It doesn't, but I'm guess the bend in the exhaust pipe starts right after the o2 reading for a reason, should the "atmoshpere" climb up in to a positive pressured pipe?

How is that o2 sensor different from the tailpipe sensor used at 95% of dynos?

I had a Radical (S2k engine) pass me on the outside of #7 at TWS...I thought it was over for both of us, not a smart move. In the end, I should have probably pointed him by and slowed down. Actually, it was NASA's fault for trying 15-minute sessions where we only get 4-5 laps to lay down a clean, fast lap.

Part of how a Bosch wideband sensor works is that it pumps clean air into the exhaust. if the pressure in the exhaust is too high, IE pre turbine at high rpm, you won't get an accurate reading.

See Zirconia Wideband Sensor section:

WTF. Really? That is dumb as hell. He was probably waiting patiently behind your for a point by and you just suck at looking at your mirrors. All the corvette guys in the pits are just trying to give helpful reminders of that when you stage in front of them, but you just never seem to listen do you?

I was walking around down town Duval today running an errand and I saw this guy across the street. I immediately ran over and chased him, yelling at him like a crazy person. He was so stoked that someone wanted to take a picture of his shirt.

Pretty cool guy. Definitely has the Key West crackhead vibe, though.

I honestly don't remember the name, but it was just some old-timey country restaurant that served mostly meat'n'threes and still had plates that were blue for the purpose of the blue plate specials.
