    nice!! Keeping it swing axle or going irs?

    Stock bug class rules for the MORE series requires stock susp. for year of car.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Does he have to use a split case trans and 36hp too, or can drivetrain deviate from stock?

    Nah, that would be a deal breaker. 1600cc and 4.37 or 4.12 transaxle with stock 1st and 2nd gears.

    Here is a link to the SCORE 2020 rules which set the precedents for most off-road racing.

    The major difference I see from 2018 rules are the use of β€œfactory disc brakes”, rear frame horn gusseting, and fiberglass fenders/hoods….which have not been added the to the MORE/Empi triple crown guidelines

    I am healthy! Just have to wait out this quarantine to make sure I’m no longer infectious! Just a few more days and I’ll be back at it🀞🏼

    I think adding disc brakes to the rules is dumb! Defeats the purpose of a stock beetle!

    I think that rule addition is for guys using late-late model stuff that came with front disc brakes. β€œFactory” never had rear discs, and that’s where the advantage would be for changing parts.

    They can keep all their late model stuff…Β  Β and them dumb rubber bumpers… 😎  I’m gonna keep it real, and pin it to win it… 😎  😎  Β I wonder if they want me to ru over riders??Β  It does call them out,,” As delivered to america”… which should outlaw them rubber bumpers!!!!Β  But it does not say I can not modify them!!!!

    I want the least I can get away with and race… the least cage the least brakes the oldest suspension geometry, the least safety equipment, I wanna run a smoothie front and tire as a spare!!!! on a sand rail rim thats light as fuck.. and who gives two shits about comforts… I want light weight!!! I can relax when we get back to the pamper!! and speaking of!!! I really really really want to tow my race car with my bus!!! I am thinking my sand rail trailer might be able to work………Β  , …. 😎  😎  😎  Light is right, and I need to see about how we can get an 80hP 1600…. I heard the exists!!! 😎  😎  😎

    Anyway,,,,heading inside for some home made chimichangas and watching Old KCW video’s,Β  see which one Audrey Posts up tomorrow… We just watched the BBB trip from this year… and made me tear up seeing sammy!!!!Β  😎  😎  Audrey and Zack, as you may have already noticed, have said they both want to help expand our online presence… Get back into some of the cool guy stuff, and well document our racing program…. 😎  😎  Were gonna need sponsors!!! and I see the triple crown flyer say’s you could win $30K!!!!

    I’m not 100% on what I am going to do just yet… luckily I don’t have to do much planning around work or family.. 😎  I just gotta decide what I want to do…. 😎

    Doing nothing is the easiest thing.. cheapest thing and most boring thing. 😎  No one seems interested in that though… 😎  😎  😎

    The original owner passed away in early 80s and the car got parked at his kids place. The wife of a friend of mine worked with one of the kids and the car was parked at their house for years. The kids didn’t want to put any money into itΒ  and were not interested in providing a title or paper work to get one and their intent toΒ  sell and my offer to buy were all done through my friends wife as was their acceptance and my payment. I had a phone number for them, but at that time I had thirty other projects and it was a year before I tried to reach them at which time the number had been disconnected.Β  By then my friends were no longer in touch with them and I was never able to track them down.

    We have a finite amount of time (and fossil fuels) on this planet to enjoy these machines how they are meant to be enjoyed, an oval class 11 car will be both parts awesome and upsetting for the purists. I love it. KCW out there having fun while other peoples stuff collects dust!!! Rally car dust! 😈

    Keep all us lurkers posted. I am going to brave the cold; meet you in Ely, and then follow to Spencer for your overnite. Since there’s no BBB it will be my winter get-a-way camp trip. If that don’t happen, maybe I could come to KCW and help for a week close to crunch time.
