Big Blue,Turbodon, I don't 100% disagree with what you are saying, but 10-15hp isn't going to be the difference in beating any of the DRIVERS that are running up front. I can tell you 10-15hp isn't going to get you in front of the Belks, Zach, Travis, Bean, Willard or the Schweers. Most of the cars are so different that it comes down to who is comfortable with their equipment. Look at how many older cars are still winning against the new breed of cars. If you look at how races were won and loss this year it comes down to who was there at the finish with the least mechanical issues (Parker, V2R, Pahrump).
I agree w/ you 100%
Aside from Willard, I believe all those names you just mentioned are stock Ecotecs. Willards is built I beleive but maybe makes less hp than a new DI?
Why are those guys worried about modded engines if they're already winning without them. The current rules already allow modded engines and those guys are not being beat by anyone with a modded engine. That's why I'm LOST.
