Should this front engine car be allowed to run Pro Mod
eric madson said:The problem with that statement and also question.
Rules were in place when the car was built.
No one campaigned for the change before the build.
Changing the rules effects the remainder of the class as old technology.
Why were these items not done prior to the build? I too can see an advantage to using V8 technology in a car and am tired of breaking VW style axles. Given the opportunity and rules, I would have gone down that road also to save money in the long run. I enjoy Larsen and Harvey at the races....good people. When they get that car shook out...it will be bullet fast. We the old school guys will still be stuck with expensive old school tail draggers that will continue to tear up old school style parts.
Front engine snoopy car.....it would really freak out the local V8 racing farmers in Grand Junction. ;D
It doesn't. Not even close. Super bad-ass car, and not to take anything away from Harvey and the gang for building the beast, but its just not for ACVW Pro Mod, IMO.buggdude67 said:I think that if this car pass's all the rules and tech of Pro Mod, why not.
Just my 2 cents.
Yep, but Lummus' New Beetle wasn't front-motored and ran a VW-style Mendeola swing, not a Powerglide. Body type isn't the issue here, its powertrain (among other things).Lanky said:Lummis's new beetle fit pro mod rules didn't it?

Part of my reservations on building one is my lack of confidence with the PRA. I will leave it at that.
I am a BIG fan and supporter of Pro Mod and even put up my own prize money for them whenever I can.
