Had some time to kill while I equalized and charged packs for tomorrow. So I gave a shot at making a BMI pit towel.

Hey all,

Things are going well at nats. The BMI car of Eli, Mackin, myself and others all look good. I got down to 12.8 n practice, but a loose rear wheel (DOH!!) made my car quite unpredictable in the heat. That and some rough traffic. So I only managed a 12.9 in the practice heat and about 12 or 13 seconds of crashes. Fats lap is about a 12.5 in stock sedan. I am looking forward to tomorrow. basically my motors a rocket-my car handles great, but I am a bit too nervous. And I am nervous because my equipment is so good. Its a tough emotion to explain!!!

The traction is through the roof-and as always-the Carbon fiber dbl deck cars are disspelling the myth that they flex too much for high bite!!

Ray

Now there's a guy who knows where his towel is!

For all you Hitchhiker fans out there

Bill Sydor - Dik N Sydor.

How are you doing dude? Hope all is well in Kansas (I think it was). Things are good here. I had to skip this race. Totally sucks sitting here reading about it and not being there.

Take care bro!

not yet buddy,i cant find much info on anyone yet.i spoke to david joor this afternoon about the pro 4 testing.he said that the car was tweak free and consistant.he ran at the nats in practice and was having problems with broken arms and shock problems.he went back to the tc3 for the races but gave me the go ahead on making the chassis kits.he said that the chassis cured all of the pro 4's flaws.

Junior's having some problems-but being the patient pro he is-He'll turn it around.

I am 32nd in qual points and Elis is in th show. BTW-I am not upset about being 32nd at all. Two 23 lap runs so far. If I improve tomorrow and run fast 23's-I can put it top 20!!!

In my first run-I was very nervous and car was nervous too-only did 13.10. IN second round-left rear shocks leaked all its oil-out so car was a handful turning right. Had a great battle for position w/ Martsloff. Looking forward to tomorrow.
