ok, "dude", besides a swap and a few minor mods, tell me what is the huge difference between them, and again if you read my post I said "basically". You can take a H4 CRX single cam vtec, change the cams and intake and voila you have a H2 car. So BASICALLY is the same car and you didn't even need a swap. That's what I meant by "basically", dude.
That's one way to interpret the rules. Another way is to look at H4 and H2 seperately. For instance: If I am building an H4 car, I am going to pick which chassis I believe is best based on which engine I have to use. If I am building an H2 car, I am NOT going to take an H4 car and change a few mods to make it legal for H2. Instead, I would choose which engine and chassis combo I believe would be best and build it to the maximum extent of the rules.
The way you present it is someone that is choosing to run a mid-pack H2 car. The way I present it is someone that wants to run up front in H2, regardless of cost. That, unfortunately, is racing.
In HC, if I don't build it to the max of the rules that is my own fault. They are outlined for me to follow, depending on which engine/chassis I choose.
If I choose to build a budget mid-pack car I know what to expect out of the car. I also know what to expect out of myself. I also know what the limits of the rules are. Therefore, I should not complain and tell everybody else to lower their whp to let me catch up.
Of course you have to look at it separate, that is why they are two different classes. Of course if you want to build a H2 car you will try to choose which combo you think should be the best. But if you already have a H4 car and you want to go H2 then you should be able to do that too.
H2 is not and should not be a Jr. H1, There is way more differences between H1 and H2 than there is between H2 and H4 and the way I see it you want to build a legal H1 car for H2.
Everybody is fixiated in the word "horsepower", and horsepower doesn't equal racing, there is way more variables than just horsepower.
I still don't understand how if we have a cap we are going to spend more money, I don't see it sorry.
I'm going to give you an example with no names and places so nobody feels like the shoe fits but here it is. I went to this event where there was a late model civic SI running what must be a K20a2 engine, and then there was a well developed legal and max to the rules crx. There was absolutely no comparison between the two cars. I don't know if it was driver or car but this is a comentary I heard from somebody close to the SI " that crx has to be illegal".
So now the car that is well developed and I know for sure is legal was considered illegal, just because the other car got passed like he was standing still.
I don't think that would have happened with a cap.
I'm not trying to convince anybody , we are going to try here and see what happens, I might even have to bring a truck load of cement bags to start weighing down some cars, fill the trunk with bags to the rules
Anyway we will see what happens in April.
