With the same set up I went 42 with we were barely getting 41... Everyones lap times are much slower, Both days I raced the track was much cooler. I think the fastest run over the last few weeks there I had a 41 4:02... lap times were 5.8 to 6.0... most of the other guys who run 41's were at 40's.

Thanks for the update.
That is how it was the last time i raced as well. I couldnt get a 42 to save my life. I think I went a 41 4:01 or 02 with a bobble here and there to TQ.
It seemed everyone was a lap off.

Are you racing the big race next week?
I cant make it this Saturday but will be there next weekend for the big race.
Anyone else coming from your way?
I heard Tony had Vicky at the track practicing.

Thanks for the update.

I never had a chance to race Saturday but practiced Friday.
Car was slow. Best i could manage was a 40 lap run.
I think my 3 year old Quantum has finally given up on me.
I was starting off with 5.8's and ending on 6.1's if i hit my line.
I am gonna try a newer speedo and see what happens.

See ya Saturday

I dont know if maybe the rain washed all the compound off and the track was too "Green" as they call it or what. I know 19T only went 45 and Mod 49 laps.
I think Garey TQ'd stock, not sure what he ran.
I blew off the track real good with the leaf blower so everything was clean. Car wasn't coming off dirty either.

Every practice run I made the car seemed ballistic the first 6-10 laps then it was like I deployed a parachute. The guy clocking me kept asking me why the car was falling off so fast....wish I had an answer for him, LOL

Motor was not getting hot either as it was only about 70 degrees Friday.
I am stumped.

I hope the rain holds off for us. 30-40% chance Friday and Saturday right now.

What class is Vicky running?

Wayne,
Yes I will be there hopefully Friday around 11:00 or so.
I think my pan car is all ready to go but my Bombers car needs some work, LOL

I am getting Digital Phone installed early in the morning and plan to come over to the track after that.

When are you coming down?

You know what I got to thinking and it seemed everyone started to get slow out there when Walt put the sod in the turns.

Last year the same thing happened. We were all running like 41 4:00's and then later in the summer it was tough to run a slow 41 after the sod was put in.

I noticed after every practice run my car had a dust film all over the car.
Back when we were running 42's the car did not come off the track nearly as dirty/dusty.

I think it's hurting the traction.
