Had to bring this back up. This could turn into a great race and want everyone to see it. Capped tires and FAST. Anyone know for sure yet? I plan on going. 19turn more than likely.

Count me in. I've got 2 cars, and I think I have someone to run the other car, but It's about 50/50 on that. 19 turn of course.


Also, this is the last practice Tues night before the race. If you're planning on racing and haven't run on capped tires before, you should try to make it. We'll be there about 6:00 tomorrow.

Cool man I'll see you there -

By the way, Greens and Blues seem to be the tires. I've tried a lot of other combinations.

For the race Saturday, you don't have to have capped tires. Foams work well out there. For those of you that want to race, and don't have caps, bring your foams out there and race.

We had an awesome practice last night. Looks like Jamie got his car hooked up pretty good.
Looks like we're shooting for 6.4 sec laps in 19t. Maybe we'll get there Saturday.

Also before I forget what is the Address to the place? And am I correct in assuming power is there? Thanks

Is this the website for the correct place?
www.funtymepark.com
Yeah thats the place. Funtyme west. The track is behind the "can am karts" You need to drive into a field drive immedialtely east of Funtyme to get back there. You'll see where people have been driving.

6295 E. Saginaw Hwy
Grand Ledge, MI 48837

And, no there is no power or tables

Its really not that bad, lots of people have generators. I don't have one and I get by. For the practice nights, we can use the power, but for racig, theres only one outlet and I'm sure nick wont want us to use it he'll have the computer on it.

AHAHAHAH. Brian, Mod would be a riot out there. The track is huge. 19 turn alone is fast. The cars just WHINE down the back straight. It is a great sound. Need alny help with the car just ask.. The last turn is a hard one to get setup for. The cars love to push there.

I think I can figure out a setup. After all you only need to turn left. hahahaha All I need to figure out is power.

Brian, use the #3 rear ride height spacers and go from there. The track has a couple big bumps
