Anyone using these rules? Two tracks in Our area are considering adopting these rules. Any comments, loopholes, etc.

I run at a couple of different tracks that run Wissota Super Stocks. Overall, I think its a pretty good class. We get good car counts and it is very competitive. I like the chassis rules - its a good step up from street stocks but with less motor than the modifieds.

In my opinion, the problem with this class happened when Wissota did away with the engine claim rule and opened up the tranny rules. After that a lot of guys around here went and got all of the high dollar stuff. Now, to field a Super Stock that is capable of winning a guy has to ante up a lot of $$. I ran a Super and decided it wasn't anymore expensive to go to a modified. In fact, I know many of the Supers around here have much more $$ into their cars than I have in my mod.

So, I like the cars but I think Wissota has let the drive train costs get completely out of control. But, when was the last time Wissota made a rule to save a driver $$ - I guess thats another argument for another day.

Thanks for the reply. After reading the rules on the rear suspension I am a little confused. Can you enlighten me as to what is legal. Thanks

You can run leafs, stock location type 4 links or a solid 3 links. The 3 or 4 link must be with solid bars - they can be aluminum swedge tubes & heims. Rear coil spring mounts must be solid and on the axel tube or in front of it - no bird cages, sliders, coil overs. I believe next year they are allowing multiple hole mounts which was not previously allowed.

If you are reading the rules on line I believe it does not show the diagram of how the 3 link must be built. Get an actual copy of the rule book and it will have pictures and measurements.

The fast boys around here seem to be running the 3 links although there have been some leaf cars that have had good success. If I was interested in this class I think I would buy a car first - used or from some of the chassis manufacturers that are having a lot of success - Brunette, Specialty Fabricating, Lou Fegers, etc.

If you do decide to go with this class, try to get a hold of a Brunette chassis. Brunette seems to be the dominant car at all of our tracks (Rice Lake, Menominee, Eagle Valley). I hace heard nothing but good things about the cars and Gordy (brunette) is always more than happy to help you out with setups and stuff.

I have a super now and I want to move the spring to the link (swingarm) on the driver side and mount it on top of the housing on the pass side, is that legal, I have yet to see it done and, I looked at about 20 cars at the stampede and I will look at more cars this week in alex.
