Re: VVT projects (aatap)

Well, they were just testing them to see how they performed under odd circumstances. You should see some of the things we used to do to the shocks on our Class 7s desert race truck. Strange things caused them to fail but we were able to learn and design a better suspension setup. Now, we didn't operate them without all the factors needed for them to work right, so we got the shocks to fail under "normal" operating motions. This doesn't seem like a very fair test of the Smart Valves mainly because the required operating conditions weren't met. Maybe they were just trying to be safe in case the motor exploded or something. Who knows? Thats why everyone switches away from The Speed Channel whenever NASCAR comes on.
