in open mod we allow the lotus 7 clones..as I recall, if someone was to show up with an extremely lightweight mustang with race tires, I would assume it would fall into the same class?..I'm talkin g about gutted doors and all.

Rob, everything on race tires (under 140 wear) ends up in R1. Including Amod even.

Welcome to R1.

Just has to be safe. Full firewall. Nothing falling off or leaking.

Push Harder - Drive as close to the limit of your tires as possible.
Suck Less - Drive something resembling a proper racing line.

Wasn't even talking about... whatever you're talking about. My memory isn't that good!

Just, in general. Stripped out race cars... make sure nothing's loose, falling off, or leaking!
