  1. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    Is that like "Hold my beer"?
  2. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    maybe I'll look at the CTS next time I'm looking for a beater... my current 03 Crown Vic sport is running to well right now thou...
  3. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    This is why I sold my 99 540i had 272,000 on it. Loved the car, drove better than my 08 Mustang GT w/ 52k but didn't want to deal with that HEADACHE.
  4. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    then how about a 220hp 305 roller motor with ported and milled heads? I think the caddy would work w/ stock V6, no emissions, performance tune (free right?) Not sure what suspension is in that car but if it is just coil springs and no air ride, order some stiffer springs, cut them to the right height and roll.
  5. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    keep the boost low (under 8psi) and the fuel coming and most engines can survive, BUT you WILL use more fuel, so you'd have to do the math to see if you will be better off. If you have to stop 3 extra times a race than any gains would be gone...still fun to roll it down the straights and hear the turbo whine
  6. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    Then use a 170HP 1980 350
  7. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    25 points for going to manual and the 5 speed (as mentioned) was only offered in the V8 LS and not the V8. Now here's a good question, since you are already over on points how hard is it to put a LS (SBC) in that Caddy?
  8. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    brake upgrades don't count towards points and one could take an easy 1000 lbs off the car. the curb weight is about 3500. A lot of t hat is going to be cream puff stuff and power stuff. If you want to get crafty with a plasma cutter you could probably knock off another 250-300.
  9. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    FWIW you can get the LS with a V6 and 5 speed as well. Not sure what trans the Caddy uses, but if it is a T-5 type, they are cheap and plentiful.
  10. Cadillac CTS for a chumpcar?

    Looks like you'll start with a few points, but I'd do it.
  11. we don't have a silly theme, pay the fee show up and race. To the question asked. yes and no. Your car will have to pass "tech" according to each league. Some leagues require a license from that league, some transfer. AER only requires you have raced in 5 Chump/LeMons events OR a SCCA license. I do know that NJMP does NOT allow Chump/LeMons cars in some of there "open track" events. If you are going to run one of those you better bring a fast car...NASA "American Iron" cars for example are all out fast race cars.
  12. Fluid leaks on track (Fuel spray)

    We were spilling some, replaced the "vented" cap for a non-vented, seemed to help.
  13. Ebay... all of my gear meets/exceeds Chump Specs and I got it all on ebay for about 1/3rd the prices offered on the Chump site, from Chump sponsors. You just can't be picky on colors.. my driving suit is YELLOW ooooffffffff
  14. How to find sponsors?

    Yes to the above, we explained where we race, what leagues, explained the video shoots... and again this isn't free stuff, we still had to pay for it, just at a reduced rate.
