    No turbo, no nitrous, no twin screw no motor. No nuttin y’all. Gravity,friction reduction, weight placement, proper drill/alignment some aero, inertia, The Cycloid of Constant Time and 42’ is all we got.

    So why is the standard steer targeted @ 4’. Is there a reason why a longer steer target isn’t a better choice to keep the DFW off the rail a tad longer and not scrubbing off speed. Surely with the knowledge on this forum someone can splain it to me as I am learning the way of league racing and open to wise counsel.
