You can ban tire dope at the track but you'll never totally stop it at home. It's been said above and they're correct. Things will go the same way as full size racing.

So in the real world we change part numbers if the update effects "fit form or function". Not changing the part number when there is new old stock in the pipeline is stupid. It's wrong.

Didn't mention anything about the number of runs did I? Posts like yours are one more reason to ignore this thread and not go this year. Used to go EVERY year.
