You just have to experiment with cars and builds.

Quite a few cars have decent handling with right around 500 HP and 2800 lbs

How are you getting both max power and minimum weight? I can't seem to get a car to 500 HP under the rules without making it a lead sled. lol

Haha. I'm the dude whose gonna try to do that. Been messing with builds and I can't seem to get the car to 2800 lbs and 500 HP and max width rear tires without driving my PI up into the 720s. I have determined either I have no clue what I'm doing (most likely) or Harmonic and Diablo are using some foul sorcery. lol

69 firebird maxed out 500hp, 2800lb and full handling upgrades. Most builds will run the 6.2 swap. Avoid cams, clutch, flywheel and uses street trans.

Word. I think it was just the car I was trying to use. Tried those things on a '79 camaro and couldn't make it happen. I had to search for ways to add weight to the firebird. Thanks for the tip.

It's a reward car of some sort. I think it was for a Rivals event but I'm not 100% sure.

Just double checking here - 1964 mustang is not on the approved list, but as long as it's under 500hp, and over 2800, we're good, right?

The reason it was off the list is it was impossible to hit 675PI, 500HP and 2800 Lbs at the same time. How far off 675 is your build?

The best build I could make with the '65 Mustang was 662 PI, and I'm not sure it would fit in a lobby - it's exactly 500 HP and 2800 lbs.

Mine was 662 or 664, but 499hp and 2804 lbs. Doesn't hit that 675PI, but the rules state that I can self penalize.

I guess you can. I'll add the car, but be warned that it may not be very competitive in a very competitive field.
