Voodoo. Despite winning the last two years, the plane has issues. According to Steve-o it flew like crap, unlike Strega which flies like a dream. Enter a bunch of changes made to the plane this year. All probably needed to be made, but maybe not all at once. With all the changes they had no data. The wing and fuselage were not mated until August 17th.
Changes I know of, wing incidence angle changed, wings profiled again, Dago Red like scoop added, prop cut down 4", the strakes don't go back quite as far as they did, turtle deck near the tail reduced, and the entire plane was repainted.
On top of this the coolant header tank was leaking when the arrived, and it started to leak again on Sunday. I did not know this until it was pointed out to me, but Strega does not have a coolant header tank anymore.
Hopefully they will be back next year, if there is a next year.
Tuesday morning in the pits.
