Teflon Tape or Plumbers tape as some places call it works great, that's what I use when I do it, but leave some slop.

Default Ride to Timezone GP

I'm heading out Friday morning directly after the kids are off to school. If anyone wants a ride I have room for two in the Passat. We should get to TZ shortly before noon. I'm staying at the Battle Ground Best Western. KLMason Racing International will cover the gas.

LMK.

Todd, I might be up for this...there's a complex network of schemes, plans, and subversions taking place.

I'll be in touch!

Thanks for the post! I missed that as well and was planning on showing up to God only knows what at the Hanger on Wednesday. Looks like a 3 week gap this time and every other from here on out.

Looks like there's a 3-week between Dec and Jan, too. It's like when you get paid every two weeks, vs. twice a month. Every few months you get an extra paycheck. Every few months we wait an extra week between events.

Ah, well I'm not snatching the Master of Revels crown off Patrick's head, to be sure. But I like to toast the day

We race the on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. The Barn Owls get the 1st and 3rd, and the occasional 5th. So, you would have seen a whole bunch of indoor flying.

This is how the drive to Paved nats went. After Jake, Tim, and myself pissed Todd off to no end (Tim and I constantly making fun of Todd, or Jake eating in his car), or whenever he was stressed out at the track... he was all cranky. You give him a jin and tonic at the end of the day, and he's one happy camper

So if you piss him off, just give him a drinkie. He'll be good

It seems this works for most everyone in the Pacific NW as well.
