Should we all take bets on how many speeding tickets he'll get along the way? How many times he takes a wrong turn? And how many empty pop bottles are in the car at the end of the trip?

I say about 5 vault 20 oz bottles... and one speeding ticket although he did buy a new radar detector of course that's after I got my ticket driving his car up to the sizzler. wrong turns might be harder it's 40 for like 1700 miles then north to vegas. if he misses a turn he's in trouble.... he said he would pipe in when he got to Albuquerque unless he takes a right turn there!

I'm in amarillo dirla you need to go back to school and learn cities and states.

I've been emptying my drinks at every gas stop but there are currently 4 bottles in the car LOL

no tickets as of yet and I'm 952 miles into the trip about 56 miles past halfway I'll be in vegas tomorrow night.

subaru outbacks need a little more HP but it did do great in the rain couldn't hardly break it loose with the 4wd and the lights can blind people LOL

I've verified 115 mph but couldn't find a stretch to hit the 130 though w/o officers present LOL

it is 40west all the way no wrong turns yet.

yes the "LA" branch of Thunder RC will be at the classicalthought I haven't gotten seaball to confirm but I need to figure out if my setup for hi traction works for my T2 as vegas suked royally and it was a slip and slide. I don't want to change the setup and it will probably be the last race I run my T2 before snowbirds. but I need to redeem myself with Magoo as he completely killed me at vegas. so the match is on.
