What you said is spot on Ken.... and when you toss in the history and what he did for my other track car — it was easy to be “all in”. I’m just happy that my line of credit was still good with Charley so I could get it all fixededededed up again! LOL 😂

talking to Greg's friend Bruce about the Vbox camera system and he suggested using the CANBUS info from the Holley Dominator to give much more info to the vbox display and use it for more tuning!! we also are adding brake pressure input to the Holley/ Vbox so that will display as well, this should be helpful in seeing what is happening on track and could help make for quicker lap times if that is the goal................
had time to remake the belly pan parts that were all tore up from Thunderhill.

Interesting tuning observation we had 1.5deg neg camber. in the car tire wear and temp 180 ish was close but we added 1/8 shim to give almost 2 deg. and the inside tire temp went WAY 220 if i recall up and the added wear showed as well. out came the shim may go 1/2 way and add 1/16 shim if we get any more test time on it. But that was very interesting to see a small change make a big difference.
.5 degree camber adjustment to me is alot when when you get over 1.0 negative camber. If its a couple tenths off from side to side I can feel the difference on the highway.

I have a “surgical procedure” tomorrow at The Mayo to clean my liver stents out — and HOPEFULLY that restores my energy level..... IF (big IF) that works — I’ll be headed to pick it up and try to run it mid May at Thunderhill....

We shall see. It’s anybody’s guess.

That’s why I’m so pissed at Sutton — #1 because he just flat out overstated his abilities.... and knowledge.... and that cost me TIME I don’t have. I felt good last year when it was “finished”.... Now the cancer has progressed a whole year....

Car talk is one thing Greg, but more importantly...I pray everything goes well with your medical procedure today. GOD shall cover you with his mercy and everything will be fine.
