Sunday morning, Daytona 24, 2000The initial 2KQ was  dogged by many niggling issues.  Some small, some very large.  From flexing monocoques, splitters, and rear substructures, to wing mount failures, It was clear that the 2KQ was pushed out the door too soon.  But in some respects the 2KQ's packaging pointed to the way of the future and it definitely was the next jump in the evolution of the sports prototype.
