Are we going to be using the illegally changed USRA Grp F rules with axle bearing at .032 clearance or the Local P.A. Grp F rules with bushings at .062 clearance?

But that does not stop you from running Bushings and 062  Now me I will be running Bearings and 062+ on PA's Track. Now next year if it was me I'd going to the 032 because of Mike's King is a Drivers Track

Group F cars run just fine at Swiss's track at the normal clearance. .032 would be iffy on tire wear.. Just say'n.. :good:

I'm sure you right Bernie but the lower clearance works in 2 ways your car may handle better and you get to use more Tire would I come in at 032 no but 050 yep and change my gearing but that might just be me
