And the first couple days in the cart -- here few weeks ago just. Detonate how to handle on a carbon brakes was it was a big deal in it was something that took took quite a while to really get beard and I think for the teams. Figure out where they're operating range really is then what's the trade off between power vs consistency in the braking zone I thought -- -- so. You know we're one of downsides to it is that we don't really have very many options like we did previously with different hats and you know like I stopped by. -- that just puts kind of -- higher emphasis on. You know making it work so I think that's that's -- some that were focusing on and you know the -- that gets under control it for sure the stopping power the cars -- so that's an incident or incidents Alvarez. You know when it comes down to really analyzing how to get that little bit of extra lap time out of the -- I think there could be some -- significant things -- mean. You definitely realize. In those corners that you're just down in the reds get through the center of the corner. -- you've got to be aggressive going to power because not all there all -- once. You know so. He got it. Think a little bit served further around the corner says the figure we really need to be doing -- throttle pedal but sound. Get a cars that are. I guess having said that they're very. Drivable you know so it's not like it really all -- in you know once guys yeah I know certainly from our experience Chevy guys -- a good job. -- it's getting kind of controlled zone might be fun to see how it. Progresses then and you know how old maybe each driver can. He had two in their cars you know little bit differently it's going to be -- -- -- going in the future for me personally just at panther racing and I feel. You very much at home you know I feel very much a part of the team and he didn't. Even this year haven't really been any less busy than last year sort of threw my off season going into the beginning of the year by field. But that's busy -- -- resist. A sense of familiarity with everything so I know that for me -- already made a big difference and yeah I mean. From a driving standpoint he wants to roll out you know -- he's really gets going. Yeah I still feel like I've got some things to prove especially when it comes the road courses. And so that's I know for me certainly is they get assists and then it is progress the team as well so. You know I think we we really still need to establish ourselves as a group yeah somebody didn't compete. Yeah at a high level anywhere we go around event being assertive sporadic. You know races here and there.
