What specifically has piqued the interest of the N.H.R.A. Tech Dept. and at what class level and oh by the way should they not be appreciated for this.
What is the core issue, inquiring minds need to know.
I believe it's SC, SG, SST, SS and STK. What they are doing in Comp is too hard for me to understand.

People have figured out how to embed the circuitry inside the MSD Grid box making it very difficult for tech officials to spot. However, the Personal Computer (PC) in the trailer will have the illegal software installed on it. The new language makes it clear Tech officials can demand access to the PC. NHRA should be applauded for their efforts to protect the integrity of our sport and attempts to maintain a level playing field for the vast majority or racers that don't use such devices.

Anyone that thinks this is a conspiracy theory or the technology isn't readily available for purchase on the internet, hasn't researched the issue.
Bingo!!!!

I thought that honesty and integrity was an important part of being a great racer. Those virtues were important to me and my friends when we raced. I guess things have changed for a few.

Pretty darn sure that most racers are very proud of their honest racing qualities.

I'm not going to give any specific information.... but I can tell you personal stories of things that make even us go "huh?" when it comes to parts.

I'll just leave it at that.

Assuming NHRA has the will to enforce the rule, and the ability to employ the due diligence - the fall out and subsequent fix seems pretty easy. If you are caught cheating at that level of sophistication to have artificially replicated ETs you get a lifetime ban from NHRA events. Strong deterrent and no repeat offenders. When honor isn’t enough of a reward, a giant hammer can be substituted. Flame away....

If you don’t think people will cheat, please read the section where people were talking about teaching kids and the pine derby cars
those kids are now grown up and racing

Bear with me on this but one of my favorite books is John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden”. Along with revealing much about human nature as well as the concept of free will, it really explores how people are so much alike but can be wired so differently such that their value systems are unfathomable to most of us. In this context it is inconceivable to me that racers would cheat in such a manner but I’m realistic enough to know it happens. Hopefully NHRA will do due diligence on this but for those who get away with it they should know karma is a bitch. Meanwhile they can go on living their miserable lives where there are no boundaries or values. Off my soapbox...
