    Default Traction control

    Watching the Wild West shootout, Ricky Thornton jr moves up 6 or more spots in 8 laps, going into the corner after hes back on the gas and back on the bars you can see flames shooting out of the header. Looks like a misfire but hes moving forward on a fast track. Is this how traction control can be seen? More easily seen when hes in the shade. Hell be racing again later tonight. Look for the flames

    Rev limiter. I only noticed it when he was running the top from the end of the straight to mid corner, meaning he was out of gear and on the chip a lot, but still had his foot in it.

    That is caused by trail breaking, if you drag your brakes it keeps the car loaded up in the corners.

    8-9 years ago I was welding some midget pads together made by red stuff and could trail brake my stock car and just keep the gas wide open on a slick dusty track and pull it down to corner speed with my brakes and slowly release them or modulate them and drive off the corner like a scalded bear....

    if the car is loaded up its ready to go. think about it in a modified if you let that car drop all the way down, it doesnt go forward at its max efficiency until everything is loaded back up...

    they keep them loaded and ready now with shocks more than anything.

    imca outlawed ceramic rotors ten years ago because of trail breaking and whiners.

    If you don't think the guy beating you is cheating, you can't feel good about your failure.
