PTP man, thanks for a great answer to my question. It is something that actually answered a lot of follow up questions that I may have had. Picturing myself relaxing and perhaps just cleaning the car during the breaks was something that I really wanted to do.
Nitro Touring to me was a frenetic series of tweaking, truing tires, and making sure everything to the last details was just alright. Of course, it was really fun, but I wanted to have a slower pace in the pits than what I had at the tracks.
