          Race Date will be September 1st.

          The cars are sill resting comfortable in their packaging. I've been over at the PSSRA's newest routed track at Festers for a system check today with some of the usual suspects. We may want to add this fantastic track to our rotation next year.

          I expect to get the cars opened up tomorrow for some glamor pictures on the track. I'll do a quick shakedown of the cars during the week for driving impressions and the race will be held next Saturday.

          Good luck to all!

            Shakedown results

            I had the opportunity to open the cars up, and check for any problems, give the tires a quick clean and run the cars for a minute each. We are going to have a great race on Saturday. In my driving impressions I didn't want to keep saying that the cars were smooth. Most were very smooth and only if the car differed from that did I mention it. The bar was raised yet again by the field this year.
            Congratulations to all of the entrants.



            4.272 Quick-great brakes-nervous on the limit-feels like could bite at any time



            4.320 Great brakes-low gearing makes it difficult to get off corners smoothly



            4.352 Super smooth-quiet-well balanced-nice car



            4.368 Very fast-tall gearing makes for a smooth car here-easy to see why this one is running toward the top



            4.384 Well balanced-forgiving-very quick



            4.467 Easy to drive-well balanced-good grip



            4.480 Great brakes-geared for Daytona and this is Lime Rock-hard to hang on to



            4.496 Takes power easily off corners-tall gearing is a hand full here



            4.528 Fine line between too much motor & too tall gear for this track-always on the edge



            4.544 Good grip going into corners-loose off them- point and shoot car here



            4.560 Soft motor/chassis setup like the power on early-easy car to drive



            4.561 Chatters-loose off corners-good brakes



            4.571 Chatters-won't take power in corners-point and shoot here



            4.574 Loose on corner entry-great grip on exit-good brakes



            4.578 Well balanced-could use more motor/gear here



            4.592 Good balance-loose body screws slows direction changes-nice car



            4.593 Feels heavy in the front-weak brakes



            4.672 Loose off corners-High tailed cars seem loose here



            4.688 Noisy-rattles-tall gearing makes difficult to keep grip-twitchy



            4.704 Rattles-pod too loose for my track-nervous



            4.720 Doesn't like power mid corner-High tail cars seem loose here?



            4.736 Point and shoot-doesn't like power early in corners



            4.768 Needs more motor/gearing here-excessive body float makes car loose



            7.984 Tire choice offers no grip here-motor/gearing too aggressive for my track-tough combination

                  Your car is really quick here, keeping a driver on his toes.

                  Good luck Saturday

                        WTFrig? From top 5 most places to bottom 5 here? Guess my C1's don't like the surface!

                        Have a great race.
