Its not about lap times, but I seriously doubt Id come too close to my owns buggy's time just because Im connected to it. Also, the electrics are much faster on paper and pavement. Once on dirt, they arent all that advantageous. As proven by many tracks I went to this summer
Does you gfriend/bfriend/partner know about this connection? How does that work? Dare I say "do you ride your buggy?" "is it an extension of yourself?" "do the two of you commit lude acts in public?" All along I thought we were talking engines vs motors.....boy was I wrong

I'm going home this weekend to celebrate my birthday, and I'm gonna grab my B3 and TC3. Seems everyone races these days with brushless/lipo combos. I've been out of the scene a LONG time. And I'm wayyyy too poor for a brushless/lipo combo.

Possibly but I'm rooming with someone else and have to talk to him. Also may have a good friend of mine staying Saturday. I will have a couple air mattresses with me because nobody is sleeping with me. PM me your number and I'll call you when I speak to him.

$130!!! Are you serious!!! That's twice what I paid with parking included.

Well, last fall. A guy from the Cesare Battisti promised to have one dropped off, by his connections with Penelec. He never came through.

A lineman from Verizon, said he would try. nothing yet.

A 30' pole in Ebensburg is only $25.00. Delivery and the guy returning my call are the hold ups.

I am trying daily to get one.

However, the meter box, ground rods and ground wire are already purchased. The electrician is already paid.

It WILL happen before Test and Tune in April, one way or the other.
