Default Mongoose / Serpent

I just had to reply to a fellow racer from Las Vegas on the Starting Grid Conference relating to the upcoming Ron Paris Memorial Race in October, and thought it was funny enough to post here !!!!

Quote:
Will, the Snake is ready to Eat the Goose......Buddy your Goose is Cooked!!!!
Doug, Yours too!!!!!Randy, Cirillo, Steve, Vaughn, I'll just let you guys cough behind my smoke......:-)

So I Replied Jokingly of Course because he is a good guy !!!

Quote:
Earl, The mongoose is well known for its aggressive hunting behavior. It eats rodents and "Snakes" and will even attack highly venomous snakes, such as a Large Serpent. The mongoose has been introduced to many areas to control snake populations, but its predatory habits often disrupt the ecosystems into which it is introduced!!! Like "Las Vegas"

Additional information since I know your laughing your *&^^% off !!!

Mongooses are small carnivores of the family Viveridae. There are about 30 different species, almost all native to ARIZONA.
Mongooses typically have a pointed head, a long tail, and thick hair except on the lower legs. They are commonly terrestrial, diurnal, and solitary. Mongooses feed on a wide variety of foods, including small to large reptiles such as Serpents. The ARIZONA gray mongoose may grow to 20 inches long plus a 16 inch tail, and weigh about 1725 Grams.

Mongooses of this genus are famous for their snake-fighting ability and are often portrayed fighting a Serpent. Research has shown that although the mongoose is tolerant of small dosages of Serpent venom, it is immune to it. Mongooses are almost always victorious because of their speed and agility.

Default Powertrain Calculator

I forgot about a post earlier that was talking about a Powertrain Calculator.

I have one on my site, and would like some feed back as to whether it works correctly now that it has been added correctly.

Give it a try and let me know !!!!!!!

Hello,

The first, to ask for pardon, but I am Spanish and the English is not my fort.

I like to ask them, to recommend to me a setup for my circuit.

My circuit is bumpy, and small, very re-veered (almost all the curves to left sides) and with a straight line of 50 meters, as for the grip, to say, that normally we run with 37 shore.

we run with touring bodies (in my case mazda 6), not with lola.

I need a basic setup.

best regards.

Droops=downstops
front/rear swaybar 0 degrees
shock positions, front/rear all the way down
the silver springs are soft, good for bumpy tracks.
