Back from Victoria! We didn't win, but we had a blast. There was whole building of fast guys there. Tough and fun. They only run 12th 17.5 boosted, so the track was sized accordingly; 36x75 with 6' lanes. Twisty! Sean; you would have loved this. All I know is there is now 4 guys that are totally pumped for Wed night. Here's some pic's of the trip.

Just by chance I was browsing on Youtube and saw this video just a couple days ago. I didn't notice it was where you guys were going but once I saw the pictures I put two and two together

I LOVE how tight the track is ! It must have been a blast !

How do you get up on that drivers stand. It does not look "Big Guy" approved.

But the track looks killer, very old school tight, me likey.

Except for Peter, that dude is pure trouble, he needs a new avatar too.

Well its time to return to Hanger 30 this wednesday and going to bring my WGT and TC this time. I noticed you are running 10.5t non booster ( I think). Does anyone have a gear ratio to start. I am running 54mm rear tires. I also notices that the spec tire for TC has changed and was wondering if they are available at the track? thanks. Mike Mittlestead

Hi Mike, I have a NIP set of spec rubbers you can have for $20 if you like. I think they sell for around $26 normally. Was going to buy a TC but it never happened. Let me know and I can bring them.

I am running a 88t spur in wgt but can't remember the pinion....it's been a few weeks since I've touched the wgt car.

Hell yes! I woke up this morning and instantly started running thru a mental "to-do" checklist for racing on Wed.

Mike; shoot for a 70mm r/o in wgt.

Steve: yea, there were some loading style ramps to scale the drivers stand. If you have bum knees, it would likely be an issue. Remember that one lay out I made at Raceway that had 5' lanes with that crazy section of slaloms that emptied out into a less then 4' foot opening? Well, it was like that but with 6' lanes! It was a blast!

If you remember to bring the tire I will get them off of you. I have a 92 spur so i will put that on then get some gearing at the track. Thanks for the help.
