My tech guy and I had a discussion recently........it went like this......
question: what is the weight rule for a 360 cid motor?
question: what is the weight rule for a 410 cid motor?
Question: what is the outcome of weighting light......?
answer: You are DQ for THAT race, if it's a heat race you need to start last in the feature, or cosi depending on the number of cars at that event.
Question: if you pumped my motor after the races......i stated it was a spec(360) motor and I meet the weight restiction.....BUT my motor pumped say 362 cid what happens then?
answer: you would be DQed.......You would NOT be considered CHEATING as per the rules, you don't get kicked out for 30 days and pay a $1000 fine to get back into the club. You would only be DQed.......
question: at what point do I go from being DQed to being called a CHEATER? I need to know, I don't care how many times I get DQed because I don't race for points, but I don't want to get the boot for 30 days. If 362 is only DQed is 377 cid DQed or cheating? If I put the spec motor sticker on my hood, and bolt in a 406 and make weight(2450)remember I claim to run a spec(360) motor but pump big is that a DQ or a cheat?
answer: CLICK.........PHONE WENT DEAD, wouldn't return my calls........NOW WHAT?
maybe I should send him a Christmas card.
How does my tech guy help me keep from being caught a cheater??????? I can't stay with in the rules without the questions being answered............I think I will show up with a cheater motor and see what happens. Do you people think I should use a 377 or a 406 for my little experiment? either way I plan on puttin the SPEC motor sticker on the hood and weighting in at 2450.......let them pump it, I should only get DQed right?
I'm a little slow.......I finally figured this out.......NO matter what is on the side of the hood it doesn't matter.....see if they PUMP my motor and it's too big......then I weighted light...because if my motor is a 406 I should have weighted in at 2650...ooohhhhh I get IT NOW.
So there is NO insentive to run a big motor and weight the 2650 unless you are racing for points...........anyone got a 434 I can run in my car?
