Ok thanks guys, this will be my first time out with the ShepherdV8'11. I ran the car this past weekend only to break in a motor. I have the stock setup on it now and the car felt pretty good. I did not push it because I did'nt want to break anything. I will try to bring as many spare parts as I can,but you never know what your going to need. Thanks I will look you up when I get there.

I am running the V8 '11 also. The car hooks up at our track pretty well. I have only ran it twice now, but each race was better than the last.

Stock Set-up except I was running white rear springs and blue fronts. I am going to try a 909 body. I was using a Blitz Body but will be running the 909. As for Tires I was running 35 front and 35 rear. I had a good deal of steering as it was so i did not go try 32 front which some others have run.

I can't wait untill the GLC starts! 4 days off from work, the move will be done ; the only problem is that it is also my last race fir the year.

I dont know the numbers but you should not have a problem running both classes. There are typically enough entries that the classes are very spread out. typically 16 or 17 heats

I would if I could, but I'll be in Missouri that weekend.... I had to decide either to miss the GLC or MWS. So you can tell which lost. I had to come to the GLC, I didn't want to miss Mr. Rick Vessell and him putting the smack down with his driving talents. Sorry, I couldn't resist
