OP. You really should spend a week and read this entire thread. From beginning to end, without skipping. There is so much information in it, it will make your head spin.

I just spent two days reading about Barney's evolution. The knowledge in that thread is simply priceless. I learned a ton!

I followed many articles/posts on various auto-X related sites regarding Ron Sutton's suspension, shock, & brake set-ups. I was drawn to the info & was trying to learn. One thing I kept seeing was the phrase 'secret sauce' when describing certain aspects of his combo's. People defended this as a trade-secret sort of thing but I always thought it was weird to not share info. Like many stories, there can be multiple sides to them. While Mr. Sutton is highly touted in some circles, he's just as well known as being a not-so-great guy so Google & read up on him.

Lance's car (Barney) is well built. He definitely does his homework & due diligence when making changes/upgrades.
