Personally, I find the Quin and Dickson cars very ugly to look at, but very interesting to watch, and any move in a direction to ban them can’t be good for the sport. Innovation should be encouraged rather than driven away
Well it is progressive and we need to seek change ,and it wont be long others will follow suit. It is like the 6 pin hub episode it quietly extinguished it self ,mind you there was only one old Billy goat amongst the sheep ...
Aren't late model saloons designated a class of their own, NZ regulation saloons as approved by SNZ are a separate class from late models. The late model by their design and geometry take up more track space and can and have done, impede the SNZ cars. Yes SNZ have approved the late models for our tracks but the issue is in reality you have two classes running as one.
I think SNZ has adopted enough complicated issues without adding geometry to the list Just imagine poor old Percy being elected as there geometrician we could look at the sport from different angles ...

Limiting the travel allowed with a 4 bar set up or completely ruleing it out should be at the bottom of SNZ rules to change.
If they want the class to grow and become more affordable they need to change the engine rules to allow a larger degree of heads. Currently, the cars have to run 23 degree heads which is becoming more and more harder and expensive to source from America.
As well as the engine set back rule. If they allow the engine to move back 6 inches then competitors can pick up a chassis from America for 1/3 of the price of building a new chassis in NZ.
