it likely has more to do with suspension and the new nose than engine, plus the new smooth surface. From what i've been reading they are great in the engine category, as they ironed out the FR9 and computer issues at the end of 2010...that said, id be willing to bet all the teams are dealing with never before seen issues for daytona, due to all 3 of these situations
Have not seen anything on this Ray, but I would tend to agree with Dave here. I know that the nose is going to be an issue and the Roush folks have been battling aero problems. I think that Doug Yates has gotten the engine itself smoothed out and with the off-season, availability to staff all cars with the new engines and parts is a non-issue. The corners however are vital to Daytona as the restrictor plates make straightaway speeds a non-factor. Roush has had success at Daytona, but so much of it has to do with timing and sheer luck that its not funny. Great Post!
