  1. In Topic: Question for Engine Builders

    Posted 2 Oct 2018

    Unhooking the cars would save me a lot of money. I used to do great on 450HP motors because that's what the tire could handle. Now I need to build another 600+HP motor if I want to keep racing on the tire we currently use. I like the RPM chip concept, however I believe that if we did it with tires, then we wouldn't have reason to add any rules. Problem is nobody wants to actually have to drive the racecar anymore...Racers want a car that's extra hooked up...and that's really the #1 thing that's hurting us.... Groups of drivers pushing for opened up rules, and they cast out anyone who doesn't agree with them... It's easy to see why we are where we are. Everything is controlled by a group of people who all think the same way and it's very counter-productive to where we actually need to go.

    Have a great day.

  2. In Topic: UMP testing CT525 crate

    Posted 19 Jan 2018

    IDK about dirt, but 525 hp in an asphalt mod, on our local tracks....would be about enough power to negate the advantage of trying to cheat by modifying it. I like that. I dislike underpowered crate motors where a little bit of cheatwork can be hooked up to make real speed. Do these crate option organizations and tracks running nowadays take fuel samples like they should?

    This "group" isn't going to do anything besides cost us all more money. I cannot support it. Nobody who is trying to race on a budget should support it. Vocalize your concerns or forever keep silent.

    If you don't want mods to go the route of the outlaw latemodel, call your local track and let them know where you stand. Tell them that you need a rules package that stops the transition to fenderless latemodels, and resets things to the way they would be without all these latemodel drivers bringing in their fancy parts. Just because you had them laying around, does not make them free.... It does not cost you "nothing" to use them. Someone paid for them new at one point, and every time they break, they will cost that amount AGAIN.

    I tried to stick up for us all, but unfortunately I failed. Maybe someone else can do better, but it's like a rabbit going against a pack of wolves, and I don't have the ability to stay as calm as I used to when I get attacked from multiple angles, or when the leader guy makes several inflammatory remarks to me.
