NASCAR Finally Does Something

37 posts in this topic

NASCAR is finally putting an end to the injustice called Toyota and forcing them to bring the HP levels down, theoretically eliminating their advantage they've had FOR OVER HALF THE SEASON.

Way to step up to plate NASCAR.....you're only 6 months late. smirk

*Nationwide Series only*

NASCAR + Best cheaters win!.This is the only sport where all the big money teams cheat,One minnor change could mean winning or losing, It's GREAT! How many other sports are there when the officials look very closely before, during and after , measure crashed cars and come to the conclusion that everything is with in spec?

I would guess this will slow down the faster Toyota's. MWR will always be slow.

Yep, I would guess that the Toyota's at JGR will be slowing down a little.

Now, if the rat can still continue to win races at the same pace as before, then I will agree that he may be on to something other than extra hp.

. MWR will always be slow.

Reutimann had the highest dyno'd engine of the ones tested. The Rat had the second highest HP.

What's wrong with MWR? You guys are in the know more than I am - but from my view, his ownership has been a disaster.

Too bad - I always enjoyed watching him race...

Does this mean another title for JJ who I was going to pick anyway?

wow, 2 roush cars had more HP than the gibbs #20 (that won 9 races this year).

How many wins does Reutimann have in Nationwide this year?

This change is for the NATIONWIDE cars.

For some reason, they haven't been taking Cup cars and dyno testing the engines this year like they have in the past... Seems like they maybe like their new 9 figure investor in the sport winning all the time.

This engine crackdown was for the Nationwide Series only. I should have posted that in the first post, but since it had previously been discussed here I made the assumption it was known. Sorry.

Is the engine that Toyota is running not the exact same specs as all the Chevy and Fords???

It's a newer design. Chevy has their new engine built but it needs to be approved by NASCAR first. Conveniently NASCAR has put that approval process on the back-burner while other (new) manufacturer takes advantage of the power difference.

Not entirely true...they have been dyno testing the Cup cars, but they're not finding the large discrepency in HP numbers in Cup like they did in Nationwide. If it's less than 5 HP, they don't deem that significant.

And,

Toyota's Cup engines have been making (on average) 3 HP more with the regular engines, but they've been down ~4 HP with the restricted engines. The Toyota Nationwide engines were making 15-16 more HP than the rest.

JGR engines are turning more RPM than any of the other Toyota teams, which may very well be the difference. I don't expect JGR to be that much slower at ORP this weekend, unless they sandbag like other teams have done in the past when they sanction a specific manufacturer.

What a crock of you know what... I am about had it with all sports in general. You know for a fact that nascar loves the "9 figure investor" everyone knows that. Almost getting to the point where I dont even like watching races anymore.

There is no need to give the toilets a hp advantage. Even it out and see who can set up and race the best without any advantage.

Maybe the advantage is the driver.

Quote:
CLERMONT, Ind. -- Kyle Busch led all but three laps Saturday night to win the Kroger 200, his sixth NASCAR Nationwide Series victory of the season.

Busch's win is Toyota's 15th in 22 Nationwide races, but the first event since NASCAR's mandate Wednesday to cut down the horsepower in Series engines knocked 15 horsepower out of Toyota's engines. NASCAR changed the parameters after rival teams complained, even though Toyota was within the rules.

Could it be down force? He seams to be able to high or low. Maybe he just likes driving on or past the edge. He sure was jumping on the restarts.

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
