So the 4 cylinder idea followed the 23/5/2007 publication of the "Power-Train Regulation Framework"? Is there a publication revision that includes this, or some other source?checkered wrote:It's something that thedeluge wrote:Where did the 4 cylinder talk originate?
FIA appointed think tank threw in the air, I think, after the manufacturers weren't so thrilled with the 10.000 rpm limit accompanying the 2.2L configuration and were even less sympathetic towards racing with diesel based technology. If it were up to me, I'd go with limiting the Joules available per race first and foremost and start considering energy flow limits as a secondary matter. Equally, I can't see why in an energy restricted series it's so important for everyone to race with exactly the same powertrain configuration or a standardized engine block.
The cost issue is tricky of course, but there's a pretty good argument in putting a great deal of investment in big things rather than details if the money is gonna get spent anyway. Or that's at least where I'd start my logic in considering what's "spendworthy". But as said, I won't go into details just yet.
