WE were dominant? I missed that.I know that but taking the tape away from them isn't what slowed them down as they still ran good on a couple of the following 1.5 mile tracks. When they started being less dominant is when everyone else started sealing up the rub block areas.
In the grand scheme that tape on the nose wasn't doing crap and taking it away didn't make them "drop like a rock".

Huh? Hamlin won 3 races out of the first 21 until he had to forfeit the win because of the taped up front end at Pocono. He didn't win a race the rest of the season. Kyle was cleaned out also. Kyle was given a gift of a win after Pocono when Briscoe took himself and the leader Reddick out at the Bristol dirt race.They had a stretch when no one could touch them at the bigger tracks last summer and you can't deny that. Pocono was part of, but like I said it was short lived when everyone else started doing it.

I think you are as well.....
I don't think he sucks. You missed the sarcasm in my initial post that was to Chase fans that blame everything on Gustafson...or the car.....or NASCAR.....or his luck. The original poster does not feel that way either....which is odd for Chase fans here.Nope, me too. People like to rag on Gustafson, but the guy has won races with four guys that are or will be Hall of Famers and he has a championship, and is what, the second winningest active crew chief? If you think he sucks, ask Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin about him. They'll set your ass straight in about two seconds.
So you think Hendrick will try to bribe the appeals board? You are losing it my friend.Jeffy is just playing the game...and you are operating on the assumption that he is telling the truth. He sounds like an idiot to those who are not part of the Ex Con Nation.
RFK repaired a piece and "improved" the original design. Not unlike a piece of tape on a front quarter of a Camry.
These guys play with fractions of inches....I think they are capable of legal repairs is that is the goal.
All that said, I am sure that the Ex Con took a trip to his bank for a stack of hundreds as he prepares for the appeal. Might gift a couple of Hondas to some key players as well.
I expect a drastically reduced penalty after the appeal....because Hendrick.
Sounds like Knaus is saying the same thing as Kaulig. The issued louvers weren't built properly. Nascar took every louver on the four Hendrick cars but just one for Kaulig. It's a head scratcher.The way I interpret what Kaulig is saying is that these were "issued" parts. These weren't a Harvick style splitter with fake serial numbers
Just having some fun man. Poking the bear.So you think Hendrick will try to bribe the appeals board? You are losing it my friend.
....and they can't talk to NASCAR about what they would need to do to make them work? bull****.Sounds like Knaus is saying the same thing as Kaulig. The issued louvers weren't built properly. Nascar took every louver on the four Hendrick cars but just one for Kaulig. It's a head scratcher.
Among the topics Knaus and Andrews addressed were that the louvers provided to teams through NASCAR’s mandated single-source supplier do not match the design submitted by the manufacturer and NASCAR.The new parts didn’t fit the hood but the new spare set in the same shipment from the same supplier were good to go.
Do I have that right?
Okay, I get it now. Chevy is getting screwed. Knaus and Jeffy need to shut up. Actions detrimental to NASCAR IMO. Where is the Ex Con?Among the topics Knaus and Andrews addressed were that the louvers provided to teams through NASCAR’s mandated single-source supplier do not match the design submitted by the manufacturer and NASCAR.
Kinda like putting tape on body panels under the wrap?No, just don't **** with them. bull****. How about put them on there, and bitch after the fact? Instead, we **** with them and hope we don't get caught. Chevy seems to be a culture.
If quality control is working properly, out of spec parts never leave the facility.Honestly who didn't see this coming? I mean I know I mentioned quality control would be an issue. When you rely on a third party that really doesn't get punished for messing something up that's what you get. We see it all the time in industry.
