    Thanks Morris, it means a lot coming from you. Things have changed so much over the years, in the beginning the car was so fast I could beat other cars with out doing anything much except drive it. Then the other cars got faster and faster and faster. First I could manage with a tire and wheel upgrade, then some engine stuff, then minor chassis upgrades, then major chassis upgrades and full on race engines and finally ABS brakes. The new cars are so good now especially with electronic aids that it is getting really difficult to find areas to improve. Rules prohibit meaningful aero upgrades like you have so all I am left with at this point would be carbon brakes and wheels and I am not sure that would meet a cost benefit ratio. I am hoping this years electronic data acquisition upgrade will help us enough with chassis tuning to keep it competitive for the near term. Our chief competitors have had their cars on a 7 post rig in North Carolina so they will be tougher than ever assuming we get back to running this year.

    That is interesting. I may have to have a lot more coffee before I fully understand they learn out of that.

    I agree Dan. I watched another couple videos also and what they did not tell you is what information they received and what they did with it. I understand the basics but I'm sure there is a lot more to it.
