The problem is the bra tend to stretch if used regularly and when it's a couple years old, will allow some flex and air to get trapped under the bra.

It could work, if you manage to keep the underside of the bra clean, and then add painter's tape along the edges. But if you're going to go all noob tape on the car, might as well forgo the bra.

p.s.: Be on the look out, if you guys are jonesing for more track action, for the May 3rd Auto Club Speedway announcement to go out this week. I've got a couple more administrative stuff to take care of on the back end.
Which track configuration?

Also FYI, I was mentioning Spring Mountain in July Sunday at Chuckwalla to others and they were all VERY afraid of the weather.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
