I think you are assuming I was talking about Telehowski, but I was not. I was really talking about the self imposed handicap of my 2003 program. Or can you trophy in an arrive-n-drive car all year. I expected it would put me at a disadvantage. I think it was 4 or 5 different Spyders over the year. Each with their own set up issues. Consider the alternative, which was my old car in 2000. You have your own car, you tweak it, you drive it. You drive it all year. It is familiar to you. You have a routine. But I did not do that. I flew in, jumped into someone else's Spyder and hoped it was working right. On the west coast, I was in a borrowed car and running against two major players, both very good drivers.John Stimson said:The car that won C-Stock by an average of 0.8s per course over the 2nd place car had only $2000 shocks. I don't know if it arrived on a trailer, but I know it's a daily driver.
