Just google IHRA Dirty Dozen and you will find the list.

Some say there is no proof they were caught, and it was a witch hunt, some say they were caught red handed.

The fact is, some people, including more than likely all the names on that list and a bunch more, used it until people started to know what to look for.

You can buy them on the internet, but I'm sure as hell not going to go track down the site for you.

It is my understanding the Mattys are still active in bracket racing... but that may be incorrect.

The bottom line is, if you use this you are cheating. If you need this to win you might as well pack up and go bowling. But saying that, with tech as lacking as it is these days, espcially at local tracks.... there are probably people using it all over the country. He's still making them, so someone must be buying them.
I didn't say I wanted one Sean. I was just curious about who would stoop as low as that.

That particular group of racers was the scourge of Norwalk for many years. Can't even count the number of times the racers complained and accused this bunch of cheating, we were all told that they had looked at them and that basically..."they're just that good". While I'll agree that there are just better racers than others these guys won most every where they went.... kinda like winning the lottery every time you play it eventually raises some eyebrows. To this day I've never heard of one of these guys ever offering an apology to anyone they cheated, guess they figure they did nothing wrong.

Only the dumb ones got caught. The smart ones may have the magnets imbedded inside a carbon fiber driveshaft and the sensor in a tubular safety hoop.

They do not work off of the rear tires due to tire spin. Has to be done off of a front wheel, and obviously it has to maintain contact with the pavement.

That's how I understand it. But that may be incorrect.
