When I went to the birds a few years ago I didn't even realize that I was running backwards untill someone brought it to my attention. This shouldn't be an issue here either. Besides, it's a roadcourse, you're turning right and left anyway, so it's no big deal.

It's not a huge issue but there is one car on the market that is offset to the battery side so the chassis rubs on high speed sweepers going counter-clockwise where it wouldn't rub going clockwise. You can setup around it.

I'm excited to see what you have planned buddy.
Like it makes a difference whether or not you supported this race to begin with?!?! So now that you support this race everyone else should? Talk about self-centered.

Oops, slight error on my part with the schedule on my original post. Forgot the potential Wednesday practice based on the possibility of high turnout. It's been corrected.

There will be a control tire for rubber TC. The brand and compound aren't set in stone yet, but will be in the not to distant future.

Max: Thanks. I really want to take this thing by the bootstraps and make it impressive again.

Walt and Chuck: Yeah, I'll probably harrass you guys at one point or another about this thing.

Sorry John,
