      @MZ3AUTOXR SCCA puts a box around each cone. Rule is: Knock it over - two seconds Move it out of the box but still standing - 2 seconds Move it, but it stays standing and any part of the base is touching the box - No Penalty I have seen a formula car kick a cone up in the air and have it land standing in the box.

    Gearheadian is definitely one of my favorite English dialects...right up there with TheWirese and Deadwoodian.

    How would a Neon or NG900/9-3 go in this kind of stuff? The other I can think of is a mid 90's Lancer.

      Back in the day when Chrysler was paying some serious contingency money (upwards of $10K for an overall Pro Solo season championship.) it was not unusual to see 20-30 Neons at National Level events. Even now, if you could find a decent DOHC first gen ACR, you could probably do fairly well in it at the local level and if you're good enough, at the National level in SCCA events. Non-turbo Lancers run in the same class as normally aspirated Mini's, Mazda3's, SVT Focus, and others. In other words, they are good trophy fodder.
