But when we ran at Riverside the temperature was 75 degrees and we still lost the gasket and engine
The turbo pressure during warm-up, with the different expansion rates for the head and block is causing the issue
I'm not sure but the only thing I know is that temperature would definitely lead to the stresses we are seeing in the gaskets. All the engines failed in different ways but ultimately they were all caused by a gasket failure
Alright, I'll talk to Robby about it too
What do you think about Jessie's take on the temperature factor? It is 40 degrees now.
I hate to say this but that's just his gut feeling, the data don't support it. We have a 29% rate of blown engines but that's what happens when we are racing fast
Look, we're good to go and everyone wants this race bad. Nobody ever won a race sitting in the pits
