It is cheating - Period, and has been protested here locally a couple times, one of which by myself. Its not hard to follow rules... I do think offroad you can get away with more, however that is not an invitation to cheat or "bend" the rules as they are written (by gas racers)

Are you sure he is sloting them and not just getting them that way? I have an old P2K2 from when they first came out that is setup with standard spring posts but the brush hood is slotted on both sides and appears to have been made that way. At least it doesn't look cut to me anyway. Why would he bother to slot both sides of a brush hood on a standard sprung motor?

Just curious...I personally am not very familiar with what brush hoods are made from any of the manufacturers or how they are made.

He slots them, I know this for a fact, I have asked him in person when he was here for a race.
