Personally, I really don't get the big uproar here about the bodies? I just try to support slot car racing in general.
I come from a long background of 1:1 circle track racing. So, when we were ready to go racing, we looked at the rules for where we were going and adapted the car to the tracks/series rule package. I carry the same attitude with slot cars. If I run an IRRA® event, I adapt to those rules the best I can and go racing. If I run at my local track, I adapt to Tracy's kinda weird rules and go racing! When I make it to the west coast, I will adapt to SCRRA rules and go racing!
My time is better spent preparing for the rules presented rather than trying to get some one to change the rules for me. It's really just that simple.
It's just that simple, I couldn't have said it better. And I believe most racers feel the same way..When things are changed or added it's always the same small group of people commenting. While i appreciate the diverse point of views it always ends up being the same individuals putting down the same individuals.
