As the post says, I just want to make a call for the exec as a team to please all be on the same page and know the rules so that solodex can be as fair as possible.
On sunday gone, I noticed a car running R1R tires which is 140TW. I then remembered the 2015 rules which were just recently sent out having a change with regard to that very same thing. The rules now says if you are 140TW you receive 1 penalty point, if you are over 141 then no points and below 140 is termed a race tire and an immediate class bump.
I could not remember exactly what the rules said at the time, but I knew some change had been made with regard to that from when I skimmed through the rules. I brought this to the attention of a committee member and the response was, "Don't worry about that, that is a typo", so I left it as is. Upon returning home, I checked the rules back and surely this cannot be a typo.
Exec, I've seen countless instances like this in the recent past. If the exec does not even know the correct thing, then who is going to enforce these rules and ensure that competitors abide by them?
Another query I have is the points for ALL sway bars regardless if it came with the car or not, whether it is in front or in the rear....same amount of points. I'd like to hear the members views on this because basically, what you are saying is almost no car in solodex will start with a clean slate.....almost all cars will be penalized from the get go.....this makes no sense to me.
If, however this is the case......have all the cars that were at the dyno day been subject to this rule? Does everyone have points attributed to them for their stock sway bars?
I think an electronic document should be posted with all the cars and the penalties awarded to them and the total amount of points shown.
I say this, because going back to my first point, I do not trust that these rules are being rolled out and applied equally to all the cars by the exec.
