Quote posted by unclemk: ps, so when and who wrecked there car due to a tire failure? Just curious. I can understand parts failures or brain fade but had not heard of tire failures persay.

The Goodyears in 2009/2010 that the Tour and ES was using. Longton, Stordahl, Habich (in Knight's car) at Monroe, Lang at Yakima, off the top of my head, all had tires go. I had a Goodyear at the opener shred a big chunk out of it, but it didn't blowout.

I dont think any nw racer is going to go out and buy a new peremeter car, but if they can acheive max left at min total they are not at a disadvantage big enough to worry about in my opinion. and prob a lot of drivers crying about not being able to afford a newer car tow with a jacked up 4wd 40k dollar pickup and a big enclosed trailer. and they prob have $800 worth of gauges that dont make their race car any faster. point is a lot of guys that say they cant afford to compete would be able to if they spent their money on the right things. you have to prioritize in life and racing. the peremeter cars dont need a weight break but the total does need to allow them to make left.

3000 total, 100lb spec head break, 200lb crate break and a reasonable tire rule everyone has a fair chance to compete. kinda sounds like RMCS rules doesnt it??? and should be a 50lb break for anyone with an open trailerBig Grin

Tim i hate to break it to you but it doesnt matter what the rules are you are not going to win or be competitive in a late model. i have seen your car go around the track and it shoves up 2 groves and you alays bitch and complain about the rules but its because your car doesnt turn. then you bitch about the motor rules because everyone has all the light weight parts and they go faster down the straits than you, but its because they are on the gas way before you. I am sick and tired of you crying poor me poor me all the time. You say how hard you work and all that, you have no clue how hard other people work too. the fast guys work 10 times harder than you i bet and are smarter. they do there homework and work circles around you i bet. Im sorry if this comes off as mean but im so tired of you taking jabs at everyone else its time to hear the truth. there is classes for guys like you its the street stocks or the hobby stocks. have you ever thought that maybe why you get beat isnt becuase of rules but that people can just flat out drive better than you? im not as good as micheal jordan at basketball but should the nba change the rules just so i can play and be competitive and feel good about myself. No they shouldnt and the same goes for latemodel racing. your trying to be in the big boy leauge where you just dont belong. Sorry but someone just had to say it...

Quote posted by lml29:You forgot to log in with the new nameFrustrated Agree/dis-agree lml29, dude is entitled to his/her opinion. Right/Wrong?In-different I have read your views and don't always agree with them BUT this is an open board and everyone HAS an opinion.It seems when the ones stirring the shit get called out the rest of the shit stirers team up.....I'm not saying I agree completely with some views but maybe its time that people say whats on there mind. OR......just maybe we should be a little more constructive in our comments and try do develope a positive outlook on our sport and maybe we will out-fox this bullshit economy and have a successful season in 2012. I don't know about the rest of you but alot of us are not getting any younger and would like to enjoy the few seasons we have left. Nothing would make me happier than winning a champ with my team with 30 plus cars to beat. The way were killing car count I don't know if that will be possible in my lifetime. No problem with venting your emotions but lets all realize were a small community and every one lost hurts........UMSad

What makes you think it's a dude - in my opinion it's a sniveling little coward who doesn't have the kahonis to say what he (or probably she) thinks without having to create another new screen name to hide behind. At least with my views people know who they are coming from.

If you were paying attention to the origional intent of this post Mike, before you decided it was more appropriate to bash Tim about everything he said, it was exactly about getting people together to better late model racing by maiking things more equal for all types of chassis rather than catering to the latest and greatest chassis ect.... in hopes to maybe have it make sense for guys to bring out the perimeter car that's been sitting in their garage for a few years, and also to maybe keep the guys that are out there staying out there rather than parking theirs because they can't afford to upgrade to a new straight rail car if they want to be in the top three. If you do some shopping for a good used car you will find that there are a hundred nice perimeter cars for sale to every one straight rail and at half the price, so don't you think it would make good business sense to make your rules package appealing to the guy who wants to get into late model racing affordably to be able to do so thinking he might have a chance to be competetive with one of those cars? rather than read the rules and realize that if you don't have the latest and greatest you need not show up unless all that you want to do is follow the pack around and hope a few break? Tim is exactly right about the issues he brings up on chassis weights also as what was meant to save money turned out to be just another benifit for the guys that can afford to take advantage of it and unobtainable for most of the guys who could really use it. By the way, it's Rohde 208-791-1616

A straight rail might cost a little more, but can you resell a perimeter car? Like you said, there are 100s out there.

All this talk about how expensive they are and unappealing to a newbie. Well, I am a newbie. Brandnew equipment. With a turnkey crate car that cost less than a open motor. It took some legwork and wheeling/dealing, but it can be done.
