I know it has been discussed on FB as Tyler B thinks it's a safety issue.
I got nailed in the back by Jim S at Topeka a couple of weeks ago when I stalled out. Hadn't been an issue for me all weekend until that race but started happening a bunch that day.
I hate FB for discussion like Steve S. so thought I'd start a thread here.
If timing is open at the crank why wouldn't we just allow open timing altogether? Probably not that simple but as a collective we need to let the CRB know what we want in my opinion.
Here's a copy of the email I (along with hopefully everyone) got.
The Class Compliance Chief (CCC) has observed significant movement of the reluctor wheel on the intake cam of some VVT engines during compliance inspections at multiple Hoosier Super Tour Events. Those that were discovered to have an altered reluctor wheel have been found non-compliant based on GCR section 9.1.7.G.1.
Some members have told us that the movement of the reluctor wheel is being moved specifically to make the ECU function as designed as it relates to cam crank correlation. The SMAC is continuing to investigate the need for the reluctor wheel to be moved and have engaged Mazda to assist our team in understanding the relation between the reluctor wheel and the rest of the engine.
It is important to note that the current rule does not allow for moving of the reluctor wheel. Changes have been made to the official SCCA Camshaft Profile Data Sheet to show where that reluctor wheel is located and can be found in the May 2021 Fastrack. https://www.scca.com...data-1/download
As with any change or modification that may violate an existing rule, the SMAC would like to remind the community to please write a letter to request the approval of any modification that is not currently allowed prior to making the modification. The SMAC will evaluate the request and recommend what they believe to be best for the community to the CRB for approval. Requests may be submitted online at www.crbscca.com
