You'll have to ask them - I've nagged them for years to join me on my annual roadtrips to the SE Div - no takers.

 

Follow-up question: Why don't they enter Majors at Mid-O?

Not good enough to convince you that they have enough torque, so give us a couple of posts on that.  :)

That ^ would be like me busting your balls for wanting the rev limiter raised on you 1.8 NA. :bigsquaregrin:

 

It wasn't me a while back that requested letter suggestions on improving the 1.6 torque.  They reduced the weight by 25 pounds.  It's a show of good faith.

 

Did you catch that top end 1.6 SM/ITA testing at Daytona a few weeks ago?

I'm going to guess that your posts on 1.6 torque outnumber my posts on 1.8 rev limiter by 500:1.  25 pounds was a show of good faith and should make a well prepped well driven 1.6 a contender at M-O.

Gee, maybe I'll do another 500 posts, get another 25 pound reduction and I'd still be capable of being under weight.

Why should we answer your questions? I am still waiting for you to answer the one on the cam bolts.. Funny when the answer doesn't fit your agenda, you simply refuse to play along. We had a name for kids like that in High school, but this is a "PG" type of community :) Meow!

 

If you promise to never post about the TQ again, I am sure the entire community will allow a DD rule enabling you to run 150 lbs lighter. If it will keep you quiet.. where do I sign?
