John I agree there is about seven percent increase to be had... but when I
started investigating it everyone was so proud of the drivablity I.E. the
range of adjustment over the RPM range... and didn't talk about wide open
throttle... I kinda figured if it was so great wide open tons of Bracket
Racers would be running it...

Then I talked with the Main Mechanic here in town... who is a geek on
aftermarket computer controls.. and actually aided accel in setting up one
of theirs.... and he was saying that the total time required to set it up
and the testing alone.... would make it Really tough to run... Then I read
the story on the  Firebird Auto Custom Carpet ran on the power tour last
year and that sealed it for now.... to much hassle in my life to run a
complicated set the early going.. I think on the end of the day..
it is in fact the way to go... I just don't know the feasibility for me at
this level.

I hope I sounded enthused for you... I want you to test this out... so I
can run one too... I agree with the basics of the concept and only a fool
would deny the actual controllability.. on the end of the day... I will
sort out the suspension systems... and the Pyrometer... you sort out the
fuel injection.... and the tach... I still haven't found one that I could
play back on cassette tape... tons of playbacks out there... but no
cassette tape ones... what I like about that thing is that I could keep
several tapes to run my passes when I got back....
