    Default S16 Track Car

    I have the Gravel Car - which is great.

    The new project is a very basic supersprint car - 306 S16 to run in unmodified class 1 B ( I think)

    Alas to little time. To many cars!

    Just do it. It would be in NM2AM if in the CSCA competition. ie non-marque, under 2L, very limited modifications, rego optional, modern (post 1986). A reasonably competitive class, dominated by Clios.

    So far, so good. Stripped the interior and removed non essential items. Cage to be done in the next 4 weeks (any one after a 306 cage as well?)

    Should be up and running in Jan.

    309 kits as well
    Trouble is the car is grey but they do have various colours available.
    After taking a closer look at the car today and trying to fix some roadworthy items I am less worried about simplifying it and making a competition car out of it! Especially finding a bit of rust here and there.

    306 looks great Maxi. They do a 405 kit as well. Replica of Rob Gravett's white '92 BTCC car. I asked them if they could change all the black signage for white (which they can) as my 405 is grey too. 196 ($395) delivered.

    Yes, that's the car.

    Car is now at Bond Roll Bars - getting a cage fitted. We decided to go for a 6 point bolt in. So if any one is after a 306 cage (bolt in) then Bonds have the template - Expect to pay around $1200 - 1300ish for a fit yourself kit for the 306 shell, with diagonals, door bars and a roof diagonal.

    Do the front legs of the cage go through the dash or infront of it?

    Basic Structure 12.1 J1, J2, J3
    notation 16.

    Its only a cage for State level, not International level - where bolt in is not permitted.

    Ok, everyone I'm speaking to people who want to be able to do a National championship round for improved production and you need to have double roof bars. Which is more than four bolted joints at roof level.

    Yes thats right: Below for national

    (c) Roof Reinforcement:
    For Off Road competitions, National Championship and National Series level Race and

    Rally competitions (and recommended in other competitions):
    The upper part of the safety cage structure shall comply with Drawing J-14, J-15 or J-16. However,for a driver only competition, in the case of Drawing J-14, only one diagonal member is requiredsubject to its front connection being on the driver’s side.
    The reinforcements may follow the curve of the roof.
    The ends of the reinforcements must be less than 100mm from the junction between roll bars andmembers (not applicable to the top of the’V’ formed by reinforcements in Drawings J-15 and J-16).
