It appears that the A/Fuel car is just going to be the "Evolution" of TAD.... To the teams that are sticking with the B/AD trying to make advances....keep fighting the good fight and best of luck. To any teams out there that are holding on to the slim hope of a rule change, it really appears hope is lost. Start making plans without the hope of a rule change...whether that's sticking with it, switching to A/FD, TAFC, or a boat.... In the eyes of those who hold the strings over TAD, parity will 'never be reached' and it looks like there is 'pretty good parity right now'. I know some of the teams out there have stayed in the fight based off the past two year's rules changes. Don't expect any more. The lack of a dominant A/Fuel car out west will keep some of the top running BAD's out there in the points. At nationals, Vegas aside, the BAD's competitiveness will be resigned to running the best they can and hoping to catch a break.
