Yeah the car was super dialed when I tried it out and I was finally turning some competitive laps...I just needed the right car to do it with

We haven't been racing at Leeward in quite some time. After Leeward died there wasn't much road racing going on except for a couple of small races here and there. Then my race out in Waianae picked up for about a year then back to not much for many years. I started running races in front of Sandy Fleming's for awhile then the track at Race World Hawaii got built and that is where electric on-road is today. Turn out is pretty small though but the track owner is trying to work on ways to get people to come out again. Keeping my fingers crossed that it'll work

looks like a nice track. Permanent on road track in hawaii, nice. Does Dave still run Sandy Flemings? He use to always have the best prices.

Dave still runs Sandy Flemmings, but will retire soon. The Kunia track looks better then it is. Its getting better. The format, lack of pan cars,cost, and management have turned people off. They are trying to make things better.

I was having a hard time tryig to fit a 51 tooth pinion. so maybe like a 52-53 tops ad that will be pushing it! that will put you at 3.7 with a 53 if you can get it to fit...

if your trying to run gear ratios around 3.8 I'd really recommend using a 88 or 86T spur.

We had our ROAR region 11 race this weekend.

There was a 21.5 class in prep for next year.

TOP took TQ and win in that class. (ME)

There were over 30 entries in 17.5 Mark Day (owner of TZ) took 5th (I think)..

His car looked good and it was some super tight racing!!! not bad for only a hand full of TOPS there!!! and by a hand full I mean 4 LOL.
