Not content with just six minutes of competition time at Solo Nats, we struck out early from Nebraska to hit Holley LS Fest and the Road Course Challenge presented by Grassroots Motorsports and B&M.

Held as part of the massive Chevy-based gathering in Holley’s hometown of Bowling Green,…

That is really impressive given how new the car is to the team.  Great work there JG.

"Most satisfying, on Day 2 of competition, we were able to match the Catalyst’s optimal target lap time to the hundredth of a second." 

Nice job-especially for being out there alone.

Self-DQ is a classy move.

The car sounds like a C5.R in the video.

Can you integrate better cooling with more front down force?

And do you think the problems is not enough air getting in, or air not being able to get back out again?

Hopefully and probably yes to all.

I assume you are consulting the aero advisors....  

Seems like a good idea to have them show some of the modeling tools available to the public- if they use them.  While it may only apply to the brave coders out there who race, having them add to the group of people doing aero modeling would be a very good thing.  (there are a number of open source CFD tools that are way, way, way over my head)

Not sure how far JG will go, but I've got a big story on this in the works with the 350Z. Like, "computers currently computing" in the works :)

Yeah Tom has already waded into that pool, and I'm hoping to just get caught in some of the splash.

Can you borrow Tom's 3D scanner for the vette?

First a belated congratulations on the results!

Not sure of all the details of what they did with the C5-R race cars, but a bit of research may give you some ideas as well.

Another option could be a complete change from the bottom feeder to front feeder design with something like the Duraflex; TS, ZR, Stingray Z or the CF Performance C5.5 front bumper covers.
