Yes, Walt: this is exactly what I've been saying. Which in and of itself could potentially make an SC engine as potent as if some of the discussed modifications in this thread were employed. However, the effectiveness of a 7.31 r/p also depends on where that r/p is used. On a short, twisty track, it would be very effective. On a track with long straights, not as much...
