I AGREE! Way too heavy . The solo 2 rules should be changed. A good weight
minimum for D mod would be 1500 lbs and E mod should be 1800 or 1900 lbs. d&e
mods ought to be able to be built using any 2-seater sportscar. If the lotuses
are too light , let them use ballast weights! You would play hell ever getting
an rx7 to 1500 lbs for E mod let alone 1000 lbs for D mod.

I have to disagree here. Has'nt a Sprite with a turbo been tried? I think
was the first year I went and watched the Nationals. A couple of the cars
mention won't even get close. The TVR,Porsche 914 and the Elva could never
get even reasonably close to 1000lbs. The others might get close but won't
I'm not being closed minded, just realistic
What does everyone else think?
