sorry slugger if thats what you take from my comments. tstruyk summed up my thoughts with much more diplomacy. maybe you should read it again cuz this is i am trying to get through to you.


ultimately i think what most are saying is if your budget is THAT tight, maybe taking a little time off would be a good thing for you.  you'll be missed, and then again welcomed back when times are better.

I guess I don't understand what the huge deal is? If you want to race, you will figure out how to do it. If you miss a race or two to pay for it, great. run the rest of the season or whatever you can do.

I ran a round with AHRMA and I had to rent a transponder from them. Fine, I wanted to race with them so I HAD to do it.

I hope they do switch to at least get a more robust current system . If I remember correctly, isn't the current system based on DOS?

Also since I don't own a transponder, I'll have to buy one.

I guess I'm not one that likes change. I'm not broke I can afford one I'm
 sorry I came off bitter it just seemed like one more cost of racing. If I stick to my plan.  Of a few races a year then I would rent. If I raced every weekend than. It makes sense to buy. I feel better today ben fox sent my crank back it looks great polished like chrome I'm ready for the high bank

If you can afford to have Fox polish your crank all your whining about being broke is crap.

I'm sorry but a lightened and polshed crank is an extravagance.  Ben did my 1000SS crank so I know what it cost.  Quit your bitching about being poor or stop spending money and completely unnecessary items and race.

the crank had been improperly balenced by someone else. I only had ben rebalence it. And he polished it then. I also don't think I ever said I was. Broke.   Ben is a good guy and has helped me a lot over the years and I figured giving him a plug would incriminate me but if it helps his business fine

Most commentary i think i've ever seen on this board....

I'm enjoying the many points of view so let me see if I can sum up a couple positiions

1) it's $420...not the end of the world....
2) We are having enough trouble filling grids, don't stick an additional barrier to entry into the mix right now
3) Whatever.....


Joking aside a bit I can see both points, I'm agnostic in the end to the decision (I voted yes for the record as I hate trying to remember to turn in the transponder) .  Personally in the end I question whether this is the right year to make the change or not given the other issues we as a group are facing, but I can see some of the reasons why it would make sense from kevin's posts now rather than later.  I understand where slugger is coming from on the cost issue, we as a group can't really afford to put any more racers out for an event or 2 let alone lose more of them permenantly for any reason.  So how can you accomplish both or at least what's the rational in the end for the decision that gets made, and I don't expect kevin to post up CCS financials or any such just maybe the basics so we the community can at least follow the overall reasoning - can't make everyone happy....

i know quite a few people who only do several rounds each year, and choose ccs over wera simply to save a few hundred on a transponder. Could drive people to explore other options. leave well enough alone.

 :lmao: Explore other options as in what - Not racing?  Most motorcycle race orgs are using the AMB system or similar and either requires you to have your own or rent one...

Me personally - after seeing maybe 1/2 of the problems CCS is constantly having with the current system... I will NOT be racing with CCS until they make the change to a more reliable system, perferably the AMB system they're looking at.    :ass:
