In the GCR in the EP list of cars it states that the 94-98 V6 Mustangs weight should be @ 2700 lbs BUT in ITS the same car should be @2478. I thought by going to production the cars would get lighter in weight. Could this be a miss print? Reason I ask is i also have an ITB Mustang that I'm thinking of going to convert to FP and that weight is @ 2200 lbs. Thoughts?

If nobody runs one in Prod, then the ad-hoc and CB don’t get around to reviewing the weights all that often. Ask for a weight reduction parallel to other ITB to EP cars. Ie....car X is Y pounds in ITB but its Z pounds in EP for an A% difference....do that for a few cars and you’ll have a descent shot at a realistic weight. Presented with data, the CB is usually pretty open about adjusting a weight that hasn’t been checked in several years.

It does not automatically follow that cars get lighter when they move to Production; that is a fallacy.

And, generally, cars prepped to Production regs are allowed a higher modification level than they are in Improved Touring (compression, cams, and induction restrictions, for example). So they will be faster in Production.

It doesn't hurt to request a review of the cars' specs. But don't expect miracles...

Who would I write the review to? Would really like for them to take a look at it.

I am curious as to how light you can get your ITB car. It has a 3065 curb weight. I wouldn't expect that you could get it down to 2700 with driver

Just want to point out that two completely different cars/classifications were being talked about in the original post...

First lets correct it Kevin you are correct,
my present car is 79-93 Mustang and in ITB it should be 2550 and in FP 2200.
future build is 94-98 Mustang and in ITS it should be 2470 and in EP 2700. My original question was why the weight gain maybe they need to take a look at the tech line.

Tim, thank you for the link will send letter asap.

The 94-98 V6 Mustang was put into EP not that long ago, and with no additional reasoning for why the car shouldn't weigh what it's currently classified at, other than what its ITS weight is, there's little chance it gets changed. Given the stock specs of that car/engine, and considering the specs and modifications it would be allowed to do in EP trim, it is expected to make rather substantial gains. I know that there is currently an EP version of an engine being prepped right now, and I'll be interested to hear how it does. That's the best way to make a change happen, provide some real data. No one wants dud spec lines, but there also needs to be some sort of substantiated proof for why a change is warranted. It would be a cool addition to the class.

It’s only 70lbs heavier than my s2000 with a 2.2 liter!
