I have not been able to make it out to the track yet, hopefully take the Jr, Sr and 160 out today or tomorrow.  From what I have heard, Sr Honda axle gear is like 2-3 teeth less than beforeā€¦

Wifes picking up the rubber now so I can set ride heights and scale later, Ill update you more when and if we get out.


This rushing around crap is for the birds!!!  LOL

Eric,

You need to start your lt 160 off with 37 35 but everyone else should start with about 37 28 or 37 29. Smiley

Are you bringing your LA this weekend?

Dale,   Thanks for the gears....I knew I could count on you to give me a straight answer.

Yes I will have my LT AA with me and look forward to flying around the new Columbus pavement.

Do you know of anyone that has been on the track with a LT WF yet? How did that go if you do? They were fine in Tampa....no issues.

Eric,  I do but think you are pulling our legs.  You know we did see the Tampa Race thanks to USAC filming.  Congrats to you and your son.  Keep up the good work.  Glad our midwest kids did well hopefully next year more can get down there.

See everyone this weekend and good luck to all.  Anxious to see how the soft walls hold up.

Anyone needing us to run and get anything for any of you let us know and we will be coming back in Sunday Morning early if anyone needs ice or whatever.  Just ask for the Longbrake Grandparents.
Now if the darn weather will just be good to us then we will be all set.

Quite talking and get those .25 midgets set up right! Grin
