Default hmmm

Sounds like maybe if we all just brought our rackets, we could just change the nature of our little get togethers at the Hanger.

Hmmm

There is both, more general debris than tennis ball fuzz seems to be my main issue. Its just that normal fluff that carpet track's get. Staying in the groove I had at best a 6 minute car. Start off peeling 12.7's to finishing the race barely breaking 13.9's..more like 14's.

BUT we are all dealing with it so I'll stop pulling my hair out thinking I mucked up my setup...

I have a 120ft of cord and the vacuum packed, I'll show up around 10-11, I have to skip out and run errands and then come back later in the day to practice.

I don't think the hangar needs anymore holes in the windows or walls, they seem to be doing a fine enough job of that on their own...

You vacuum packed your 120' cord?

5x9x3 bearings with 1/2 rubber, 1/2 steel shields just arrived in time for the weekend's romp.

would using a leaf blower to blow off the floor before laying the carpet help? or maybe instead of vac the carpet, blow it off as well?

What time does burgermaster open on Sat morning? I forget.

Default Tub News

Our vendors now carry CRC grey/low rear tires so they will be in the tub soon.

Nationals: We are placing a 1/12 tire order on Sunday. If anyone would like us to order you some tires for Carpet Nats, let us know and we would be glad to get them in.

Todd , our fearless leader, already braves the harsh arctic cold and uses a leaf blower ( on the floor ) before all the weekend races. Because of the time takes it probably isn't possible to do it on weeknight races because we get out at midnight or later already...

I don't remember when burgermaster opens on Saturday but I think it may be 6am ?

Not mine I shave.

You local give them hell. Looking like I won't be making the event this weekend. More moving drama on my end. Someone who lived with me was suppose to finish the cleanup and take all the stuff they wanted. Well that didn't happen. Four dump runs later here we are. Anyway any money I have to spare I really want to go to Nats. And that still isn't a given. Anyway good luck guys. Hope it's as fun as races past.
