Man, last night was FUN!! It sure feels good to be back out on the track... Although next time, ill have to move myself down to Intermediate, I just cant keep up with the Sportsman anymore, Im just getting in the way(luckily I still have enough skill and common sense to get out of the way of people comin up on me)

The plus side is I finished all 3 races this time. I got a lot better pictures last night than friday, so that was another plus let me know if you want some pics of your car, and ill send wich ones I have to you. Im not sure when ill be down again, it's still a bit pricy to pay $20 a night, so I wont be there all the time, but maybe somthing like every other friday or somthin like that.

Great job on the track guys! it really kicked butt, really smooth, and really fast. Best track I have seen prolly since Supercross.

(not so sure about the "good" part, they are decent, but not much money worth yet.)

The Novak 13.5 is a pretty big hit right now for stock, or if you want to go mod buggy, the 8.5 is a good start, or get a 7.5 and turn it down a tad, then work your way up, truck, I use the 6.5, perfect speed and torque for the truck, and 4WD use either a 6.5 or 5.5 (you really only need the 6.5 because it's not THAT big of a track to use a 5.5)

anyway, thats just my 2 cents. You can always come down an talk to some of the more expirienced drivers



Alex, did you get the pics I e-mailed you?
