    Fake News by Mr. Swiss. This "Rule" or choice refers to local raceways like the one here. It is OUR choice to allow or not allow a controller over a certain price..... Whether it is a local or National race here. We will NOT allow them thankfully we do NOT host national races where there is such animosity towards reasonable rules and fair racing standards....

    IF you wish to allow those controllers, go for it... We don't and won't.....

    Blah, blah, blah.

    You referred to "national racing" in your Slotblog post.

    It's clear as day.

    Truth is truth.

    You know, I was just thinking - CK is concerned about the cost of the $350 and over controllers - if he is SO concerned about people owning and using expensive controllers, what makes $350 such a concern? To me, he is concerned about a controller that provides “advantages” to those lesser drivers so they can compete. If CK wants to make the driving to be solely on the driver, then make the controllers limited to a Parma controller or equivalent? He wants to limit the drivers from spending the money on a controller even if it does not aide in the drivability of the car? And if it does aide the drivability of the cars, he wants to restrict the racers also. From his reasons he has stated, I can only see one result from his position - he is worried that the “perception” that a more expensive controller gives a driver a greater chance of winning - and he doesn’t want to spend the money - or he is worried that the perception will prevent Him from winning. The best drivers at his track - where ever it is - should go win the races with their Parma Turbo controller and prove that a $350+ controller, or even a DiFalco controller is not needed. Well he got a lot of people to spend time over nothing. If he is so smart then show the people at his mysterious Raceway that he is the smarter one! Win with a cheap controller!

    You have no First Amendment right to post anything on a Blog, the First Amendment only applies to the government.

    Apparently the quote in question Mr. swiss refers to was not understood by him..... Again, I referred to OUR racing..

    and we have the absolute RIGHT to state what equipment can and will be approved for use in our local racing.. And if we ran a national event, we would do the same. It is our house... our rules....

    You want to utilize the other controllers, your choice as well


    FYI:

    2018 Maximum Retail Prices for USRA Approved Products
    Group 12 setup $66.04
    Group 11/GTP setup:

    16D set-up with aluminum spring cups $26.57
    Intl-15 armature $46.40
    C12 armature $46.40
    Group 12 (GP-12 & GT-12) armature $46.40

    Yes, rules regarding component costs on cars. Rules that have NOT worked. The biggest controversy of the past ten year in wing racing which is the very reason that as of today there is a second "Nats" taking place under an entirely new sanction stems from the inequity of those cost caps when compared to the actual cost of the components in question.

    Rules regarding dimensions. Rules regarding materials. Rules regarding specific functions. A strict homologation of specific components declared legal and illegal. These work. Cost caps do not.

    CK,
    Still waiting for an answer as to just exactly where you race. All this talk about how you(we?) have this local rule on controllers. Please use your 1st Amendment rights to answer what was brought up in post #s 31,35,40,63,70,74 & 75. Or have the windmills won this fight?

    That is too funny.

    But you have to limit the gauge. You wouldn't want someone having an advantage over another racer because he has thicker wire.

    CK,
    Why didn't you just post the rule here?

    http://www.slotcartalk.com/slotcarta....php?145-Rules

    Then we all could have avoided your one sided discussion. And you still have not told us the who and where this rule applies.

    Sam, I haven't seen you post on the other board for a few weeks. Are you still there?
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.
