I loved the video where Randy and four penny discussed the drag coefficient created by the uneven, and often large, gaps in panel fitment. I think it was taken by the lake where FPD parks his house, although I could be mistaken.

I imagine FPD did the warm up laps first to make sure the car was setup properly before Randy made his attempt.

LOL, I hadn't thought of him for a couple decades or so. I was agreeing that you covered the expected response here. Nothing wrong with a preemptive strike.

Looks like a fun car to toss around the track.
