All of that stuff is way over my head. He has a lot more in his webpage then he used to have.
I like the chapter on launch control....... And you used to think I launched the Stealth hard. Dennis Grant was cutting 1.5- 1.6 second 60' times. I can't imagine all the broken parts I would have had if I was getting 10 PSI just sitting at the start. When I was autocrossing the Stealth I was seriously thinking about putting a launch control on my car. I figured I would be the first autocrosser that was useing a 2 step...... Little did I know it was allready being done.

That is a very good set of articles. A bit of it is way over my head but cool nonetheless. I hope everyone will take time to read it.

Hey D.V. - where did you find it?

Hey Dave,
I actually came across this article over a year ago. Don't remember how I found other then just surfing the web. I have known about Dennis Grant even before I started autocrossing though.
