kilruf - use a cleaner called "Greased Lighting". You can pick it up at Home Depot or Lowe's. It is no where as harsh of a chemical, you don't need to worry about the fumes or contact.

Thanks Killing time. But JP showed me what he did to his car with awesome results. And it's very simple and easy. Something like 30 secs worth of my time with no ill effect to aluminum.... I'll give it a try maybe tomorrow.

Racing at Horsham yesterday was basically like a Nationals...

We had almost 50 guys in stock (A-E mains). Qualifiying was as follows:

1. Jason Schreffler (debuting his eXpress stuff)
2. Larry Fairtrace
3. Jeff Cuffs
4. Jon Williams
5. Mike Herald, Jr.
6. Mark Strasnick
7. Juan Carlos Buenano

Not sure of the rest of the main...

Qualifying in the third round was awesome! It was freight train most of the way with all of us in single file basically.

The mains were so exciting with the top four (Schreff through me) breaking away from the pack. Schreff and Jeff traded first back and forth, back and forth while Larry and I watched on safely and followed. Finally, Schreff clipped and with very little time left, Cuffs took over the lead and it was game over. Schreff then held off Larry until the end. I was hoping maybe there would be a little mix-up between the two so that I could pass them, but it wasn't to be.

In the 5th and 6th place positions, Mike Herald and Mark Strasnick had a nice battle going on as well.

All's I can say is that we're thrilled to have Schreff aboard, and if you weren't there, you missed sensational racing.

Hey Jon ran that Atlas stock motor last night at RCO and after running it a few times and two other new monster motors the Atlas stock ran the same lap times. I was surprised and the dno numbers are not as good as the monsters but at least on this track the Atlas was just as fast so that was really cool to me. Might get a few more to mess around with.
