I imagine that no one is responding to your idea to split the current single class up into 5-6 classes for two reasons:
1. Its a crazy idea. (I could list the reasons but won't).
2. Getting into a debate with you is like wrestling with a pig in mud. Pretty soon you realize the pig enjoys it and can do it endlessly
I read private pm's as well as I read posts on the site. List the reasons why 4 or more classes is a crazy idea. Hey, I'm open minded and would enjoy reading your reasons and I don't do the group hug thing just to be one of the good ol boys. I also read the rules pretty well.
If you choose to not pm, you've made a statement about yourself.
While your at it how about some commments about finding a sysetm to meaure torque when racing on track. I read folks have tried stuff, but I also read nothing has been successful. If need be I'll research for a system, finance (within reason) and test a system to make a point. I thought when I posted folks would join in with their to date progress, nothing posted.
Enough on that ^ subject. I didn't start the recent parity posts. One question about the 1.6 and the question is aimed at the folks that beleive the 1.6 is at parity with the 99 plus cars. How can anybody really talk 1.6 parity when every time the car is forced below a certain RPM level the driver spends the next lap attempting to catch up. No sense wasting time talking about the torque short fall of the 1.6 because all the xperts know better. If the 1.6 had the up grade to the 99 subframes along with the suspension bits and pieces the friken car still would be sucking hind tit in the torque department. I did see a 1.6 win the June Sprints a few years ago, couldn't back it up at the same track for the Runoffs. < FACTS, don't anyone start throwing out excuses and get all high and mighty. Daytona may be a different deal, only if the driver doesn't get boged down in the twisties. Make a 99 or whatever engine swap legal with some weight and I'll be on the phone for part's immediately. My next call will be to Loshak to qualify the car throug the Majors Tour (three Majors within 100 miles of my home) and do the Runoffs at Daytona. Some on this site think Loskhak couldn't get the job done. < Said while Like some have said within the several last posts, what does it hurt to throw a bone or to to the 1.6 and 1.8, if none come out to plaqy, so what, what's lost. < The point being when a bone or two is thrown out, it's something other than talk. To those running their jaws, and if the 99 plus is so great, dump a 1.6 in and see how great the 99 plus cars are.
Just read Steve's last post. My car has new everything below the bare tub, completed by me. No I don't build engines or rebuild the trans or Mazda Comp diff.
