A team with four cars entered didnít show up after having issues earlier in the week while testing and another racer had a family emergency come up. Not sure what you mean about cars dialing in the 7ís not being allowed.

I’d have to go back and check the rule book, but I believe the TD min dial is 7.50 and TS is 7.70

Wow thats not what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was 7.00. So if the fields were bigger then you would get SC cars just turning off their throttle stops.

I can see the bigger fields if the minimum dial was 7.0 and you had 60 or so cars showing up. 7.0 is just a so so motor is a lite car
