Run RetroPro, Stem.

 

Doesn't that mean going over to the Dark Side?

Like twice a year. Not really worth it. I know Mr. Noose has some as well as others. And the RetroPro class would require new arms so your point is not valid.

 

Would make sense to run the PD in the new class.

Are you referring to the anglewinder class?

The RetroPro class is a SCRRA class and it is an anglewinder class. No one has run the IRRA® anglewinder class that I know of.

Stem, the 4002FK is faster.

I didn't know that. Haven't tried any Can-Am Plus cars out yet. Should get some testing done this week.

What are the rear body height rules?

Yes... I tried that 12-arm-in-a-short-can some years back when the PS motor first appeared. We even stuck them in wing car chassis. Very impressive performance given the expense but no one was interested at the time. Or now, it seems.

I just started racing again after almost 20 years absence, mainly because of the lack of tracks in Virginia...

Anyhow, i now live in Massachusetts and have been racing Retro for six months now... When I walked back into racing and the chassis cost me $90, $50 motor, plus extras I would not have been able to build such a "garage" of Retro cars as I have now.... With the affordable Retro Hawks I have been able to purchase chassis from a lot of you guys here on Slotblog... Many of you will attest.

If the only competitive option was a $50 motor things would have been different...

Affordable motors in Retro have afforded me a chance to race every week and join in on the fun that is the NERR series...

Oh and I am still running the first Retro Hawk I purchased...

For what class? 

If Can-Am Plus there is no rear body height rule only 1/2 inch spoiler. 

For RetroPro it is 1.375" to include the spoiler.
