The EPA is going through drastic measures to ban all car modifications in the United States.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States is clamping down hard on those who modify their cars. And not only modifications that are potentially harmful to the environment such as a catalytic converter delete, race fuels, free-flow cat-back exhaust systems and a few others, but each and every aftermarket performance part you can possibly think of. Another shocker is that they intend on banning racecars you build in your garage, purposefully built for the race track as well.
Only registered organisations who build racecars for track use at an official premises may be allowed. But, as we all know, this will put motor racing even more out of reach for people who want to get into the sport, as it will render it even more expensive. So if the EPA has their way, it is likely that only motorsports with huge budgets will remain. It would be similar to a kid who wants to try out soccer, but soccer balls and boots are illegal unless you belong to a club such as Manchester United.
There is a petition made available by the RPM Act (Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports) for US residents to sign, which will be taken to congress to fight this absurdity, or at least come to a less strict compromise. Which you can check out here.
