I believe some of the aussie cars ran hollinger boxes, might be an issue if they come over next year.

we are working to 1990 regs Paul so hollinger is out unless we relax the rules as we go , or make a exception for the aussie boys , who knows as we are still in the very early stages and trying very hard to find a common ground to suit everyone

As they say , you cant please all of the people all of the time , BUT , if we work together im sure we will get there  :)

that sounds ok,  the only time the inner arches are done is when they are tubed for thunder saloon kit,

i do know of two cars that have been de thunder salooned but tubes left in,

have a standard tyre size will levels everyone up,

hi all hope you are well

have we sorted the brakes yet by going to bigger wheels ie 18 you can fit bigger brakes there needs to be a max size of the disc i would like to run period brakes as they are easy to get

trust we are talking about like for like suspension not  34 or 5 way

for what its worth my vote would be to run the cars to the rules of the day i accept the first race will be a bit up and down but after that the cars need to be as they were

if you look at any of the classic racing that has lasted its all run to fia rules from the period with few if any changes (just look at fia cortinas still massive grids there 50 this year all app k fia )
