    I knew that after the crash they were going to struggle. Barring that moment, Brittany would have had a bigger fight for the Championship with Steve....

    6 per run, they need a lot more.

    Nah, that's about right...24 races x 8 runs per race = 192 runs x 3 new discs per run = 576 discs, 192 runs x 4 new discs per run = 768 discs.

    $120 per discs x 750 = $90,000.

    How does the floaters calculate into the equation?

    5 floaters per run x 192 = 960 floaters x $30 per floater = $28,800....and you have to have more than that in stock so you can change the cutter count on the floaters depending on conditions. You also can order X amount of floaters during different points of the season to help meet the tuning window you are in.

    How about
    24 races x 5 runs per race = 120 runs x 3 new discs per run = 360 discs, 120 runs x 4 new discs per run = 480 discs.:cool:

    Yeah Jonathan, that would be fine if you never had any intentions of getting past 1st round or not testing.

    That was the wishful thinking of a fan of the rival. ;)

    Well that's more than wishful thinking. That's a super talented team and they'll be tough to beat again in 2018.

    A lot of times when you see a team go into a slump it is related to running out of discs and packs.:(
