greg, with all do respect i believe there are some other factors that come into play with the early stages of this class not growing the way it should.. in the beginning all the peolpe with 440 stockers ran the class( me,behn,beres,duchene) while some built the new chassis.. you could tell that first year while the stockers one the points title that year,the new chassis that were being built were definetly the way to go.. so the next couple seasons happen and all the stockers fall away so numbers dip while people start building really competitive chassis and some step back to see how the class will evolve..alot of great drivers were running this class and then economy turned south and took a bite, drivers pursued other interests and here we have it.. this class is a great class and the time is now to capaitalize on the popularity from this last season to get some new blood flowing and id hate too see it fall away cause of certain changes that hamper class devolpement.. i do agree some thing needs to be done to help grow the class so lets look into ways that keep the numbers growing and the cost down... like jerry said, not everyone wants to race champ class.. just my 2 cents..

Just wondering how much difference is there in center to center distance from a production chain case to a champ? If I remember right most production cases are around 8 inches on the newer sleds?

hi. i have been involved with this class sense the start.the sled my son drives is a older a arm wahl chassis 15x 121 track.the rules package is pretty good.i would not want the 106 track to be legal as the sleds that are alreaby in class would have to update both track and suspension probably most guys would nt do it and just park there sled.the rail rule could probably go away as it would help to be able to run any suspension sense most sleds that you would buy have some sort of suspension .as far hoods run what fits your sled the best as long as it looks somewhat like oem.thanks pat duchene
