AX to Win

I was reading another forum and came across this site and I thought it would be of interest to some of us.

i was linked to that site by a buddy of mine who races up in Milwaukee about a year and a half ago....and it's by far the site i visit most when i'm bored and feel the need to read something. excellent info in there on car set up. i especially found the strut section to be a real eye opener!

I hadn't had much time to read all of that stuff, I only read 2 topics and I already like it alot. Here is my favorite quote so far:

"The big problem is that most red blooded males think that they spring from the womb the reincarnation of Ayrton Senna (not to mention Casanova and Sgt. York) but that simply isn't true; driving in competition is a learned skill and not one that comes naturally to anybody. It must be practiced, practiced, practiced until it is mastered, and until it is mastered, there is very little that car tuning can do for you. There are no shortages of expensive, slow cars out there. No matter how much money and time you spend tweaking the car (and some have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars) money cannot overcome skill and physics."

Thanks Mikelsr, for that link.
