I'll be at trackside this weekend. Not sure which day though. I should find out tonight. I'll probably race stock foam and stock rubber at the sizzler.

Forever Yours,
Euge

7celler...Yes you can run stock foam or stock rubber. I would probably run Stock Rubber if you are new. Trinity C027 and the Monster Stock are the most popular.

pickup some Hurricane 6 cell packs too and you'll be all set :P

suck it. for some reason, i thought the sizzler was at the end of the month (as it was last year), so when it was going to be put down this week, i had previously calculated 3 weeks. even when i realized the sizzler was earlier, i just maintained the thought that the layout was going down as much earlier.

what are the chances scotty will stay late on saturday? wanna give me some input on my lastest setup this weekend at trackside? i assume you'll be on rubbers, though. let me know. also, wtf am i going to do for 7 hours in milwaukee after practice ends until we cash out? that was rhetorical.

Did someone say cocktail wiener? Yes I will be on rubber tires but I have another car that is setup with your last setup that you posted in the Shuie thread and its was very good at IRP on Jack so I might get to try it out this weekend as well and I will let you know how it works. When are you and the wiener factory going to be blowing the town....err I mean blowing into town? Iím not sure if he will be open late or not....I think it was something like 7pm was closing time on that Saturday.

friday night is the plan. get some "sleep" and be ready to go at 9 sharp.

cool. at least i'll have a backup setup, i guess. this one that i've been going nuts about is way better here. until then, my stock ec car was always a tenth or two behind at home. which one did you use? the anti-dive one?

Awesome....Brad and I will be up there friday....Im sure some of the Peggy March gang will make it up there on friday as well.

I ran the one with the anti-dive in the front....it was really good.....like sickly good....I just needed to get back to the foam tire feel From outside mod rubber to inside and foams is a big jump in the way the cars drve.

i bet. i was weirded out when i began to drive my car after a day of just watching/pitting chicky's nitro race.

good that that setup is good out there. i am afraid this latest one will be too soft for anywhere but here. low rear roll centers hold up good here because the cars are so twitchy and lack rear grip. i think it's because the pile is gone from our carpet. regardless, i am emotionally prepared for the moment where my ec car ends up in the pits over by the sweeper.

Well when and if your car turns into a Joey Chitwood stunt machine start back at that anti-dive setup and go from there.

See ya in 3 weeks.....
