Ican always expect a clean start at Trcr, if not we restart the heat...
So its true our starts are very clean as the racers get to practice doing so .




You cannot ... Only hear whine about the guy that can't seem to start clean .

This makes your racing a bad experience experience for both you and the other guy you get sore & complain about ...

TQ loves watchN others tear each other apart while checking out .

Whats the sport in that ?

I would love to get that kind of life out of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. Maybe it's my driving "style" (if you can call it that), or maybe I over-sauce.

The more I think about it, the more I think it has to do with sauce. My tires are SUPER sticky, even a week and a half after the last time they were used. I think that's what lets the rubber balloon out and thus wear so unevenly. The price I pay for traction.

Time to buy more tires.
are these belted? no idea.

and I think I use my throttle but 130* means I could use MORE haha

Who's looking forward to next Saturday?!?!?!

Love watching all the battles in qualifying for the track records! Tracks getting fast. Little over two months to try and take them down! New layout goes in at the start of 2014.

The people on here that actually know me know that I don't take it seriously. Not to mean I wasn't thrilled to win it but it was only a masters race with only 7 or 8 racers. Whenever someone mentions it I say ' that plaque and 5 bucks will get me a cup of coffee. What was posted as a joke earned me a pm with a vail threat attached which will be reposted for all to see later. Cant copy and paste on my phone.

And while I'm not a psychologist I did say at a holiday inn express and promise you, at the next race the mains will have clean starts thanks to this discussion.
