That ls3 Vega build i've been considering is looking more and more appealing.

The next thing is to see which cars move to what class ?

Looking forward to the next season, no matter what.

An LS3 Vega would be a blast. What class would you be shooting for?

CAM seems like a good fit. Would probably have to add a fair amount of weight but that wouldn't be so bad depending on where you add it. Preferably structural bracing low center and rearward. Bonus is you can go full pro touring and still have room for ballast.

Not being snarky, (because I'm not sure), but I thought that CAM required a minimum weight of 3000 pounds stock. No Vega left the factory that heavy. If adding ballast is allowed, it could be interesting. My '73 hatchback weighs around 2200 pounds with a six point roll bar, and the 4 cylinder engine.

The rules state that the cars must weight 3000 lbs nowhere in the CAM rules state the car has to be stock from the factory at that weight or above or that ballast cannot be added.

Problem is if you build it and win the SCCA will change that rule too but for now everyone is jumping on the corvette bandwagon.

With that said it would probably still be a good idea to email the SCCA before going out on a dedicated Vega build for CAM.

I guess I perceived the weight/ballast issue a "if they don't say you can, you can't" type of thing. In any event, if you do decide to go with a Vega, start looking now. They have gone to ridiculous prices in the last few years. Three thousand and up for a clean Vega GT, and I'm watching a '73 GT on ebay that is over five thousand. You may want to consider a Monza, Starfire, Sunbird as well as a Vega.

My buddy in HS had a Ford Maverick. I bet that car would be a fun build.

 I think the Maverick shared some parts with the Mustang, and we actually had a couple of them race with years ago. There was also a guy from Roanoke running a Chevy Nova, in E/SP pretty successfully some time back. "Grassroots" magazine had a short article about him. Like the Maverick, the Nova shared some suspension parts with other GM vehicles.

Ricardo needs one of my "Anti-Pax" decals. I'll try and find one for you.

Ask and you shall receive. Here is an LS-1 Cosworth Vega.

Oddly, while mentioning the changes to the lS-1, he doesn't point out that the engine is now carbureted. I've seen Vegas with LS engines and fuel injection fit under a factory hood. I prefer the Cosworth engine myself. I've seen them make over 200 hp. Pretty car.

Or, you could look at the Cosworth Vega race car for sale on ebay. Has a cage, cell, etc, etc. Claims to have been dynoed at over 240 hp on 20% nitro-methane.
