Rules for BWA?

Post by 63CorvairSplit » Mon Apr 29, 2013 8:43 pm

Hi - the buses with attitude website seems to be down - what are the rules regarding engine choice?

I can see watercooled lumps are excluded - i have an aircooled flat 6 corvair motor in my bus - would this qualify or does it have to be vw?

cheers, mike

Im not to sure, check with rikki or another bwa member? Do you think you will qualify? I wish mine would do a sub 18 quarter! More like a 27 for me, good luck.hope you get there.

Yep - aircooled, flat 4 only - unless your corvair engine is one of the turbo ones then I doubt it'll have the go to qualify anyway - doesn't stop you trying to run that sub 18 for your own satisfaction however :wink:

I might give out a go at some point - it'd be interesting to see how it does anyway :-)

Go for it mate its great fun! I think VW flat four only for BWA but just go for the sub 18 in any RWYB. :)
