Default 12th rollout

Alvin- are you talking 13.5 or 17.5? Just clarifying since we do have the regionals coming up. 80mm rollout would be far too low for a 17.5
Hey Pete, Awesome job at the Birds by the way. Actually, congrats to all the Pac NW guys that went, I'm honored to be able to race with you guys!

Hey Korey, Canyon may want to give the gear diff a try if your not running it.

I was asking about 13.5 rollout, for the hangar. Going to see how it goes with the S120 at the hangar then decide on whether or not to race it at nats. Thanks-Alvin

And if you really want too I will let up rebuild my shocks for me since I haven't built on road shocks in a couple of years...

The packages of blank pistons that I drilled are sold out but I will try to get some more done before the Hangar race on Wednesday.

We do not have the parts in stock to convert your rear pod, but I can order them for you. Call me at the shop if you would like to go ahead with that. 425-482-4328

Bring a shock to me the next time I am at the track and I will build it and show you how I build them.

I love y.... er wait.

Thanks Sean, Mr. Team Associated Region 11 Administrator
Also wondering on shock oil, springs. If you are running green all around, I need another set. I believe I have the right oil..

I'll be there on the 12th with my brand new AE shirt... cause AE rules!!

May hold off on the WGT stuff and just try and run it the way I got it..

Yea Pete, we are in for a treat and a treatment. You guys will just have to enjoy it until I get back. And btw: nice job at birds! That's pretty awesome you can finish up school, take the break and focus, then pick up right where you left off. Trav too! He's like the hot trophy chic on the shelf that you take down to look at once a year. He comes out swingin', then you put 'em back on the shelf looking good again. Awesome job guys!

Patiently waiting for the Porsche. The seller is settling a few issues. It will be worth it.

Default Track Build Tonight 5pm

I just want to give everyone a heads-up about tonight.

We start at 5pm. We can't go earlier because a car commercial is being filmed in the hangar in the afternoon.

First, we inspect the floor to make sure it's clean clean clean.

Then...we roll out the new rug!

Depending on how curled up it is, we will let it relax (thankfully, it's fairly warm today) and will take that time to inventory and repair some of our track hardware.

Then, I'll tape it and set the Panda loose on the layout. We're going to be modifying some pipes, as well as adding new ones. This is going to be the bulk of our work.

The enlarged, 10-person stand will also be erected.

So, to be clear, this is a work night, not a practice night. I'm not even bringing a car. All hands are welcome, of course.

The Panda is a legendarily stubborn beast, but this will be the one opportunity to buzz in his ear about how the layout should look. After tonight, it's graven tablets in the ark.

I'm shooting for a late dinner in the Broiler bar afterward. So, late but not terribly late. They shut off the grill at 11pm.

The doors will open for practice tomorrow at 8am. $10 per head all day. We'll do teardown at 4pm sharp.

No tape in the apex please. I trust in the Panda.

Won't be around this weekend, taking time off to get caught up on other things. My only track suggestion is what Wes said, and no overlapping the carpet so cars jump right before entering a turn... that was heinous...

Guys, I'm not bringing the full tub down tomorrow. I've got some stuff set aside for people that I will be bringing, but if you need anything CALL ME AT THE SHOP. PS, due to the snow our order of Jack did not show up and we are out. Sorry.
