In order for things to go back to 'the old days' and only run (I never saw only 2 classes, there were always at least 3) they way it USE TO BE.Why do we need so many different classes at big races? Why not go back to the way oval was when it started with just two classes stock and modified like the old days.
I agree with you Jake!JDW said:Just wanted to add some things.
I just started racing pan cars a bout 6 months ago started with 4 cell stock 27 turn.At first I ran 70 laps other guys running 78 laps.So went out bought several motors f brushed puttum brushes 767 brushes bushing reamer hood alinement tool dyno lathe brush cutter ect and with the best motor I could build could only run 75 laps 5 laps better but sill 3 to 4 laps down.
Then we started running 13.5 first time 78 laps and the better drivers 79 to 80.
So what I am saying is brushless made the untouchable with in toughing distance and made the whole field very close in times.
And in 4300 I am right there with the guys that have been racing for years.
Brushless is so close and befor it gets out of control we should keep it that way.
If you want to blow your whole paycheck then do it in mod.
I agree 100% on this, biggest problem is rules, not that there are 4-5 people trying to make them, or the dozen or so "nationals", but that when there is a spec class built it often gets exploited by the "old timers" in this sense. New guy never has a chance even in the beginners class. 2nd problem is transponders, every is worried how fast they are running to the tenth, every week.swtour said:ALL these things drive NEW BLOOD out of this hobby...and increase the INTENSITY level of competition amongst the OLD TIMERS who stay up with it...because the cars just keep getting FASTER and FASTER and FASTER...and NEW guys too often have no clue where to even start...and/or are intimidated to try.
