I'd like to add another wikrnle to this thread. The advent of electronic ignition particularly the magnetic pickup which replaced the old points greatly increased consistency. Until the magnetic pickup the distributor was constant maintenance. For high rpm engines in particular. Point tension needed to be checked to increase the rpm capability of the point distributor and reduce point bounce and float. Dual points with the timing of the individual point openings staggered 6-degrees helped increase coil saturation and spark output by increasing the dwell time seen by the primary side of the coil. But the high point tension quickly wore the point rubbing block(s). As the rubbing block(s) wore the dwell increased which retarded the ignition timing. To be consistent you were required to check and adjust your ignition timing every couple of runs. And points needed to be changed and adjusted usually after every weekend of racing.Same goes for the high maintenance in the valve train. Rocker arms, valve springs and pushrods often needed replacement at the track. So in that vain, it was tougher years ago to be consistent. The advent of the modern electronic ignitions and vastly improved engine components, clutches and torque converters have made many of those headaches far less frequent.For me driving a stick, the two-step rev limiter has certainly made it easier to concentrate on the Christmas tree. There was a time when you had to focus one eye on the tach and the other on the lights coming down. So, was it tougher back then or today? The debate will certainly continue!
