Here are some observations from todays run. I do not know if any one noticed but i followed every one of you at one time today to observe your car...
1st) Foci need a higher spring rate in the rear that was very obvious..( the rear suspension would all most collapse under a high load and then rebound so fiercely that most of the cars were stepping out and losing rear traction.

2nd) They would also benefit from a much higher sway bar rate in the rear.

3rd) and really should be first get rid of these Stock tires..... They were junk... i held better lines on my street tires than most of you with a car at least 1/3 lighter...

4th) Brakes the SVT need more cooling in the form of brake duct work and a better compound of brake pad.. you guys were braking far to early and most of you had a lot of fade... ZX3 guys get rid of those rear drums... I think brakes were the biggest weak point on this run...

I can not judge the power to weight ratio that you guy's were pulling but you sure looked good out there today..
These are just observations that i made during the day and wanted to tell you guys but i was needed some where else and was un able to stay for lunch.
Good run.
