Scott, haven't seen you in a couple weeks. Me, Greg, and Dave have all gotten to be as good as Larry, Steve, and Drew so were ready to kick all your ass's when you decide to come, Just kidding. We have been practicing quite a bit and have diffinetly gotten some much needed consistancy. Greg got a 28 lap qualifier today which is only off the pace by a few seconds. I'm in the 27 lap range.

Everybody was making fun of that Bill guy this weekend and he couldn't take it and left crying friday night. Sorry about that Bill, we were just kidding.

This is the first week I have missed in a while, and I did turn a 28 last week... problem is that Drew and Steve both have fast 30's.
We need to work on our blocking techniques!

I think that Dan is on the right track. Consistancy is key. I know that it's fun to turn a 9.7 but I'd be pleased as punch with 5 straight minutes of 10.0's and nary a 9 in the whole run. That would get me past the 31 lap mark, I believe. I spoke with Greg on the phone tonight and he agrees....he'd trade the occational 10.7 for 5 minutes of 11.0's......he could easily work his way down from there.

Although I get a kick out of trying, unsucessfully I might add, to keep up with Drew, I'm having more fun watching all the converted buggy guys getting the hang of this onroad thing. Keep up the good work guys.....We all started out in about the same place at some point in time. Scott can tell you some stories about me trying to knock the boards down with my first 12th scale car in Carbondale IL....it was far uglier than anything going on at our track currently .

Looking forward to this coming Friday....

I'm having a great time with it. However, now I have "Steve Smith Syndrome" = Can't finish a main. I need to find some foam tires that cut the body instead of the other way around Does Jaco make anything like that???

Sounds like this Friday is going to be some good racing. I think the turn out may be the best we've had if everyone shows tha says they are planning to show.

BTW - I agree, "Dan" is ready to kick all your A$$s

Greg,

Rather than falling victim to my syndrome, I think you my have inherited it. I think I'm on a 3 main finish streak...woo hoo! 1 or 2 more finishes and I'll be at the .500 level. Good thing this isn't professional athletics....attendance would be down and I'd have been traded long ago.

As far as a more cut resistant tire, I fear you may be pissing up the proverbial rope trying those 2-stage tires. I can't say for sure as I haven't really come up with a way to test this theory but it seems that my 2-stage stuff seems to cut more easily and the pink layer delaminates from the under wrap. The rears seem more susceptible to this phenomena as the outer orange rubber on the fronts is undoubtedly tougher than pink rubber. This could just be a coincidence.....time will tell.

about the tires: i think somthing i noticed over the years is as my driveing got more and more better and im learning to stay smooth,staying up on keeping them glued down,and trued...have all slowed the chunking down for me alot, other than that i dont think theres a real way to do anything about it

Default chunk eliminator!!!!

Anyone interested in 19 turn rubber?

This will fix your chunking and save you cash!
Of course it would be a controlled tire class.
