Unless suspension mods are cumulative also. Add for springs, then shocks, then sways, etc? Exterior engine mods are cumulative? Ecu+1, intake +1, etc? If exterior engine mods aren't cumulative I could then run R-comps over 41 with 7" wheels and be at 14 pts.

Am I figuring this right?
All mods cumulative as the example illustrates. 100 treadwear is 6 pts

Not to beat a dead horse but to be absolutely clear. Suspension mods are also cumulative? Springs +2. Shocks +2. Sways + 2. and so on? Would bushings also be a mod that ads points? End links? Where would that stop?

Can we just come out to watch? I don't think track time is an addiction I want to feed right now.

I seriously doubt that, because if it were, then I'd be penalized more points for having coilovers and a sway bar than if I were boosted with a full ecu and a big ol' wing.

What rules are you reading? I have no points listed for "shocks" or "sways".
