Ok, any of you carpet guys have a 200mm or 235mm pan car want to come and play on the asphalt with 2s and 10.5's ........

Tim and I have agreed to bring our cars to the next HOA race in Lincoln, Aug 10/11th ...... Come join in the fun and see how fun and fast these cars these are ........

Or maybe you just bring your mod touring cars and see if you can keep up!

Looking forward to racing with you guys in a couple of weeks.

To clarify - We run on asphalt. An onsite generator provides power. You will need tables, chairs, and extension cords. We race in a shopping center parking lot in front of Dee and Mee Hobbies which is open from 11:00 - 4:00 on Sundays. There's plenty of places to get food and drinks in the shopping center, or a short walk away.

Track is blown clean and prepped with sugar water. We have Road Rail as our inside lane dividers and 3" PVC for the outside barrier, and yes, there are couplers, so stay away from the outside barrier! Size is roughly 130x70?

Thanks Aaron!

Any idea on what most are running for gear ratio in VTA & USGT? How 'bout tires USGT, TC & F1?

A guess on what time the show gets done?

Thanks,

Tim Ski

Not sure on usgt.

Vta ratio, I run 3.5
F1 is 2.7-2.9

F1tires: Pit 571/572 for sure. Some rides may work also.
TC tires are whatever. People run a little of everything.

Usually when there's large turnouts the show finishes around 5pm, but I believe modifications are being made to improve that

Don't forget the EZ ups!
