Maybe we could get a manufacturer sponsor the class with a new about the same power output? worth a shot if the motor was under 4 grand to the racer.
It's changed just too slow to keep the interest of racers.. So I'm stirring the pot again....this is a unlimited class with super minimal rules. that's not likely going to change. if you want to raise car counts and have a lower cost option give vw based cars a bigger rule advantage then they have currently. there's probably 1000's of outdated nice vw based super buggies out there. as a fan of the class i would love to see something other than alumicrafts on the podium.
this is the type of thinking that sparks ideas like running the ecotec. good luck finding your manufacturer sugar daddy. a $4000 engine rule...you can spend more on a lightbuggy engine. now that i think of it if you order a type 1 super buggy engine from fat performance is it any cheaper than a ecotec from redline? maybe you could put a electric motor inside a dummy vw engine. that would cost only $4000 then all you need your sugar daddy to do is buy a $3000 prius battery.Maybe we could get a manufacturer sponsor the class with a new about the same power output? worth a shot if the motor was under 4 grand to the racer.
yes DI = direct injection.You all can bring you high dollar DI Ecotec and this 2.0 VW will do just fine ----
