    This has already been tried before. SWMSRA did it years ago. The Magnets become
    impossible to enforce because of the gauss readings vs the shape of the magnets.
    The Peter Doane downforce meter may hold a better solution. A downforce limit for each class. A more exact measuring device may need to be developed. Today’s cars are very hard on molded plastic bodies made from styrene and ABS. Unless some Nylon hard bodies are introduced, people soon tire of exploding their favorite hard bodies.

      I just saw this question this morning, sorry for the delayed response. I hear what you’re saying, the gauss reading test will work if we stay within cars that are readily available, such as the Viper, Fusion and BSRT cars. With the cars I just listed there is no way for a competitor to use a wider or longer magnet. Any other brand that might still be out their suck or getting the car or parts is just about impossible. We have an issue here with a couple drivers that have Slottech stuff from 10 years ago with parts that no one else can get. This is unfair to all the other competitors; this is what I am trying to fix. With the Viper, Fusion and BSRT cars I can easily test the gauss reading right before or after a race. I also have down force meters and yes that could also be a great way to control the magnets for each class. I also see the problem with the hard body classes, I see what some of these bodies sell for on EBay, crazy prices. Thank you for the insight.
