Mo,
                     Back in 1968 when I took my entire life savings and decide to go Trans-Am racing I knew that I would be in tough against the heavily fund factory teams  maybe I was a bit naive but I thought that at least I would we would be racing on a level playing field............ To me when the rule books say your car has to way 2800 lbs. not 2650 or less and your engine should be 5 liters  not 6 or 7 liters.........Nascar spends millions of dollars to ensure that  all teams adhere to the rules and you can bet your ass that if any of their competitors were caught with an over sized engine they would be gone for the season.
   When we were racing back in the day we were playing to packed houses everywhere we went........ Maybe someone should have earmarked a little more of the attendance money for tech inspectors.

Al,

I completely agree with you. I'm not advocating cheating, just saying that you have to be willing to do what others are doing if you want to level the playing field. As for NASCAR, did you hear the comment that Chad Knaus made to Jimmy Johnson on TV last year? This stuff still goes on at every level.

There's an old racers moto that says "if you cheatin, you aint tryin". Cheating or not, you have to look for the loopholes if you are going to be competitive. That is true today as it was then.

The Shelby GT350-R's had a unique short rear window. I don't think is was as much about air pressure as it was about reducing drag.
36  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Windshield / Rear Window retainer clips or straps on: February 22, 2014, 10:20:33 PM
Primarily, the clips were to prevent the front and rear windows from "popping out/off" of the car. As you said Rob; retainer clips. They were available from speed shops, but I'm sure most were hand made, as our shop did. As for when they were required, that's a good question....I don't remember when they weren't.

Riverside Trans-Am report from Car & Driver magazine. (Jon Mello Collection)



The right front tire in the first four pictures is a great example of who had handling figured out. Certainly an advantage for a light car.

how do i get my car info in the CRG database ?

Since your car is certified by Jerry, I'd be surprised if it is not already in the database.
