Just checked the weather at weather.com and they show no chance for rain tomorrow. Tunnelhead, can you bring some tires for sale, I tried to get some the other day but they were already packed up. Some 27's and 30's premounts would be great. Thanks.

Now just hope that the T2 works outdoors!!

Looks good so far for tomarrow. Sunny with clouds. Will be on the cold side though. Great day for 22's and 27's. We will bring tyres and other items. The shop should be pretty well organized by Sunday. So if you guys need something the store is only 5-10 minutes away. Look forward to seeing you all. Also cant wait to see this new track Mark made up on paper. 12,000 square feet. It will blow your minds.

David, how did Gilroy go?

Gilroy went pretty good. Lap times were good enough to contend for the win but the driver wasn't. Qualified 2nd by .02 of a second. Changed setup for main and car was really good. I wasn't used to the car turning that well and the first couple laps, well.. sucked. After that and moving back to like 4th place, (and watching EJ take off) I got it going and was right on pace with him. But the new car is awesome. We'll see tomorrow how it is outdoors. Results are here, http://www.turnmarshal.com/results/M...01-13-2006.htm
Oh, and I will bring your new used car as well. See you guys there.

Shopkeeper, all the more reason for us to have a indoor carpet track.

Not enough racers to support the high cost of the size of building needed.

Well, that is a great attitude to have about it. If a track is run right I am sure it can make it. Negative crap like that doesn't help anyone. Thanks though, maybe that is why your track doesn't do well.

Default Carpet tracks

xxxkat,

Although I do appreciate other peoples opinions, I do not care for your negativity about carpet tracks. I am sorry that your track is not a huge success, but we all have seen your opinion and have noted it. Please do not clutter this thread with why you think a carpet track would not survive.

Orrin
