Hey guys, he's shifting at 6500 (except the starts), but the shift light was creeping down. Makes power and will spin up to 7000, but well only do that in anger (and power typically isnt the problem).
Rules here in the States are based off old SCCA regs. So .040 overbore, no stroker cranks, no dry sumps, and no crank trigger ignition. Just about everything else is free and we can get 112 octane leaded race fuel here no problem, so compression ratios are higher than you see in Europe.
5spds are allowed in vehicles that came with overdrive stock, but has to be production based (internals are free). A close ratio dog box Triumph transmission with an overdrive would be just as fast, but less reliable.
Car has to weigh 2150lbs w/o driver. The Lotus is 1250lbs, but hes 150lbs over the rules allowed 1100lbs.
