I'm not a big drinker so I've never raced after a few drinks, but I have to take pain killers for back problems and it makes me race like crap. I've been taking Vicodin so long I don't get the same buzz most people get but it slows my reactions so much. I try to just deal with my back hurting at the track until after I'm done.

Not tried it, but more than likely I would somehow connect my cells up to the car or charger the wrong way and blow them up, and if I didnt do that i'd be looking at a lot of small pieces of graphite after a few corners, lol.

On that note, no I wouldnt suggest trying it lol.

What r u sayin tassi is on harder stuff ( mums crack!)...
I don't think booze would heve any affect on nexxus's driving....
Me,,,well i need somthing to help, if you're tense going in to the first corner, i seem to over think the whole thing and slow down too much to make the corner, and get the feild up your ass and push you off the track.
So a littel bit of liquor calm's me down from exploding and get on with the job.
PS speekin to bill before a race dulls the sensors to much

Nicotine is my answer... and you can drive home afterwards without needing to worry about being over the legal limit
