I have a suggestion that might ruffle some feathers but might end some myths, too. The BPR monthly racers should institute a handicap system that any racer that finishes in the top 4 of the A Main should be disallowed from running a Ti-22 body in future monthly races. This may show us what the "second best choice" would be, at least at BPR.
Don't be surprised if the A Main racers are still the same guys with the "second choice" bodies.
We could also make a rule that the top 4 A-Main racers can still run the Ti-22 bodies but without the rear spoiler. Again, unintended consequences, don't be surprised if the cars are faster due to lower drag!
In NASCAR, the races have tended to get better when the rule changes result in cars that are harder to drive and the (real) drivers tend to rise to the front and say they enjoy the racing experience more... well, to a point, of course.
During my six years of Retro racing, my aspiration to be a mediocre racer has come and gone; my peers now assure me I have peaked (some time ago)!
The only thing I know about slot cars is if I had a good time when I leave the building! I can count the times I didn't on one hand!
Entitlement: The notion that one can have their slot car racing and EAT IT, too!
