Skip and Jimmy are coming up from the Carbondale area to run tonight. Hope to see a big turn out.

Announcements like that aren't the best way to ensure a good turnout . Just kidding....it'll be good to race with you again, Jimmy.

Larry,

I believe Drew and I are heading to the track around lunchtime today. I've been told that Skip will be up around mid day as well. That being said, I should be out of parts by approximately 4:15, but I still plan on staying to watch the racing . I don't expect I'll race Sat or Sun this weekend.

Yeah, but is he still wearing the cheerleader outfit?

Steve,

Lunchtime? Wow, wish I could get that much track time. Guess I'll have to put in a track here at work. Like that will happen!

When I come down I'll see if I can get Rick Worth to come along. Then it will really feel like a Master's heat for you old farts.

Good time last night. It seems everyone is getting faster and the competition is better every week.

It was funny seeing the plastic parts stack up (broken) in the middle of the table. Just at my table I think we went through 5 arms, 6 steering knuckles, 1 hinge pin and 2 wheels (I contributed to 3 of the knuckles). Good times.


Friday night seems to be the time to show up.

Hey Chris, when you post the results from this weekend can you post the detailed results with the lap times in the mains? It's an option in Autoscore.

Default track pics

Dave gave me some pics to host. I added them to the first post, so if someone is interested in the track they'll see it.

Great racing this weekend!

For all you micro dudes, your best bet for batteries is www.cheapbatterypacks.com This guy does a geat job! You can
get custom packs built to your specifications. (batt/layout/wire/s ize/connector type)
just check out the custom pack section. Plus he'll ship it priority mail / 2 day.
The last 2 packs I had built where just $36 total with the shipping! Just thought I'de past on the good deal!!!

Here's where some of us got our loose IB1200 cells a couple weeks ago. The place shipped them fast and the price was cheap. He currently has the newest version of the cells for $1.85. According to his discharge graph the new versions of the IB1200's out-perform the GP 1100's.

BTW, cool pics in the first post.

Chris,

Rumor has it that you might be arriving early this Friday....what's the ETA?

Larry, it looks like you're putting a serious whoop'n on the rest of the 18th sedan class....perhaps you need some sort of handicap system?
