    you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

    I think the comparison to 'current F1 superstars' cheapens the letter a little bit.

    can some one confirm something for me.

    I remember reading that either Sir Jack, Bruce maclarren or Rob (Bob) Mattich (sp) was the first person to put a wing for down force purposes on a car?

    it was waaaay back when it happened and I think it's debut was at an aussie or NZ track.

    don't want to go off-topic, but that proposal has been floating around since I was a member of the Pakenham Auto Club, and that was about 15 years ago.....
