on the results of the vote this rule change will take effect for the
2015/2016 Ice Racing season. For this season (2014/2015) locked
differentials will not be permitted in the spec Chevette class as
documented in the current rules.
1.6 Rear Axle
original equipment only. Ratios between 2.71:1 and 3.8:1. The 4.11:1 ratio (rare) is not allowed. Any traction improving modification is
optional. The differential may be locked
by any of the following means: Locker, spool, shimming or welding the spider
POSTPONED: Due to the fact that no one had time to order Black Rocket tires we will hold this over for next year.
This year NASCC has decided to put the issue of
manufactured studded tires to the test. As
there has been mixed feedback about the prior studded tire configurations, I
would like to propose a new tire/stud combo that has a proven history. The tire line for consideration is the Black
Rocket studded rally tire. I am
personally very interested to see how this works out for us all, and would
propose that we try a group purchase. I
know that, like myself, there are racers amongst us that would like to try
studs but don’t have the time to invest in buffing and bolting race tires and I
have heard it takes about 20 hours per tire.
For a set of six that would be a months’ worth of afternoons in the
shop. The Black Rocket tires address
that concern but trade them for another, cost.
The tires are $260-$300 each (dependent on size). For the 13” size we would be able to use on Chevettes,
the cost should be in the middle of that range.
I have discussed with Mike Elhard the option to bring these tires in for
any chevette racers interested in running these tires and he has graciously
agreed to import them for us through his racing business.
Here is how it will work:
Chevettes will be encouraged to run in THREE classes for the 2015/2016 season.
CH-C Chevette Classic
– This is the traditional CH class and the current spec tires (Hankook I-pikes) and rules are
CH-R Chevette Rubber –
This is the existing rubber to ice class Chevettes have also been running in.
CH-S Chevette Stud –
This is the new opportunity to run Black Rocket studded tires in the Race Stud Class.
The Chevette run groups will be scored separately in
the CH-R and CH-S classes. We will award
a trophy to the top finisher in these two classes. CH-C will run seperatly as it always has.
(Additional races at no cost)
NASCC has agreed to waive the class fees for anyone
racing in the Chevette-Stud class for the 2014/2015 season! If
you are interested in getting on the list for tires please vote at www.chevettesonice.ca
and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your
contact info so I can advise you on final price and delivery for the Black
I hope this new racing experience will inspire a
renewed interest in Chevette ice racing.
We know there are a few older race cars out there that have been put
away due to dwindling car counts over the last few years. This is the year to get back out there! Here is some food for thought:
· You can run three classes and
get seat time like never before!
You and two of your buddies can
share one car and each run a class!
If you don’t like the spec
tires or rule restrictions go rubber and run your blizzaks!
If you don’t like the spec
tires or rule restrictions go wild with the mods and run Black Rockets!
The idea here is to open things up to have some fun for
the remainder of the of the Chevette ice racing era. If you ever wanted to run a header, race cam,
etc., you can now do that in two classes!
If we can get the existing race cars out there, we see more motivation
for new racers to build cars for next season.
I know there are not many Chevettes on the market, but if someone is
serious about building a new car email me and I can steer you to some
opportunities. I can also help out with
cage kits to get you started.
P.S. If anyone has Chevettes, caged or not for
sale, email me and I will post them in the website.
