New Cyclone S no body for $118

In that case I dont blame you for wanting to go that way. The RDX phi that I have seen are not cheap by any means. But if you can get one then why not.

The S is still a great car for the money. Especially among brand new stuff.

Nothing confirmed yet (the indoor season is just starting!), but I would say there is a great chance of another USVTA Nats happening again in the early spring of 2009.

Nothing complicatedójust a couple of minor clarifications for guys who read a little too deeply into the rules for the sake of stretching the boundaries of fair play.

No racing for me for a little while yet. Still outdoor drag racing yet to be had before going indoors.

Somewhere back in the spider web encrusted corner of my mind thinks Chrysler was involved with AMC. You may have to talk to Ford about the Edsel.

Have the rules been revamped on the 21.5BL for other Vendors that are Roar approved.

No, at this point there are NO 21.5 motors that are ROAR approved, which is why there is a one-motor format in our rules at this point. Until ROAR starts regulating 21.5 motors (probably for oval racing, if at all), there will NOT be any change to these rules for the USVTA.

Looks like Doug beat me to it.

Anyhow not pushing for more choices, but how do you guys think that would work out with different manufacturers and the FDR restriction. Reading some threads about these motors, some like the timing down and throw more gear at it, some like the timing up. With the FDR restriction will that give one an advantage over another or since they aren't geared to their max potential would it even matter? Guess I don't know.
