Some people could drive a shoe box better.As the guy above said they will never have everything equal. face it some people can just drive better. You can put all the rules down you want and there will always be a better driver. That is just the way it is.Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Basically a sealed spec motor. Motors would have timing preset with a motor tool ( motolyzer ect. ) by the track and collected weekly and rotated so that no racer ran the same motor every week. Batteries are a different dilemma.. maybe a max milliamp of 6500 but charging should be dictated by track rules based on safety. Add in a spec tire ..usually dictated by the track and I think that's as close to spec racing as we can get. I think this would only work on a local level and requires a strong club or donation from a manufacture 20-30 motors would not be cheap. The cost could also be absorbed by a series where each racer pays a fixed fee, a six week series say $125 if you could cover motor purchase and 2 sets of tires. I'm definitely guilty of the motor of the month ..and I actively search for any performance edge I can get. Id support a spec class if it was set up fairly.
We do this exact thing for club races in 1/12 but as a slower class 21.5. We have handout motors, fixed gearing spec battery. Has been working well for 3 years now
