hray Posted September 1, 2006 Report Share Posted September 1, 2006 I want to throw out an idea. What if we started a dirt road race series that raced in the winter months (say October - March)? Here's my idea: We build a 1.5 to 2.0 mile track in the San Antonio/Austin area. It would be a road race track with maybe 10 - 12 turns following the lay of the land. The cars would be "spec cars". All the chassis and suspensions would be the same, but driver could choose spring/shock combinations and could build his own motor to a motor rule(360 CID), 9" rear, auto or manual etc. Bodies would be modified type and tire would be a good dirt type like the sport mod 500 tire. Cars would have 2 seats for a navigator/passenger. Target would be to be able to build a complete car with all new parts for $12,000 - $15,000; less using some used parts. Again, I'm floating this to see if there is any interest. If there is, we'll probably build a prototype this winter and run it on some SCCA courses to test the concept. I don't know if this is a vision or a nightmare. I may be loosing my mind! Rusty Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
