The whole turbo thing came at a bad time for Lambert. After years of product development, he fine tuned a package that was as reliable and competitive as the dominant and
upcoming teams and chassis' in the sport. Right when he is postured to reap the rewards of his efforts, BOOM! In come the turbos. The moment that Cory unilaterally began defining this new technology and its introduction into the sport, It was evident that the repercussions would disrupt what plans anyone had for racing a ute in the premier leagues. The only top team not to make the leap to turbos was Cognito. He has a product to sell, and winning on Saturday sells on Monday. With 4 consecutive wins, and probable sweep for a class championship at hand, his company should be sending off a bottle fine cognac to Cory come December. As I have said before, a tuned and polished n/a car can match the turbos early on, but as the teams learn how to keep the turbos together, it is a fundamental fact that under the existing rules, the n/a cars will not be able match the turbo's times and average speeds. I noticed he was over 4 minutes off of the pace of the turbos in Laughlin. V2R should see that gap widen even more. One shake of my magic 8 ball has him racing a turbo in 2017, where he will be a year behind on the learning curve.

V2R can go 1 of 2 ways....1. we get our asses handed to us by the turbo cars as we cant match the torque and horsepower those cars make....or 2. The N/A car has the advantage of not having all the turbo issues in the HOT nevada desert..... In a Sprint Race 100% the Turbo has the Clear Advantage....in the Long Haul on a Hot Day....ehhh time will tell.
Also....you cant possibly think any lessons the Turbo teams have had has gone Unnoticed
I stand corrected!
