Not to allow billet cranks is a joke, its for strength, and reliabilty so you don't break as often and oil down the track and crash....Keep it as simple as you can or your gonna have a thread a mile long about allowing this or that.. Also is the man power there to police all these rules?..Is it really that serious that people would cheat using ti-rods with steel caps as stated!!??? I don't think so!!..We all know the power is in the head/cam combo..So to prevent someone from having a Nascar guy doing a $12,000 head.. Make it so any entrys cylinder head could be purchaced for say $3,500 at the end of the race, so that can just buy another one. That would keep the price down since this is part of what this class is all about....Maybe break it up into 2 classes since there are heavier riders and lighter riders.. I think they should take a poll of who is really serious about racing the class and get the weights of the riders so it would help making the rules. I would not allow standalones.. I know i said the class wouldn't make it, but since its going to happen i'll give my input...Thats just some of it.. I like Rich's rules so far!
