Whatever we do we will have to change physics next year which will also mean a new mod, so it will probably either be this or 2018, depends on whether this has any major bugs in it.


What have I missed, a forced physics change? or are we just talking the superficial stuff as per ususal.



It is planned to run CTS physics at tracks where NASCAR runs the new intermediate package for 1.5 mile tracks and over except Daytona 500 to adapt our league to NASCAR's new package.
Horsepower is pretty close.

The affected tracks are (from Jaski):
Las Vegas-1, California, Texas-1, Talladega-1, Kansas-1, Charlotte-1, Michigan-1, Chicagoland, Daytona-2, Kentucky, Michigan-2, Indianapolis, Las Vegas-2, Talladega-2, Kansas-2, Texas-2

So as I understand we will basically run two mods, the cup mod and the cts mod.

All this is much more likely to backfire on NASCAR than it is on us, because CTS at least works well in NR2003, but I think their package is gonna make cup racing at these tracks much less appealing.
I.e. no more 200+ mph at Michigan etc. I really don't get why NASCAR teams go along with this, maybe it cost pressure, but big ones cost money too lol.
But we'll have to wait and see I guess.

It should make our races at these tracks much greener though, since I believe the likelyhood of self spins is gonna diminish significantly with the reduces hp.

If I remember rightly, it was their idea.

I guess youre right, I don't know why I wrote that lol.

I think this is just another nail into NASCAR's coffin. They now have less horsepower in cup than in the other series.
All this fixes nothing. They just rubberband everyone together by effing with the aero to get what they say everybody wants, which is side by side racing, which no one ever asked for.

I would make nascar a spec series, except for certain areas of the body and just bring back the 90's including the collapse-prone cages from back then 8)

The other series (GNS, CTS, K&N) are all being pegged back a similar percentage. The only ones that aren't are the Whelen Mods and the regular non-NASCAR sanctioned Saturday night Late Model series, it's ironic that the series at somewhere like Bowman Gray has more powerful feeder series than NASCAR Cup.

I would have left the engines alone and cut off the side skirts and got rid of all the under body aero shit, as you say go back to a more road relevant 90's style body, it would have resulted in similar lap times to the crazyness that they have done, but you would see the cars move about more.

All will happen this year is the races will just be a slower version of what we had last year. They won't even stay in packs either since the slightest lift see's you loose 2 seconds.

Oh my gawd, this coffin is nailed so shut, even dynamite can't open it back up.

The stands will be so empty in truck and xfinity races. These two series are in even worse ashape than the cup series.
