    Well, the OP posted about contingency, then he asked about the difference between sponsorship and contingency, then it went to shit when Chris wanted to comment about something he knows nothing about, and talk about his vanilla, paint rollered bike that is neither "well" set-up, nor un-crashed at yellow group track day pace.

    pitbull has contingency but now requires you to use their sprockets and steering damper. so if you go with pitbull, then you're not able to use Vortex for contingency.

    every tire manufacturer pays contingency except Pirelli, and I'm not getting into that shit show about why.

    you really just have to look into what products you want to use, what their terms are, and determine if it's worth it to you.
    Correction, Vortex pays up to 5th

    Re: School me on contingencies

    contingency is a way for a company to say they pay 10 dollars to racers when they actually pay 1 dollar...

    My advice is not to worry about contingencies. Go race your bike and focus on having fun. It's gonna be expensive, with or without vouchers.

    I disagree. It can be extremely cheap with contingencies along with credits from championships.

    And I just found out 01-03 GSXR 600 and 750 pads are the same as the ones used in the motomaster 4 piston caliper on the tard. Looks like I'll be trying out SBS too.

    Is that why you quit racing for a while?

    "Extremely cheap"?

    Curious what ultimately came out of your pocket after all was said and done because it must have cost you at least a few thousand by the time you got to....what...16's or so?

    I've never used contingencies before. This will be the first year I will be doing them. Should have done them this year too. Could have done pretty well for myself this year.

    And I quit racing because I had NO expendable cash

    A few thousand [a season] is an extremely cheap racing habit in my book, compared to what I know others have spent even on an SV program.

    I made a spreadsheet for the cost of next season and was shocked. It was pretty lean, not a lot of "unexpected" costs included except $1K for crash repairs, and it came to an amount that should make me question the sustainability of a race program on my current income.
