Wow ! picking air !

From : Steve Jones
Gavin Manion’s point is right on the money . . . Imagine having to pick good air?! What a concept!

As a reminder this is what Gavin Manion said ……
A few years ago Stu Darmon ran an experimental event intended as a small field trial. The rule was a legal P30 plus a 10g wheel balance weight. It certainly took the edge off the model performance and might have increased their DT rate. It proved highly unpopular with competitors, a typical comment being ” these are no good, you need lift to max”. Maybe that was just the point…
