I can get them way cheaper than that. I really like to avoid battery changes if possible. A inexperienced pitman could cause a expensive mishap.

I've ran quite a few 45 minute mains...it's rough sometimes (especially in the middle of Summer)...but fun!

The old track google videos still work but it looks like all of the You Tube vids are deleted.

The 45 minute main will be for that particular race only. We will, however, run 20 min mains this year, every week.

Anyone who smokes, dont have a cigarette lit and have a fuel bottle splashing it around in pit row.
think of it this way B-Rad.

How cool will it be when there's a Nitro fire and people throw watrer on it,, it's gonna be SSIIICCCKKKKKKKKK!!!!! ROFL
Nitro Fire everywhere!!!

Rob,, if your going to get a fire exstiguiser you may wanna look into a cemical one capable of putting out hazmat/flammable fires, but i'm guessing you already know that lol.

We could all throw a buck in the kitty, and the guy with the least flame-outs gets the cash.

I only brought this up because a neighbor of mine was at the local pub last night. Seems he and several others each have buck in the pot, and the one that guesses the closest day and time when the snowpile in the parking lot at the pub melts gets the cash You know you need a life when you're involved in something like that...... they even named it -"The Broad Top Meltdown!"

Rob would want a 10#ABC Multipurpose Dry Chem Fire Extinguisher. If your buggy gets sprayed by it, get alot of towels and get ready to do some cleaning!!!!!!

Hey remember me?!

I was the one with the really dirty X2 from all the dust you guys made me eat...

I am going to do my best to make it to openning day and any other race day for that matter. I was not psyched on the old layout or .. um.. ahhh... let's just say "level of fun-ness" of the .. um.. old regime. So excited to see what the new year will bring. Now if I can just get my crap together and get there!

My plan on the 45 minute main is to run backwards and take Ed out immediately. Seemed to work the last time...

Yes, it is definiately going to be a Chemical extinguisher.

The water is for fuel splashes, if someone gets fuel in their eyes. I guess bucket wasn't the correct word. More like bottles. You certainly wouldn't want to rinse your eyes with water from the buffalos. Stagnant water + Bleach + eyes = Hospital trip.

Have more faith in me guys, LOL.

Yeah. You know the one that was in better shape than him...

I have been pretty busy. When to Richfield a bunch but by the end of the season was too busy to do much of anything. Going to try real hard to not have that happen again!

Let me know if you need any help building the track...
