That sucks that safety equipment means you can't run in your class ... I can
understand things like roll cages kicking you into a different class 'cause
they actually add structure to the vehicle, but scatter shields especially are
just no-brainers for safety ...

Though it is comforting to know that other forms of motorsports have the same
problems with classifications that the SCCA does ...

Where at in IL ? I'm from the Rock Island area originally, I know exactly what
you mean by sticky clay and concrete.

Here's a dumb question, are you allowed to run any tire you want ? If its really
hard as concrete, why not go with a DOT legal RACE tire ... not much tread,
but when its that hard, you can heat the tire up and get a ton of grip ON the
dirt instead of IN the dirt ... granted I don't know that you could find them
in a full size tire for your truck, but I would think you could get some pretty
good sized ones ... then the only issue is weight, and your tire dealer or website
should be able to tell you about the weight limits and such. I imagine if they're
not letting you into the stock class 'cause of safety equipment they'll probably
laugh at you for running a sticky on the dry then tell you to go home if it

Good luck!

Some of the list subscribers may have missed some list
mail yesterday and today. Our dedicated hosting company
made changes to our sendmail config 3 days ago without
realizing I had customized it. In the process of trying
to get everything working correctly, I broke this list

Everything should work normally now.
