Matt: I will take a crack at answering some of your questions.... 1. is there any attempt to equalize the performance of the different model cars (for example through adjusting the minimum weights), or are there certain models that are clearly superior in each class? If there's no equalization, what are the most competitive cars in each class? A: Not really other than the three classes that exist - HS2 Outboard Spring, VS2 - Inboard spring with Rockers, S2 - Improved aero and chassis stiffness. Tiga seems to be the strongest in the HS2 class, Shrike and swift in the VS2 and Carbir in the S2, but a well driven car in any of these classes can do well in class and an exceptionally driven car of any class can contend for overall honors. 2. What are replacement part availability like? are there certain models to stay away from because the parts aren't available anymore? I assume new body panels are NLA, and everyone is making new bodies from custom made molds? Depends on the part. The more numerous the car, the easier it is to get parts. Yes, new panels are available, prices vary. 3. What is the rebuild cost on the engine / transmission, and how many competitive hours can be expected from them? A: $4 to $8 grand depending on what is needed on the engine. I think $2-3 on gearbox, again depending on how much needs to be replaced. They will last a long time (a few seasons) if not abused. 4. What class and/or car models would you recommend? A: This is a personal preference. I started in HS2 and have moved to VS2 for this season. S2 has the most cars and is the quickest. 5. Is anyone racing these cars with NASA? what classes? any chance of them being competitive? A: No idea 6. Is there a way to actually put a passenger in the car? for an instructor, friends/family, etc. A: can be done, but it is pretty tight and the opportunity to get them on track is very limited. There is good information on here as well....https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/s2racing/ R
