I'll make it simple, a coupe tenths is easier to find then 9, and a lot less expensive.You can do whatever you want to tighten up the field (reduce HP, aero, wave arounds, free pass....) and at the end of the race the gap between 1st and 36th is technically closer than it ever used to be. All I'm saying after all this is the guys that always run in the back of the back will still be in the back of the pack. You've made that guy that was 36th technically closer to the front in now that maybe he's only 30 seconds or one lap down now, but you haven't made him anymore more competitive than he was before. This guys is not all of a sudden going to be knocking down top 10's, he just doesn't doesn't have the speed and resources to run in the top 10.
If you used to be 1 second off the pace of the top 20 cars and through rule changes you're now only a couple 10ths off the pace of the top 20 you're still slower than them. Last time I checked you usually don't get in front of someone by driving slower than them.
