I used to win races all the time. Now I'm losing. This cannot be happening. I am forced to post this






If this seems like junk chat room journalism to poke fun at junk chat room journalism, it is :dance3:

I stopped at inorganic chemistry, but I can understand that black commutator deposits might be organic carbon  from a plasma brush arcing reaction.   Carbon is both a resistor and a conductor.  With enough voltage or wattage, that might be the point of shift.  


I never worry about 2 or 3 tenths a lap.  I have problems being on the same second.

Will there be a retaliatory strike on the guy/s that put Tim in this position? Tim as far as I know him has shown me to be an honorable man that sells a product that many people like. I do not know the other guys but from what I've read here on this blog is pretty bad. I'm new to this blog but have raced on and off since 1964 and have met some of both, Tim/JK is one of the good ones.

     Funny thing, when I was a kid, I thought "boycotting" was how guys slept in camp...no...really!  Anywho, cheers to Tim.  I think I'm a fairly good judge of character, and having had some good long conversations with him, I'm confident he is a good guy who is intent on doing the best he can to bring a good product to market for a good price.   What else is there?  Cheers to all, Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

I understand Ferrari is threatening to boycott F1 if they don't get motor rules they like. 


I guess we will see who shows up to race.

Everything will work itself out one way or another some will be happy some will not. Its pretty much the same no matter what the subject is.
