I understand this popular item used by many in footbrake to set launch rpm is now not allowed in Loose Rocker and Jared Pennington races. I always wanted to try one out, but not anymore. Does anyone know why they’re prohibiting them?

When using the hand controllers it is basically a manual 2 step.

You set the controller with a stop to hold the throttle at a constant RPM. It is much easier than holding the RPM at XXXX with your right foot, while bumping with your left.

I understand. Sounds logical. Too bad they're being outlawed by two of the biggest footbrake race promoters in the business. I'll continue gassing the throttle with only my right foot.

Nothing but a manual choke cable.

Because they are not legal in IHRA or NHRA.

Ok. I must have missed it in the rules.
