    If you enjoy competing at the track and want to protect your ability to keep doing it, read on...

    The EPA has been ruling that it is illegal to modify street cars for track racing *and* that it's illegal for manufacturers to produce parts to modify street cars for such a purpose. Their rulings have to do with emissions, but SEMA and the Motorsports industry oppose these rulings as it can severely limit or even even kills entire sectors of our motorsports hobby, especially those at the higher levels of competition.

    The RPM Act is a bipartisan bill introduced that protects motorsports actors from these EPA rulings.

    1.) Here is a link to SEMA's webpage on the issue.

    will do and i obviously support our cause but this always comes up around sema time and then goes away. i think the aftermarket industry just gets nervous. i dont necessarily blame them either.
