Famous Dave's sounds all right by me; but I don't know where it is! :D I'm hoping I'll get the VDS2 body before then; but I might wind up having to race an old beater body if it doesn't. :(

We will be running a Novice class this week. I'm bringing my step son and his friend, so there will be enough to run this class for sure. Hope Chase and Blake can make it this time... that'd make a good class. This would be a good time for anyone just starting out to come out and join the fun! I hope to see some new people there!

I think Chase has an early Baseball game this week, that could be good as we can stay the whole day assuming that it is early enough to get to the track before the start of racing.

were running an extra class now, so is that going to effect the time we start?

Nope, start time should stay the same. I'll try to get us started as close to 1 as possible.

Hey now... don't get too excited! You can only "advance" to the Novice class as soon as you can make one full lap without crashing! ;)

If you think you guys will be running late, give me a call and I'll go ahead and register you. E-mail me for my number.

Will you be racing too? Hope to have you out there with us!

Please post if the date changes for the next race.

Don't worry! You'll get it eventually... we'll just have to hook up a training transmitter (like an aircraft buddy box) to yours until you can make it on your own. :D

Sounds great! ...VW's are tough, you won't have any problems! ...unless of course your passengers get out of hand (don't go there Lamar)! :eek:

I'll see everyone at the track tomorrow. I'll be there around 11:00am to practice for a while. I won't be able to stay and race. I have plans at 3:00 so I'll probably leave around 1:30-2:00pm. While I'm there I'll try to get some good pictures of the racing.

If all goes as planned tonight, we will have the premiere of our new video tomorrow at the race!

I went to my sisters new house after racing, and I'm still here. Got me a nice little meal! Some salad, baby back ribs, and some Ice cream! :D I'm sure my ribs weren't as good as Famous Daves.

Anyways, had fun racing today, hopefully I can help my buddy find an MR-02 so he can race with us.

so when is the next race? next week , 2 weeks or 3 weeks?

alright, I think I might have driven from the shop nwithout my wallet. I've been looking around my sister's house for a good hour and haven't found anything. so the only thing I can think of is that I left it at the shop.

If it turns up, please let me know. thanks

Next race will be 2 weeks as scheduled. Miguel said he doesn't have to leave town on that date. Hope to see you there! ...and Blake too.

When I left, I cleaned up and scanned over everything. I'm pretty sure there was nothing there. You might call Miguel tomorrow if you don't find it. Hope it turns up.

Good turnout yesterday! It was a lot of fun! Good to see Danny and Keith, and Russ! Good job once again Hank (I'm going to have to get me some of that nuclear powered anti-freeze stuff that you were cheaten with! ;) ) Hope everyone had fun! Look for results to be posted tonight.

thanks! It took alot of testing, but mixing octane booster, anti-freeze, and some rubbing alcohol did the trick :p I'll get rid of both of those motors if anyones interested. $6 each :D

On a serious note, I'm not sure if I had that much more speed on the straight. I think I made up my times in the corners as I had less drag brake from what I can tell by watching. My car also seems a little more loose then others, as I could get the car to really fly through the chicane. I'm thinking thats where I gained most my time.

I'll have miguel order me a stock motor and I'll drill the hole in the end bell the day of the next race. Hopefully, that will clear my name! :p

As for the wallet issue, my brother had it the whole time! I was upset at first, but at least I didn't have to buy a new one and also good that I found out before I canceled my card.

Looks like its time for another track layout! If everyone agrees on something, I'm sure I can go after class and put it together some time this week.

Hey Patrick, I got all in a hurry and excited about my new Pro-Z and forgot to turn in my transponder. But I will be at the next race as long as nothing happens before then, so no worries I hope.

Hey no problem! We do hope you make it next time, but if not, I have plenty of rentals for now. Thanks for reminding me that you have one!
