    That is a nice picture and background Gian. I like the old race car and that looks as if it could be Nomad's Ferry in the distance. Thanks for posting it.

    Gian,

    Those are some great pictures. I wonder about the Gold pipes though. A guy that I know built a Cobra for show and had everything on it did in 24 carat Gold and he started to drive it to a show and when the pipes got hot it really looked bad. But the Gold work on that car was lousy to start with. He washed the wheels with just a light stream of water and the Gold ran down the drain. I think he paid about $25K to have all of that Gold work done.

    Note the RF wheel lifting in what seems (visually from what I can see) to be relatively 'mild' cornering. I'm not sure if that speaks to handling and/or suspension set-up issues, but maybe Morris can make an observation or two here....

    Al,

    Either that or the turn has some banking on the outside that makes the right front wheel a little higher than the left front.

    I'm betting that the driver is hard on the gas pedal, and torque is lifting the left front...........
