I really liked my car from the main through Sunday practice. I tried so many changes and different combo's that I sometimes felt like I was in the twilight zone.
The track was very bumpy for 12th scales and we were running Jack so it took a little time for the grip to come up. I went there with last seasons batteries which I had tested a couple of days before the race and I only had 4 packs that were between 360 - 380 sec/35A, everything else was lower.
Mr. Power Push Carruba was a real gentleman and loaned me some of his practice packs to run with, but in all honesty I simply wasn't focused on gearing or trying to make time. Regardless, I want to offer my sincere thanks to Tony and Vicky for all of their generosity.
I went to this race because I viewed it as an F1 pre-season test date and I am extremely glad that I went. Wayne Gerber Jr., Rob King, Mike Blackstock and "Goop" were all extremely helpful, thanks guys, I really appreciated it and definitely needed it.
Mike Blackstock thought the car looked good by the main but needed some more adjustment to make it easier to drive. I stayed until 1 am asking him questions and testing stuff to get closer to this goal.
In the end I actually wound up running the setup that Adrian M posted for carpet. Man, I just knew I was never going to live that one down.
Again, thanks everyone for your help. I'm just trying to learn and get better.
