    yeah - nothing against their product as it's obviously well made.. but it costs 3x as much to buy, and has more parts (so more cost) to install..

    there's more than 1 person here in Australia running them at the moment. Apparently the rear pipe was tight but didn't need 'massaging'

    my inlet cam has the gear EIN/IN, pulled it off the stock motor that way.

    OTOH, just look at the F20C/F22... they hold even more power per liter unopened and they're closer to fully floating and have much less material between bores, where the N54 has a lot more...

    as far as it's been explained to me, there's limited between season development too, and it gets tighter as the years go by or some crap?

    what i mainly want is for it to be enjoyable to watch.

    even the crazy F1 fans on /r/formula1 were all saying they fell asleep halfway through.

    Doesn't help that most of the honda teams DNF'd...

    nah i'm not talking about artificial levelling, i'm talking... just being able to make changes independently between seasons. The rules now basically keep all the teams static season to season, only...

    because of one of the main reasons for half the changes they made to this gen cars? it's MORE EXCITING. more battles for each place, each person pushing that little bit harder in hopes they'll move...

    I'd assume it's also in part their 'standardising formula' these magazines use

    since their traction isn't perfect, climate etc... they have a correction factor they apply for all their metrics....

    Um... VP sells C85, C16+E85 (as far as i'm aware it's C16 at least). (since cheap E85 is mixed with 87 or 89 fuel usually, there's some left on the table)
