I need to make it to some local sedan races, the long trips are getting kinda old. What's HC's schedule?

First Saturday, third Sunday. Tractions pretty good there. It's fun to run on some of the smaller tracks. As small as that track is, I was only turning low 14's because it's so much tighter than the big tracks. I was able to run an 8x2 and not be too over powered. I could probably make a good 19 turn just as fast though.

I'm not sure. But we only ran 4 minutes in mod for some reason. I think I did 17 or 18 laps.

Hobby Town runs the fourth Sunday of the month. There's pretty good grip there too but it's a postage stamp. And you'll want to raise your ride height. There's a ridge that runs down the middle of the whole track. Tight and technical though. It'll test your driving.

Are we going to see Mr. Barnes racing in SD? Nice. Bring some friends. Hobby Central is trying to get the money together to pay for a transponder system.

4 minutes? Hmm, I only raced stock so I didn't notice. I got 21 laps in the main (5 minutes though).

4 minutes was the norm for modified when the sofware that they use was first written. I think they can make it five minutes but they just ignored it and let us run for four. No biggie.

Jon-
Thanks for the motor.

Glad to run mod, although you wouldn't know it saturday, all sorts of problems. I guess running 2 classes in only a few heats didn't give me enough time to really be prepared. A few problems and I was really scrambling. Should have dropped the stock class much earlier and focused. Had a couple fast laps, but plagued by problems. Oh well next time.
