Looks like another Howe chassis to me, nothing Dodge about it. The Mustangs and Camaros in TA2 are all identical Howe chassis', they just stick another body on it - they call it tube framers for a reason!

IF Dodge would bring a car to TA(1), I would assume it would a Viper bodied one.

Anyway, all good fun, especially when they still run all cars together, nothing beats a 40 car TA pack thundering towards to you!

Wish the screaming Mazda would return - O, what a wonderful sound, pure joy for the ears!

Btw, this weekend's race at Mid-Ohio sees 59 cars entered (World Challenge had 52 last weekend) and they will all race together Saturday afternoon!

I keep looking but I never see it in the guide. Like I'll go out a week during a commercial and I still don't see it.

I enjoy it. Yeah they are dinosaurs but they are fast fire breathing monsters.

80,000 dollars for the full car? Wow, that's cheap!

Do they still use carburettors that NASCAR abandoned finally? Anyway, T/A used to be interesting series back in the days when it was a pro series with works or semi-works teams. But at least they don't pretend to be 'green'. It's just racing...vibration, flames and backfiring. Something that many European national series seem to lack.

I think they still use carbs so to speak. Remember, Trans-Am is an amateur series and most of the teams can't but nor tune fuel-injected engines yet.

Scratch that, they can buy those engines but SCCA won't allow them.

It takes far more knowledge and skill to tune a carburettor than take a computer and work on an injection system.
The carb specialists in NASCAR were paid very big bucks.

That makes sense. Programmable and mandated ECU mounted in a spec engine should actually be easier to adjust than a fully mechanical carburettor.
A few decades ago in Finland we had a common phrase Replacement carburettor tune-up has been successful if the hp is less than 10% lower than in the factory setting. Nowadays, you can switch to MoTec or other programmable ECU and actually get some results.

Hence the success of the car in TA2 which saw 25 entries last weekend.

All in all great value for money - which is always #1 on the list of the 'club racer'!

Does anyone actually reach these obscure channels? The only one I even recognize is Mav TV, even though I've never seen any of their broadcasts either.

Don't know why
Nice looking car.

What are laptimes compared to GT3?
