    "I've looked at tone from both sides now
    and still somehow , I really don't know tone at all"

    The tone is in the phone
    The sound is underground
    It's noisy up in Boise

    What? 30 guys driving around in a circle for 4 hours isn't entertainment?

    yes. in fact i think this race is where it died... first nationally broadcast flag to flag coverage and it ends with a fist fight.... and of course the cars get pretty stupid at this time too... the days of Superbirds, Torinos, Chargers.... long gone never to return,

    Tone is in the mind. But I can't trust something that named itself.

    Yeah, I don't see how they can seriously continue on with the "Stock" in their name; maybe it's tongue-in-cheek. It used to be you could actually go to the dealership and buy what they were running, but how long has it been since that was the case? They have a standard car that's pretty much the same for everyone, put your plastic shell on it that differs only in paint job and the "stock" car logo that is applied, and off you go. They're so closely matched in performance, in all parameters, that it's all about the qualifier, because that determines what position you'll be in on race day and won't likely ever depart from. And they complain their fan base is declining... Gee, I wonder why.
    I think that's why rally has become more and more popular. You don't have a bunch of identically-matched cars going in circles; each car, in addition to actually being purchasable by the general public, is different from the other, so the different strengths and weaknesses of each and how the driver adapts have a real influence on the outcome. There's actually some entertainment value there.

    i've basically abandoned my love for racing... the whole enterprise is pretty unseemly in this day and age, but dang... in the 6th grade i wanted nothing more than to someday win Daytona, Indy, and the 24 hr Le Mans Grand Prix (in a GT40 of course)...

    Paraphrasing an old song, Tone is in the...Air! So however minutely...our "perfect tone", is affected by temperature and humidity. Playing out doors on a cold dry day will sound different than playing on a warm humid night...due to differences in air density.
