I've had a couple of experiences with seeing people out think themselves by copying the guy in the next pit. One example was when I was racing oval track cars. Many of the guys would eliminate their charging systems because the alternator "robber power". Many of these same guys would often forget to charge their batteries and have a hard time starting the cars, and then try to run the electronic ignition on too low a voltage(makes a very BAD miss). Any savings they got whit their "trick" was more than offset by the problems they made. Have you guys seen some similar things,on or off the track?
