Good job again, Whats up with you not putting in a transponder, only i'm supposed to do that.

We finally got a full day of racing in today (W/out rain), My car was very good, I mean it was about the best i've ever got it on asphalt w/rubber and I easily had most of the fastest laps all day. And even with it so good I only managed to qualify second due to bad qualifiers, and it was even worse in the main, we were all lined up and ready top go on the grid and about two sec. till the tone and the person in front of and behind me jumped and with me ready and excited to go I went when they did BUT I stopped thinking that the anouncer would restart it and everyone else kept going and of course he didn't restart so I was last out of the first corner and then was making my way up but at the back of the pack it's hard not to get wrecked (needless to say I did) so after I got wreked three times I was pretty much done and knew I wouldn't be able to win or even come close
(The top five were seperated by like 10 sec so I just pulled it off, but another guy running a warpspeed demon won, so I guess it was apretty good/fun day.

Vic said he is pretty sure we are going to go to Cleavland,so i'm going to send in my entry tomorrow.

In FL.

Yeah I hope so to, the only reason I didn't send it in earlier is b/c Vic didn't know if he could get the time off and if I would have sent it in and we didn't go I wouldn't get a refund, but now we know we can go.

Does anyone know for sure that it is completely full?

Axiom5B - Yes, the droop measurements are according to the AE droop gauge. As far as the F block in place of the rear, I have not yet tried the standard R block in the rear of the car. I would suspect more rear chassis roll w/ the R block and on really high traction tracks; I think it would increase your chances of traction rolling. Running the F block in the rear with the 2-2 block lowers the rear roll center and puts the car at -1 rear toe-in.

Hey Howard, how did you end up in 19t with the DEMON2? It was a little too hot today though, your car looked very well prepared for that race. The BSG looked very good, they have that in DEMON length though, right?

well qualified last. but the car was hooked up. was having motor issues. tryed the new reedy motor and it seemed to slow so i went back to the orion and in the second qualifier it smoked. It was on its last legs anyhow. so the reedy went back in. over all I finished 4th.

as far as the demon1 in blue you will have to contact Vic at warpspeed and ask him

Oh, first race bad luck. I have had that as well when I race a car for the first time. I did not see the DEMON2 race, but in practice it looked fast.
