Title: Black Smoke From Toyotas
Post by: Cheryl on April 02, 2009, 12:03:17 PM
On last night's Dialed-In, Claire B. Lang talked about what the Toys have been doing that causes the black smoke (such as we saw from Kyle Busch's car on Sunday).  She said sources in the garage said that the Toys have their cars set to actually shut off the engine going into the turns (which saves brakes).  Supposedly it's not actual traction control, but NA$CAR doesn't want anything even close to that happening, so there will be a technical bulletin soon to stop it.  Heard Tony Eury, Jr. talk on Claire's show Sunday night that everyone knew what they were doing and that he expected the technical bulletin to come out soon.  There was some word Claire said they used for it, but I can't remember it right now.

Thats an interesting thing to be doing.  Wonder if the car gets to a certain RPM it turns off?

Yeah, that's what it sounds like from what I heard...
