SO bummed to leave before the mains last night!

WGT was total professional action. And I use the term professional loosely. But seriously, can that class get any better? Racing with old school dudes like Steve and Alex, aces like Brian, speed freaks like Lynn, and wunderkind like Jake? Awesome!

I qualified last but was still happy. 2 laps separated the top from the bottom qualifiers and everyone drove fast and with respect. If I can get Lynn's speed and Brian's setup you guys are in trouble.

2 laps, that's nothing. Try less than 1 lap for the entire top 10 at the last round of the NWIC. Less than 5 seconds for 4th through 10th.

Whoa, that's super close.


But for now I'll consider 2 laps behind Brian an accomplishment.

Good racing yesterday, lots of fun. Good to see some new faces.

Sorry to bail out so fast after the main, I was supposed to be meeting up with the girlfriend in Bellevue about the time I was starting my main. I told her I was driving...but didn't elaborate on what...

You should have seen my wonder when a tq set up at TZ2 wouldn't pull the wings off of a fly at H30 in R1. In other words, there is no cookie cutter set for all tracks. I had to quickly reconfigure the car for R2, change up the esc profile and .... wah lah! Bill; my feelings too, wgt is a good group to drive with. I know that we get tangled up and spit out, but we're not playing follow the leader. We're trying to go as fast as possible. Yes, Lynn's going fast, just got to chase that the little tweak gremlin out of the ride. Jake & Alex both are very quick. Steve's doing great. I am still searching for more steering at H30 without dumping it over. I bet we're all doing 34 laps by the series race.

WGT is a blast. More of you should give it try.

Have we done something to offend Mike, or are you just taking a breather?

I suspect we'll see ya at NWIC.

having fun racing with all, can't ask for more than that.

I had a great time being new to the Hanger. Thanks a million Wes for putting up with me and showing me a thing or two. It's good to meet new people who are into the same hobbies and are down to earth.

Now my son wants to get into it. His grandpa might hook him up with a kit. I'll have to stop in and pick your brain some time soon.

Default Race Results

Several new faces last night. Seth, Ben, Edan and Josh, Sain...I think that's it. Very encouraging, and all seemed to have a good time.

World GT is the bomb, right now. The cars are perfect on this track. That said, 1:12 is coming around, too. A little bit of fuzz still, but nothing that kills the run. Sean set a new high mark to prove it.

The carpet is pretty close to broken in, just in time for the Emerald City Classic.

See everyone again on March 10.

If Bill won't answer the Question, Then must be held accountable!
(Hint) # of fingers = # of cells.

BTW, the "Cape looked Dashing!" Although color of the Thights were a little too dork, ah I mean dark
