    So he was saying that he has a small piston, right?

    Just like chuck norris, I am scared of nothing. But 8 makes me feel equally the same way as 9 with my history on that turn.

    8 doesn't scare me at all. I know how fast I can go thru there and I catch up to lots of peeps in 8. I actually spun out in the Evo at speed in 8 once and destroyed a set of pretty new NT-01s. All four were badly flat spotted beyond use, and one of them blew out. Nothing else bad happened.

    But 9 still scares me. I'm working on it. It's a long term effort.

    I think the design of the poll is defective. There should only be 2 options, "Momentum Track" or "Horsepower Track." The third option, "I'm afraid of Turn 9" is just a kind of goofy throw away -- it doesn't add anything or answer the topic question. You don't know how these people would have voted if they only had two options (if they voted at all).

    Since I've never actually driven the track, and I am scared of turn 9, I voted that way, but I think it's a momentum track.

    "Horsepower track" is making a comeback! I think the effects of Oli's silly arm-twisting are wearing off.

    Too bad most of the people that voted Turn 9 still scares me would have voted for horsepower.

    I had never been to WSIR before this last weekend. I really like it now. The fact that I can see almost the entire track from pit makes it excellent. I can tune aero with binoculars

    Debating which one something is when its really both of them?

    It turns out that a lot of the voters had never driven the track before. They were just listening to Oli's BS. Now that a lot more of you have spent the weekend on "the fastest road in the West", the truth that it is a HORSEPOWER Track has come out.
