My game changer comment is basically for us TORCS racer as far as the starts go. With a dead engine start for the gas models, it doesn't apply to the Alta. So this could be a problem at some time. Probably way down the road.

Was wondering what you meant by that.

Will have to look for a video of that start and see how much he won by.

He won the class by over 2 mins.

Nope, he might be guilty of carrying sandbags but Dale wouldn't cheat! He's generally 1st or 2nd.

He passed me on lap 2 when I stalled(one of many stalls), which scared the crap out of me since there was no engine noise. I followed him for part of lap 2, and he definitely didn't cut the track or anything like that.

I bet it's weird getting passed by silence!

Agree, but you missed the humor/point Rob.
