I do like the idea of having a 'cheap' class for the new guys to get into, especially if there is a motor to match. Tires last longer, speeds are slower, etc. I would have to imagine the 2wd cars of today handle much better than the 2wd cars of 10+ years ago.
If you are interested in a cheap motor, there is a Dynamite .28 that our local club uses for a sportsman class, the engine is 149 dollars and is the only engine allowed.
I think there are a few clubs in the US that use this engine too.

...why buy a Dynamite (kaboom) when for a few bucks more you could run a 'rossi.........

Coupla questions as the build nears completion and forgive me if this first one is stupid - it's very late right now.

Why does my brake cam lift out?

What is a good starter box for this car?

Eswlfse, make sure that the brake pad is up against it.You want the cams flat side facing the pad. Maybe take a picture of it and send it to me or put it up here so we can see what you have going on.
Starter box I have always had great luck with the mugen box.

Ha! I had to remove the rotor to turn it because I was getting some pulsation in my brakes and when I reinstalled it I managed to get both brake pads on the inboard side.

Found another possible problem with my first Centax install. Flywheel went on without a washer behind the collet per the instructions. Measured the clearances and installed 2.2mm of shims behind the clutch bell but then had nothing left for the thrust bearing. I ended up having to remove .2 from behind the clutch bell to get the .1 clearance for the thrust bearing???

It's ok to put a washer between the collet and front engine bearing.

As for shims between the inside clutchbell bearing and spring nut, put the thick shim provided in the kit, and install only as many thin shims needed to prevent the clutchbell from rubbing against the clutchpad. Re-check after break-in.

Thanks Garen.

Coupla more questions....The offset on my throttle pushrod would have to be huge setup per the instructions with the pivot/slide block mounted under the bellcrank - so I moved it to the top with a 1mm nylon washer spacer. Is there any way to move the ball on the carb to the bottom instead?

Also - on the front suspension do the shocks serve as the downstops? At 2mm my steering tie rods are hitting the plastic?

The rear downstops are a treat to access. Is anyone grinding a clearance notch in the upper A-arm?
