Man I want to go really bad but I have a 4 year old little girl and giving her a great Xmas is more important to me than harrassing TK. There will be other events....other times.

Thanks Jr. I'll have my new Brahma HP after Christmas and I will be at Horsham not long after I get it. I'll also be ordering the Schumacher MI2EC, Carpet around the same time. As long as I can get the car setup right, I'll be giving the whooping more than receiving it

Talk to U later Barry and I'll be seeing U soon.

Bob

Fred is expecting his car around the 16th or so. It looks like Schumacher finally admitted their cars don't work on carpet and made a carpet car. YAY I have to wait til Jan before ordering my kit. Then I gotta convince Jason to make me a chassis for it. First I have to get him to make my secret squirrel shock towers for my TC4 Oh and bring the Big Sticks when you come to Horsham....even the slow guys there are fast. I will be getting 4 packs and some motors, heh heh heh

Believe me Bob I remember how fast the racers are at Horsham. I'll be as ready as I can be. I'm just hoping I don't mess up on Setup.

See U then.

Thats the easy part. Latif and Fred will both be there to help you with that. I will tell you that Parma tires seem to be more consistant there. Wraps are fast but not consistant. grab 2 sets of cyans and 2 sets of magentas. The track does have a truer there in case you cant find one. Schreff starts off around 55.5 mm I usually try to start around 57.5 just to get that couple extra practice runs. even at 55.5 you will still get 2 weekends out of the tirs. I think my tires are about 54.3 right now

man for the better part of 3 years Fred and I were doing R&D for Mission and MI2 setups on Carpet...know what happened. I bought a BMITC4. The car just doesnt flow right on carpet Just after I sold my MI2 Jason released a BMI kit that helped but it's still not the same. Now I can throw my car down on any track and all I really have to do is either make the car rotate more or less. With the Schuie you were so out to lunch you had to spend your whole day getting in the ball park while everyone else was spending their day fine tuning and getting faster. It was rough.

Yes Bob, you are correct... it was great on the straight, but geeze, making the thing turn was a chore.. and starting to enter the sweeper halfway down the straight at birds isnt a good solution.. lol we were quite a ways off by the end of the week... out to breakfast, lunch and dinner i'd say... but we had a good chik-fil-a lunch... lol I had the BMI kit, wasnt bad on Day 1, i actually think i was in the upper C main in 19t and lower C main in mod... then came the traction.. I did learn a really good lesson though from a wise man... 'if you arent there on day one, pack your sh*t and head to the bar'....
