Biscuit and I just ran the glue in on the new Race Place track. It will be ready to go Saturday.

The track is so fun.

Fast lap of the night is a 4.151 on green. Second fastest 4.171 on orange.


Test, test, test and go test some more.
You're never fast enough!!! 💯

Luck is the residue of design.

I never did measure.

My good test car had. 040" on it. I'm definitely dropping it to .035-.030" ballpark.

Rick,

 

Did you click the link in the first post? If you had, you would have seen a picture.

 

You're not one of this computer-challenged old guys, are you? LOL...

The format for this months race at Son of Holly Hell will be qualifying for can am to seed the mains.

Each main will be 4 minutes on 4 lanes with total laps counting as finishing position.

F1 will be seeded by can am finishing position.

Since this is the first race we will only run 4 minutes heats, hopefully we can go to 6 minute heats at the next race as people get used to the track.

Will will have practice on race day done as they do at the big races so everyone gets track time.

Track is pretty cool and hard. Lol.

I found the turn right before the lead-on going into the bank real tough.

It's challenging but so fun.
Test, test, test and go test some more.
