Thinking of going faster Davis? Maybe a new class? That GT-3 looks good? Can you just upgrade your power output and keep the car?

Have you tried the library computer for the book your looking for?

Try www.goss.com (http://www.goss.com) for the book, go to Rally America, look in there, I found it. Maybe you can order the book.

Doo's book is out of print and not necessarily that good--although it reads well.

It's also old. Talks too much about other disciplines of motorsports.

There is a chapter in Valkenburg's Race Engineering (or something like that)--the one with Dale Earnhard'ts car on the cover--that is actually better. His big point was differentials.

I think we are going to have to wait a bit for someone to come out with a good thorogh book on FWD racing.

Joeg,

Is there a place for Davis to go to for a downloadable version that you know of?
