I'm sure you just club race so you don't know the real costs of racing. Sometimes a gallon only lasts one two day event, so you have to stock up on cases of fuel. At $100-120 a case, fuel is not cheap. Then stocking up on parts that wear normally ain't cheap either.

Show me where at A-Main you can get 30% fuel for $80.

So you never replace clutch shoes, or do regular maintenance on your car?

What classes do you run at a race and how often do you race??

Racing two classes really eats up a lot of fuel. Between my brother and me, a gallon lasts about 1 two day event including practice. Racing 4 classes is even harder on fuel.

if your only doing one class of 1/8 it should last a bit long if u buy a case.
