      Hasn't happened yet (at least that I know about for gas vehicles), and this 'clarification' does nothing to change the possibility of that happening. It could happen with or without this change right...

      They would have to change that regulation.

      In reality I don't think this changes all that much right now. The EPA was going after the diesel tuners anyway, and they are 'clarifying' the rule to...

      This is exactly what I think it is, and it is really targeted at places that sell DPF delete kits for diesel trucks.

      Yep. I know people want to paint the EPA as the boogieman, but the automakers are going to be the ones who do this in the end. They have pushed for it recently, and will again.
    6. I believe that the EPA has cracked down on people...

      I believe that the EPA has cracked down on people with DPF deletes, and that probably extends to some extent. Also probably why this clarification is in the heavy duty section.

      The EPA doesn't...

      That is Texas' way then, and I'm sure through your rent the tax bill is paid. Every state/county/city does it differently, but taxes are still out there. Some are just more visible than others.
    8. The county fee where I live in the 1st year is...

      The county fee where I live in the 1st year is basically 1.8% of the MSRP and then the state tacks on $15-60. A 30k car is around $555 for the first year registration.

      The 2nd year is 1.5%, 3rd...

      Not going to happen. SEMA wants to create a stir on this regulation to keep it from being implemented. Creating a stir (even if it stretches the truth) creates pressure on the EPA. They may have a...

      I was just reading something that said 8500 GVWR. Which would be 3/4 and 1 tons as well.

      That looks to be exactly what it is doing and of course SEMA would want to make that as big of a deal as...

      The EPA can't enforce the regulations real well on a car by car basis (way too much cost for an agency that has a hard time getting funding anyway)... Less so in the states that don't want to enforce...

      I think HD by the EPA classification starts at 14000 GVWR... That is class 4 and up.

      Racecar is different to different people. I've seen people drag race F450 and 750s.

      Nothing at all (own a couple myself). Just saying, that if it is for heavy duty vehicles, that is what they are targeting in this go round. Probably as a test run to see how it works.

      SEMA will...

      Even if it is just for heavy duty vehicles (and that remains to be confirmed), I believe this is the case. The EPA wants to close the loophole and this is a way to start.

      At some point in the...

      If it was true, SEMA still has a vested interest in making this as big of deal as they can. They are going to portray something in a manner to sway public opinion so people can still have this:

      They are clarifying a 1037 regulation, that is why heavy duty makes sense to me.
    17. Even if it is just for heavy duty vehicles (I...

      Even if it is just for heavy duty vehicles (I don't know enough about the regulations, but the idea that it is just for heavy duty vehicles seems right), SEMA has a vested interest to make this a big...

      0-60 runs 100 times in a row would break a lot of transmissions and differentials in ICE cars.

      Not many have been delivered, but some have. The Founder series have been delivered and they are delivering Signature series X's now.

      My Fiesta is supposed to only get 26 in town according to the EPA... the lowest it has ever gotten on a tank is 31 (all city driving). Anecdotal, but modern DI gas burners can get great mileage in...
