Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

I don’t understand the “transparency” angle you guys have focused on. you all have stated the exact reasoning the SEB made its decicion in your arguments but still claim you don’t see the reasoning. I have personally spoon fed you the rationale in this thread and still you claim there is no transpa...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

Seriously? $5000 kit just to make sure you fuel is compliant....omg lol Please tell me the SEB worked out a member discount rate? Lol Seriously though, since things are self policed, is there a cost effective procedure drafted by the SEB for Street and ST competitors? I would like to think these ru...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

I think you can only do that with a lab, correct? Is there any home garage use tool that can be reliably used to help drivers check if their own fuel is compliant? My chemistry knowledge is limited on this, so if there are any such tool recommendations, please share! http://www.zeltex.com/products/...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

Derek, my first thought seeing your participation table was how many of those "new" people were first timers and how many simply switched from other classes? Hello Rick, That is a good question. I don't know that answer. I don't think many first timers jump into the ST pool at Nats, but I...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

I should also clarify that by saying “driving down participation” I don’t mean that there is negative participation trend. I mean that it is a downward pressure on growth. Just because ST is trending upwards doesn’t mean it couldn’t be trending more upwards. When the goal is to manage the performan...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

The rationale for the change is specifically to render the unlimited boost allowance basically useless to limit how many cars got excluded from ST for being too powerful. Not to mention federally approved it no where near enforceable, at least one can measure octane. I think many of these rules are...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

ST is popular because it requires cheap daily driveable tires. Applying the same logic to stock (now street) resulted in a reversal of a huge decline in participation. Everyone loved that change also. (<— sarcasm) 100 octane is the fuel equivalent of hoosiers. Think about it. Do you think ST is pop...

Re: Rules Proposal - Octane

^fake news. at no point has the SEB's claim been that 100 octane is of no advantage. the claim is that performance gained from using expensive race fuel represents an inadequate return of value to the members participating in our lowest preparation categories and that the allowance of these fuels i...

FS: Blackwatch Racing Tirebags(4) $100

Have used these to carry up to 255/17 tires and wheels in the past. Also doubles as tire warmers on non-lowered cars.
Inside plastic has seen better days, but bags are in really great shape otherwise.
