Teching motors at a Sunday morning club race? The fact that that even occurred to you is indicative of some of TC racing's problems. I don't see why you brought up the other stuff.
I'm suggesting that ROAR and other sanctioning bodies test these potential Stock-BL motors on the track to ensure that they aren't too fast. If they are too fast, don't allow them to be a 'legal' Stock-BL motor.

Just to save some time there are also problems with:
1. Speed control limited RPM or Watt output - How do you tech it? Are the speedos capable maintaing close tolerances in power out put? How are speedos calibrated? How do you stop cheaters?
This all ends up being too technical expensive to tech. And its too easy to cheat.
2. Power limiting devises - They will have to be as big as a speedo to handle the power dissipation. Who want to buy a $150 part that slows you car down? How do you tech it? Are these units capable maintaing close tolerances in power out put? How are they calibrated? How do you stop cheaters?
This is why we have used construction as the power limiting factors in motors for the last 40 years.
When someone is intent on excelling in an otherwise laudable manner, does he not desire to inflict pain on others by means of his exalted status and enjoy the envy he arouses? Is there not an anticipated delight in an artist's ability to defeat his artistic rivals, which heightens his euphoria in creation?
