    Most people don't really understand how this works. The number Phil is trying to hit is 7.70s. A 200lb+ guy is not going to go 7.70s on a 15 what ever motor. The torque factor comes into play with the bigger guys.

    correct. i did say that. under my rules i wanted to move the weight up from 560 to 580 or so. because a fuel injected busa CAN get to 580, but it will cost a lot. i dont even know if it could be done with back brakes and all. but i didnt want a 180 pound man to struggle to make weight. so i was gonna move it up to 580 or so with a 1570cc motor. and under phil's set of rules, that same 1570 has to be 600. so after thinking about it, its not that much different

    No because the minimum weight for the 2.62 rule is different. A super light rider and bike combo will be able to abuse ballast rules no matter what but with riches rule the get to be lighter and have bigger motors.

    a big guy is going to have to build a big motor and lite chassis to be competitive no matter the rules

    What is min weight for the 2.62 rule. Maybe there should be a rule on the amount of ballest allowed.

    460 is what I read IIRC. So a 1397 could weigh 533, 1441 at 550, 1507 at 575, 1572 at 600. Etc

    So what keeps a 500 lb combo from adding 33lbs of ballast and running a 1441

    Well your total weight is 533 so that would be a 1397 to run a 1441 they would have to be 550.

    I will run a 1640 @ 630-640 lbs and run with the lil folks, bet my 60' is in the mid teens and will be right with em from the drop of the lights.
    I ran 8.3s @ 67" with a 1507 weighing 265 suited.....
    I ain't worried about the dang rules let's make em and do this shit.
    I am cool with both rules......whatever
    I think I can run 7.6-7.7 with either rules.....let's get it.

    He wins because he leaves first. He wad a bike gone most of the time and they arent 20 lbs apart.
