If there was any controversy at Hotchkis Track Day, it was over Jeff Smith's Chevelle and its test under braking. The Stalker radar caught it going from 60 to zero in 101 feet! Many of us balked, but John Hotchkis swears it was possible. Smith kept his mouth shut. His second run, which looked great, was 114.89 feet. You decide. Needless to say, Smith and Car Craft won that category (as well as the drag race) and the 14-inch Baer Track system works flawlessly after years of pounding. Kudos to the DOT-legal, 17-inch Kumho V700 Victo Racer tires, too, as this ol' Chevelle beat us and our ABS by five feet.
