I hear ya, Im no stranger to auto crossing, and .5 seconds is a long
time. I think its great he came in second. I hafta agree though, doesnt
seem fruitful to sink $$ into a 4K for nationals. It has too many things
against it that other cars are more suited to. (like not mushy stock
suspensions....) But after all, he wast AT the nationals!! :)
PS, I doubt **I** could come in 2nd if there were only 3 people running!
I guess thats why it sounded so amazing to me. I remember how tough it
was to squeek out wins at Can-Am and formula atlantics.. and now Im
learning (now that I have my Pro Rally license) that if we were .5 sec
ahead of second place, we would be rich and famous!
Bruno look out!
