    S197/5th Gen Camaro CMC2!

    Just kidding, but with our newest chassis turning 16 next season maybe it is time to think about how to bring more modern chassis into the fold? However I haven’t heard of someone not running the class because the cars are old...

    I think the class took off just fine. There were several local builds very early. But the build costs were pretty high so you weren't going to pull in the little guys without several years of continuous good racing. The biggest downfall was how easy it was to convert the car to AI. At the first sign of weakness, some of the cars were converted and the whole thing imploded. It's a shame because I think the cars are great and the rule set fixes most of the complaints from the AI/CMC rules garnered over many years of running.

    Cars were still way too heavy. That needed to be fixed a long time ago and many of us complained about it but it never changed.

    Opinions vary. I don't think they were that heavy. If you're a fat guy, you were excited that there was finally a class that didn't discriminate against you...

    Robin Burnett who won Spec Iron is very familiar with Mid Ohio. He is a regular in our region and has raced Mid O hundreds of times. If anybody was going to get a spec iron car around Mid O fast it would be Robin. So I think the fast times for Spec Iron would be accurate.

    At least it's from this century - Consider the Camaros we run were designed in `92 (more like `91) at the newest and the mustang in `78. Computing power for design legitimately didn't exist when CMC cars were the pinnacle of mullet tech.
