Because its a spec class with brand specific components with prize purses that make racing one and finishing well being financially rewarding for the racer.I don't get why TL can't step up their game?
Overbuilt and a little heavy? Sure. Pistols BAJA LITES ran the same motor but had a much lighter chassis and even rookies won a lot of stuff in those things.
Messer put a V of some kind in a TL and raced another class and hauled ass in it.
BUT back to the trophy lites- They were never meant to be compared to any other class. There is almost nothing that was "open" about them. And if they got updated then everyone who owns one has to update theirs. So now we've added costs to a class that was designed to keep costs down. And added power which results in added wear on components so now they cost more to prep.
There is NO reason for anyone besides those who own TrophyLites to make changes to a class that seems pretty self sufficient. I dont disagree that they could have been a little lighter from the get go but iy is what it is. SPEC. I do look forward to you starting the "Trophy Lighter" class though but look out because I hear someone is already working on "Trophy Lightest" and that sounds more promising except for the part where the rules change every 4 weeks.
Can someone suggest that class 9 be allowed to have honda spoon motors next?
