      BOD Nominations   10/03/2017

      Emails have been sent to all current CCWS Members with a link to BOD nominations. Please check your email.   You will need to ask the person you're nominating for their current 2017 CCWS Member Number. Keep in mind that we will contact each nominee to make sure they are OK with being a candidate. You can't nominate yourself either (sorry). All nominations are due by November 3, 2017. To keep from having 574 different nominees, a nominee must be named by at least five members to qualify. We will compile all the nominations and put the top ten nominees on the November 10, 2017, ballot. Elections are over on December 10, 2017. We will announce the winners on December 13, 2017, and the two winners will take office January 1, 2018. How to get your current CCWS member number. Log into the CCWS event registration system. Your member number will be next to your name on the welcome screen. https://www.chumpcar.com/register/login.php Mike Chisek

How do you figure? 1994 Accord with the F22B1 that makes 145HP at 200 points. Put in a K20A2 at 200HP, and you're now at 281 points, 200HP, and a 17 gal tank.

Nevermind, I misunderstood you. 

Yeah, there are tons of engines from Honda that make good power. But I haven't put any thought into why there aren't 200 hp Accords out there cleaning house. There has to be a reason, because you could put any number of B18's in one as well.

My guess is aftermarket support? That, or people just naturally gravitate towards the Civic/CRX/Prelude/Integra when considering budget Honda race cars? Potentially no one has put any thought to it.

Or we're missing something...

I do not see a reason to drive a FWD BMW. The only thing you know is everything will be more expensive. If you must stay wrong wheel drive, why not something like a Cobalt? You could even remove the key ignition that kills you. Or you could go old school GM and get an olds or Beretta with a Quad4. Best thing is you could find a roundy round car of any of the above already built. Just add windshield and lexan.
