Actually one of the downloadable software updates from Tekin had a blinky profile the was not quite blinky enough. It was discovered to have an unfair advantage. That's probably the reason for the extra precaution. If that's what it is.

Thanks but really its a 1 man show.... Rob King is the "King" of USVTA and rules as so. Rob does reach out to others for opinions on things and to test items just to double check his findings but really everything USVTA has to come from him or its really not USVTA its just the ramblings of crazy trans am racers....

I wont mention brand names but Tekin isn't the only one in that boat. I just hope the current approved verison of all manufacturers software is blinky enough. All I know is my car is not the fastest going down the straight in either Trans AM or USGT and yes its the same blinky Tekin in both!

The veterans of this class know that the fastest car down the straight is rarely the one that finishes in first place.

Well, its still coming from a crazy trans am racer when it comes from Rob. But a voice with the added overtones of authority.

I've seen this look before from Myron back in October during the Halloween classic in Cleveland. Then he woke up and won the VTA A main.
