I understand that people have different wants, but why take a car that is designed to have a balance between power and handling , a car that was never about running big horsepower or driving in straight lines, and then make it unbalanced and use it just for driving in straight lines? There are better choices for that. Do you think the Lotus Elise is meant to drive in straight lines?
Additionally, and perhaps I wasn't clear, but I wasn't necessarily judging them for driving on straight roads, I was suggesting that I ended up understanding why they couldn't really see what the drawback of having all that power because they only were using them on straight type roads.
The roads here, with that much power in a seven, you would either be spending all your time pussyfooting the throttle or waiting for the rescue crews to pull you out of the ravine
Also, I know all about Mojito, but he runs high speed events, sometimes on ovals, where he needs the power for top speed (and notice how he has to run all kinds of wings on it). Randy is talking about AX the car, which it seems to me, running big power would make your times go up in smoke, literally
