Ok, so how often are you not between 35mph and 72mph? Thats how wide my powerband is. If you have more thrust below 35mph in 2nd gear thats cool, my car handles well enough to never have to go that slow on a national sized course.

^this.

Basically between 34mph and ~65mph Im pretty much traction limited and I have the RPM range to go to 74mph without shifting. With that I can go a fraction quicker than a top level CSP car usually if I can manage to put a good run together.

All I can say to the both of you is show up at an event with Eric, nationals would be great, and prove it since you're in the same class.

How did I get drug into this? I haven't even had my car run for both days of an event yet this year. I'm not a threat to anyone.

I grabbed your paintless monster by the wing and drug it in.

Really I was complimenting you buy saying your car (and mine) was a superior autocross car as far as usable power. But somehow it turned into an implication that it's not superior. Therefor, I threw down the gauntlet for you. Lost my head for a minute. Strip em down and come to XP boys. I can't pass for SSM.

Following year is going to be XP I think. Car is coming off the road and I'm tired of converting it for the track and would like a cage in it anyway.

There is time yet. I'm scrambling to make it to Crows. Just got the car running again tonight. I made some changes to the setup. hopefully I don't screw it up too much.

Yeah, chasing down Fred isn't out of the question down the road sometime. It'd let me put a cage in the car and use it on the track as well.

His car is and my car was registered and tagged for street duty. Makes it easier to get it to alignments and such.

As was mine. I pulled it this year because I can get its actual replacement value on my insurance for $200 a year if the car doesnt get driven on roads and isnt registered, but its still passes inspection. VS the ins co giving me at best 4k for it and paying 450/year.

There is no way an insurance company is going to provide actual replacement value on a race car for $200 a year.

They might give you replacement value on the chassis for that....but there is zero chance of getting actual replacement value on a race car for that little money. Hell, you couldn't get it for that much per month.

The assumed risk drops dramatically when the car is only covered when locked in a garage, on the trailer, parked or driven in paddock, and being loaded and unloaded. Call Hagerty and quote yourself if you dont believe me.

So I can get 50,000+ coverage on a race car for $200 bucks a year. You can't even get that amount of personal property insurance for $200 a year.

There is something in the "fine print" of the policy you aren't reading OR it is simply a rider to your homeowners policy that will only pay if something happens at your house.

If insurance is available that will cover a $50,000+ race car against fire, theft, acts of god...etc etc etc for $200 a year I am quitting my job today and going to work for that company. I will be able to double my income selling only that policy to racers and race teams.
