Pinecrest, yes it is a CSC, albeit an older one, I would guess a 90's CSC, no 6" setback etc... I know the car was racing at Barrie when they had the rule about the oil pressure light on the roof. It had a fresh frame in '04. I got lucky, its a good starting out car, not bent up, and it has fairly neutral handling as I got it. I learned from the car, but you can only go so far before you want to start your own new car, which is where I am right now... minus the budget of course  ;D

My point was also that while I understand V8 RWD technology and like the TC because that is what I identify from when I was a kid, that's why I race TC. I messed with musclecars and trucks before getting into racing ovals, I really don't have much experience with FWD or 4 cylinders. However I think FWD and 4 cylinders are the starting point for many younger people, it is quite often what they know. I totally agree with what you're saying about starting out. My difficulty is that now there are some of these 4 cylinder racers who don't want to move up a class, and really trick out the cars, which I don't think is really the intent of the class IMHO.

I think at BSW anyways, the right guys move up at the right time....all fo the p[ast champoions have moved on and many front runners as well....I am not entirely sure who is 'tricking out' their rides instead of moving up at this juncture...Burrows moved on, and they were the only dominate ones other than milligan.

I was talking about some of our younger friends who had some pretty wild rule suggestions after last season, a "Pro Mod" class or some major changes to the 4 cyl rules, gutting, drilled rotors, 2.5" exhaust etc... IMHO, no offense meant to the gentlemen who made these suggestions.

Bruce Beacock has a nice little VW for sale. $1000. All you need to do put in your own seat, fuel cell and dash. His cars always run up front at Sauble and i'm sure he would give you any info to help you out.
I have pics if anyone is interested or his email.

we spent about $1500 on Steeve's engine to race it for 3 years, that includes, a rebuild, the first year, a head rebuild the 2nd year and a head rebuild the 3rd year.....What cost us the most was putting the car together safely and putting new parts on the car all around. Anymore than $3500.00 asking for a mini stock is outrageous. you won't sell very quick. We sold ours the day after the last night of racing for $3500.00...If your looking to spend more than you might as well buy a Thundercar...I have about 13k or so into my new gen car and it's still not done. but were hoping it will run in the top 5 every night.

Anyhow my pic for the 4 banger class this yr is the new driver for the 35 team!  The have hired a new French hot shoe Guy Ledouche, although the secondary driver Jacques Strap might be able to give Guy a run for his money if he can find a full-time ride.  Both Guy and Jacques have been burning up the tracks around scarcely know parts, they shoiuld have thier hands full at the tight Barrie Bull ring!
