    Is four wheel drive legal in BM?

    I like the D4 but the 68" wheelbase is too short.

    I can't find anything on all wheel drive. Would be a big help to get 430hp to the ground. The D1 is 80in, the min for B mod.

    All cars in BMod must be built to the GCR (plus Solo overrides) except:

    18.2 SPORTS RACERS
    Closed wheel vehicles are referred to as Sports Racers and are assigned
    to Modified classes A, B, and C (AM, BM, and CM). AM vehicles
    do not have to comply with any Club Racing GCR, while BM and CM
    vehicles must comply with the current year GCR. The competitor must
    indicate on his entry form to which set of specifications that the car is
    prepared.
    Vehicles that qualify as Sports Racers are those listed in the GCR
    SRCS, dune buggies, and production-based automobiles whether or
    not from Appendix A.
    Dune buggies and DM/EM cars are allowed in BM at Club Racing ASR,
    CSR, and DSR engine and weight rules as long as they do not exceed
    the DM/EM aero rule allowances and with the following noted specifics: ...

    18.4 SPECIALS
    Cars not otherwise classified which meet the following minimum specifications
    are considered as Specials and are assigned to Modified class A (AM). ...

    Mark,

    You are right, I don't think the Solo Rules say anything about the drivetrain layout.  For that info, you  have to go to the GCR.  From the 2015 Solo Rules:

    ---------------------

    "B Modified (BM)

    All Formula Cars or Sports Racers compliant under the 2013 Club Racing

    GCR, unless specifically classed elsewhere, with the following exceptions:"

    ----------------------

    The 2013 Formula Atlantic, Formula S and ASR rules state this:

    --------------------

         "Power shall not be applied to more than two (2) wheels."

    ------------------------

    The 2013 F1000 and S2000 rules state this:

    -----------------------

         "8. Transmission/Final Drive
                 A. Rear wheel drive only is permitted."

    -----------------------

    So far, I have not been able to find anything under CSR/DSR in regards to the driven wheels.

    In any case, $150k for a car would be an expensive ticket into the class.  If 2-wheel drive only is allowed, the 8" wide wheels would require an upgrade to something a little wider.

    I have been following the work of Dave Palatov for several years now.  He has designed and built some nice and interesting cars.

    Clements,  I thought I saw the 4 wd restriction somewhere.  I really liked the long, FF like, suspension arms on the Palatov and I figured all wheel drive would be needed to deal with so much power in such a small package.  Maybe in A mod it would work.
