Also thing making the back end a little tighter could help rotation as I was having to haul like hell on the steering to make it turn.

By the time the TZGP get here, I should have a car fit for total destruction thru time warpage !!

Ummm yea... can you make sure that the rest of us are not part of your destruction....

I've think I've heard of this race. Is there room enough to hang a hammock? A chance to rub fenders with a entertaining Englishman? Possibly an agitated street bike racer throwing profound wordage around? Is the owner of this place a charismatic charmer with the occasional blender incident and a fine damn griller? The out of towners support the ladies lounge? And the bar stools have wheels?

Yes.... I think I've heard of this race.

The real question is: Is Barbie going to be back?

AHAHHA... I am not really agitated... more um..ehh..well ok.... agitated might be the best description... but in a loving kind of way..

I am SO looking forward to another great TZGP with all the usual characters, and with any luck I will get to meet a few more over a St Cyr Slushy and a smoking grill. ... The GT8 class should be a hoot to watch and participate in! I do hope I get a chance to finish this year! (fresh motor helps)
The 8th scale open class will take top billing as some of the best drivers in the nation spill blood, sweet and nitro on the now famous TimeZone Raceway Park...pack you gear, your appetite, and get ready to ENJOY the lush green wilderness of the Northwest!..... i wonder if Godson still has that Bigfoot costume?

Brian, stop by the USS Cletoris when you arrive..... we may have room for that hammock...

So here's the deal...If I have to pit for Rick or Doc... there is 'no senior moments', no Monster breaks. Rick; you own the place, nut up!. Doc; plan ahead: from the C is tough. And damn it, if I have to buy a new fender for the trailer to get you past the damage of that one evening... give me the part number. Slapmaster's got this one. ... and why was that guy running around with an electric diff anyway? Don't know about you guys, but I want to see Drew cut a new TQ on the stool.

Well kick both of those guys to the curb and I'll add 1/8 Masters .........

Then there will be no worries about me getting out of the "C"

OK BB -
You're obviously upset about the ribbing I've been giving you for my fender. Sorry bud, just flippin' ya s***t. I never leave a race with fenders on my race cars, so why should the trailer be any different?!

As for 1/8 Masters, the reason most of us are in it is because we have "senior moments"!! You youngsters just don't quite understand yet.

As for the main, I think all Master drivers would appreciate a 10min. Monster/smoke break at the 1/2 way point. Hell, I don't know if I can stand up long enough to complete a full main anymore. It'll be fun trying though.

BTW BB, there should be room in the Holiday's Inn Express.........
If you're willing to share a bed w/an old man who farts alot in his sleep.
If not, there's always room on the patio.

The gas powered bar stool is just NUTZ!
