I like format of shuffel/however I don't like crapy tires,if we run same car w/racing tires be the same,without someone or several people get junk cars that are not competive,problems with shuffle ,someone will get screwed!!!

shuffle race challenges the driver doing everything on racing tires doesn't leave enough on the driver no challenge go fast break hard turn. i'm not big fan of shuffle race tires but i do like the challenge.

I like a challenge also and to be honest shuffle isn't that hard on any tires. I think it would help drivers learn car controlle and teach drivers that faster isn't always a good thing. Sometimes you gotta be smooth and clean. It will be interesting. But NASCAR is still an option. I'm not the biggest NASCAR fan but I think if we set things up properly it could be fun and help people with setting up a transmission. Lets hope we don't have a tie. Just need one more Vote. Btw I voted for one make.

I voted one car make no tuning, for no other reason than you could have more people get in if they have some free time when the races happen.  I know personally if I don't have time to test and be competitive, sue to other obligations I likely would not race.  However if I knew I could pop in from time to time and run I'd likely do that more.

Honestly I like all the ideas

I like the no tune option- so much so that I think it should be one class of the next series we race. I have been VERY short on time lately and like Delta said, if I can't get a chance to tune it seems like I can't compete at even midpack.

i agree, the one make is simple and effective, a few drivers don't like the idea of no tuning but the fact is you don't have anything to blame if you lose. pure driver racing.

So far Friday is winning. The vote can be changed so whoever voted Monday if you can't run Fridays let me or racer know
So that we can maybe work something out and get this started next week. Thanks.

It is just a side series but we would like everybody to be able to be involved. We haven't talked about doing points or anything like that so it shouldn't matter if you miss a couple races here and there.
