Grumm,  I am surprised-  :-o --you of all people should have enough experience with car owners to know they are not necessarily logical nor practical :-)

That is so true. When you're overlooking the forest it's so dam* difficult to see those trees.  :-D :-D :-D

 :-P 
well once again we are getting reminded that why this LSR stuff is so challenging ---so may systems, affected by so many things---Ms Liberty did her part with not too many leaks or things---

we didn't do our part by being prepared with driver fitment---we so concentrated on brake and throttle positions and him being able to work every thing -- and we maybe should have worked on "Total Driver fitment" for Andy..

I guess I didn't read between the lines very well.

Did You even go over there?

Is the refinement work being done at home or at the lakes?
