Phil, with all due respect. I would say that there isn't any question as to whether they are legal at this moment in time.philhoward wrote:Steve (O) - if you think they're now legal, fit vented discs.
IF they subsequently get ruled not legal in your chosen class (via the regs or a complaint/Scrutineer) so be it.
* The scrutineer (who is also a Scim owner), makes it clear that they are, within the guidelines he mentions in the email.
* I have found SR's from at least half a dozen other championships that run to the BB clarifying that brakes are free in RG.
* The BB does not make any specific suggestion that brakes are not free in RG, and neither does it do that for MP.
On the weight of this evidence, I cannot see why legality should be questioned.
The next humungus can of worms is whether or not the SSSC makes a decision to add an SR to preclude them. My honest opinion is that they should not. Give it a season or two to see if it makes any sort of difference to competitiveness or the number and class of entries, then make an informed decision. Any decision made on the basis of Might's & Maybe's would be flawed and totally unfair IMHO.
