wouldn't that suck!!!!
I've heard about that type of traction control and such, no doubt it's in use, and it wouldn't be that difficult to do with the technology available.
I still think the engines are about the same, be too hard to judge when and where certain engines would be used, and if you lose one early, then the entire season could be shook up because you had to use engine tuned for tracks a,b,c, instead of the one tuned for tracks d,e, and f.
just seems like it wouldn't be worth chancing.
