The spirit gauge measures the thickness. The flimsy and detriment to marshaling decision is made when I take your car to tech it and the entire chassis flops to one side with the tires hanging out past the edge of the body to the point where the front axle/tube is almost out, too. These type of cars (now read this, Bob C.) ARE NOT IN THE SPIRIT OF RETRO RACING, are flimsy and the detriment to marshaling is when your body gets hung up over the wheels (typically fronts) and causes a marshal to have to fiddle with it in order to get it back in the slot. That can and has resulted in causing problems for other racers. A car meeting the thickness specs on the sides does not do this.

Flimsy is when I take a GT car and in attempting to put it on the block the roof collapses because the body is too thin. Oops. Hmm... now this happens in the race and the racer yells to the marshal... throw me the car. Oops... falls on the track and seven other guys slam into it.

The name's Bond... Tech Bond... keeper of .007. Now ya'll remember what happened to .006 right? He wound up in Nationals Treasure chasing the Declaration of Independence around after he got killed in by Bond. Guess he was still trying to find a way to be legal as 006. :laugh2:

I'll agree with Noose about the thin body being a detriment to other cars.
One car in particular at the first Sano had a body that parallelogramed when you tried to marshal it.
With it folding over into the next lane, other cars would hit my hand as I tried to put it back in.

i would like to see a few more Fords offered for the retro stocks.

I also had problems with my body being destroyed. I think a guy might get pretty good at painting before long! My body made it one race and two Friday night hot lap sessions. I couldn't have had any thing to do with knocking the wall down and getting hit a ton by a rental guy :shok:

I did have few different paint schemes I want to try, I just didnt think I would be painting weekly. This was supposed to be less work than racing at the Saturday night bullring. :laugh2:

One more observation... a minimum hand span requirement for turn marshals. While I have more, I strongly recommend a minimum requirement of 9 inches measured at full hand expansion from the tip of the thumb to tip of the pinkie. This will prevent a reasonable amount of detrimental (LOL) concern whilst marshalling. Rick can easily develop another spirit gauge to tech the marshals. :laugh2:

Now I know many of you guys are going to grab a tape measure, or ruler to measure yourself and some will indeed will be dissapointed and probably further emasculated with their findings. Don't despair, there are marshals always needed for 1/32 Eurosport in the ISRA circuit. ;)

And I've heard him whine at Dom's when his .000000000000000000 I am so damn thin body on his NASCAR was whipping all over the place but he still won.

By the way, Ray, make sure the instrument used to measure that 9 inches is calibrated. :laugh2:

Tony:

By the way I loved that F1 Howie Ursaner edition Cooper. Wait now, you painted and prepped that body. If I remember it was a turn marshal's hand that got in the way of my lane while handling another car and ripped the nose off. That body won F1 in Maryland remember? Anyway Tony, can you paint one up again for me with the same paint scheme? Pleeeze

Some guys in some places have problems and other guys in other places have no problems. All of the bodies have been pulled from the same polycarbonate material with varying results in the field.


Ron,

Thanks for jumping in here on this topic. As far as the headlights, body lines etc, that can make "some" sense.

Where I don't understand it is when an entire Rear quarter panel Pops off.

Anyone would admit that is where there are the least contour changes in one of these bodys. What I have seen is reminiscent of the old butyrate bodies and a little frightening.

Noose, Didn't you say that you had a windshield shatter? That part has no paint and as close to flat as well.. the roof.

I think we should try to get you some data... meaning photos etc so that there can be some troubleshooting. Right now in our series we do have some guys that are going to just run with the "parts" packing taped on for this next race because they are afraid to "spend the time" on another one. Money hasn't entered the equation.

Let's get some others to step up with some info that may help out here and I will promise to grab some photos this weekend.

Mike Hathaway.. you had some data as well as Ryan. Jump in here and lend that to the cause.

Mark

QUOTE (Mark Misegadis @ Mar 11 2009, 10:30 AM)
If we want to have a topic that us useful... Why don't we instead discuss how brittle the new IRRA Stock Car bodies are. During our inaugural event we had cars that were more strapping tape to tie an ENTIRE quarter panel or NOSE back on, etc. This was seen across the entire field so we can blame that on paint. I'd like to know if others are having the same experience???

Ron,

We did see issues with the bodys for the IRRA stock cars again. I will start a new thread for this topic under the Rocky Mountian Retro area of the board so that we can have our racers post the pictures and informaton to help potentially resolve this issue.

Thank you and we appreciate your interest.

I am not trying to stir things up, but does any one know how thick the bodies were in 1966?
Maybe all retro bodies should be the same thickness as was used in 1966, to keep it in the "spirit".

The supplier blames the distributor, and the distributor blames the supplier. Meanwhile, I get blamed by my customers for not having them. Aren't "approved" bodies supposed to be readily available to the masses, and not just to a select few raceways?

Hi Don:

I don't know for sure what is happening in YOUR case but having worked for a manufacturer in the past and having handled irate calls from racers or raceway owners complaining that we (the manufacturer) were not shipping to the distributor, about 80% of the time it was because the distributor had not ORDERED the item in question. :blush:

In the distributors' defense, most of the time they were waiting until they had a large enough order to justify the shipping costs. If I could suggest, you could call the manufacturer if it's something you need right away and have them bill you THRU the distributor and pay the shipping costs yourself. That way the distributor is not paying $5.50 shipping to ship something where his profit is $2.00...

Just my $00.02,

Mike

Please note that the Impala above is 1965 and that the card info is wrong. The Part Number is correct. The bodies can be ordered here:

Raceways should contact VFC.

They do not have it listed, but also available is the '66 Chevelle body part # D33, which was previously approved. I have both bodies, and they are very nice. Make sure you specify .015 thickness.

John,
Since you seem to be their contact, maybe get them to put that
'66 Chevelle up on their website.

I wouldn't call myself their contact, but since the Chevelle was approved I started looking at what else they had. But that is a good idea and will mention it to them.

Love the Fairlane on the site. Only One Problem they never had a 429 in 67. Only engine was a boss 429. That should have 390/427. 429's weren't available till 68 and only in the mustangs. Just some facts for some of the Nascar guru's on here.

See if you can get the JK Cadzilla body approved :laugh2:

FYI:

We used to race them with the body mounted backward because they were faster.

John,
Since you seem to be their contact, maybe get them to put that
'66 Chevelle up on their website.

They did even better than that... here's the reply I got back from Barbara at VFC:

I added a new page/category on our website called, "IRRA Approved Bodies",
and put it at the top of the list. I put the two cars that are approved,
the (D33) 1966 Chevelle and the (N04) 1965 Impala SS on that page. It is
quite an honor to have two cars approved by the IRRA. I included the IRRA
web link along with a Thank you on the page.

The Chevelle was listed, but it was under drag cars as that's what people have typically used it for.
They are also working on a '69 Mercury Cyclone that I am hoping will be of the proper dimensions to be used. Stay tuned....
"Whatever..."
