you so sure about that????? ive been to other meetings....whats voted on and those numbers make NO difference to what really happens......i could be wrong....but like 99.9% of the time, im not....carry on...the 10speed trans wont be in this class at all so kinda funny that it is in the rule...They tried - they wanted into the 6100 truck class and were shot down -
Im not sure about anything anymore Pete - i just like racing my keyboard around the office...Im in second place right now and I am the only one in here....you so sure about that????? ive been to other meetings....whats voted on and those numbers make NO difference to what really happens......i could be wrong....but like 99.9% of the time, im not....carry on...the 10speed trans wont be in this class at all so kinda funny that it is in the rule...
Just doing the engine will still allow the well funded to have an advantage with REAL PARTS as Peteee says. I really thought there would be more spec items. Like every other spec class things will change like class 10 did after we got eco-tec approved. We spent thousands only to have things changed like DI engines , ecu ' s etc. I would wait a season until the smoke clears unless you go Ford as Im sure they will offer big $$$$. Not sure if I like it or not. Hope my kids build one as I would rather go camping and fishing at this time in life lol
I don't think without out doing spec transmission / shock size limit it will really saves much money for Chevy guys. This will be just a bigger Ford class for the payback which is cool because Ford could not compete in class 1 engine $$$$$ wise. Anyone know how much the Turbo engine 10 speed package is from TK
I like the idea but it seems like there should be a transmission limitation like 6100 has to deal with (no underdrive). Ie 5 speed max to clip off the top speed. Maybe a shock diameter limit so those older 1 cars don't need a 30k transaxle and an entirely new shock package to be competitive. Get those old class 1's out of the sheds. There has to be a lot of them out there.
So I'm confuseould need tod? Who is making a 10 speed transaxle? It was said this is the package that Ford wanted in the 6100 class? If that's the case then it's a transmission and that it not going to work for a IRS buggy. Does anyone know what transaxle BITD is talking about?
What I observed at the meeting was Ford asked to allow the raptor motor trans combo into Class 6100. As a result they would put a substantial chunk of prize money into the class for prize money. I think it was 15-20k a race split in top 3 positions. The racers present were not thrilled with the idea due to the transmission combo so most were against it and expressed their concern. BITD could have said screw you - we will do what we want but they didnt and found an area where Ford can put the motor trans into use for the product it wants to market. This is all an assumption on my part just based on the fact that the motor / trans combo is now listed here that was so highly protested in the 6100 meeting.
Make no mistake ever - Casey and Casey alone runs his program based on the way he wants to - he is extremely loyal to all brands, and people that support him.
forsure...when i used it we had "life" computer so the power could be turned up some, but that led to SERIOUS reliability issues......with stock tune it should have plenty of hp for a 3000# car....and if you have a genious to crack the ecu you should be able to get more.....the turbo size and the internal fuel pump LIMIT the hp you can get though.....Pete, you have experience with the EcoBoost, if you were thinking of going into the 1w class (jajaja!), would the Ford contingency money be enough to sway you to run the 3.5L over the LS3?
If you limit the motor there is no need to limit anything else.
