They even had a rule that if you bought a EPA excemt bike, you could not sell it for 5 years.....even if you died.....you family coulb not sell it. No shit!!! I am not kidding.

My point.....lets keep this on the low down! LOL

That's pretty fugged up man! They KNOW that just ONE volcano eruption pollutes far more than a whole lifetime of a fleet of cars (much-less a motorcycle!)

Gov. control over EVERY aspect of our lives is the plan.

Therefore I say' "FUGG THE GOVERNMENT!!"

No, CRCRC usually has the doors open or fan to pull out as much smoke as possible. The unknown is the carbon monoxide.

Brain Damage and lung disease will come first. My buddies v-spec actually makes my eyes tear up and my nose burns inside or out if I am close to it tuning.

DOnt worry about looking cool. When in doubt grab a mask. Harbor freight sells a dual carbon cartridge unit for less than 20. You will see the pros wearing one indoors and they drive alot better than us.



yea but who wants to ware a mask while racing indoors, i much rather just race a electric car.

It is very much like what your mum said about masturbation, if you do it too often you will go blind...

i think all the buggy grips and stuff that we use on our tires at our indoor track is the worst. i always spray my tires outside the pit area and it kinda ticks me off when i c someone doing it in the pit area lol.

Govt. must 've already looked in it since funny cars usually run ony 8590% nitromethane with 1015% methanol. They normally burn more than a couple of gallons just for the 1/4 mile run. And that surely is televised, so I'm not worried about our little hobby cars at all
