      Wow, I had no idea the entire powertrain was ahead of the front wheels in that car. :screwy:

      Again, how is it the guy's fault that it's going to court? The state is the one disallowing it and forcing the issue.

      Also, how does a bigoted message like "str8 only" equate to the plate in...

      My initial comment was regarding tolerance of the LGBTQ community re: the plate in question in the OP relative to the illegal act of slavery symbolized by the confederate flag. Thanks for bringing...

      And slavery is the antithesis of that. I suppose you'd say I can't preach tolerance without condoning rape and murder, too? After all, I shouldn't judge or hold prejudice against rapists and...

      Except one is promoting tolerance and the other is promoting bigotry. Other than that, totally the same thing.

      My point was you should have enough self respect to recognise that you just ran over three kids in a crosswalk because you were too busy making a Vine of your baby and that you're f*cking guilty.

      Except the teams which would truly benefit from the additional testing would be the ones in dire need of points to get end of season payouts.

      You ignored my other remarks regarding restrictor plates and NASCAR: 1) run on ovals (conducive to pack-draft racing), and 2) near-spec cars. With these conditions, you have cars with nearly equal...

      It's literally an air restrictor plate. It cuts airflow to the engine in turn slowing the cars down the same amount for all cars. In NASCAR, where restrictor plate tracks are run on ovals in...

      No, that's not achieving anything as all you're doing is reducing everyone's relative performance. All that would do is create a slower overall pace with the same gaps in performance we currently...

      It's penalizing the package, not one component. It would be driver specific.

      I actually don't see that as a bad way to go, though for it to be palatable, testing and development would need to be...

      The simplest solution would be for the FIA to impose weight penalties and/or air restrictors on the winning teams for subsequent races as is done in many sports car series.

      This would affect...

      Yes, that's likely the case. Aside from that, there's also the matter of whether the engine supplier keeps the "A-spec" engines for the works teams and gives the customer teams "B-spec" engines, as...
