Ditto on the decision. I was coming whatever decision Scotty made. I'm sure he was going to get grief on ANY decision he was going to make! Lets just move on and if your coming to the race, make the best of it. Good times, good people and good racing. Scotty always puts on a fantastic race. If your not coming to the race then it's your loss.

I understand your stuck between a rock and a hard place Scotty. These are tough times, and there is really no right answer to the problems at hand..

hrrm..
Dustin- I ran the same car,motor,speedo in both classes last friday with V200 against V203 cars, you would be surprised. The car was capable but the the driver was not

I don't quite understand why the MMP would not be allowed in VTA or Stock when you can set the timing to zero and its the same speed as anything on the market or slower. You can hear the difference if there was timing added.

I've been running the MMP with zero timing against GTB's at our local track for the last 4 weeks and there the same speed. Car setup, gearing, and driving are the only things make one car faster than the other.

I guess I'm lucky I brought a second Tekin with me that I can put 200 FW in and run in VTA.

And all those people said Brushless was better, cheaper and more equal.



Good luck to all that attend.

Yep, nothing Trackside needs more than a little more cowbell!

Well there are well over 100 pit spaces with names on them and most will run two classes or more. So, whatever.

Guys, Scotty made the right decission for his race. It's fair and provides a class that EVERYONE can compete equally in. Prior to this it was my understanding that some speedos would simply not be allowed at all. This seperation will allow all brands a chance to compete.

It's one thing to point out a problem, it's an entirely different thing to point out a solution(s).

If you have the "IDEA" to fix this please bring it up, there are a lot of people willing to listen.

Scotty you've got my support!

Import your just trolling , why the hate? Trackside has a great program with a director, that looks at all angles of the race program. His bread and butter is the Joe Blows like me. He wants a competative race
I am sure I can go on , but I know its not worth it with you. The internet is amazing and the liquid courage it allows people now a days.
