That yellow car almost got me!
Getting there finally - so I was TXTing @402BOSSMAN after the race - it won't rev over 6500 - lots of passes 6500 is all it'll turn - think its the bigger rings this year? He comes back "What's the rev limiter set on?"
DOH!!!!!!!! Damn it all! When I borrowed Russ stocker 392 I set it on 6500.
Face palm moments are easier to swallow when it's an easy fix. Great to see Q&D coming around for you! Been a long row to hoe for you.
I feel for you, I like it better when I figure out what stupid crap I’m doing, and nobody’s around to witness.
If I only talked about the stuff I didn’t screw up, I wouldn’t have anything to say
Well I'm tired of just showing up!!
Making wholesale changes!!
Love this car, I know you will make it Great!
I know what you mean. We're taking 2 races off to re-group. Be back at Lyons. I'm tired of being the floating bye-run!
I for one am glad you are showing up! I see your passes from the pits and it looks like its flying. What are you changing?
Breakage limited? Or speed limited?
Let me count the ways....tires, gear, springs, front axle, maybe intake, almost everything but the color!!
I think he's finding out what we all have--It ain't easy. It ain't easy, but well worth it!
Here's the Piedmont and Knoxville races :
Thx Tony, for posting this. You were looking good , much better than any previous races.
Congrats on the win bro!!! Any win is a good win!! Me and you need a few more of those!
I heard something about a "nutsy pass" award in Myrtle Bch. Saturday. Care to elaborate?
Seriously not a trophy to shoot for - shows a lack of preparation - but I've only had 3 vacation days so far in 2018 and things fall behind. Great time great race!
Videos no worky Tony
That's the Nuttiest pass of the day. Well deserved.Snowman
Videos worked for me.
GREAT to see DOG TAGS hanging from your mirror. Semper Fi.
Hmmm you might go to Youtube directly and look me up - John Doe - none of the younger crowd gets that.
Hell yeah - those are my Dad's Navy tags but Semper Fi is right - I met a Navy Corpsman at the track - asked if he would hold my nuts for old time sake - damn jarheads
That lane was slick last year as well!! Cost a few people in eliminations including me!! Nice save
Thanks for sharing, never get tired looking at Samantha pics! Oh and congrats on your 'major' award Carp.
