Hello there, listeners! SurferClock here along with TAP-G to bring you the latest episode of "What's the Attraction?"
Today's adventure brings us over to Epcot, where it seems something is awry...at least, that's what my co-host would have you believe, anyhow. In any case, we're going to take a look at Test Track. If you haven't seen it in a while, you may notice that it's sporting a new coat of paint...
Test Track operated for a little over 13 years "as presented by GM." The generalization was downsized to more specifically reflect Chevrolet's line of vehicles, not so much GM as a whole. The overall presentation received a facelift bringing it into the future...rather than going out onto the test track and putting a GM vehicle through the paces (as it was before), you're building a SimCar and specifying its parameters to best match performance statistics such as Capability, Efficiency, Responsiveness, and Power...the Chevrolet branding is more along the lines of the post-ride exhibits as specific models are represented alongside you as you take your pictures.
For some reason, my co-host has taken this switch to mean that the original has somehow gone missing! Just wait 'til he realizes that it's still the same ride...I hope he realizes it, anyway.
More importantly, is this new coat of paint really worth the time it spent out of commission, or do we miss Bill McKim just as much as I'm sure a few of you do as well? Listen in and find out!

Also, if you can't tell by now, we've done away with the
whole Slingfile thing. Podcasts will begin to disappear from there, so
please let us know if you'd still like to get MP3s of the podcasts, and we'll see what we can do about hosting.
