I had the pleasure of knowing Phil for a short time. Every time I spoke to him he sure made me laugh. He was a very nice man. May he and Kevin rest in peace. My prayers and sympathies go out to their families. RIP Gentleman; You will be missed.

My heart goes out to the families and friends. This is why my wife made me stop racing. I sometimes miss it so much but when I read stuff like this and look over at my son I know that she is right. To the family and friends that know them hang in there it will get better. To the other racers, please be safe for the rest of the year.

But I have a question.

Is the tunnel tab a bandage for improper tunnel design? Do other cats use this method? Something about an add-on that affects the original design raises questions.

Lot's of cats use tunnel tabs to correct different issues, usually a porpoise or hop at certain speeds. Sometimes they are fixed and sometimes operator adjustable. My buddy has a fixed one on his MTI and another friend has an adjustable one on a Skater.
