Anyway, are you jet-lagged or are you sleeping late because the missus is out and about?

Don't you believe him D. He's been building the RRR all day. Even the GF is wondering if she'll see him before XMas!

In short ... he is pretending to be asleep in case GF is crawling the net to see if he's online anywhere. He's got the sign "Sick - asleep, please do not disturb!" on his apartment door!

Usual sleeping time on weekend (and sometimes weekends) can be a little late. Look at Uncle Crash ! He's also awake at this time and no jet lag ! Or perhaps he's having baby-lag...

I guess Mark still has some aces up his sleeve... When come to these sort of trickery, Mark is the MASTER. . You come close second Onkel Sow.

Well it's next weekend. The race is the RCAC club race sponsored by Maxy's fuel. The layout is the same as used on the previously held Novarossi race. Mostly the large and part of the usual straight but this time it's run CCW.

Actually D, this layout is not wierd at all and I loved it when I was practising the same way last year.

You see, when you're furthest away on the far right, you're also at your slowest. Then you just nail the throttle all the way to the end and by the time you're near left, you're at top speed and with best visual on your car.

Hair raising but one suggestion O'prophet ... use a lola if its allowed ... iit's hair raisingly fun!

It'll be a fast race!

Yes, I agree with you. But the long sweeper where the "normal layout" straights usually start, that part is bumpy like hell ! Makes your 1/10th TC car bump like you're driving 1/8th scale buggy !

Lolas are for sissies. This is a TC shell race.
