The impressive thing to me is how many vehicles ran the full 20 min. 5 of 7 buggies (Justin broke a bearing right at the beginning), and 3 of 7 trucks (Randy ran out of gas, so he was still tech. running and Rodney's wheel broke so he was running also). That shows good setup and prep work!!

i didnt realize i was up that much on chris and dave. i must have had tunnel vision.
just so everyone will know, trophys 1-4 in a-main 1-2 in b-main.
i think this gives everyone a chance to take something home.
i will let everyone vote on how long the main will be.
but not you chris, no 2 hour main!!!!

This sounds like fun Scott --- looking forward to Sunday -- again thanks for your offer to help.

Hey Joe --- are you going to come up for the race?

Just so y'all know - Manders won't be racing this weekend or the next 4 or 5 for that matter -- she has several band competitions and some church stuff going on every weekend. SO -- I guess that takes some pressure off of you Dave!!!

Rodney -- where are you?

Scott - you ran 22 - 23 sec laps for just about the whole race (except when pitting), even some 21 sec laps. You were CRAZY consistent. Did you pit 4 times? There were 4 laps in the 27 - 30 sec range. ALL other laps were 24 and under (mostly under)!!!

Joel - My wife is on call this weekend, so I need to stick around Amherst in case I have to watch the little one. Thanks for the invite though!! I am hoping to make it to Mikes on Sunday (if Sharon doesn't get called in) to the CVRC race.

I will get some copies of the race results to Stampy so you guys can check them out.

of me.i know im not fast so i have to be consistent. thanks for the compliment.
joe this sunday race was spur of the moment.i thought you already had plans with your guys.

Scott call my dad and tell him about the race on Sunday. I might see you guys there

I should have my crono back the heck with the Mach 26. I do not get any gas mileage and not enough power.

Stampy do you know about the gears for my Mammoth ST.

I just re-read the stats that Joe posted here and Scott you were flying! Those are incredible times!

Rodney - you getting that buggy in shape to race on Sunday?

Matt -- what did you find out about your engine? Keep me posted.

Fast Eddie -- is that what happened to you -- you ran out of gas? I thought that the Mach did ok on fuel? Anyone else have problems with that engine? I think that that is what was on the Xray that Kevin let Manders run and she made it the full 20 minutes. I am curious because I have been looking at it as her next engine.

Eddie - the other Eddie - we have to get a name for you! Are you bringing out your buggy on Sunday to race? Ya gotta do it!! HEY -- how about Big Ed?

Yeah Joel I have the Mach .26 on the Xray. It still has a 1/4 tank of fuel left after the race and it was running a little rich.

Chris- I gave up drinking beer......................... just kidding, 30 minutes it is![sm=eek.gif]
