I wonder what this was? Anyone hear?

Just wanted to come back on and clear it all up.
The camber was out of compliance after qualifying. We went out on track at 2.4 and came in at 3.7 degrees on the LF. Must have been the 'special grease'.
After they handed the penalty, we checked out the shock to find the reason it changed. We checked it in front of the officials and they saw and understood, but sadly they couldn't reverse the penalty. We found the bottom bolt hole on the shock that you move to adjust the camber was elongated due to 2 years of racing wear and tear . And maybe the crash at LRP also helped... We fixed the camber and went out in the race starting last and went up to 2nd. .
We already knew about the tear down going into Lime Rock. We just told them to do it after Toronto so we would have a motor. They tore us down to the bare block. It seemed they wanted to catch me cheating. They measured every gear in the tranny, checked the cam, all 4 pistons, deck height, etc.
After a couple days of waiting we just received an official apology and report that we are completely legal
I am now back in the points lead and looking for a win at Mid-Ohio.
