FEEDBACK ARTICLE: MIKE KLOEBER'S NITRO UNIVERSITY - COURSE 4, FUEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Obviously Mike Kloeber is very smart and current with these fuel cars.
Which, in regards to these on-line seminars, is a problem.
Take this current fuel system article: How many readers who are not
versed in any facet of running fuelers, past or present, can seriously
take away any PRACTICAL knowledge from what he wrote. It comes across
as very complicated when his job in these articles is to SIMPLIFY, so
average readers can get a handle on how these fuel systems are actually
run, NOT how complicated they are - anyone around drag racing fuelers
Secondly, Mike Kloeber's mixing of old tales with these tech might seem
entertaining, but it clouds what should be a clear lay-out of tech
information, clearly. Those entertaining old tales can either be
tacked on later, or in another article. This has been an issue with
every one of his articles. While I enjoy them, I know most of what
he's talking about, but he is not writing this out for those who know,
but those who DON"T know and want to.
In none of his articles, so far, has he given actual in-depth know-how
that anyone without prior knowledge in the field could actually apply.
Isn't this the whole purpose of these? Or just entertaining filler?
Lastly, I think this fuel article in particular displays how
unnecessarily complicated the fuelers have become, and while they are
the most exciting classes in drag racing, these are also at times the
most disappointing for all of their tech issues to get the cars down
the tracks. What both fuel classes need is to be simplified - and yes,
that curse said aloud, slow them down so they have more affordable full
fields at every race that have CLOSE SIDE BY SIDE RACING.
I do appreciate Mike Kloeber's efforts, and I'd like him to continue,
just consider simplify what he's writing in ways that can more easily
be understand and perhaps even applied. - Ken Tesoriere
