Post On-Road track is clean

Hey all. We got the on-road track cleaned off. Took only alittle more than an hour to do. Thanks Brent, Greg and Jason Melnyk for helping.

Just a note for those of you coming racing tomm, we will be running both offand on road. Also the city changed the lock on the the gate where we enter to go to the back so we will have to use the one at the front entrance.

See ya at the track. We'll set up the computer but if there is only a few of us we'll just do a test and tune day. See ya then.

Hey all.

Well not a great turnout for racing today. Myself, Ren and Jason Melnyk. Brent showed up but he didn't stay. He did fix the loop for us. Thanks Brent.

Jason and I got some good runs in. I was down in the 14 sec range, and Jason was in with low 15's. Once we get some good running on the track we should see a groove start, and the lap times come down. Ren had his gas car out. Was going good till he broke it .

Next club race is in 2 weeks. Hope to see more faces out there.

TTYL

broke a front top suspension mount - and wondered why it only wanted to turn one way.....All fixed now and ready to run again.

For a car that hadn't run in nearly two years, it started up quite well, and ran fairly well once I stopped the body from trying to shut off the exhaust (forgot to make a hole for it ) These cars could be quite fun to run at the Fall Classic.....

Hey

I need what you borrowed back. ie the diff outdrive bearing and the rear and front tires from the GT.

Need to have April's truck in running order for her return. I know that we're mainly going to be racing onroad, but I need the truck to be complete whether it's for the track or the shelf.

Melnyk or Rob Jr...can you remind Mike Cassie that he still has to sort out the diff for his XXX with me ? We helped him out so he could be ready well before Kelowna, but that was a long time ago.

Default long weekend club race

Hey Brent

I have Sept 5 down as the last club race before the Fall Classic. This just happens to be the same weekend as the Red Deer final.

I suspect that at aleast a couple club members will not be at the club race as they head for the Final. Because of the holiday, I have to work the whole weekend so I won't be there.

May I suggest re-scheduling the race day for the next weekend, I think that we'll get a much better turnout. And I'd really like the practise with my TC before the Fall Classic.

JMO though.

Default Club Race before the Classic?

Ya, we could do that....I wouldn't be able to make it on Sept 12th due to work but whatever works for the majority of the racers. Who is comming out next weekend with their Touring Cars??? Kyle and I will be out for sure!

Some one broke the gate out at the track on the weekend and some damage was done to the building. A few glass pains were also broken by the front door. By the sounds of it, we escaped with no damage. A new lock has been installed on the gate by the city so I guess I will have to buy a new lock and get some more keys cut. Will let you know when all is done and then distribute the keys accordingly.

See you all Sunday....right??

Default before or after the 5th

We can race the weekend before the 5th if that helps any? Again majority rules here, so please everyone give in your two cents!
