D4Man -My T4 felt good and I was looking for you on the track all day yesterday but I just didnt have it when I needed it. That track was Tech-ni-cal! I couldnt get any where near the top 3 or 4.

Results aside, we had a great time. I think we'll be back at least 1 or 2 times this winter.

Hey Eddie, I hate that track. The old track was the opposite of this one. It has the typical Doug McCullough two-line rhythm section and in typical DM fashion, the outside line is useless. Did you think traction was good?? Yeah, it was ok, but it could have been alot better. Again, in typical DM fashion, the heat gets cut off a 1/4 of the way thru the day. The fees were raised last year to combat the high prices of fuel and now with cheap diesel fuel and an insulated pit area, the heat gets RUN LESS THEN IT DID BEFORE. MAKES NO SENSE TO ME. I AM SICK OF THE WAY THINGS ARE DONE.
Sorry I was late, I overslept, I would have loved to pit near you guys.....Call me a couple days before and give me a heads up before you come next time.

Yeah - That part gave me fits all day but the traction was definately good! If I had just a little more practice . . . . I still would have came in 6th or 7th!

I'll try to give you more of a heads up the next we go, but, sometimes I dont know we're going until Friday night.

Double the first part, roll the rest thru the center, double the last one, thats what I did. The winner of the mod truck main was rolling it also. Yes, guy are doubling it but I saw alot of guys paying the price on their lids....

Also, 4wd mod used to be first until someone got screwed by the SPORTSMAN marshals. Interesting, now mod truck is first....wonder why.....

Sorry Mike I will not be able to make it over till tommorow!

Dave, it was definatley cool to get over there and do some electric off-road! I had a good time and didn't get my ass handed to me like I thought I would! Traction was not really an issue for me either although I'm eager to see what the slicks I got from C.R. are like the next time we make the trip!

There has been a track change for Saturday. The oval is going back to the paper clip and the road course is the same direction, but completely different. The sweeper is gone.

It's 99% done, we just need to finnish a couple small things for Saturday.
