2018 ESR Trans Am Series Car Classification

Image

1968 Chevy Camaro "Penske" - High top speed, great torque, good overall grip, bit understeery, a little down on braking power, 2013 T/A champion.

Image

1970 Chevy Camaro Z/28 - Good handling but with inherent low speed off-throttle understeer but no major quirks, decent gear selection, poor brake cooling leads to the worst brake fade of the class, durable engine, on the slow side as far as acceleration but gains on longer straights with the highest top speed of the class. 2016 T/A champion.

Image

1971 AMC Javelin - lowest top speed, great torque, excellent mid-corner grip, good overall balance, easy to throw around, bit down on braking power, new gears and rev limit fix for 2015 made this perhaps the best all around car on the track. 2017 T/A champion.

Image

1970 Dodge Challenger - Decent top speed, high-revving, best braking of the group, quick turn-in, loose under throttle. Not a single driver in the history of the Sunday Trans Am championship series but Mike Campbell won with it during the 2013 Tony Rust exhibition race. Well overdue for some appreciation and success.

Image

1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 - quickest acceleration and high top speed under race conditions, strong but difficult to exploit brakes, good exit grip, default set needs lots of work, worst understeer in the class, great gear selection, pleasing engine howl, most wins in 2013 with 2014 T/A champ Rich Coffey at the wheel who was in contention for the championship until he missed a race weekend.

Image

1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda - Stable, high top speed, good brakes, limited gear selection, was a contender in 2013 and 2015.

Image

1970 Pontiac Firebird - Chassis and gearbox are identical to the '70 Camaro Z/28, specs out with a little less power but at least 500 more revs seem to even it out, few drivers but Bojan Mikic ("Kiby") dominated at many tracks with a slower version and Dave Hutton was very competitive with it in 2016.

I'm kind of in the same boat Tom. I'll test the other cars once again like always, but more then likely I'll be in the '68 Camaro again. :roll:

I'm running my car from a couple of seasons ago:

AMC Javelin (#250 Garmin/Catalinbread GBR)

As usual, I'll be an inconsistent starter.

I'm going to try to make some races (and not be a rolling hazard).
I'll just take the Dan Gurney AAR Cuda #48. No need for a custom skin.
Sorry I had to bail last night at the last minute...
