    Doubtful. The records set during the "Optimal Race Path" calculation years (2003 to present) were records in their own right, established under the rules that existed at the time through no fault of the race teams. They should stand as is.

    One thing to remember is that any speeds after the change will still not be an apples to apples comparison to the "old days". Pylons have been moved since the last time they used pylon to pylon distance to calculate speeds.

    I wish! It's a work thing. Getting wined and dined by Schluter. Touring the plant, etc etc. No free time. They are putting us up at the grand sierra though, so that is nice....

    Well, I just go to see the Big Iron go FAST! Who cares about records. Fastest motor sport in the world! Respect to the other race classes, especially RUBY in the bipes. They all get to have fun and go fast and compete. All about having fun safely.

    Thanks for the Biplane-love! We don't seem to get much of it, here on AAFO or anywhere else, for that matter.

    Yes, Ditra Antifracture membrane and the Kerdi Waterproofing are Orange. Orange is their color. They also are famous for the little aluminium trims on the exposed edges.

    Their distribution center for the west coast is in Reno. Super cool building actually.
