I left the first sentence, so I don't look crazy, talking about a subject that doesn't exist.

That's true. Cosmetics is really the only part of medicine where the American concept of free-market capitalism is in effect. Not saying that's good or bad or right or wrong. It just is. That and maybe the few concierge-type practices that exist.

Looks like I will be the suspension guy. Not too many others interested. Which is nice, I should get to have a better idea of what is going on with every system. Chassis and suspension most importantly.

I may even learn how to weld (took a class already but I hate all the arcing. Gas welding was much more enjoyable).

But anyway, it sounds like a lot of fun (and a lot of work). They want me to basically start now so that when next year rolls around I can have a head start. They want to change from their camber car design from years past since the tire development and data is just not their.

So, I either get to design a new (but unfortunately conventional) suspension and integrate it into the chassis, or we get to work on the old one and try to better understand it and refine it.

The main reason they want the bigger conventional tires is they are going from one to two 50 hp motors so they just don't have the traction. But they will have torque vectoring and regen brakes.

All my free time will likely go towards it but that is fine since it is exactly the sort of stuff I like to do.

There aren't many really local hardware stores. Most of the real ones went out of business when the big box stores came to town.

Rick, we actually do have mountains and national forests. The panhandle is the very desolate area. My part of town is actually hilly.

The Arbucle mountains are a very old mountain range and nothing like the Rocky mountains but they are mountains. And Oklahoma also has the world's highest hill!
