Personally, I'd love to see a modern Camaro/Mustang/challenger/charger series with limited or spec modifications. Maybe SI will grow into that... dunno. But CMC is prob never going to be at those power levels as it totally changes everything, especially cost.
I think there's more opportunity to dumb down 2005+ cars than trying to upgrade 30 year old fox/3rd gens. What about new v6 cars? They're at 300/280... just saying.
I think 50 rwhp is all it would take, but you are right, it'll add cost. I just hope we can keep CMC alive.
The new V6 cars is a very good idea. Those cars are really cheap and might actually handle better with less weight up front. If they can get them light enough, those cars might actually run well with us.
I don't think it was power as much as it was handling. I would have liked to see us open up rules to the older cars to make them handle better. I don't know what would be cost effective, but I'm sure there are options.
