On Saturday, March 29th, we took the liberty to make the 1.5 hour trip up north from Los Angeles to Button Willow racetrack. We were eager to support our long time customer and family of F2, Danny Hernandez, with his beast of an EK at the track. It was a chance to get familiar with the track, get familiar with our product, and get away from the hectic office life.
Upon arrival I was personally greeted by Danny with huge smiles and excitement. He had already did a session or two and was very pleased with the New Type Two prototypes he was testing. First let me give you a little history. He was one of the first people to have our previous Type Two and has had plenty of experience with our products and company(as a paying customer), so his excitement was a fair gauge of how our product marketed for "street" performance was performing on the track.
I decided to throw on a helmet and ride along for a few laps around Buttonwillow (configuration #13), and boy was a nervous but impressed. By lap 3 I was humming and day dreaming at speeds up to 110 mph or more. The suspension handled elevation changes, esses, and changes in directions very well. Also hitting those rub strips on the apexes was no problem for the suspension. Remind you this car hasn't even been dialed in. It was pretty much, slap on the suspension, check the height, and lets roll!! Due to a broke Axle (darn K series power!), our day was cut short, but we look forward to getting back to the track to dial in the suspension and play with some configurations that will let us help our customers set up there new Type Two suspensions and help us develop a..........we will save that for another discussion *smiles*
