but if u are A main driver yes you need to update to keep winning

but if u just run back and forth ......why u need a latest car?
Is it about winning or having fun? Everything is not about winning. Yes it is nice to win everyone once in a while but it is about having FUN. It doesnt matter what you get out of it. Who cares it is just a $1 plaque what is fun is earning the plaque. And to be competitive you usually need the newer equipment.

i promise you i AM NOT in the finacial position. I just make sacrifices. Sacrifices that drive my wife nutts. I just QUIT smoking to have more money to buy the stuff i need. And lately all the money i can spend on this hobby has been going to race fee's and fuel. I built all my stuff i piece at the time. I buy my spares of ebay and i take care of my stuff.
