Chuck - I can't wait for this race! I look more forward to it each year. We'll see you guys there! Hey, you need to get down to Florida and come do some asphalt VTA. We've got some real sweet facilities.

Besides decreasing camber, what are some of the other things you fast "pros" do to keep the car under control as traction on a track comes up throughout the day?

with a 55T spur 48P you can get anywhere from 4.04-2.93fdr (34-47T pinions)

Robinson has spurs down to 49t 48P
