I had to order some 302551's but was too excited to wait to take pics, therefor it's off. But good eye bro, you really know the xray. I got one on there before I ran it.
Hey John... whose T1 did that solid upper deck come off of? See you on saturday buddy, first day of outdoor! I'm still waiting for a G4...

Hey John I think you might need that winter jacket that we needed at the last ORL race we were at in Limerick when it snowed. Do you hae tire warmers that fit your whole body.

We have to wear shorts out here, ~70 to 95 here depending on how far away from the coast you get.

I'm hoping for what they're forcasting for this saturday. 62 and partly cloudy. That will be a good first day. A few years ago the first race day it had snow showers.

I also remembered when I played LAX in college, a few days it snowed while playing. That's cold when you wear a T-shirt/jersey and shorts. Hits by sticks sting your legs! But I was a goalie, so shots hurt even more. Man, those were the days...I was so immune to pain, I got bruises on my legs by the ball, and 5 minute later the bruise was gone. I remember one shot bounced off my knee cap and sailed through the air, across the field and over the other teams goal. That was amazing.

i was a goalie too. Got capped once by a guy that was clocked at 110 mph with the ball. I got some knee pads after that... The ones that hurt the most where the glancing shots. Like getting bitch slapped with a baseball bat.

I moved to long stick and took one in the gut. I used to do 300 situps a day - didn't hurt any. I got some respect after that one. hehe. I played outside linebacker in college as well. Most Lax players are soccer wimps - can't hit to save their lives. Kind of fun to clean someones clock once in a while.

I ran the Factory Kit for the first time tonight in a club race, the car is more stable around corners with less body roll. The new hinge pin locations changes the roll characteristics of the car so be careful for the first lap or two during practice. It is really easy to tune yourself out with all the new modifications (ie 9 positions for roll in front, and 9 more in the rear). The new front linkage position on the bulkhead gives just enough steering while maintaining proper geometry. Love the milled out bulkheads, outdrives and universals. If you are fortunate to have this car, you will be pleasantly surprised at it's "out of the box" performance.

What up Neil, just got back from a two week rest thanks for the headup on the
new kit.
