If left unchecked, everyone will buy Y-car in hopes of making it big.

So we move the car, so that when driven by the best, the margin of victory shrinks to small amounts to ensure fierce competition till the end of the season.

If you want to spin this around as a “hit on Corey”, by all means....

But nothing is done arbitrarily, race results are analyzed and correlated with tuning strategy, personal reflections of the drivers, and other user reviews (at times, data comes in from events south of the border). When someone talks about how “I’ve yet to still do this and that mod” while putting down amazing times, that would certainly make the CCC cautious….. one could just keep their mouth shut and not share their builds publicly, but if that’s how they wanna go about it that’s their choice.

If a car you’re driving has been bumped, consider it an achievement and keep at it. I know that no VW or Subaru’s ever been bumped cuz of me, so I’ve got a long ways to go to catch up to you guys…. Maybe in the FRS.. one day?
Thanks Serge, I do use it as a way to keep the fire lit. And trust me, I understand what you are trying to say, but looking at the results doesn't make any more sense of these specific changes. I won 3 overall events to Chris's 2. In the shoot-out, anyone with half a brain could figure out Chris was experiencing brake issues in the final rounds and thus cost him a legitimate shot at the title. It seems that these changes were based on one event only.. event #7 @ CTMP. And trust me, I knew that was the nail in the coffin for our cars, which is why I offered to have the data logger in my car for the shoot-out so that way there was REAL data to work with over the off season. Unfortunately, other than Stephen, nobody responded. Why?

Honestly though, I don't really mind having our car moved(still don't agree with the CRX), but I don't want to be put at a disadvantage against another car that was pretty damn equal to start with. And if anyone who thinks the C5 Z06 and E36 were not equal, just explain the tire situation to me.
