Thumbs up Important - ignited we stand


Fellow Gear Heads need to act on this ASAP. Take a moment and be heard!

DiabloSport, now part of Powerteq, LLC wanted to take a moment to make you aware of a significant piece of legislation the EPA has proposed to make law. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a regulation to prohibit conversion of vehicles originally designed for on-road use into race cars. The regulation would also make the sale of certain products for use on such vehicles illegal. The proposed regulation was contained within a non-related proposed regulation entitled "Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Engines and Vehicles-Phase 2."

DiabloSport, now part of Powerteq, LLC would like to applaud SEMA for their strong, uniform, and compelling response to this overreach by the EPA. We realize many of you may use Superchips, Edge Products, and DiabloSport products on your trucks, cars, and Jeeps. We're also well aware that many of you tow your race cars or recreational vehicles with your trucks. Luckily, SEMA has worked with Congress and a bill has been introduced to help ensure our freedom to race and modify vehicles. The RPM Act stipulates that vehicle conversions used exclusively in competitions do not violate the Clean Air Act. We agree and encourage you to raise your voice by signing the RPM Act. The passions, livelihoods and freedoms of gearheads are at stake!

The U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate recently introduced the "Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2016" (RPM Act), which would ensure that converting street vehicles to race cars used exclusively in competition does not violate the Clean Air Act.

Click here to take action now! Support the RPM act.

I say they can eat it with this crap. I have my daily driven race truck and I will do what I want to it when I want.

Exclamation

On my political soapbox for just a moment - one of the current Presidential candidates pledges to eliminate ALL of the current and proposed EPA Bull$h!+ legislation perhaps even the entire agency, also he vows to eliminate the IRS, institute a flat 10% income tax, sever the federal education department with the common core crap and completely kill ObamaCare...sure hope the eventual nominee against the Hildebeast will have the gonads to consider implementing these pledges too. The right selection for November will go a long way in reversing federal governmental intrusion into every breath of air we breathe. Thanks to Bill for alerting us about this potential breach of liberty by the EPA!

My 2 cents

Let your voices be heard. Let everyone know we can act on these dictators.
You see where we are now with all the sheeple grazing in the grass.

We can (pardon the pun) Ram this in they're backside so they'll turn around and recognize we will not stand by while our freedoms are trampled upon.

Be heard brothers. Use the link and open your exhaust.
