As I posted on the Facespace group. We need to clean up the mishmash of standards in the vehicle specific charts in the Prod Rules. There is no standard for metric or imperial measurements, they are just slapped on the specific vehicle line regardless of where that vehicle came from. So its annoying to try to compare two cars and have to do conversions at the same time.

I volunteer to re-write them to a common set of standards, preferably metric, but obviously things like track width and wheel base in metric don't mean a whole lot to folks, so perhaps we should cover how we want it before I undertake this.

Before you get too far, I would write the CRB and volunteer to do this. I would hate to see you go through all of this work, only to have the CRB say "thanks for your input" and then do nothing to change the GCR.

Brett, I have a sign just as Tim described "Thanks For Your Input" :hand: from IIRC the Chairman of the Spec Miata SMAC during a lunch meeting at the Runoffs a few years ago. It hangs in the my shop. :mrgreen:

I will see your "TFYI" and trump it with a COA letter that says "You are right that the Neons are illegal for this year but we will be changing that next year" Needless to say, I lost...

You want a useful project? Find all the correct throttle body sizes.

Should be simple. The GCR Prod line has a specific model, list the one for it. If it has various models, list them. Anything outside base must be specified so not needed unless specified. How about starting with EP?
