  1. People with a surplus income will spend it all on any hobby they see fit. Could be a $400,000 boat or a multi car race team.. They want to have the best, be/beat the best and will happily spend it all anyway they can. You can put a cap on there if you like but much like taxes, they will find loop holes. Stamping/ capping parts is silly... what if a driver needs to borrow parts midway through the race night? If he's allowed to share parts at the track, a team like gypsum would also be allowed to share parts at the shop.. you'll just see the top teams have more registered cars in his shop so they can buy more parts. What if a driver has a string of bad luck and tears up a bunch of parts in the first 3rd of the season, is he then screwed out of the rest?
  2. It already is set up that talent goes to the front, whether it's talent in the shop or talent behind the wheel. No matter the combination, it takes a big chunk of money to win often in any class as compared to the rest of that particular class. There's plenty of teams spending piles of coin and getting mid field results in the SDS races. There's teams with modest budgets getting really good results too. You can open up the rule book all you want or do the exact opposite and spec every component on the car and you will have the same results you have now. If the rules are opened up, not long after someone will find the hot set up and all will copy and we'll be pretty much where we are now. Same result with extra spec/cookie cutter cars. Teams will spend wherever they can for a perceived edge.
  3. Hasn't this been the same rumor at can am for the last few seasons? If it shrinks to 4/10's, it's still big enough for me.

    Some people pay a spa a lot of money to get covered in mud... Gary was being generous... You should be thanking him...
  5. Even if you were to remove the outlaw win, Mike has put up some really good finishes this year in both the BB and 358 classes, an occasional LM race thrown in for spice.... Hopefully he carries this over to next year too an adds another contender on the SDS.

  7. During Billy Jr's recap at the 17:30 ish mark of Mandee's vlog he talks about the Mod's aero characteristics being a little too close to sprint cars when he talks about how hard it is to pass the leader in when not in traffic. I haven't really noticed, or maybe I just always assumed the leader was just faster, or maybe it's because he had whatever line he wanted to take. This question is really more for the drivers on here, it what Billy is saying really noticeable, is the leader's car that much harder because of the clean air on his car vs the 2nd place car or is it a combination of all? If this means more "sliders" for mod passes vs the 2 lane side by side by side passes with a guy bouncing of the cushion and one hugging the bottom, I'm not so sure I like where this is going...😕 Maybe I am reading too much in to what he said???

    Bicknell?

    Other than having way more numbers helping their case, are there sportsman cars other than BRP that are winning often? The top drivers can win in anything, if a 8th to 10th place guy switches and all of a sudden is up front weekly, I would say there's something in the switch. With so many Bicknells out there, it's not only the support from BRP themselves, there's also the support of the friends in the pits beside you that you can pick their brain.

    Bicknell?

    Alphabetically it's first, when teams are flipping through the yellow pages, they get called ahead of the others....🤔

    A New DTD

    Agreed... the only reason I requested the points updates was because I have more faith in you guys doing it faster than the actual tracks...😁

    Maybe a scrolling banner that displays the top 10 in points of tracks as well as the series points?...
  12. 66 GT40 that was part of the program that kicked ferrari's ass for a few years. Here's one from sotherby's if anyone is looking for xmas ideas for me... 😃 https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/MO18/Monterey/lots/r0073-1966-ford-gt40-mk-ii/692159
  13. You think opening up the rules would make things cheaper to to the lower funded teams?....... please explain.. If the rules weren't there, there wouldn't be a BB or 358 class anymore. Everyone but the elite teams would be in a sportsman. Last time I looked, there ain't enough elite teams to keep the SDS going let alone their weekly tracks.
