'Tis true winners won't talk to you UNTIL you earn their respect. The information they have (less specific tricks) has been published in enough books to choke a horse.

Spend hours in libraries, buy and read EVERYONE's book. Then start spending money trying the ideas. Some will suck; some will make you faster. Along the way, you will make costly errors, but you will learn.

After this process you just might start nipping thier front quarter in a race. When they see you beside them - you will become their friend real fast. Once you pass them and take their plastic flag on a wooden stick - They will start hanging around your pits.

To be damn sure, if I have spent a ton of time and money to be #1, I'm sure as hell not going to give you the tricks for free. I may give you hints and I will build a car/engine for you. It's up to you to take it apart and understand what was done.

There are racers and also-rans. When you want to commit the time, energy and money to the cause you will earn respect. The rest are just "groupies" living a vicarious experience.
