    Engine Tech seems to be the biggest issue with tracks running U6SA rules , Adding or taking away visual parts does not do a thing without engine tech. If tracks arent going to tech, They should be a run what you brung and not be shown as a U6SA ....... Mid west tracks thrive because you can take a decent motor there and run with them due to smaller tracks.

    Once you take the edges off a hoosier in the harder compound they are junk unless you grind and re groove them, a mate uses A/R and he doesn't touch his tyres till they are bald, he seen a massive gain in grip over the hoosier too, I found running the softer hoosier I wouldn't hafto touch the tyre till it was bald, effectively I am getting the same tyre life from the soft compound to the hard compound because I am constantly reviving the hard compound tyre, whereas the top dollar teams just mount new tyres all the time, I guess every track will be different on tyres but I have not seen the gain or saved any money since we went to the control tyre

    After years of running harder tires I am still lost as to why people are against harder tires. Perhaps there is a lack of understanding? The bottom line is that more races per tire is like extra $$ in your payout each night. Not really sure why people like burning up their hard earned cash. I understand when there is no minimum then you need to bolt on softer tires to be competitive with others with soft tires.
    Surely the Speedweek tire rules exposed enough people to put the uninformed theories to rest.

    GVAT defitlney not in favor of spec tire, it could be left up to track if wanted to be.

    I agree, I am not for the spec tire U6SA rule either. I am however in favor of some tracks, like Linda's going to the spec tire. That would save a ton of money for the racers that race there.

    I am not one for the spec tire rule but if it is voted in then some consideration needs to be made for the guys that currently have other compound RR.
    What would you do with the new RR you currently have?

I think there has been a lot of educating over the past few years of what is available to racers if they should desire to go "against the normal".
    well said

    i agree zack and i dont see someone going that route but i feel the general vote will aim to keep that because they will think someone would.... law of averages lol

    I don't think we want to start listing things that are legal. That gets away from the whole philosophy of the rules being... "if it doesn't say you can't, then you can".

    I get what you are saying PJ... but I feel the rules will be alright. If someone (I'm guessing these people would be very few and far between) wants to spend the money to have a custom, one off, machined billet tb's to race for a weekly average of around $300 to win... then go for it. I don't foresee many people going that route though. Just my opinion... I may be wrong.

    I get that.... but in reality the no after market tb's rule was geared to stop people from some all out custom machining billet tb's.... so rather then group them why not make an exception to mass produced stuff that any guy could buy on the market not a one off custom deal.....

    The rules are written as a list of things that can not be done. Everything else can be done.

    I agree that stock appearing is vague. Hopefully that will go away.

    MFI is legal, it is the after market throttle bodies rule that needs to go away. Once that goes away, then the Engler setup will be legal.

    Why wouldn't you have an individual vote allowing MFI with examples such as off the shelf such as engler kinsler and hilborne?

    and is there not a proposal for allowing aftermarket ecu's (not just removing the term but still keep stock appearing which leaves it open to opinion---- "such as its black and its plastic and has 2 plugs on it ---- looks stock appearing to me" .......vague rules open the door for arguments when someone wants to complain
