You won't get any argument from me on this point. Too many corrections being made can be nearly as bad as making none at all. I would not have appreciated Advancetrak (Ford's name for ST)...

I think I've got enough. It may have started to get loose a couple of frames sooner than I first thought (0.067 seconds in real time).

As much as a lifetime of driving without such systems allows me to agree with you, this has to be each individual's experience-based decision. Those with little driving experience without the various...

If driving with the nannies all on is what you're accustomed to, a track that you have become familiar with is arguably the best place to start shutting them down.

I'm not surprised. But some sort of link, definition, or clarification should be made to clear up just where Street Legal falls within the existing rule structure. If it's intended to exist as a...

That was for Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman.

Now you have to show that Street Legal falls under those classes before you can invoke their rule and what they allow.

When you write rules, you can't look at it the same way as when you're a competitor and trying to find loopholes and little advantages. You have to think in terms of excluding, not including. I'd...

Chevy probably staggered the 1LE wheel widths because those sizes already existed for the ZL-1 and because doing so causes a small amount of understeer (rather than a larger amount when the tire...

I'm guessing that Chevy has been using different width wheels for same-size tires in the 1LE and Z/28 models to ensure a little limit understeer without resorting to throwing away front grip with...
