All cars must now run Rear Wheel Drive only. Simulated 4 speed transmissions allowed (must make engine rev sounds). Simulated blown engines with real smoke and oil after the 4th marshalled crash will leak out of your car.

Smoke blows out of them now and then anyway. It's always bad news.

Rule changes have typically been to adapt to new technology or to improve parity. All new battery/motor combinations introduced were to allow brushless and Lipo technology into a class that was originally 4 cell/ 27 turn. The driver figure rule is aggravating to some but loved by others. Ever since the change to the current rule set the class has been very consistent and stable, even if some do not care for the options available. There has always been pressure to allow motors and speedo's, but that is just racers barking their wishes to the establishment. Recently there has been growing concern over available speed controls and I can only imagine that a rule change would be related to that concern. I just don't see the class as needing anything else.

20 minute mains w/ pit stops for tire changes......no pit crew. Get down from the drivers stand, change all 4 tires, climb back up and DRIVE.

We already do that in our club VTA races. Randy Novak came up with that idea 10 months ago.

That is great. I really like racing in longer mains.
