why 2 classes of mustangs? why not keep fever fours mustangs and make roadrunners front wheel drive only? as a fan it would really make the classes diferrent. maybe it's just me but from the stands if you get 18 cars on the track you dont notice a time difference in the classes.

i know another stupid rule change and bad idea so i'll just shutup now.

thanks for reading Jerry

Back in the day (10 years ago) didn't the fevers run essentially the same rules as the Pro's? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've heard that more than a few times.

Roadrunners used to be about a 50\50 split out of 70 cars. For a while we had probes, escorts, several saturns, civics and cavaliers. There's just a select few left, but then again there are only 20 or so cars left.

In 2009 for example: 3 civics, 2 storms, 3 saturns, sunfire, 2 escorts, probe, 2 cavaliers, 2 colts, subaru, prelude, 2 accords, sentra, stanza, 2 mazdas, grand am... that's all I can think of right now. So 25+ out of 70

Last year we had my probe, 2 escorts, 2 civics, mazda, saturn and a subaru. 8 out of 20ish. They're out there, and it probably wouldn't take long to get em going again.

Wonder what it would take to weaken the rules in the fevers, considering they finished 2011 with 7 cars, 2 of which have moved up this year.

That's fine but there is no reason to punish the rwd cars that is one of if not the biggest reasons for the roadrunner class to have a large scope of cars that can b used. If u say well u built a rwd so ur a fever then that's wrong because now ur limiting the choice and or the wherewithal of alot of racers.most of u use what we have or whatever we can get a hold of if u start limiting cars to this class or that class , the u can expect car count to decline

I dont think the lack of fwd's in Roadrunners has anything to do with any Roadrunner rules. It has to do with personal choice and the fact you can't take a fwd into Fevers. Myself I don't have a problem with fwd's in Fevers. They run fwd's in Outlaw Compacts all the time. Plus it's getting harder to find good Mustangs anymore.

The other problem with puting most of the fwd Roadrunners into Fevers is no fuel injection. I would hate to see someone try to convert a Probe to carburation without a fat bankroll.

No it doesn't have anything to do with rules, I was just telling Bart they make up about 40% of the class. There are many reasons the count went from 70 to 20, but that's on another thread.

I couldn't imagine swapping to carb on either of my roadrunners. I think it'd be cheaper making autocross cars out of them.

the car count was up when there was a claim on them...because you knew the guy you were racing didnt have $3000 into his RR.

bring the car claim back,and watch the class grow.

If you remember the track had a promotors claim and that still didn't stop the BS, because everyone knew that a claim wasn't going to be made........claims don't work except for a certain few that the track seemed to favor..........again all you have to do is enforce the rules and the car count will increase...............as long as the cars are equal and you know that you are competing on an even playing field, that's all that's needed to bring cars back.

New rule book allows FWD fevers! This could get interesting Big Grin

I don't think it takes much to change from fuel injected to carburation... I know of several of the Honda powered cars in the NW Pro 4 alliance with home made intake manifolds to adapt to a holley carb... Or they run Mukuni's... It would be easy to do away with the fuel injection, but there again you would have to modify the carb rule to do it... If your trying to hold the rules equal then it would be opening a can of worms all over again ie: the RR's and RR Pros....

If they strictly enforce the roadrunner rules, I think quite a few of the mustangs will move up.... Maybe even a few FWDs. With so many drivers choosing to run SCR this season it'll be interesting to see what they do in attempt to win the drivers back.

A bigger purse would help. but that is not the issue with car count. Cars left because guys didn't want to compete againt cars that were being allowed to run that didn't conform to the rules and nothing was done about it. Enforce the rules and things will change. Enforcing the rules is not that big of an issue if you have the right set of ....s and stick to your word. Getting rid of a whole class because some of the cars didn't fit the rules, does not fix the problem. If you build a car outside of the written rules then move up to where your car fits. Otherwise quit complaining. Build by the rules and you don't have to worry................Just because a few can't seem to follow the rules, it doesn't seem fair to punish everyone else. Grow a pair..........
