So I get the whole "cost cutting" measures that are trying to be implemented, but here's my issue. Almost all "200tw" street tires are cheater tires these days, and are just as good as the RC1 or NT01, and also last just about as long (or short, really). We're also just splitting classes up more and more, to make for even less competition. Yet another point, what about the speed differential between the TT6 guys on street tires, vs the TTU or TT1 drivers on full on slicks. Just seems dangerous to me.
All in all, to me it reminds me of the days of racing RC cars when we had a Sportsman, Open, and Pro class for each individual class type. It just seems to me that we're creating an extra class so that mid pack larrys can feel like they have accomplished something.
