  1. TSTRS - Input needed

    I am sorry if my opinions offended anyone. I would think that everyone is entitled to an opinion. Obviously not. That has always been a big problem on this forum. There has always been a few people who are able to post anything they want on this forum, but others are heavily scrutinized, and edited. That is why this forum only has a handful of regular posters. If you disagree with them in any way, they will respond to your post with hate, and disrespect. The moderator of this forum caters to this handful of hateful, opinionated people. That's too bad. A "forum" should allow everyone to have the same rights, and privileges. This one does not. If someone insults me, and tells me to "shut up" because they do not like my opinion, I am going to defend myself. On this particular forum, it does not work that way. The moderator of this forum takes care of his buddies. I will sign out from this forum, and I will not sign back in. Bye, Nick.

    In one of my earlier posts, I referred to these cars as "Thunder Bombers." That is exactly what they are. These rules are nearly word for word identical to the Thunder Bomber rules we ran with at HRP in Baytown 10-15 years ago. I have no idea why anyone is spending $12,000+ on a "Factory Stock with these rules. (That's what I'm reading they are paying) I can only assume that at that price they are being cheated up something fierce. I can build one of these for half that much, but I wouldn't. It's not worth it as far as I am concerned. I am with "metroracer" on this one. " I am sticking with my vote for the Street Stock / Pro-Stocks and to Grandfather the Supers into the Outlaws..."

    Ask any spectator in the grandstands if they can tell the difference between the cars in the Super Stock class, and the Outlaw Stock class. The answer will be NO! There are barely enough cars to make a decent class even with them combined. I have not had a car in the program, but I know a lot about racing. All of my racing experience is on on dirt track, but I have been a regular spectator at HMP for a long time. The only reason that those two classes are two different classes is because of all of the whining, and crying from the people who race those two classes (all 6 or 7 of them). Combining the two into one class, and tweaking the rules a little bit is a NO-BRAINER! It is totally ridiculous to run two separate classes of indentical cars who only have a handful of cars in each class. The two classes could be run together, and scored separately even. At least that would put a decent car count on the track.

    LOL! My sentiments exactly. Those suckers who paid $12,000 for a glorified "Thunder Bomber" are gonna be pissed off.

    I'm done. Too many sensitive egos here. That's why this forum has never had more than a handful of opinionated people on it. BTW- You can always spot the suckers who paid too much. LOL!!!

    I disagree. There are an abudance of Sport Mods (Limited Modifieds) in existence. Many of them are not owned by cheaters who spend $10,000+ on an open chambered motor that should cost about $3,500, $15,000 chassis, with $1,000 shocks. Those guys (The cheaters) can stay at the dirt track with the other cheaters. The honest guys who want to run in an affordable series can bring their Legitimate Sport Mods to HMP, and put on a good show for a loyal fan base.

    And, it is a glorified "Thunder Bomber" worth about 1/2 of that (with an engine) That is the problem. The Thieves who over charge to build them, and the fools who are willing to pay 3 times what they are worth.

    My previous post was in response to this post.

    That is a valid point that will need to be addressed. If not completely dropped, at least "rotated." I know that I will get some opposition here, but I am of the opinion that the Super Stocks, and the Outlaw Stocks are far too similar to be two different classes. Especially when neither class has been able to come up with a decent car count. I have seen more negativity on this forum from the drivers of these two classes than any other. I believe that there should be a way to combine them so the fans won't have to sit through two different classes of a handful of cars that look identical. I still like the idea of Street Stocks with sensible rules, or a Limited Modified class as long as the cheaters with $10,000+ motors, and $1,000 shocks are somehow not allowed.

    metroracer makes a damn good point. Those "ASPHALT STYLE STREET STOCKS" are some bad ass looking cars. As a racer, and a fan, I can tell you that the fans get very excited when they hear the announcer say- "It's Street Stock" time! This is a class that the people in the grand stands can relate to. Not to mention that they are very competitive. There are stock bodies as well as aftermarket bodies for these cars that are readily available, and fairly economical. Want to look like a 85 Monte Carlo? No problem. Want to look like a 2015 Cadillac CTS? No problem. Want to look like a 2015 Mustang? No problem. The 108" metric frame has a slew of different looks available. There is no reason to have 3 or 4 or 5 or more different classes that all look alike. This is the problem I see with what is running now. Super stocks, Outlaw Stocks, Late Model Stocks, Modifieds... They all look alike to the people in the bleachers, and NONE of them look like anything they have ever owned, or driven. The best way to win over the fans is to give them competive race cars that they can relate to. That's my story, and I'm stickin to it!!! BTW- I do NOT like "Factory Stock" rules. I think there are way too many little ticky-tacky rules meant to give cheaters, and engine builders the ability to dominate the class, and take advantage of the guys who are actually paying to build a race car out of their pockets.
  13. I had the pleasure of visiting with Corey at HMP the last time he raced there. ( He won the Late Model Stock Car race that night) Corey is a very down to earth, and friendly person. I have been following him in the NASCAR trucks very closely. I have been very impressed by what he has done thus far. Good luck to Corey Roper at Michigan this weekend. I will definitely be watching, and cheering him on. GO #04!!!

    So much hate. Now I remember why I went several years without posting on this forum. Go ahead and put me back on "Moderator Queue", Nick. I am better than this.
