<span style='color:red'>Lucky Bob wanted the cars to be as presented by the manufacturer as opposed to letting things go wild with Tyco's and what have you joining the party. To clarify one item. The Slottech cars come with brass weights on their plastic front rims. Those weights are under the jurisdiction of Rule 3 and must be used</span>.

Well the <span style='color:red'>nit picking </span>has started again heres my thought on it

I strongly feel if Hopra were to adopt the <span style='color:#BF0000'>Lucky Bob Rules </span>which I believe are far better than The Exclusive G Jet Rules by Bsrt.

Which Im sure some very Professional & Experienced <span style='color:#BF0000'>Racers</span> have contributed to & assisted getting it to the Table, Unlike the <span style='color:#BF0000'>few </span> who have done nothing but provide <span style='color:#BF0000'>envy </span>and <span style='color:#BF0000'>spite</span>.

I feel this would be the<span style='color:#BF0000'> Best </span>move for<span style='color:#BF0000'> Hopra </span>and many other <span style='color:#BF0000'>Groups</span> who are trying and running the Pro Jet Class <span style='color:#BF0000'>Inclusively</span>.

And far as Third Party Parts, <span style='color:red'>I can follow and race the Lucky Bob Rules as they Are and if all things go right and I'm looking forward to doing so and having Fun</span>.

But if I had my way Third Party parts would definitely be allowed as long as they are made to the Original Manufacturer Specs which is allowed in all the other <span style='color:#BF0000'>Pro Classes</span> the <span style='color:#BF0000'>Pro Jet Class </span>should be no different.

All of these weird names and ideas that many of the Bsrt contention is bringing up are simply smoke screens and extreme efforts to ensure and protect the integrity of Bsrt's creation the Gjet now with that the Exclusive gjet by itself is no good for a Group like <span style='color:#BF0000'>Hopra</span> but it is great for the <span style='color:#BF0000'>G3 Championships</span>


The Pro Jet Class is designed to be <span style='color:#BF0000'>Different</span> from the Guru's intention from the beginning.

<span style='color:#BF0000'>The Pro Jet Class was designed to be a closer bridge and appetizer and support to Super Stock.</span>

It was never designed or pretended to be as what The Guru intended who claims his car to be Non Magnetic and doesn't use downforce - whom interesting - which is Totally ok with Me .

The Pro Jet Class has its own identity by using Reduced Downforce as compared to todays Super Stock by eliminating the Traction Magnets .

The easiest part about this is I like many others already have SS equipment, especially Tires and knowing what already what works on most tracks.The transition to & from the Pro Jet Class to Super Stock has been easy and Less time consuming.

In addition to this I have found like Many others is that the <span style='color:#BF0000'>Pro Jet Class </span>cars are actually <span style='color:#BF0000'>Cheaper and Easier </span>to Maintain especially being ran at a reduced Voltage between 12- 14 volts, Resulting in less, wear and tear equaling More Fun !!! .
