Great day at the hanger. Could have been warmer but at least it was a place to play. Finally feeling like I am making progress. . The main was my best run yet until I lost complete rear traction for some reason. With give the car a full tear down this week.

Sorry I didn't help with teardown Todd. Ran later than normal and have another appointment. Very glad it ran later than normal tho, means great attendance.

Was there two random bathtubs outside overlooking the beach in it too?

If it's been more than four hours, you might want to call a doctor....

70 entries? What's wrong with you people? It was cold. What was so fun about that?

It's amazing to see the numbers grow at H30. Someday, we'll have to use a lottery system just so that you can enter due to popularity. Wouldn't that be something?

I wanted to comment about the grip and the Traction Action. It would seem that we have tipped the scales and have gone to the other side of extreme over traction. It's now getting difficult to find tires (for the 12th's anyway) for the high grip. WGT's were tipping over too. Don't get me wrong, I would rather have too high of grip then the dreaded spins at 3 minutes. Can we consider not spraying TA for the next meet and see if things mellow out?

70 cars x 3 heats & mains = lots of laps! Wow!

It was great to see everyone come from 2+ hours away just to hang out in our wood shed. Todd must be doing something right!

Korey; were going to practice some tone starts if you're gonna put it on the pole.

Oh yea... I need to work on that haha.

It would be interesting to not spray for once. I'm noticing the track is fuzzing more now... probably because it's just saturated with traction compound and is now starting to deteriorate.

Side note: Anyone going to Salem? I was thinking I could hitch a ride with someone... but so far I'm the only entry from our area.

Video of the stock touring main on November 27th

For a while a nice battle between Alex, Nospoom, Lem and Frank for 2nd , 3rd, 4th and 5th. Alvin takes the win, wire to wire.

70 entries, I was bragging about 70 entries at work all day....awesome!!!

Traction: I agree that the traction is starting to go the "other way" as Brian has stated...Im sure Todd will figure out the right thing to do...

Despite the traction: I have watched the touring cars all season and have ran once early in the season. I have noticed around 80% of the cars traction rolling at times. In my opinion these tires suck on carpet. I love the fact that we will not change the rules mid season and everyone is in the same boat when it comes to things like this...but a change of tire is in order for next season. .

The Tub: I want to again thank everyone for supporting the Tub, I hope we are doing a better job each race.
