Please go read post #78 and you might realize why we are a bit cranky on this.
A few additional points.
We are not the manufacturer.
JK has to figure what exactly has happened, contact his vendor, and it's up to them how they will proceed.
Until we know that, we really can't do anything.
IMO, if there is a problem, it was from a minuscule smaller batch of wire, not Tim having his vendor tighten up the variations of balancing and timing.
I'm not sure how some racers expect us to make instant judgements. We came up with guidelines to hold races, which regional orgs, raceways, and racers can choose to follow or not follow.
We are not paid employees of the racers, but by the tone of some of these posts, some seem to think we are.
I'm curious why you're seeking the solution to this situation from us?
AFAIK, you don't attend any events that use our rules.
Why aren't you quizzing the SCRRA officials?
