Does he have to use a split case trans and 36hp too, or can drivetrain deviate from stock?Audrey JonesModeratorDecember 27, 2020 at 11:18 amPost count: 809

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 “factory disc brakes”, rear frame horn gusseting, and fiberglass fenders/hoods….which have not been added the to the MORE/Empi triple crown guidelinesJohn JonesModeratorDecember 27, 2020 at 1:05 pmPost count: 8861
I wanna be at the first triple crown race Feb 20th!!!!! So COLE!!!! Get healthy!!!!! 😎 😎 😎John JonesModeratorDecember 27, 2020 at 1:07 pmPost count: 8861

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!FranzModeratorDecember 27, 2020 at 1:43 pmPost count: 4592
I think that rule addition is for guys using late-late model stuff that came with front disc brakes. “Factory” never had rear discs, and that’s where the advantage would be for changing parts.John JonesModeratorDecember 27, 2020 at 3:59 pmPost count: 8861
They can keep all their late model stuff… and them dumb rubber bumpers… 😎 I’m gonna keep it real, and pin it to win it… 😎 😎 I wonder if they want me to ru over riders?? It does call them out,,” As delivered to america”… which should outlaw them rubber bumpers!!!! 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……… , …. 😎 😎 😎 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, see which one Audrey Posts up tomorrow… We just watched the BBB trip from this year… and made me tear up seeing sammy!!!! 😎 😎 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!!!! WHAT!!! Yeah…. I gotta be there guys!!!!! We gotta make this happen COLE!!! Like nothing before…. 😎
