i won point series though with a out the box mt-12 proving its not engine but consistancy that wins point series it didnt hurt the track was kinda small either
small tracks I agree - engine can't make a huge difference if you're never even hitting second gear. IN memphis we run on a tiny 115X60 foot electric track and for a good part of the year cvr's could beat 5 ports. And from what I see a good bit of racers are losing power in the tuning and engine/pipe combo's more than anything.
But still, there are times when a slew of racers are as good tuners and are as good drivers racing on a decent track and then with the rules the way they are now, the cheese dropped on some of these engines creates imbalances.
Now i'm the first one there to drop 300+ on an engine, but I can see that not everyone wants to do that and it discourages those who can't. And you have to spend about that much to get something appreciably faster than a box-stock mt12.
There are some very, very good electric drivers that will hardly EVER stay on the same lap with factory boyz solely because of the powerplant. Even in club racing there are some mediocre electric drivers that always run at the front - mainly because of their $$$ spent on power plant.
Nitro shouldn't go there...
Its on my list of things to do to email R.Wilson. Hopefully we all will follow through and make a difference.
