As you all know there has been an ongoing discussion of TRA motor cert policy as it relates to USR (branded motors).
On the issue of DOT paperwork several "speculations" have been offered as to what TRA actually says after rejecting the paper work. Everything from fraud papers, to OEM name not matching the USR brand, challenges of ownership despite written proof and even law cites supporting it.
To date the only efforts TRA has engaged in has been direct contacts with DOT in an active effort to get the paperwork INVALIDATED so they will be able to claim it is in some way not valid. This disregards the fact that if it is "invalidated" that would mean it was VALID prior to the invalidation.
The strategy of TRA to intentionally invalidate any government document is disturbing.
Then on the issue of ATF permits, we all now know they are NOT required by law, by NFPA since it does NOT override law, and is ONLY required by arbitrary club rule by people who cannot read and understand the law. Even when explained to them in detail by their own attorneys in writing in minute detail.
Furthermore a submission was made with a proper LEMP and even that submission was refused.
DEMAND (public notice)
TRA (and each agent, assign, member or representative) is hereby notified to cease and desist all contacts with DOT as I have no pending application for motors to be certified with TRA. Disclose all such DOT contacts to date to Jerry Irvine personally.
TRA, State when you consider the MOST RECENT application for motor certifications to have occured, whether or not successful.
TRA has gone on the record of regularly following these threads without replying to them "in public". Great reply to me in private.
