realize. this limited class is no longer limited. when it was first created, there were cars.. everywhere. just like IMCA when it was here.
initial objectives: motor cost, shock cost. both are very "unlimited" with the lack of tech, bryzenski and forman heads and intakes... and the 900 to 1500 shock packages. never was the intentions for this beginner class.
we are wanting: 1. to put cars back on street tires.
2. to incorporate the crate motors.
3. offer spec shock choice < afco/pro/bilstein >
4. back to affordable pump gas
5. spec 4412 unaltered carb
this is just a start of the discussion. it sure was nice when you build a brand new limited for $7500.oo to $10,000.oo and now this will purchase your motor.
the limited class as it is now will continue. that way big motors and big dogs can play.
No thanks we like the limiteds just the way they are. We dont have the backing that most guys do but we have fun doing what we do. The limiteds and mods are on diffrent than the hobbies and street stocks. In my opinion those two class should be combined to help out the car count there. The mod guys with the big money will continue to run the big shows and the ones that dont can move down to limiteds. And as far as driving against the hot shoes we would rather run against guys that make you earn . In my opinion it makes you better.
make you earn it? i see no competition for johno/howard/hebert/babbitt most of the times... these cats are going to just out drive everyone to the front..
and when big dogs get busted cheating for big motors and other things.... i dont see that making anyone better.
thanks for comments
