FJ - I totally agree with you concerning the Honda (especially cars where the engine sits sideways) when it comes to space to work on it and crash worthiness. I do maintain my vehicles like I maintain my Benz and I look at your statements as compliments on my diyer ability - thanks
After further consideration - I have to agree that the situation that was shown on the show was a RennTech problem. Over the past few weeks I was able to watch some racing on Speedvision called European Auto series or something like that and the first three finishes were Mercedes Benz. Unfortunately, I doubt if MBUSA folks even care.
