looks like a sweet piece.. it should be very easy to tech..
then sunset will have a good piece to check all the other
metric cars that run at the track..
so what wil sunset do with all the camaros that run there??
will they have chassis rules to check them out
or even roof heights??

Camaros are gonna stay how they are, if u took that tube clip off the front of that u have my car, if the weights are right and everything is stock it shouldnt be an issue

the radios at barrie worked good even in minis....but EVERYONE has to have them working for it to work out.  I really dont think you need them however...it was money I could have saved for sure.

And they are a pain in the ass.

They are one ways for line-up and such. Too bad you cant hear a damn thing out of them. Waste of money? Yes.

Yetti, maybe you can explain.   What is it about the built metric chassis that renders all others uncompetitive?

If you need to ask that, you wouldn't understand the answer.

Or maybe you don't know the answer.   I'm pretty sure I'd understand it.........if you had an answer.

From what I understand, the new built chassis is exact in terms of pick-up points, steering, and weight distribution.

Am I wrong?  What different information do you have?

They are designed to be identical to a metric chassis, it will use all the same stuff as what the metrics are, sunset has no track width rule, they were built off a stock spec sheet from merv walt with all the stock pick up poi ts, even the upper and lower a arm mounts are in stock location

So is a Donaldson chassis....



A donaldson chassis is a full size chevelle chassis from front to back. the 46 and 72 are all chevelle chassis.

i left my car with an automatic and a stock rearend on drum brakes and still won 5 features and a ton of heats, so by the rules i should have been a "mid pack car"

1) your car is for sale, with at very least your eye on a car that better matches that 72.

2) you know better than that.

Spewing BS doesn't help the class Herb.

Heck no. Herbie was winning races when the 72 was trying to find his setup. When the 72 found his setup herbie was getting in wrecks and getting shit bent. With both drivers on their A game would be some hell of racing just like u saw with th 17 and 72. And the 17 is a camaro. Thats why we call it racing.

This seems to be a topic people want to talk about but name calling isn't what is needed so people please try and cool it as, I haven't issued warnings in a long time and dont want to have put monitoring on post before they are aloud in this topic.

Thanks

k guys  this is getting stupid , this topic was posted to talk about the guys from mosport, kawartha, peterborough wanting to put together a thunder car  class for those tracks that is affordable , having the same set of rules, and even scaling back some of the rules . this isn't about the super stocks of sunset  .
we have pro late model, limited late models , thunder cars / super stocks & minis. if you start making the cars look the same is it good for the fans ?  some guys just want to keep the rules as is with a few changes , to save money and keep it competive , is that wrong?

Sunset allows a 112" car to be made 108", there are cars out there that are both, five star makes doors for the metric monte carlo that are 4" longer to accomadate the 112" car, there are people that study wording off a rule book just to find an advantage over the next guy, and if u can do that than hats off to you, u could probably put any 2 cars side by side to the rule book and they both would be different, just cause someone can read them better,
