Mechanical tear down

Weights and measurements

This happens at every event (visual). If a protest is filed (i.e another competitor believes that another is cheating) then the car is impounded, then torn apart to look at the internal mechanicals and so forth.

IF..BIG IF, an infraction is discovered, then the guilty party is stripped of all points and is responsible for any charges to inspect the car AND put it back together.

If there is no fault found, then the individual who filed the protest is responsible for any expense (at the owner's CHOICE) to restore the car.

It would be very difficult to hide an LSD from the experienced eyes of an AX crowd.
i assume tha happens more often than not huh.. i've never been to an auto x even so i have no idea. So they actually take apart the tanny? thats nuts.. wouldn't the person just admit they had one? instead of wasting all tah time... geesh

Usually, they do admit to it.

There is too much money at stake for them to carry the lie through.
