Brilliant stuff indeed Ron ......

as far as I know Audio does not use much Data ....but it all depends on your Data Plan .... I have a 30GB Plan so I have no problems running out ....

Here is another link http://www.target550.com/news.html for the Treit and Davenport Liner ....

It is currently in the line and will be running in about an hour ....

And here's a story about the Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3. Beautiful car, I wish they'd come to our Speedweek.

I particularly like the use of a full carbon fibre monocoque tub for the driver. This gives huge improvements in driver safety as the tub was originally the full chassis of an openwheeler race car and is now surrounded by a steel chassis and a proper roll cage. Very clever.

While we were waiting for a call to be made on the 2013 Shootout, all the entrants were parked up in the hangers at the airport,,

Spent a hour or so talking with the crew and checking out the Buckeye Bullet, great team, and it is certinally an Interesting car :D

The trailer thay use to cart it around on the salt is a work of art, has a ram system, thay sit the belly of the trailer on the salt and simpley roll the Buckeye on and off 8)
