That body looked great. Being a Harley rider, I loved the colors. Just bribe Clete with the red cup if he gives you any trouble.

Default Square?

So have you ever just staired at the car.... looking at what might need to be adjusted or tightened?... I started out trying to find out why the car had tweek.. everything was straight and messured to the thousandth .... so I thought
Shocks Lenght and collars all the same
All linkage rods= Same
Toe, caster, camber ... all good...
BUT I noticed the pillow balls were not... Awww...
SO FYI.... Check your Pillow Ball Knuckles.. measure from the arm to the hub and make sure they are the same lenght .. . 2 corners were .020 differance... After resetting the entire car.... No tweek!.. 2 freaking hours later!

See Russ, you would think that. But I've seen him in action. It's like a horse whisperer or something. It's like the car just knows it's time to get faster....

I found the fuel cap, Let's race. I stared at it until I went crosseyed, so it must be time to run it.

I posted a question on ROAR's Forum about when they will have rules for GT8 class. It has taken several weeks but received this posting from Steve Pond:

Mark, we already have rules drawn up and tentatively approved from the last ROAR annual meeting held last year.

Would be interesting to know what and when they were talking about putting these into print.

Yeah very interesting indeed......so with as many ROAR races running GT8 classes on the side this year....where's ROAR at to make them official since they have rules already?

Nice try Grenade ! I appreciate the effort, but you're not holding your breath are you? If you are......get a dive tank and have the shop give you a touch of medical grade nitrous to ease the pain of waiting for them to act.

Trickle.....where you been, there are new guys practicing to put the 'pass' on you.

Work's a hell of a thing.

All I can say is good luck.
