Based on the success of the Vintage Trans Am (VTA) series that we've been running for the last few seasons, the Vintage Super Cars (VSC) takes things to the next level. A better power to weight ratio combined with wider tires and a better aero package means these cars handle better and are faster in almost all areas then the VTA cars. Using some of the world's first Super Cars, this class replicates the SCCA A-Prod and Le Mans type racers from the 60s and 70s with a couple of 80s cars thrown in for fun.

I added the following car to the VSC ranks and added it to the NARM club garage last night.

VSC: 1968 Ferrari 365 GTB/4
Starting PI: C415
Filter: Race
Manifold: Race
Exhaust: Race
Camshaft: Sport

Front Tire Width: 245/60/15
Rear Tire Width: 265/55/15
Wheels: Any

Rear Wing: Forza Race Rear Wing

A Final Drive setting of 3.75 is recommended

Final Numbers:
Final PI: S614 +/-5 (depending on wheel choice)
Speed: 6.6
Handling: 6.2
Acceleration: 8.4
Launch: 7.9
Braking: 6.7
HP: 474
Torque: 400
Weight: 2931

I also tried to get the '84 Ferrari GTO and '81 BMW M1 aligned with this class, but as built they are just too fast. There aren't enough similar cars to create a VSC+ class, so I'll leave these out for now, but the five cars we have in the VSC class are pretty fun to drive. ;)

Possibility of any alphas, early jags, or tvr's in there?

I suppose you could make an agrument for the E-Type Jaguar, but not for anything else. No Alpha's seem to fit, unless I'm missing something. The oldest TVR is 1998 so that won't work. If you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know and I'll take a look.
