With that dye did you just let them sit in it or boil it?

Reedy Update:

Teemu and PW were both in the 12 sec lap times yesterday afternoon and continued to be on pace today. As usual Teemu is among the fastest and PW is right in there too.

I had the water hot but not boiling. I just kept stiring the parts and they turned out pretty nice. The longer you leave them in the better they turnout.

Hey all,

Question: With the roll bars; I'm finding that Iím getting more up travel on one side than the other before the roll bar engages and lifts both wheels. When this happens is it ok to try to bend 'em back to being flat or is it better to call them done and get a new pair?

99% of the time when this happens you have the droop diffrent on each side. Check that before trying anything.

Yeah i've had that with the bars when droop is fine.

It's usually either the bar isn't straight, or the link balls aren't the correct distance from the bend in the bar (if that makes and sense at all!)

It rained lastnight so we'll see whatthat does to the traction. Mo looks pretty strong as well as Witman and Don V. for open mod. In spec mini dub is looking real good. We have a few others in spec as well. Jon Kerr keeps getting faster and faster with every chenge he makes. We'll see how we stack up one qualifying starts. We already have Teemu and P-dub looking good in the invite class.
