I know how you feel. At the state race in Ft. Meyers, my first ever state race, Paolo gave me some info on rear toe.

I really didn't want to break anything. I ran the car and it was all over the place. I managed to finish the qualifier without crashing but there was definately something wrong with the car. I thought I broke a shock, lost a dog bone or something... As it turns out I had 1 rear wheel with 3 degrees of toe in, as I wanted, and the other had almost 1 degree. I was positive I had set both wheels to 3. And "no" I was not drinking that night.
I know the feeling and can sympathise with you, Jag.
Did I meet you during the Winternats?

No we didn't meet unfortunately. I was there on Sunday but I had to leave right after the 1/8 A main. I was looking for your car but didn't see it. Where were you pitted?

I did but like I said, not only he forgot to bring the microscope and telescope, he was spending all his time gawking at bouncing aerobics students!
