Plumbum...I think that may be your only chance..unless you head way south...

The way the weather has been aroundhere lately I was thinking of hitting our regular tracks...we're still in the double digits (Celsius).....

Korgae told me about the Inddor race this coming February..andit sounds great..if only I didn'tlive on the other side of the country

I've been to Florida before.....I was there in the winter of '83/'84 with my family....

You remember..the year of the big freeze?

Went to Busch Gardens and all the flowers were dead and therewas actually ICE on some small puddles one morning....

We've been in the 50's the llast couple of days..but we're supposed to be plunging into the 30's by theend of the week...

I can't tell you howmuch that SUCKS...especially when my buggy is staring at me..wanting to go for a run

Don't do anything silly...

just send it to a retreat in Ontario....

It's ok....youmay want to double check some things anyway...

I noticed some small metal shavings when switching the direction of my carb...

looks like my nice pretty shiny new P5 has some shaving in it leftover from the manufacturing process...

I guess a teardownand thorough cleanign should be part of their instructions..glad I caught it

We're running clay based tracks locally, but the weather keeps them from settling into something really really solid..

The yellow clay cracks and flakes, so the conditions range from hardpacked and smooth, to rutted and dusty....when it holds moisture traction is near limitless..but when it dries out it gets dusty and loose...it's all over the place...

There was originally a sand-based trackon the grounds of the local track though..and it seems to keep working its way to the top.

There's just sooo many different conditions..it all depends on who builtthe trackand how they built it...

Buggies and monster trucks are by far the 2 fastest growing classes though, so I suspect we'll see some nice dedicated tracks springing up soon instead ofthe tighter multi-purpose tracks
