Many people are just not open to the idea that it is possible. Doesn't matter how much data you give them, they will always cry foul. 

We like LMP360 because it is awesome. It happens that it was also cheap. 

If we focus on the awesome, more people will agree than if we focus on the cheap.

Richard Petty's grandson, Thad Moffitt, will compete in Trans Am's TA2 class starting in 2023.

Since the press release is pretty big, here are a few snippets:

It was announced today at the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show (PRI) that Thad Moffitt, grandson of racing legend Richard Petty, will compete full time in the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli’s TA2 class in 2023. Moffitt and Trans Am president John Clagett unveiled the No. 43 Safety-Kleen Chevrolet Camaro that Moffitt will pilot in his championship effort for TeamSLR. The Petty blue Chevy from constructor M1 Racecars will run out of TeamSLR’s headquarters in St. Augustine, Florida with support from Petty’s Garage in Randleman, North Carolina.

“I can’t wait to join the Trans Am Series in 2023,” said Moffitt. “The TA2 class is one of the most competitive places to race in all of motorsports, and it will be great to have a chance to race against the huge fields that include champions like Rafa Matos, Mike Skeen and Thomas Merrill. The series races at some of the most historic tracks in the country, with high-profile events like the Music City Grand Prix and Detroit Grand Prix; I am so grateful to have this opportunity.”

“I am so proud that Thad is going to be running in the Trans Am Series next year,” said Petty. “I think it is a wonderful opportunity for him to drive in such a competitive series and learn road racing. I love that we’re able to bring the No. 43 to Trans Am, and it will be so special to see a member of our family race that Petty blue Camaro. I am very appreciative to Safety-Kleen for helping make this possible through our continued partnership.”

Moffitt will make his Trans Am debut when the 2023 season kicks off at Sebring (Fla.) International Raceway on February 23-26. To prepare for that debut, Moffitt will participate in the pre-season test at Sebring Jan. 25-26 under the guidance of father-and-son duo Scott Lagasse and Scott Lagasse, Jr. The TeamSLR co-owners have combined to win more than 100 races and seven championships across a variety of series and styles of racecars, from paved ovals to road courses to dirt tracks.

I was seeing them for closer to $300, but the price would have to come down to under $200 before I'd consider it. You can piece together a cheap pyrometer setup for $100, a nice tire gauge would be $30~$50, and the bluetooth logging feature is worth an easy $50.

Ooh.

Now I want to know what other applications there are. Personal agenda wants them for P2 Volvos, but those are a dwindling market.

If they make one for the rear of Subarus, though, they will sell many thousands.

That is definitely supposed to run canted over to the left!  What racing class would run it? I thought Midgets were limited to 180-ish CI.

Not a fan of the bottom end (2 bolt mains and pan rail inline with the crank, in 2022?) but the more I look at it, the more I realize those are Iron Duke bones.

 

A 220ci Iron Duke that can breathe???

I, for one, cannot wait until the price of used TA1 and TA2 cars on racingjunk crosses over with the amount of disposable cash I have on hand. I think in 10-15 years these are going to be an even better option than used stock cars for building a track toy out of.

Kind of surprised to not see the BluePrint Racing Engines new 3.6L 4 cylinder with an LS head. I can think of a TON of stuff I'd love to stuff one in... and then boost it. 

I grabbed screen shots from their coverage on Instagram. Looks pretty bitchin. 

 

That is definitely supposed to run canted over to the left!  What racing class would run it? I thought Midgets were limited to 180-ish CI.

Not a fan of the bottom end (2 bolt mains and pan rail inline with the crank, in 2022?) but the more I look at it, the more I realize those are Iron Duke bones.

 

A 220ci Iron Duke that can breathe???

Ok I NEED this.....I have a billet 4 valve head I made for the LS sitting on my garage shelf...never got the chance to make a second prototype so a 4 cyl build would be perfect....

The thing has been collecting dust for 6 years...and I actually only recovered it 3 or 4 years ago as things were being sold off from the company I used to work for and I asked about it. They just gave it to me. 

I've been waiting for a free blown up aluminum LS to start with but a purpose made 4 cyl block is so much better to start a build with.
