rcdude19641-- You do not know about the brush trick? Everyone knows about the brush trick. It is good for a couple extra watts! It is all about electrical flow!

Downtown-- Thanks for the kind words. There are guys that gear higher and some that may drag with me down the straight but I always try and gear for max infield performance. This is where you gain the most time IMO. Glad you guys have found the info useful.

Steve-- We had some good runs. I had that one bad lap in the last qual or I would have had TQ at the supercross! (Yeah I know everyone always says that! ) I wish the main would have been a little cleaner. I blame myself for some of it. I got into a couple people I did not mean including Ryan J. We will see how things go for the Cactus. I can hardly wait to get out there again. It has been 5-6 years since I have raced at that track. Had such a good time the first go around I am looking forward to seeing what I can do this year. There are quite a few good AZ locals you need to watch out for at this race. FYI

Yeah, once you figure out the inductance of your paticular pair of brushes, you can decide which side to install them on. Well enough on that.

It looks like we're going to have a full crew at the Cactus. Hide the women and children.

BanzaiScott: You're terrible!!! You're gonna answer the

phone calls and emails on that one!!!

Right Casper?!

NC-hopsing: Well, it looks like it's MANDATORY to run Banzai

at the Cactus this year!! So, I guess I have to hook you up!

Are you staying at the Banzai "6" motel too??

We'll be at the 1st JBRL race, which is before the Cactus, so you

can come and meet us then, if not before!! I have to ask, nc-hopsing,

everytime I see that I think, is that like hopsing from the Ponderosa??

Casper, and you should see the ones I'm matching

for the Cactus!! I have my new "soak 'em 2 days", then

"soak 'em 7-10- days", formula I'm working on! Then

match em!
Judi

Actually, I do have the soak 'em thing to perfection!

See--it is the "brush" trick that makes all the motors so fast!

You are now responsible for the flood of "soaking" questions!

You use your "special" comm cutting fluid right!

Judi--Yes, the Beck to Galaxy deal will be a good thing for US Soccer. It will be a much larger impact than when Pele left Brazil to play in New York back in the 70's. Beckham is a "icon" before even playing the game here in the states. Here in the US he will be able to play for several more years and will be a household name that most people in this country are already framiliar with. If nothing else, he will fill every stadium that he plays in, even if it's only with screaming teenage girls who wish they could meet him. He already has a soccer academy based out of Home Depot center that has been going for a few years now. As for being overrated, it just depends on how you look at it. On an international level and or Real Madrid or Man U level, yes he is past his prime. But on an MLS level, he will be great for the game. This deal has been in the works for a very long time now, so it's NO surprise that it happened. Look for many other top name players to come to the MLS toward the ends of their international careers. It allows them to play the game they love for several more years. It's like a study in product marketing. When a product goes through it's projected market cycle, you look for a new market. That's exactly what Becks is doing. Props to him for this and to MLS for having the balls to let it ride on a player like him....

Did I mention I coach high school soccer, and live a die for the game...

Ok, I brought that on myself! An ole time racer, who

has been around even more years than any of us, gave me

the soaking formulas with the promise I would never share

it, and I haven't! So, for all of you considering calling and

emailing, I am a woman of my word, will go to the grave

with that secret!

And I did share the special comm cutting fluid, you guys just

didn't like it and clean up!!!!
