In Topic: New MSD box, new rev limit.

13 March 2018 - 08:24 PM

I also heard of a geezer who's amp went up to 11.





Heard yesterday that some drivers spend more on engines that don't rev past 7500 rpm than those whose engines do.


i read a comment from a top driver saying that he'd bought an 8500rpm engine cos it was cheaper than a 7200rpm one. 


what tyres to V8 Hot stox use?  What about a slightly bigger size of them on the rear axle?

What a shame.


I gave him some of my old Mitsubishi WRC overalls he used to wear from time to time.


Another good guy lost. 


Thoughts and prayers to his friends and family.

I'm no IT expert, but I don't know of any IT component that can't be tampered with, so this seems expensive way of effecting all the budget racers to try and stop the big bucks engine spenders gaining advantage.


We have seriously lost our way, the main attraction of this sport used to be the unlimited power on a small track with tyres, brakes and suspension that couldn't handle it.


Now we seem to be allowing so called technical experts force in expensive technology that will ultimately harm the budget racers. This is a minor expense for those already spending the huge amounts on the Nascar engines.


who are the 'so called' technical experts?

Understand your concern, but in this world text message is the quickest and easiest way to get a response from the drivers.


Doing it by post is time consuming and won't get a very quick response - nor will it get as many responses as you can by text messaging.


The actual amount of votes taken at the AGM was 'very low' for this - so it's the BSCDA's way of making sure it gets the most accurate decisions from ALL of its members, and not that of those who came to the AGM.


Hope this makes sense.


While I'm on here, if any drivers want accurate information on this situation and the hardware suggested, please do feel free to contact me via PM.


I won't be entering into discussions on here about this until the vote has taken place.

A text message to object the latest issue speaks volumes where we’re at in 2018.

No need for sorry.


I've been there every month for around 35 years, so I feel the pain just like everyone else.


Yes, there is financial gain - but unfortunately it's business, it happens. We may not like it but this is life. Remember if Mr Sandhu hadn't have bought the stadium from the Ochiltree family it would have closed many, many years ago. He really did give the place a stay of execution and we should all be thankful for that. (and yes, I am aware of the caveat in the original purchase contract to keep racing going for a number of years). To portray him in a negative light just isn't fair - although to the uneducated this appears to be a way of life these days.


Should a miracle happen I'd be first there with my paintbrush but we have to be realistic - and energies will be much better spent campaigning for a new stadium.
