I hate it when my personal TP malfunctions. Takes weeks to get my fingernails clean.

Having the coil after a low speed corner, where cars are accelrating and amp draw surges are huge doesn't help...

Despite the lack of a trophy presentation, we did manage to track down all of the winners for their magazine shots. I do wish there was a presentation, though--the race ended around 6PM local time and another hour for trophies would have saved everybody a lot of grief and really shown what the race was all about.

This thread is like an old ep of Geraldo, I expect the chairs to start flying at any time!

I HATE F'ing DOTS

and that is one of the things I hated about VEGAS! and what was up with it being "PAN" dots. they chunked your tire and flipped you upside down. The other thing aobut vegas was the marshalls not having a place to go in the sweeper and on the straight hard way to marshal with those banners up on the track edge. but cleveland was the same way with the crowd. but the "ice" dots at cleveland were just weird.

first rule of track design is to have the start finish line at the end of a straight and if you bump someone to win it's blantant not just getting into the corner hard. also you don't have to worry about PTs not counting like happen at our local track a couple years ago with a loop in a corner. it was commented late on sunday that the powers that be would of liked to have the loop before the kink at the end of the straight. hindsight.

and they fixed what they could on the straight for the bumps but even terry walked over to mount cleveland in front of the drivers stand and tried to smooth it down to no avail. looks like this new crc carpet stretches a bit more.

other then that I loved the layout. terry out did himself. i just drove like an idiot with the punch from my www.thunderrc.com batteries but there is always next year.
