the itch is growing stronger, especially since I just dumped a bunch of money on parts that should be arriving shortly:
Motegi Traklites (already posted in the tire section), my current tires will be transferred over for now, but I'm looking into some 215/50r16 hankooks (not much available in that size)
F2 Intake
Trubendz 2.5in flexback w/ hi-flow cat
F2 Rotors
Hawk HPS pads
eibach pro springs/FRPP dampers (still sitting here since christmas)
F2 balance shaft delete

I can't wait to get all of this stuff on!

^what's really getting on my nerves is getting the approval package through the base. It's about half way through and everybody is taking their sweet ass time getting back to me each time.

^ I've looked into it and can't find anything about it in the rule book. the only thing that comes close is for Street Touring para 14.10 H "Any crankshaft damper or pulley may be used." Says about the same thing in street prepared as well. So the way I read it is that you can add such things, just doesn't say anything about removal, which in my little world means you can remove it if so equipped. I guess my justification is that I'm not changing any of the actual components of the working engine (boring cylinder, changing cams, etc) just removing a secondary harmonic balancer. Though it can be read as Engine and Transmission must remain unmodified unless specifically mentioned. If anything I'll ask somebody from my region before I do it.
your thoughts?

99 times out of 100, if it doesn't specifically state that you can do it, then it's not legal.

I spent about 1/2 an hour searching as well, and couldn't find anything specific to the balance shaft.
^^^Other than balancing the rotating assembly is not allowed in ST.
In fact, "balance shaft" doesn't even show up in a search in the PDF.

Isn't the balance shaft that you're deleting internal to the engine?
IOW, it's not external like the crank damper or a pulley, so 14.10 doesn't apply at all.

I guess I should peruse the Duratec forum and read up on the balance shaft delete a bit more.

I suppose at our regional level it's not a big deal, but Divisionals or Nationals could get a bit iffy.
Then again...maybe you shouldn't have mentioned it at all. LOL!
