  1. Yeah whatever, I'm only here because we have one race credit to use up from a race we had to cancel. I am tired of my points having to readjust every couple of months because BMW or Miata needs or doesn't need a part to be free or points. We will probably be EC as I don't think I have the patience to read through the entire techdesk that is growing by the day to find the points for the items not in the rules in the effort to have a "stable" rule set. I submitted the aluminum flywheel question out of curiosity, shocked it was not allowed for the Mustang, jaw dropped when Miata gets it for free, now 10 points, I think steel is free but I wonder if cast iron or billet steel comes into play. Crazy that an SFI flywheel would not be allowed when SFI is the word of the day for fire suppression. Aluminum flywheels have been in the series for what, 10 years and over the course of a week or two it gets three different values depending on what car it is for.
  2. If those are true then obviously the Mustang must pay 48 points for a fibre glass hood even though it came with one, pay 20 points for a power steering cooler while others get it for free, and cannot run an aluminum flywheel that others get for free. Miata and BMW can run the larger tank, Honda can inflate theirs. Oh and the TBird needs a 10 lap penalty because it led by half a lap that one time. Not green font. I think I am starting to understand the rules finally. While I am at it, can someone remind me - back with the original board members were they always EC when they raced?
  3. Is it for a BMW or does it contain a cast iron piece?
  4. If that was for a Mustang I’m sure it would be at least 25 points or simply not allowed.
  5. I wonder when the other answers to my January 10, 2020 questions and clarifications will get posted?
  6. The reply was from the techdesk, submitted Jan 10, 2020.
  7. Funny story. I asked back in January 10 what the points would be for an aluminum flywheel. As per the techdesk rules you have to say what car it relates to so I put in 1990 Ford Mustang. The answer came back as “Not allowed”. Then I saw on the forum that some Miata’s had an aluminum flywheel for zero points this past year as per tech. Now I see aluminum flywheels are 10 points. There is a lesson or key learning in there somewhere but I just can’t quite put my finger on it. Hmmm.
  8. Had a look at the layout - congrats to whichever Miata team wins. As as far as the secret two car team - it is funny how the east figures everything is all about them. Ha.
  9. It’s OK, I am sure it will get hit with a 100 point increase. Oh wait, that only happens to cars that DON’T win races.
  10. That's weird. TechDesk requires that submissions be made specifying the vehicle, I guess I should have said it was for a Miata like PartsBadger instead of a Mustang because the answer was "Not allowed". Maybe the Mustang spins it at too high of an RPM?
  11. I had ruling from the tech desk on Jan 10 that aluminum flywheels are not allowed, I wonder when it will be posted for anyone else to see @Bill Strong?
  12. Yes, I asked about an aluminum flywheel on Jan 9 and the reply Jan 10 was "Not allowed".
  13. Rays says a stock OE cast iron component can be replaced with any other stock non-OE cast iron similar function component for two points despite that item being on the fixed value list. Seems to be as long as it is a cast iron piece, cast iron seems to be very important, it just is, don't ask why. In the case of the Camaro it is cast iron manifolds. In my case cast iron heads. How can the new rule be any different for one cast iron component on the fixed value list but not another cast iron component on the fixed value list? Just to be fair. Mix and match as you wish, as long as it is a stock cast iron component. Perhaps the Dart's were taking it a bit far but if the Camaro can buy new Ram's Horn cast iron manifolds from Holley...
  14. I see, so if a component is cast iron and stock then it can be replaced with any other cast iron part to perform the same function for only 2 points. So the stock Ford 5.0 can run any stock cast iron head E7/GT40/GT40P for only 2 points? Seems to me Dart makes a stock replacement cast iron head as well for the 5.0, as per the Dart site, "Works with most standard components".
