For those of you that weren't there this weekend to see... Phil Davis was the man in tech, and he did a great job! Bikes were inspected and there were quite a few pop checks that people werent planning on after their runs. Phil Davis means business, make sure you read the rulebook thoroughly, so you are not DQ'd. Because it will happen if you are outside the rules. Some of the racers that were at the ROCK found that out first hand.

Also, several items on Jeremy Teasley's RST bike was sealed after his record pass, and his bike was torn down after the final and several things were checked for his record claim. The entire front end was stripped, bodywork, and other items. He passed the full inspection.

Sounds good Jason.

Are basic tools going to be avaialble at Tech in order to perform some of the basic tech items (screw drivers for removing air filters comes to mind)?

Great to see the tech getting more thorough.

It went like AMA had it.. They find something didnt fit the rules you had until next round to fix or then DQ'd from my understanding.

I do have to agree with you on that.. Maybe if a headlight or tailight goes out then yea I can see that. but I dont think it should be that way with everything. I might be wrong in my understanding this is just how i got the understanding

I am pretty sure that you would only get DQ'd for that round (of qualifying) and could come back to try to qualify again if you were "fixed". Not sure if they woudl eliminate the previous qualifying attempts, but it would be difficult to prove that you weren't legal for the previous attempts.

no im saying...if you won the round and beat someone and u didnt pass tech u should be dqd no 1 round to fix it..that means you won and your bike wasnt leagal not fair..yes if it was a light bulb thats one thing...anything else no..

same with qual if your not leagal for what they are checking for that round your time is not good for the qual..

I agree. :2thumbs: Anything that could give a performance advantage that was illegal should be a DQ. I think this weekend was charging systems not charging for something.
Realistically, the charging system is less than 1hp at full load so it really doesn't give any performance advantage to a Prostreet bike. Could even hurt them if the voltage comp maps aren't right.

In that case, I would hope it would be a fix it for next round thing, but if ya can't make it work, might need to get the DQ. (I can see it now..burnt up rectifier and running through the pits trying to borrow one for a round...:s21:)

1hp or not some call it a performance advantage others dont...a tail light or headlight let it fly..even a kill switch but anything else i dont think is right..

This is out of the 2011 rule book
ELECTRICAL: Functional charging system, head and taillight w/ brake light, and kill switch required. Headlight and taillight must be retained in stock
locations and operate automatically when ignition is switched to the ON position. Turn indicators optional. Headlight is required to be on during all
qualifying and eliminations. In the event of failure, charging system and bulbs will be inspected and repairs will have to be completed prior to next
round. Auto shifters are prohibited.
So if you do have a bad wire you have till the next round to fix it. In my case I never left tech to show him mine was working it was just a lose wire.
