agreed though..... I felt a lot better after lunch. I bet I could have done a lot better.

when is the next event? and I'll probably not be there :P. I want magnets made though!

and I thought it was going to be 60 degrees.....

i've got another event on sunday.
check this course out, the start is next to "the boxer" it starts out going SE



chicago boxes anyone??

let me ask you again, which car should i take? svt or zx3?

at my last event up in pocatello, i did pretty well. but i'm kinda bummed i waited for my last run to actually focus on putting an entire run together.
so i think that' what i'm going to try for all of my runs on sunday, put it all together. this is my second to last event, so i want to see what i've learned.

i'll take pointers??

nah, we've got one more event (two day at miller) not this weekend but next.
i'm getting KWs. should be low enough! although, my svt sits pretty damn low in the front right now.. i knocked my wheel well loose on sunday.

this sucks, i knew Gonzo would edge me out for ST.. w/ point drops he has the lead by TWO points.. w/o point drops i have him by 8 points haha. oh well, at least the better driver will win the class. i'm still fighting for top twenty in pax.. i'm sitting at 22nd. i believe if were to run hstock i could get in there. so i may be doing that since i already lost in ST.
