Lee,

Just alot of testing....no racing.....no butt kicking....Maybe 30 guys out today.

The most fun has been watching the Tamtech Frogs race on the offroad track.

Lee,

Great weather, about 75-80. B3 tires were hooking up great, no matter what the insert.

Fast drivers for Wednesday were: Norcal driver, James Arluck was fast in gt2. Socal local Walter Cosico was fast in gt1 and a yellow swift looked good from a young kid...Father and son team, maybe Wisconsin.(sorry, did not know his name) then John Christensen and Troy Crabtree. Rod Canare looked good in his little frog in offroad.

Technical layout....lap times for:

GT1 - 23 turn are around 15.7
GT2 - Black Can are around 17.4
Mini's M03 & M04's are around 18.0
Tamtech Unlimited Frogs around 14.5's
Stock frogs are around 18.5 seconds

Packing my gear now. Won't be able to sleep tonight, but there's always time on that 5 hour flight! Splitting things up as best I can to avoid the "Oh $&%&$#" at the end of the line.

Seeya tomorrow!

To Make my Leester cheering section happy I did have some 16.5s today.
So much for that cat. . .
Low 17s were my average.
I have been running black canned motors and GP3300s all week.
Finally tomorrow I will be testing new tires, I should be faster. . .

Lots of fast guys in each class. . . Weirs mini looked wicked fast. . .

MM I have a spot for ya, not sure what tomorrow will bring, probably will eat out. You might have liked the Korean BBQ Buffet from tonight.

ok back to wrenching. . .

Ling has no chance. Rod and I practiced the 'typhoon bumper' technique against the other chumps so that we could take out the field on the start and let Steve W take the win for team '03

Kevin, not sure who you were timing, but all the limes you listed for fast times are way off, Might want to get the stop watch checked. As for your car it was slow, if I could run a clean lap with the junker I was running I had your number. I was really surprised I could hang with you.
But from Times I saw you need to average a second a lap faster then your fast laps.
low 15 seconds for GT1
low 16 seconds for GT2
low low low 18 seconds for Mini.
I didn't pay attention to Tamtech, But I heard Dave Jun got into the 13's

Don't pay too much attention to laptimes until Friday afternoon

I believe that Fred will have to lower the minimum lap time for Tamtech. I forsee some 12's and dare I say 11's during ideal conditions (stars aligned, voodoo chant preformed successfully, etc, etc...)

Mike, that move was awesome. However, we shouldn't have to resort to those kinda tactics...leave it to Shake n Bake
