I spoke with Jim today to ask about the Vtech motors. He read to me, yes they are going to be allowed. I asked why now and not last year-Jim replied that there are a lot of them on the road and it is easier for people to access them for a ministock. I also asked about splitting the class, front wheel vs rear wheel to try to keep the cars as equal as possible-They will be running the cars together, Jim didn't feel that the Vtechs had any advantage over anything else, he said that he's hearing that the non vtech motors are winning over the vtech. This is something that we as drivers on non-vtech motor cars will have to monitor. Jim did tell me that they are going to be sealing motors this year, to prevent problems like the ones that crept up last year with some of our fellow contestants.
