I'm all for a mandatory use of INS boxes for all ROAR races. Any way to reduce the amount of noise polution in general should be welcomed. But that's another issue. As for Kissimmee Raceway, it is hard to believe that the track produces more noise than the Kissimmee Municiple Airport also on or next to the property. But hopefully this minor mandate will make the landlord feel more comfortable and continue to let championship level racing happen here. I've never been there, but I can't wait to race there in Nov...looks awesome. As for performance, we'll all learn a bit more about engine tuning at this race.

I've been running an INS box for a year now and have no performance issues. Just make sure the small intake holes are facing towards the rear of the chassis. The INS box only reduces the sucking sound created by the carb venturi.

The issue for people is going to be tuning the engine with a diffferent sound. It does not take long ot get used to...

Good decision...

Trust me when you get there and see the track you will forget about this INS box issue and be happy to be able to race on a track so nice.
We should be using INS boxes at every track like I said before on another thread this will be the wave of the future so get use to it.

I let you in on a little tuning secret, add 26 drops of slick 100 in a gallon of fuel, set the high end on the track...after the engine is warmed...have someone go on the back straight and listen to the engine, keep leaning the engine until it sounds as if the engine is going to explode....then lean it one click more...don't worry about the smoke, the slick 100 will take care of everything

Shouldn't the INS box's cold air induction system offset the heat produced by a melting sleeve?

It's not in any of the ROAR rules yet, but if people really want to have quiet cars, the noise reduction box is only the first step. A three-chamber pipe helps quiet down the exhaust noise quite a bit, while not hurting performance. If I remember correctly, the combination also improves fuel mileage.

Just something to consider.

I have never heard of an ins box! What does it look like? Does the intake really contribute to the noise level? Seams odd.

Rafael, just wondering - is there wireless internet access at the track? I guess I'm not expecting it to be there, but sure would be nice! Thanks!

If I would have had a suitable computer in Messina, I could have done things better. Now I've got a better computer, but I guess most places don't have wireless access.
