Quote from: LeMonsWe love ghettocharged LeMons racers, of course, but such a setup can have a deleterious effect on reliability.
QuoteTo get the Curse with a perceived cheaty car requires that the car dominate during Saturday (i.e., sit in the top 5 of the standings and be way faster than everything else). We've given big penalty laps to protect such cars in the past (e.g., the SR20DET-powered Sentra in Texas), but the reality is that a Neon or RX-7 team stacked with great drivers is always going to blow away a super-cheaty car with average drivers.A good theme will probably protect just about any car, however high its Perceived Cheatism Factor (PCF) may be, so the Plyborghini approach is indeed a good one.
QuoteWe definitely have an order of preference for cars we like to see. This varies according to which LeMons HQ perpetrator you ask; for me it goes like:1. Ridiculous engineering monstrosities (crazy engine swaps, dual engines, quad-ghettocharging, motorcycle power, etc)2. Awesomely executed rolling sculptures that still get around the track pretty well (Wienermobile, Eyesore CRX & Miata, Prickstine, Bavarian Ranchero, etc)3. Cars that never, ever belonged on a race track (Cadillac Eldorado, Renault Le Car, Lexus LS400, Plymouth Voyager, '62 Fleetwood, etc)4. Putatively sporty cars that can be relied on to blow up early and often (any turbocharged Chrysler/Mitsubishi product, Fiats, MGs, etc)(insert many more categories here)100. Fast, late-model cars that let the team get lots of high-speed seat time.
QuoteIf an obviously cheaty car is:nowhere near the top 10ORpenalized out of contentionORnot being driven in a prickish mannerIt won't get my curse vote. Don't care what it is.
QuoteAt least for the first couple races; in LeMons, you're guilty until your incompetence as a team prove you innocent.
