I like the side dams use to break up the TI22 domination as long as it does not get out of hand.

 

What are your rules for them?

 

Car looks great.

Basically no rules officially posted on the side dams other than a past thread. It was mentioned the side dams can be glued or stapled to a maximum height no higher on the sides than any legally approved Ti-22 body by the SCRRA. No minimum or maximum thickness requirements of the side dams.  NOT LEGAL FOR ANY OF THE BIG RACES.

   Eddie,

      Thanks!  A Chris Amon Can Am Ferrari 612. We started allowing bodies other than the TI's to run little air dams about 2 years ago.  And like Tim said, only in the monthly races, not at any of the major events so it was never written into the SCRRA rules. We also are pretty lenient in the monthly races for allowing racers to fix minor problems with their cars such as a lost wheel or a loose gear that can be fixed quickly, which is also against the rules, but at the monthly races we're just a bit more tolerant.

      The rules for the add on air dams are pretty simple.......no higher than a line connecting the top of the front fender to the top of the highest point of the body in the rear.  Can be quickly added with double sided tape and a small staple gun. I made a bunch of .005 lexan strips and handed some out to a few racers but in over 2 years I believe the only racers that have ever added them are myself, Dennis Samson and Jason Holmes. Despite some racers saying it would be the beginning of the end for Retro racing at BPR is has been a total non-issue from the start. Personally I like to run bodies other than the TI's and I have never done any serious back to back tests but I figure the air dams can't hurt!

   In BPR action today, the usual hard fought Flat track races. In F1, Mill Conroy ran to a comfortable win followed by Dale Yamashita in second. The last podium spot went down to the wire with Jason Holmes just edging Bryan Warmack and Gary Donahoe by inches when the power went off!   Can Am had Dale Yamashita on top over Bryan Warmack in 2nd and Mill Conroy in 3rd in a super race!

 

   Full report with pics up shortly...........
