    What is all the brew ha with the Gibbs team's?

    Reads like they got pretty creative with the spacers.

    The two crew chiefs that are banned, the 50k fines.

    Seems they used magnets to alter the dyno readings by 8hp.

    Nascar rulings let Toyota get into the game with the camry. Sounds like the Ford engine may have problems making the same hp. Expect the Toyota v8 is a new design. The Ford is an older design. Thought there was something about the valve train in the Toyota uses straiter shorter pushrods. Lending itself to a stronger valve train. Would be expensive to replace the Ford engine line completely. So, the parity rulings began.

    The grumbling and fines are due to the altered dyno readings.

    Thats how I interprited what I read at any rate.

    Anyone hear anything else?

    After the race but before the dyno test, at the track, the yotas wanted to make sure that no one knew they had more HP than anyone else so they placed magnets under the gas pedals so nascar would not be able to push the gas pedal all the way down. Nice try.

    OK, I did hear about the magnet trick. Cleaver rascals.

    I saw an interview with Tony Stewart and he said it was a pretty dumb thing for them to try and do because Brian Vickers car was being tested also and that they would have found out the true numbers anyways because the Red Bull team has Gibbs motors in their cars.
