Dear Kurt,

A long time ago, I wise man told me to disconnect the rear sway bar when I hit the track. I didn't for the first few years because my car setup wasn't ideal, but finally this year, it felt like the car could use it. I had it disconnected a few weeks ago at ASE, and the car was transformed - Thanks for the tip

so your car has a soft pedal as well, did it ever have a firm one ? Booster delete seems like a bandaid patch

Some say that when Racer robs a house, the garbage is gone and the dog is pregnant.
Cause he's Polish.
That's what I heard

I thought everyone here was Polish!

In my village in the Tatra mountains the inhabitants kill their food with axes then wear its skin inside out, while drinking plum fire-water.

He doesn't have brake lines, he has brake cables.
Hydraulics are for pussies.

I heard the Stig gets pointers from Racer and thus knocks seconds off his laps on the Top Gear test track.
That's what I heard

Instead of making smart ass comments, some of you should learn how to drive.
I have read all of Ross Bentley's books and I am pretty sure I know what I am talking about.

You know what you're talking about? Big difference from reading a book to putting tires to pavement with seat time. Everyone at the track that day sucks? who claimed to be a professional driver for a living? Everyone needs to learn somewhere, no?
