Just seen the PPMS press release and it shows Mollick was disqualified. Word going around the pits was they got caught running a lap tracker on their car. I wonder if Howie Ball-Less will come up with more bs excuses this time. Bentz reputation for cheating proceeds him, looks like he finally got caught. Hopefully RUSH will lay down the law and that operation will spend their Saturdays at home.

Rumor around the pits is that Chrome Horn has an utter obsession with the 60m car and everyone involved with it.

Hello Chrome horn. First of all, the last name is Balis.! I do not hide behind a screen name! Second, it was a lap counter. And the way I understand the rule, I guess go pros are illegal because the are electrical devices. If you want to talk, message me or call. You want to hide, well, have a good day!

Was RUSH their all night or did they roll in during the feature? Just curious why you race if you know you have something on you shouldn't? Save your reputation and load up with a mechanical failure.

Vicki likes to do these surprise attacks. When she was at roaring knob a few weeks ago she sat on the hillside and never came in until the feature was over. Apparently somebody from the 60 m car must have gotten word she was on the property with Travis so they just hung in the back of the pack. They only took the top five or six cars to Tech Plus the 60 m. So what does that tell you?

I have no beef with the 60 and was just asking a general question.

Isn't it only cheating if you get caught? Just like speeding?

If you believe it was a lap counter, you should really learn about modern traction control systems.

All of the debate and looks like I was right, but I could have told you that already. If you cant beat em, cheat I suppose. Look forward to seeing how Rush handles this.

Modern traction control runs off of gps and is adjustable on the fly remotely, and the car needs a little box for that info to go to so it can be utilized.

Funny thing about guys that interpret the rules differently. They go down as being the best. The 60 car has always been a top contender. Someone said they took top 5 or 6 cars then RANDOMLY picked the 60 car. Yea rush racing sure is a way to save money. If the 60 team is wrong then so be it, take points, or park them for a period of time.

In thinking. Is it connected thru the ignition system ? With timing you can probably adjust the curve to limit wheel speed ?

They limit wheel spin with the rear brakes.

Wow I thought all this talk of GPS traction control was fairy tales until I googled it. Interesting stuff.
