Predator valve spring explanation

I'm asking here, could you not come up with a method on testing springs based on the motors you've torn down already, that you know were not messed with ? And everyone's springs need marked. Sounds to me like If it came from a builder we know it's Illegal, From what I'm hearing I'd be considering making a trip to Cliff's and buying a bunch of seals with serial numbers on them.
Please post the guidelines a clone spring must fall under ? we all know about the 10.8 lb weight test what else ?
Then what would be so different from the springs coming with the motors ?
haven't been around long! dont know where or how big of races you tech but for a local Saturday night race keep entry fees super low, and do a engine swap style thing, track keeps up with who got whos, race then original owner gets his back? would something like that even work? just shooting from the hip with that one!

I could see something like that working, If it was done right out the gate but not after the class has grown so much, I don't tech anything I'm just advocating for NO rule change somehow.

Check out the Central Iowa Predator Kart Racing page and their rules on facebook. There is an engine claim and also a tire claim. As long as you get people to actually claim an engine this will work. Its when people shy away from it that it then becomes "something you dont do". As long as first is claimed every night and generally second or even 3rd this will keep the big spenders out. This class gets close to or over 20 karts a night now and just started this year. Just something for you to look at also and may help with tech since the claimed engine has to be legal as well as the person claiming if they swap so you will get to see a lot of engines.
