PostSubject: Should 4wd be allowed in Season 5?   Sat Mar 12, 2011 7:16 pm

Got bored and know this series is structured after the alms series. So I found the final revision of the 2011 ALMS rulebook and this is what I found...

9.2 - Drive train :
9.2.1 - Are prohibited :
a/ Four wheel drive ;
b/ Automatic or semi-automatic gearboxes and differentials with electronic, pneumatic or hydraulic control, etc. ;

9.2.2 - Are only permitted :

a/ Mechanical limited slip differentials working without the help of a hydraulic or electric system. • A visco-coupling system is not considered as a hydraulic slip control device provided that no
control is possible when the car is running. Traction control that operates solely through the engine control unit (ECU). Wheel speed sensors are permitted. A direct mechanical linkage (rod, cable) between the gear shift lever operated by the driver and the gear-box. If the car is fitted with a system without mechanical link, it must be in compliance with article 9.2.6. below. A simple open-loop electrical switch activated directly by the gear shift lever and acting on the ignition system of the engine.

(This is nothing personal towards anyone, I just think from a driving standpoint we should all be in this the same)

If this were made a rule I think drivetrain swaps should be allowed if you swap from AWD to RWD

If we went to RWD only I would then allow Drivetrain swaps. But most likely not just due to that fact that there is an AWD lambo in the ALMS Series.

I just wanted to point out I voted yes because the thread is "Four wheel drive should be banned for season 5", I didnt realize the actual poll question was "Should 4wd be allowed in Season 5?" and in that case I vote no

UPDATE
+1 no
- 2 yes

would be easier to pay attention when you read the question, or have the voting open until the end of the season

I say no to awd but yes to awd to rwd swap it will open up the field for more cars.
We are at the end of F3 and it would be nice to have some other cars to chose from.
