    Chumpcar, we simply told John that we would not race our 10,000$ car for a 2000$ claimer.
    $10,000 Chumpcar??? Thought they were supposed to be low budget.

    I would agree that I've never seen or heard of a claimer series that actually worked. There are plenty of examples from my own experience with the GRM 200X challenge to the $10,000 chumpcar referenced above. It seems like it's the claimer theory is always much better than the practice. Maybe a better question is does anyone have experience with a claimer series that did keep costs around the claim value and what made that work?

    That ship sailed a long time ago. The real-world low-budget aspects remain: street tires and divide-costs-by-4.
