    Big news from KOS... diesel motorspots going to see big changes.

    The King of the Streets competition just announced today that all trucks must be emmisions compliant to compete. I have a feeling this will become a trend for all street driven trucks. And only dedicated competition trucks will be exempt from emissions. Another reason to own a pre emmisions diesel.
