it seems like there are a few racer's that are much quicker then most of the field

thats racing in any class...fast guys are faster than the rest

I thought that going to 25.5 was going to make everything closer for all racers now

VTA is closer...and has grown since the Sept 2010 rule change(25.5)...its about setup and driver, and small things like bearings and FDR/timming make a difference

maybe my motor is just bad but I have tried gearing from 4.00 down to 3.40 and still it seems I'm not even close

maybe, and possible...ask one of the fast guys to swap motors and see what happens

also we had an incident this weekend where a driver put the wrong stator in his ballistic and was running a 21.5 why would we pick a motor that can be tampered with.

thats not an accident..thats cheating...the Novak 21.5 has a green stator, not char gray

I know I'm not the best driver but when you get lapped and your running clean laps not hitting anything it makes me wonder.

I lap ppl all the time...but Im not cheating and dont have any special Mojo..its more driver...Ive got guys at my track whom cars are faster than mine...but dont beat me. And if you are running clean laps and feel like something a miss, ask one of your fast guys to drive your car and vise verse

I wasn't the only one complaining about not having enougf speed .I never
had a problem when we ran 21.5 .


I remember going to Cincy for the Grand Prix, and feeling the same way....but after looking at the fast guys on the straight, I noticed my car was slow...but only because my rear toe was too much...I made the rear wheels straight and the slowness was gone...went from the B to 5th in the A...with one adjustment...and that was 21.5...same thing can happen in 25.5 with different setups...
