Hey Franko,

If I were you I would switch the receiver with the telemetry module, or is the telemetry coming out of there. I would worry about the tire hitting it. Just a thought. Looks good

Gracias. Yes, 64p. I'll have the Orange '70 Cuda & a couple of bucks for the gear if needed.

Hey Grant,

Standard TA-05 here. I ran a 64 pitch 100T spur and 40T pinion (5.625 ratio) and did 13 second laps, which dominated in novice and barely warmed my motor. For scale spec, I bumped up to 42T pinion (5.357), ran 12 second laps, and my motor is getting good and warm--not too hot though.

(If Todd would allow us 2 seconds, I'd check it after a race and see exactly how warm!)

If at all possible, can 1:18th go first, at least for mains. Its just getting too late for the mains for us to stay otherwise.

It's definitely a bummer, but the goal is to get the kids out of the Hangar first so they can sleep before another school day.

I hear ya though...I've been leaving after Q2 due to sleepiness and having to get up at 5am. Gonna try to stay thru the mains tonight unless the sandman gets to me first!

I have an appointment in Bellevue at 3:45, and I hope to start heading back to the west side by 4:45. Everyone who has tried that knows how hopeless it can be to cross one of those bridges during rush hour. So if I am late, please sign me up for mod and stock touring.

I guess I can sauce my tires in the parking lot (floating bridge).

See ya soon!

I picture you saucing the tires, car on it's stand on the dashboard.

Just make sure you crack the windows a little.

Ready to race tonight, see you all there!

Sorry Todd.
Doesn't look like I will have the pleasure of coming out tonight. Been at home the last couple of days nursing a sinus infection....UGH!!!

Don't worry though- I'm there in spirit

Understood. I was speaking of the program in general.

That's all the more reason to show up! May as well be miserable with friends instead of agonizing alone. Get well!
