If your trying to figure out how to put protection on your shock towers look no further than the bottom nubs on a 500ml pop bottle.
You’ll get 5 from 1 bottle.

Ahhh....the Facebook. Not a place I visit too often. Was there a start time mentioned?

I guess I now have a little more time to get my B5M ready!

Thanks Kevin!

Opening Day.

Hello everyone,

The first race day of the season and the first off road race on the carpet at CARCAR will be Sunday December 17th.

We'll open the doors at 9 AM and practice until around noon so everyone can get used to the rug and get your cars set up. We'll start racing after that.

More details about the schedule for the rest of the indoor season will be coming soon.

See you there!
