NO RATINGS
My comment about cheating in sports is the old saying, "hate the sport, not the player".  All organized and professional sports have rules, rules sometimes get broken, some detected, others not, punishments levied according to the rules and the organization.

 Indy racing is not for the fain-of-heart. The costs are incredible and the stakes are high. There has never been an all encompasing document that cannot be interpreted more than one way. As long as there are creative engineers and lawyers, the rules will be interpreted and bent as much as possible in order to gain a slight advantage. The people racing in the Indy League are some of the most competitive people you'll ever meet and without a "standard" engine and chassis, every team would spend whatever is necessary to win. The use of 200 or more channels of telemetry to monitor all aspects of car, engine and driver performance provides an opportunity for the engineers to make minor tweaks between races that may (or not) improve one aspect of a cars performance in the next race (assuming the air temperature, tire compound, humidity, wind, barometric pressure, time of the day and phase of the moon are within the predicted range). The fact that outsiders are able to be in the pit area and observe the team in order to report in this forum is remarkable. Keep up the good work.

The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
