That's how it has been for electric on-road for decades... It really isn't that difficult.

Why is sauce allowed in the sedan worlds but then we had Saucegate at the 1/8 worlds in Homestead last year

Oh really.

When I listen to the interviews with the big guns from the worlds, I hear that saucing is the biggest problem for them.

And why? What good does it do?

Does a foam shed nitro car need sauce to be fast?

But don't you agree it's also the easy excuse for being of the pace?.
If I can figure it out within one day of practice at the euros it can't be that difficult?.

Also I think we might see the true pace of some drivers, because everyone uses additive. The guys who have been using it illegally for some time should find them selfs in a lower spot.

I think it's not totally true,if someone is saucing for more time than anyone else then they have the know-how.
