So, at my house again. I'll have the same basic setup but try to lengthen the straight by one tile per Hanks request.

me too, see you guys there!:D. I'd like to try a couple of my mod cars in the qualifiers, especially the AWD. It doesn't get much use

Hey guys, tomorrow is on but my car got totaled so I'm desparately trying to close a deal on a car so I would like to try and end by 3 if we can to give me time to get out to a dealer. My wife is tired of me sharing her car. :)

I'm currently in SC, so hopefully, if I leave by 6AM, I can get there by 11AM. Russ, I might have a car I can sell you;)

Just saw this message. Yeah, maybe a nice van if you have one. :) I did pick up my Xterra today. It was worth the drive down though as the Metallic Blue looks spectacular. I also managed to get a 7 year 100k mile bumber to bumber warranty on it for next to nothing. Normally I avoid stuff like that but they made it too cheap to pass up. One single claim on it will easily pay it back.

Thanks for coming today guys. Hopefully I can get some time to upgrade my fets but mainly I just need more practice than anything. In any case, it was a good way to relax me a little from the stress of the forced car hunt this week.

russ the fets are not holding you back, I have 3010sx1 on all my cars. speed comes from tire,good batteries and a clean motor and bearings. lap times come from not hitting the walls, That takes getting the car balanced so it is consistant. tires have the biggest effect on balance. my favorite rear tire is th reflex racing tire, second to date hase been pn8. I have not tried pn6s yet. I have alot of front tires I have played with and its the first thing I grab when the balance is off.
I like pn15s with the reflex rear tire, I was on pn20,18s with pn8 tires
in order of most to least front grip I have pn15s, atomic20s,3racing,pn18s,pn20s,kyosho20s.

Glad I was able to give hank a battle again today, that was fun swapping the lead in the main. Sorry I didnt get into a good focus for ya in mod.

Ps I feel like I am going to give birth today after eating foga de chou last night. I ate filet, bacon filet , 2 sirloins , ribeeye, some other specialty beef,sausage, chicken, bacon wrapped chicken, baby back pork rib. The price was not as bad as I expected $47 per person. and is only 30 for lunch. I Have eaten at Fire De Brazil in alpharetta on winword before and it is really good also.

Good racing again guys! Looks like I'll have to get a better setup for my stock car, I may start using wides on the rear instead of narrows.
