These cars look like a blast to run, i'm thinking of getting a car soon, why arent they more popular? Correct me if I am wrong but these cars can be run in SCCA GT2? What other classes could theses cars run in? I am in the Great Lakes region, there aren't many of these types of cars running, again correct me if wrong. What are the running costs for these types of cars? How long do tires and brakes last? Are you looking at more then one set a weekend? Thanks for any help.

I run an ex-Busch North Stock Car out of Western PA and yes they are a blast to drive. Since there is no one to play with in ASC, I run SU in NASA or SPO in SCCA.

PM me if you'd like to chat a bit more offline.

I've wondered this as well as I'm more than a little interested. in NASA, is it SU or TTU only for these types of cars?

Not sure. I ran for years in AI/CMC and after that, decided to simply get into a class that I didn't have to worry about rules, etc. For NASA, that would be SU. For SCCA there are different options but my car easily fits into SPO so I run it there at SCCA events. There is a guy in the Great Lakes Region (ex-CMCer) running a stock truck in SU but that is about it at the moment.

There seems to be alot of interest in the stock cars but people don't seem to pull the trigger. Some of us concluded that someone had to be first and we got a start.

Not sure exactly where you are but this might be interesting:

I only got to run one event last year with them due to breakage and work schedule. I am looking to make the PIRC, Mid Ohio and Watkins Glen events this year.

STR1 or STR3 can cover these cars, depends on how the adjusted hp/weight math works out. SU also works of course.

In the Rocky Mountain Region we have 12 www.arrs.us cars, this is in our second year ... So I think the growth has been great.

We have tried to focus on safety , cost and FUN (in that order) . I can get up to 3 weekends on a set of tires but they lose quite a bit of speed after one weekend.

Last year my running costs were very low . fuel was number 1 by a factor of 3 .

Good chance we will have a Texas chapter of ARRS by the end of 2013.

If you have any questions about www.arrs.us I would be happy to talk about it .
