Come out anyway, if it rains which there is a 90% chance, we will go up the hill to the indoor track.

Norm just posted on the track's board that racing will indeed be inside tomorrow. Personally, I'd much just rather pop in a pair of ear plugs than spend 30 minutes setting up and tearing down my tent and table setup

You got yourself a nitro hangover and the only way to keep from getting it is to get your buggy together. That did suck, but it was a rookie mistake. I should have paid more attention to them while I cleaned my truggy between rounds...lesson learned. My worry now is I hope I didn't tear up my crankshaft on the motor, I will find that out in a little bit.

The turnout was awesome, it was nice to see all the new faces there.

That does suck dude. You guys should of stuck around 2 of the guys in ebuggy A main left before the mains started, thus bumping you guys up.

Found the problem in my clutch. The bearings are ok, it was one of the posts on the flywheel. It backed out about .5 mm and was rubbing the inside of the clutch bell, good thing I didn't give Jole my other good flywheel, or I would be ordering parts.

Craig, no enduro for me. My wife reminded me that we set that day aside so I can become a PA resident again. It's only been 10 months since we moved, I think its about time.

It did take long but that's the price to pay for a good turnout. Glad you guys could make it. Are yinz coming out for nitro madness?

We ran 15 min mains. But there was about 3 out of towners with etruggys that didn't race them. So they are out there, you just gotta find them and get them here at the same time.

Cool dude, ill see you at your track someday soon.

Yeah, I don't mind running with nitros if I have to. 15 minutes won't be a problem. Just checking.

Thanks!
