Something we reported on back in November is the 2011 Formula Drift new tire/weight rule they added to the rulebook. We have heard some mixed feedback from the grid but some positive ones from large teams in the industry. One team spoke off the record with me about how horrible of an idea it was but nobody has said something publicly until now. Conrad issued this statement out on his Facebook page a few minutes ago. The quote below comes from him and 441lbs. is quite a task for weight reduction.
“Really bummed out at the updated Formula Drift tire to weight rule. It basically hasn’t changed anything as far as evening out the field. I would have to shave another 441lbs. out of my Camaro to be competitive.”
