    Kirk, I'll plead guilty to looking at this from a personal perspective. I agree that SCCA needs to think strategically, but part of thinking strategically is providing racing programs that are...

    Ned Freeston's IT7 listed above is still available. It's a very solid car and for the price he's asking, it would be well worth the trip down to North Carolina.

    The really cheap way to install a legal tow eye is: 1) acquire 2" u-bolt (old muffler clamps are free), 2) cut 3" piece of steel strip, say 1 1/2 " x 3/16, 3) weld u-bolt to strip, 4) drill two holes...

    Thanks, Steve. So if I understand you correctly, your main concern is that the standard flapper valve doesn't work quite as well as a NASCAR ball system (or the newer Fuel Safe flapper that's...

    Yea, I forgot the part about the 1.5 x .120 option going away (also I ignored the older option of using a thinner/smaller tubing if it was chrome moly). On your STU question, it depends on whether...

    No, note that the table says "GCR Vehicle Weight", which in all cases includes the driver. So regardless of what your car actually weighs, your required cage tube size is based on the minimum weight...

    Do all 1st gen tubs weigh the same?

    I've seen some anecdotal evidence that early first generation RX-7 tubs (1979-80) are a bit (50-100 lbs) lighter than the later models. Most of the ITA/7 cars that I've seen that are close to minimum...
