1.64 so far with a 3200 stall / 100 shot. nothing special just my best. my setup is a little more aggressive now. should be able to do better.

haha, hes on a local board. its a notch back.

he drove to an NMRA race, entered and won wild street on 17's .

as he was disassembling his trophy, a track official comes over and asks "why dont you just put it in your trailor?" he says, "i dont have one, i drove this here from md." needless to say, the guy was speechless.
