If you're not sure, just roll over every jump, except the easy double, in the middle of the straight away, that's the easiest jump there.

I know what you mean about the walking like 10 mile trek from the drivers stand to flipping you car over :D I was always getting caught at the end of the straight away, until someone said, "do you see the ouch painted on the wall, when your car is around that spot, slow down to turn" I did and it works, Yay!!!

How long did you stay at the track till with Mark and them??

I'll have mine... just got some fluid at the LHS. It has a stock motor in it, but I can dial my PS down low enough that it's not screaming. I got it that way cheap and can't see spending the coin on a 55t that I'd use 3 times a year. ;)
I should be there around 9am tomorrow. I'll wear a red rose.... :roll:

The track's regular hours are 9am-11pm on Saturdays. I'm guessing 9am... but I'll probably be there earlier. Mapquest says 3 hours, but I'm hoping for less than that! :D

Photo request form you guys there... I love the car shots, and want more, but lets get to see the cars AND the owners, and let us know who everyone is. It's a good time for some of us to get to put faces with names.


Keep up the good work!

Had a great time meeting all of you! Race went really well and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did. We'll definitely be doing that again.

Hey Scr8p, I have your trophy from the race. PM me your address so i can mail it to you. Hope you're feeling better brutha.

Clinehobbies- Bill thanks so much for supporting the race and traveling so far just for the race. It was awesome meeting you and your buddy.

FINALLY... I can't thank Mr. Lexan enough! Dude, to take your vacation, drive to IL, then to PA, then to CT and back just to take pictures is beyond belief and everything looks so awesome. You definitely saved us from HUGE mess with the 2wd results too! It was really awesome meeting you and I will never be able to thank you enough.
