No need to change the rules. The mono rules we have now are simple and still somewhat vague. We don't need to complicate them any more.
The IMPBA stepped mono rule needs to be changed to reflect the technological advances in real racing mono design.
Our 39" microBurst has a solid 1" X 1" square aluminum block on the transom to extend the strut back. This is not a lot different the the first boat in Christian pics. So is the back of my square block now the transom and the original transom is now a step?
Yeah but they dont allow steps Andy, thats caveman. Alot of the new modern monos have steps, no need to stay in the dark ages simply to prevent complication. Honestly I never understood complicated in that sense. They have rules we just follow them. If we are constanly looking for grey areas why have rules at all? No matter, to not allow stepped monos in the mono class is backwards. Making them compete with hydros is really backwards. If were to be representative of the real boats, which is whats implied by the need to have sponsor logos, numbers, and drivers, then why not be totally accurate and allow stepped monos?I like new stuff.
