So for ITE you can have non-stock suspension pick-up points and lexan windshield? I thought those were specifically not allowed? Maybe that was the old rules...

I know a guy who runs his old American Iron car in GT2 because of those two things, he would be much more competitive in ITE. I would actually run my American Iron car in ITE too, especially since NASA doesn't go to Laguna Seca anymore.

I think I posted the rules earlier in this thread....those are the only rules.
Basically start with a stock tub, DOT tires and safety stuff. Thats it.
Darrel Anderson has the record in a carbon fiber bodied SLA equipped Big inch built LS powered monster from days gone by. I saw the car up close, there is not much actual mustang there.

I always thought ITE was a run what you brung class, which you showed. I don't understand why people would complain with that type rule set; mind boggling
As I often say:

"A lifetime of racing and business has taught me this:
There will always be those who find fault in your success.
f*** them".

you'll just have to make up for it with superior driving ability
Haha I’ll do my best.
Roger is an extremely accomplished road racer and someone I have a ton of respect for. On the other hand, I don’t like to lose and I don’t care who you are you better be on your game or I’m taking it from you. I just hope we’re all still friends come Monday. If nothing else, I’ll follow and learn something from him.
Stay tuned.

Okay, I filled the trans with Amsoil ATF. That's what I ran in my other Tremec and it shifted flawlesly.
Lets hope something magic happens.
