    A tiny tidbit of input on that.. There are a couple local S13 guys who run WRL/Chump/Lemons.. they've used stock, junkyard, and "mildly rebuilt" engines, and my stock S14 pulled them all on the straights. that could also be due to driving prowess and car itself (I have mild aero and expect corner exit speeds would be higher)... but I've come off the end of a turn right behind a couple of them and simply driven by them on the straights.

    The first time I encountered them at a WRL race in my car, I was expecting to be nice to a fellow 240 racer and simply bump-draft them down the straight.... I caught them so fast I wound up hitting them hard enough to bend my bumper support and knocked out my turn signals. whoopsies. not gonna try to bump draft those guys!
    Come to the Northeast and see if you can do that with us

    But, seriously I'd say that's 99% driving prowess and many racers voluntarily dismiss that and point blame at hardware due to ego. "CHEATERS!"

      You know Matt93SE is a true Texan when....


      ...he turns a WRL race into a demolition derby on the straights.
