So I say if they have been playing fast and loose with the rules that I hope Charlie cracks down on them. I am so tired of a society where finding ways to circumvent the intent of the rules is a way of life.
Do you have any understanding of what was happening during 'hot' blowing? I am not sure that in all the discussions it was made clear exactly what was happening with the throttle position, timing, fuel delivery and pedal position.
Before you guys babble out some simple explanation, think a little about the all the driving conditions this type of system has to account for. It would be my opinion that the new rule correlating the pedal directly to the throttle position rules out 'hot' blowing.
There is nothing illegal or problematic with a 5K idle setting. I do not know if that would make for an unusual pit sound. Could Some teams be using a high idle setting to cool the valves as they did in the past? Decelerating with a high idle setting could sound odd.
