Yeah, I see their other idea was to allow one power adder only, as in
turbo OR nitrous, but not both.  Anyone willing to spend half of what
some of those Honda guys are spending could easily kick their butt's
without the nitrous.  Joe could go significantly quicker if he were
to spend some serious bucks, I would think.  Another idea of theirs
was to require the RWDs to weigh at least 2700 lbs.  I don't think
that'll gain them as much as they're thinking ;-).
