I think the writers are on strike right now. the car has not been touched since before C5Fest. the shop had "other" work to do first...

we will get it figured out soon i hope. I will make sure to let you know when the next season airs.

Do you think they'll do their analysis and then find out it wasn't their fault? Or do you think they'll at least be honorable and straight up with you in determining what really happened?

I'm always a bit suspicious of a shop doing its own internal analysis...

Why is it no matter what shop or what build you have the shop always has "other" work to do first...

That makes a huge difference... after driving the RPO car on the autocross I'm a believer.

I just need to find a different car to bring to the fest next year.
