been driven at Thunderhill?
Someone a few days ago posted a few comments about the 79 and its drawbacks
I can tell you straight out, that once I pulled mine from the gutter,...It was ready to race. Turned a 2:10 at thunderhill (with the hill) and got 14th place out of 32 cars. ( the red part euro 5 liter would spin a 2:03) in fact, this time is a few seconds faster than even Dons car or the Devek machine. (so far, but I think both of these cars will be in the 2:08 range soon if I know marc and Don. Both need diets!!!)
