So I was thinking about the neon drivers and their motor mount. If they want to remain fully ST legal, they have to use the stock mount that has a very short life span.
I can't imagine that allowing neons to change the motor mount in question would give them an unfair advantage.
I'm sure that are lots of other cars that also have well-known little issues that aren't ST legal if fixed properly.
For example, the OEM clutch in the Integra GSR is very un-Honda-like in it's longevity.
Some cars may not have any specifically "emissions legal" aftermarket exhaust parts available (see the "problem with STS/STR" thread).
I just think that it might be possible to make a little list of exceptions to the rules in cases such as these, without disturbing the relative equity of the class. Of course it all has to remain within reason ... arguments like "the stock diff in my VR6 keeps blowing, I want a quaife and I want to stay in STS" wouldn't really be fair.
Or am I crazy? Will the motor mount give the neon that little edge it needs to become a class killer?
