I think Jack always opens the first Saturday following Mother's Day. I'm sure Jim Fulton would be able to tell you (www.fultonshobbies.com).

Jack has a great track and is a super guy. I can only get there once or twice per year but I have fun when I can make it. I'm sure he'll have a big weekly crowd - he's never hurting for racers.

Practice is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 30. According to the weather forecasts, however, it looks like that's going to be washed out by a full day of rain. Bummer!

Any chance Jack and the other guys would be willing to run on Sunday May 1 instead? The forecasts predict a cloudy but dry day on Sunday.

erock - thanks for the set-up help. Did you record the rollout that you used? Also, your set-up was for stock, correct?

the weather does'nt look too good for saturday, may be able to go Sunday, Shawn, Andy, Dusty, Kenny, Jack mostly ran green "L" on the left side and blue "S" on the right, when the sun went down they would sometimes switch to a green "S" on the right rear, the blue was a little firm when the track cooled off at night, Eric, why the green spring on right rear ?? does that help keep the left rear tire planted better, i've usually run same springs on both side shocks, Steve, Erics set-up is the right place to start, Shawn ran pretty much the same thing. if wether is bad Sunday too, i'm gonna try to make it up tuesday or wednesday, if you can go let me know, we'll meet and you can ride up with me, Brad.

Stock setup, yes

Rollout was about a 2.38-2.43 range with a Monster. If I had to run there again, being they are on caps (more efficient, less drag) I would run the Epic Roar stock and roll it out a couple teeth lower.

Pretty much everywhere I have been if you gear the Epic right it runs better than a Monster.

So - the weather still looks bad for Saturday. Is everyone planning on moving practice to Sunday instead? Is Jack OK with Sunday? What is the planned start time?

Sorry about all of the questions but I'm trying to make weekend plans.

Thanks!

Kevin
