Nigh,    Yes..... although this is tough on some of the families and their kids I have been told some will be posting the latest round of letters from the QMA National Board. It has been an ongoing practice of QMA. Many of the people cower to the threats from the board and say nothing. SAD

Here is my letter that I received this week from QMA (2 links: 1 for each page). I am the President at Little T and looking forward to running under USAC this season.  With this letter, QMA kicked out a 6 & 7 yr old...so much for Racing for The Kids!

It wouldn't be the offseason if there wasn't a major mess up by QMA. It seems to be fast becoming a tradition.

Wow! That last paragraph of the letter got me!

"membership in QMA is a privaledge not a right and should never be taken for granted"

Are you freakin kidding me? Arrogance will be the death of QMA.  It is a right if you pay your money just like everyone else does and it is a free country to speak your mind.

It is sad when little people with a complex get into a position of power and try to throw their weight around.

I thought this was a USAC website, why all the QMA don't they have a webxite of their own?

QMA does have a forum, BUT.... you have to be a "member in good standing" and aproved by the powers that be to participate. Even openly discussing these letters would get you thrown out of QMA.

I think this is the best thing about USAC.  Whenever I have called or spoken to James, Kevin, Jason or anyone else at USAC they made me feel like they felt privileged I chose to be a part of their organization.  That is what keeps people coming back!

USAC gets it!  You are right...the racers make the show..they spend the money to make the show.  USAC does a great job and make the racers feel welcome and understand if they did not have the racers, they have no show.  They also listen to the racers!  They may not always respond so nicely...right James?  But they listen anyway. 

Sorry...just have to poke fun at James...think I kinda got on his nerves last year.  Never one to bite my tongue.  But have to give credit where credit is due...James and USAC do a great job...we have enjoyed QM racing more since joining USAC then ever before!  That is why even with Austin turning 16...we do not want to move on...having too much fun in USAC .25!  Wish we could start over again!

I have to applaud what QMA is doing with the engines going forward!  Hopefully they don't come out with some crazy rules package that makes it so we can't run our same engines we already have.

Streitas20,  you know that they will do that just to make it difficult for the QMA people to run USAC events. It is the SOP of that organization.

Good guess Eric...

From the QMA site:
Why won't QMA allow the "decking" of the Animal Engines like another organization?
Expense - Right now a member can purchase an Animal engine and gearbox, put the gear box on and go racing without paying an engine builder to machine the head.  The new "M" series animal will have the Tech specifications controlled without the additional expense.

My thoughts on it:
So basically they are going to go the same way they did with the Honda engines and reward the people who can go out and buy 20 engines and take them apart and have every part measured and weighed and then build one top notch engine out of it all.  Instead of allowing the decking so everyone spends an extra $200 and is at the same specs.

As far as I know the m series animal come decked from briggs so all you need to do is bolt on a gear box and go race

Well to me it looks like its a win for usac on the animal. If you are a qma member with an animal , you can run usac but not vise versa
