We already have 15 rules changes in the works for next week. NA gets a restrictor, VVT will run in Global Cup, and 99's will be vintage.

My NA restrictor is going to be snail-shaped and make whooshing noises, okay?   It's cool - I'll make sure to put gaskets on either side to keep tech happy.

I think the 1.6 should get a restrictor and a weight increase.  We've never tried that combination on that car.  Since going to the sticky Hoosier's it's probably just and it helps the cars to be more the same in the pages of the rulebook.  We want nice symmetrical rules.  We can evaluate it right here on this forum over the next 4-5 years.

I am sending a letter to the CRB requesting a Parity adjustment that for every decade over age 20 you get a 1MM larger plate. Easy to enforce, you just show your drivers license or birth certificate, in tech.

Dose that ^ suggest my 1.6 may have a throttle body/intake track which is 5mm larger than OEM? :bigsquaregrin:

 

I was thinking the 99 plus cars should have a controlled variable intake restrictor which would be a smaller diameter until 5,600 RPM.

i like the idea 

 

If you win a majors you have to add 100lbs.

 

Just like World Challenge rewards weight i would support that for a weekend at a time, win sat gain 100 for sunday, reset for the next weekend... that would be a fun rule.

Did something happen this year and I missed it ?

Did an NA win one race out of the last 5 years and it has to be changed ? Lol
