Unless they specifically outline it or tech for it, it falls into a grey area that some can use, others cannot.

Any modification not called out specifically in these rules is not legal.

So drinking jolt cola and snorting a starbucks coffee would be illegal. I would be highly modified after that. . .Lets hope they don't start running a blood sugar test.

I agree thats why I suggested installing the motor right before your race so that there's no funny business and after that race you get a completely different motor. Kinda like the way Scotty and the boys did it except The would have to come up to pretech two races before they get a motor then they put there pinion on it right at the tech table it gets installed and then soldier it or have connectors. And if your running late you don't race. pretty simple especially for big races. Obviously club races are different you run what you brung.

Thanks

JAMES DO YOU HAVE ANY VIDEO HOW TO TEACH YOUR TECHNIQUES???

BECAUSE AS FAR AS I KNOW ITS NOT CHEATING BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T OPEN THE MOTOR. AS FAR AS CRIMPING AND EPOXY IS CONCERNED.

Y'all have a GREAT NEW YEAR and kick some butt in your next races.
Let's do something productive and start brainstorming on this one little teaser.

The motor was dropped on the work bench. What could have happened that made it perform better?

1. Did the impact of the fall "broke" the motor in?


Hey Granpa, is there anything special on the workbench when this happened? Any more clues?
