Thanks tj . I AM taking really low hp stuff.

I did an interesting test today. I took out timing from a clone to take out some power and see what the data looked like. It was very interesting.

Eg. Corner entry speed is 30 mph. So ,brake to 30 mph, turn, and then get on the gas. It was interesting to notice that, even with foot flat on the gas pedal, as long as the steering wheel was turned it would not accelerate . It just kept the same speed through the corner even with the throttle all the way open.

It was definitely an eye opener.
