I guess one way to keep tech fair is to not check anyone to protect those/team/shop suspected of playing outside the lines... Just sayin'
SCCA Majors is the top rung of the amateur racing ladder right now, this is not good for our class. Yes, I asked the question suspecting what the answer was going to be... I've heard what a joke it is. Yes, I'm the NASA guy but this is in my backyard and it's total BS.
Trolling at it's best. Pretty BS comments John, IMO. "suspected of playing outside the lines" Who the F are you talking about? By insinuating people are cheating and not naming names/teams, you're basically accusing everyone of cheating. I'm confident the cars/people/teams running up front come prepared to be tech'd - weighed, restrictors, whistled...whatever.
Sure, I wish more tech was done so people like you couldn't speculate BS. But just because it wasn't, doesn't mean some conspiracy exists to protect cheating drivers/teams. From what I saw and did myself, the top cars were top prepped with solid drivers and that's why we were all so close.
I love NASA too, but their tech can suck balls too (e.g. zero teardowns at Nationals...cough, cough). I've seen minimal tech in my NorCal/SFR region by both NASA/SCCA. SCCA tech at Road Atlanta was good (whistled top cars). Maybe you can share with me/us what makes SoCal NASA so special when it comes to tech? Are you whistling cars in SoCal NASA?
Haven't even hit "Post" and already regretting responding...can't believe I let myself get hooked by an internet troll again!
