Hi Wayne,
The page is way too "heavy" for dial up users.
Old Page: ...enginA_main.htm is 1075 bytes
New Page: DriveWerks4.htm is 80183 bytes
That will suffocate your server and bandwidth.

As much as I like the new design there is nothing better than a fast loading page.
Oracle Corp. and Yahoo Inc. studies found that if a page is not fully loaded in 8 seconds then ~90% visitors will go somewhere else, then ~50% in 6 seconds. You really want to have that under 3-4 seconds.

I'm sure most of us will wait a few seconds but have you accessed a slow web site for 5 or more minutes? It's really annoying.

We're all in the gutter,but some of us are looking at the stars.
