    LOL well it definitely wasn't me coming in that kicked you out and the 10 member limit is long gone. I didn't come into the club until '97 and in '84 I would have been 3 years old so it definitely wasn't me.

    Jeff, welcome to the club. I'll be a little easier on you now that I know you're a Miler. Is Emily coming out? :D

    I will be there as I have Sat. afternoon patrol. My sidecar tire was rated to 130. At the Oct. meet I managed to run 130.224. Whether I will be allowed to run in Nov. is now being debated and I'm waiting to hear. One way or the other I'll be there.

    Therein lies the rub Lance. Its a "for racing purposes only" tire but its from kart. No speed rating per se but it a spec tire for a 125 shifter class. Min. weight for class is 360 lbs. But it only carries 49 lbs. on the sidecar. But with no speed rating the tech guys are in a bind. Hopefully will get a decision before the Nov. event. You don't want to ride it?? I thought you were a big hairy chested biker!!
     
  8. What size tire you runnin'?

    4.5-10 X 5 kart tire. But the world won't end if the SCTA say no. Plan B is already rattling around my head.

  16. I have the rear end changed out and the truck is in fine tune. Also got the F-350's problems all sorted out (for now anyway) We'll be out there Friday night. Pray for dry weather.

    WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND! Our bike sucked, nothing to impressive. Got to see alot of old friends and met some new ones. For us spoiled California boys 70 degrees is cold and long pants weather. It was in the 20's-40's all weekend, ouch. kaui got a record in the BREW 102 car, congrats. See you guys in May!
     
  27. One thing I noticed was not many people were compensating for the dense air. We were at 4000 + feet but the air density was at 1900. Needed a lot more fuel for the air. Our guys set a few records. SDRC!!
     

  28. I better start buying lottery tickets then to finish the car AND afford towing 1300+ miles one way!
     
  29. Here's the one from my truck.
