Scott - that sounds like a good PT car to me as well ;) dyno reclass, add up the points, done. Won't be D anymore duh but should still fit in well. I think the amt of mods STL/U has is still far too wild for my tastes, but I can see the appeal if you're a big time modder and want to deal with that wild an improved jalopy every day at the track.

Yea, I'm tired of spending money to go slower. My freshened motor has turned out to make just a bit too much power to run the weight I think makes for a fun car to drive. As the car sits with no fuel it is 4 pounds under having 39 points, so unless I run it out of gas its perfect. That's also taking 6 points for cam pulleys, so 20 hp is only a few hundred bucks on top of the cubic money and time I now have in this car. It also makes for a car I could double dip into STL on occasion and not be at the back.

I'm about to send in for a re-class with this motor's dyno and a weight range I can realistically make. To stay in D I know I will have to run well over 2500lb, and I'm just not having as much fun in a car that heavy. It looks like C for me for at least the beginning of this year.

Well after sending in my reclass request Greg came back and said my Spitfire with a rotary swap would be PTD +14 points, but after I add in all the other points for stuff it bumps me up to PTB so it looks like I am going to try and give Bob-e here in the southeast division a run for the money. I hope it will be better competition that running in ST3. Its no fun running with guys who have V-8s in the car and just walk away from me. So Bob-e here I come ready or not LOL
The picture below was before I finished out the cage and other stuff to make it race ready to pass tech.

Glad to see you got the Spitfire re classed. It should slot into PTB very nicely.

Thanks Kevin, I am in the process of getting it ready for Daytona. At road atlanta with the synchros going out on the tranny and then the axle broke on the last lap I have to make this thing more reliable LOL. I don't have the gearing for the big tracks but CMP and Roebling I can hang with the best of them LOL. Daytona should be fun

They are kinda fun aren't they LOL. If I could just finish a race without braking an axle it might be more fun. Car is strong on short courses but lacks top speed on tracks like Road Atlanta
