Good to hear you are still around, and hope to see you at the new track and bring your sons to as everyone is welcome. Remind your son about the race he and i almost won. As Agent 86 would say... missed it by that much... beat by Van's wife!!!!!
Hi, Tim nice to hear from you. I have been away for some time now in the slotting scene, and will return soon, not to sure when. I will come to the new shop when its up and running, that's for sure. Pick up a new racer or something. Later
Keep in mind that most race tracks do have guard rails, tire walls and fences. They found many years ago that it was neccesary for the new drivers (DRAG RACERS included) to have these barriers so that they could find their way around the track and not get lost. This was before GPS systems, but i didn't notice one installed in your car.
If you don't believe me just ask Serge... remember when he put his car through the wall... he had reverted back to a DRAG RACER!!!!
Every DP at the Six Hours at the Glen (July1) had a map of the track taped to the steering wheel. So much for only "Drag" racers needing such help.
Glad to see ya got your "Big" car out Ronnie
For now I am having too much fun just driving the car around. I am far too old to become a Formula 1 Driver but I will never be too old to feel like one. The car is awesome for that.
I am short shifting, and basically just babying the car around TMP. It is really nice there, very open track and almost nothing to hit if I manage somehow to get it wrong. Still quite technical though. Turn 2 and 3 will take me a while to get right.
I think we are going to go out Friday during the Day. There is a 1-9pm session. I still have yet to turn the GPS on to give me any laptimes. I am going to bring lots of Fuel this time. I ran out on the Main Straight Last Wed night! Managed to turn it off behind the Wall before turn 1. Phew!
Shop wise still not much new Guys. Still Painting it White. Poo Poo Brown is hard to cover.
A long overdue update. The Store is coming along nicely. I got the sales area done last week.
I am also Very proud to say that I have the Track design finalized. It is looking REALLY good! 5 Lanes of racing action! I didn't thing I could fit enough track in the 5 Lane format but I DID!!
I am Very excited to race on this one. We will be going with Non-Magnetized Braid for this one as well. Spare no expense, this track will be even better than the last!!! We will need 4 Marshals on this track but we almost always have 9 guys out anyways.
I would post the design here but I want it to be a surprise, trust me, it will be worth the wait. I am starting on the track next week.
Looking forward to the Best Slot Racing Season yet!
