Why do the late model guys not share as much information as the mod guys? I have seen that things are very closed mouth in this class.

Theres another reason 90% of us have been though all the other classes, (hobbies street stocks modifieds) and have already asked the questions and learned the answers. After a point very little changes in racing other than the cost, the principles and the physics remain the same. So we just ask fewer questions.

I guess your right in that aspect...but even LM drivers should want to get ahead and go faster.

Late models are not nearly as hard to hook up. Most of these guys have been around the block more than once. It is very hard to gain a distinct advantage in the chassis area with the caliber of most cars. They probably see no reason to give away any advantage they have discovered. Late models are in a small world comparitively speaking. They will argue about the best chassis and motor builders but they don't trade much to outsiders.

Re: MOTEC site. Primarily for formula 1 engineers and other asphalt racing. You need a good background in mathmatics.
