Things are bad on the tire front. I was told 30 days minimum. My order was back ordered. It is going to be a real problem.

should had asked the fairy to visit me and stay home too. yesteray was just terrible, got all sorts of problem with the engines and the cars. engine die right before the first qualifier starts, engine die right before the second qualifier ends, only ran 3 laps during the main. i knew i had a bad day when i couldn't even finish a bottle of fuel between my two cars. *sigh*

how did you do today ?

Missed 1st qualify because of bad outdrives, 2nd qualify lost front uni. so I limped through. 3rd was good. Started 4th B-Main, finished 2nd. Not too bad. The motor was working great. Not as much power as when we were playing with it, but it was reliable and consistent. Temps after main was 240. Guess I coulda gone higher.

Had a chance to try out that "cheap and nasty" JPL pipe today.
It's pretty much as AMGRacer said. Pretty good bottom end with somewhat less at the top end, though quite linear. We were on a medium techical track, so it worked nicely.
oh speaking of the turbo II pipe, I am probably one of the few ppl got the first batch, and I have a couple of brand new one in my box as spare! hehe I have to have some of those good stuff in my box!
