Taking advantage of the advances in technology over the last 40 years is just good practice. This is going to be a fun ride.
My generation went from "never use stock setups" to "use stock setups"... here's my prediction - I blog this, someone out there does a TV show coughcoughaaronkaufmancoughcough then someone else sells a 'new kit' that 'takes advantage of manufacturer engineering' ... again. Thankfully, so far, I haven't had someone who copied come back and try to 'splain' it back to me...
It's fine, though, I think making hotrodding more accessible is always the right answer - and some people don't have the skill or time to piece it together themselves. The whole point of my blogging my builds is a detailed record of what I did and how - whether it's by cash or by knowledge, if someone else gains from it.... that's cool by me. I have a day job that pays far better then what I'd get paid breathing bondo in someone else's shop.
