OK, that would be crazy, but so darn cool...




If anyone is interested... I added some pics to the wheel thread. A little better, but the shadows are still long, just in the other direction. But at least I'm more awake now

Were you looking to do a swap (read: did you post it somewhere), or was it completely unsolicited.

If you did post about it somewhere, then I'd say that it may be okay. I know my first post on this forum was with regard to a part for sale.

If it was unsolicited, then you can either: a) disregard it; b) get more info from him; or c) tell him you have no intent in doing a swap.

Looks like you had a great time.


Here is what my evening was like....

http://forums.bradbarnett.net/showthread.php?p=5547512

Didn't run the car (first freeway trip > 80mph and the rears need to be re-balanced...), just checked it out. For $10 bucks it was pretty cool. Next time I'll have to get there earlier to get better pics.

I talked to both tom281 and psracer and they say the M&H tire on 17s are the ones to beat right now... I'll have to find the thread but there is a nice tire discussion in it, might be tom's "new personal record" thread or my whipple thread.

I almost called you. The track seem MUCH better than Qualcomm and the whole set up looks really, really well done.

Cheater Slicks or DRs, helmet and fire jacket and I'm racing, but that won't happen right away. Gotta spend on a couple other things first. I'm thinking at the very least a couple of us should go out there just to shoot the feces and watch. Heck for 10 bucks you can't beat it with a stick.

If you're ever up here on a Thursday we gotta go. Also they're running once a month on Sundays from Apr 20 to Aug ....something. We could do that too !!!!

Let me know what time you guys are meeting up at Kings Head. I probably won't be able to leave the studio until 6:00.

18 hours in the plant and all I saw was a measly 2600 packs.... About a 1/2 hours worth of production. Man I'm tired.
I will do my best to be there tomorrow night but this instal has gone bad from the time I walked in the door. Jed, I'll giv you a call after lunch (is that ok?) to let you know what is going on in my world.
