It's in his home province in Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada. When you race with the guys he races with. I bet it was more like a practice day. He has his stuff figured out by watching the video. Turning in the air and everything else. He is a great talent no matter where you are from. HB/OS/Byron/Proline are all very happy to have him on their team.

Incorrect; the car he ran was a production kit; no more Frankenbuggy. Gord said it would come to market in 2 months or so.

Prototype custom made parts are used for testing and evaluation. Successful prototypes go into production. All the factories follow this line.

I agree and I don't agree, i think the cheapest most practical parts go into kits, i don't think for a second manufctrs care how fast we get around the track, some of what's on a winning "race" car will never make it to production cause it's not cost affective, even if it makes the car a bit faster... associated cares about how fast the ryans go, HB its tessman, durango lutz..... you get the pic that's why as a mortal driver (regular) you have to ask and take pics cause none of em are kit form, n i say this cause i hear people say "well if it works it will b in the kit"..wrong don't wait for that, u gotta do some things on your own, i.e you really think HB didn't think the d8 needed a adjustable rear toe block? ofcourse they did, but team drivers prob had them for years, did the kit get it? no cause its not about how fast we go.....remember that
