Thank's, they do a good job keeping the track in top shape, it is the best facility in Ontario and probably in Canada, but the folks at Gleenwood, NY will soon have one of the best facilities in North America, they are for shure working hard at it....

Best in Canada No doubt....with the racer's to back it up.

I look forward to possibly making it out this summer for a Hardcore race.

Secret RC bank account with paperless statement
Hide cash around the house
Using VISA / Master / Amex gift card load up for your own.
Giving friends cash they transfer into your paypal account.

Its was a funny conversation definitely picked up some tips.
wow thats pretty sneaky ... can get your marriage in trouble. Better to keep all your upfront. Not necessarily announce "HEY GUESS HOW MUCH I JUST SPEND!!!" but only if she asks. After all you are the bread winner. If she rants about it then you rant about her JCP card, manicure, pedicure, hair dresser, makeup.....(list goes on) you're not he only one that spends money.

If i spent half as much as you guys each month i would have gotten the I dont think so from the wife. Even my hidden credit card i use wouldnt have helped me with what you guys are spending. If its the middle of the season im doing about $100 a month at the most. Thats just club fees, tires and fuel.

just spent about 400 yesterday. Funny thing is, i didn't get anything i really wanted.

tires, oils, pins, cvd's, springs, gaskets, screws, con rod, brass bushings, m2c rear extended brace, a new JC body, shock ends and O rings, standoffs, shock tower, shock boots, manifold springs and gaskets, glow plugs, piston clips, air filters, some new MIP wrenches, damper cap bushings, skid plates, and a but load of screws from tony.

btw, if you can find what you need from tony's screws, he is cheaper then just about anybody


Like i said, maintenance mainly. Would of liked to have gotten a new motor

oh well.

Not the racers, the track has dedicated labours and operators to keep it up, groomed and clean.
