floaters?
930 or 934 cvs?
Rear shocks set-up....single or dual shocks?...bypass?...2.0s? 2.5s? 3.0s?

Misc
-------
What size wheels? 16"?
What size tires for front & rear?
What size fuel cell?
What's the typical gas mileage?
Is there a chassis (jimco, lothringer, mirage, raceco, etc) that seems to have an advantage in the class?
What else is important?

There's a layout of Jerry Penhall's new class 12 in this months Hot VW's that can provide you with some additional info.
