I'm looking forward to running the HX against the Wonder-EX again. I hope you can be at GGP.

imho the track competition should be a good test of fuel economy. True, it lacks the random interference you'd get on public roads - but those would be inconsistent from car to car. You can make a pretty good case for the consistent "interference" of track turns and grades, and whatever else. And the track will still have some random interferences - like wanting to pass or slow down, but being limited by another car on the 2.45 mile loop.
