Yeah, I wasn't trying to say otherwise.

Well it's easy to go slower. If 17.5 gets too fast, go to a 21.5.

Saying that the motors won't handle the power the speed controls are putting out is redundant. Technology helps and kills this hobby. Motors will only be able to handle more and more load from here on out.

Definately a question from the vegas race. Simple answer is. If Scotty knew about it which he most likely did not than he should have ruled that they are legal. Why because for over 25 years teams have been running prototype speed controls with just shrink wrap on them, testing and tuning at big races. If he did not want anything like that at his race, he would have stated that previous to the race. Same thing at other big races. Great race hate to see stuff like this start up.

Also, I would like to add that every manufacturer doing what Tekin did will only make it worse with the "team-only-profiles".

Yep until someone figures out how to make those just as fast and 17.5 is now??? Then we'll have a thread about how things are too fast.

Funny they say history repeats itself, the guy who said that must have raced RC cars. LOL

I just don't buy that. Yeah the team guys will have it first since they can't have the general public blowing up motors with experimental profiles but once it's figured out, it goes public. Why? Because you want to sell more speedos. The best way to sell a speedo is to be faster than the competition. If you are holding on to a secret team profile while the public one isn't as good, the privateers will buy something else.

The manufacturer doesn't care if it's one of his team guys or a privateer that wins, as long as it's his speedo in the car.

Its a discussion, and no body has made insults. No reason to.

Not yet, but I fear it's headed there.
