Despite the good burnouts, we discovered two things during attempts to make a full naturally aspirated run. The high temperature at Fontana (in the low 100s) and lack of true, event-quality prep on the racing surface promoted nothing but spinning tires and smoke when Greg attempted to launch the Clevor-powered GT at 3,200 rpm. Subsequent efforts with Greg leaving at an idle and slipping the clutch into First gear through 2,200 rpm proved better. However, despite finally achieving forward progress, the GT was not transferring weight (notice there is no front-end extension) and definitely required a shocks/struts adjustments before making any runs with nitrous.
