Looks like St. Thomas is going to be open for racing on Saturday <img border="0" alt="[evil]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_devil.gif" />

Traction is gonna suck but it'll be fun to get out for a few shakedown passes with the changes to the car!!

Anyone else from the Ontario area heading out?

I hope the weather holds out for you Chris. It was fun reading about the progress you made. All the hard work paid off and now it's time to race. Good luck man.

Yep, with all the documentation and updates Chris has given us I alost feel like his brother. OK, maybe just a cousin.


Have fun and I hope the weather holds out for you.

haha thanks guys <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" /> I am hoping and praying the weather will hold.

If I run ANYTHING in the 11's@120-122mph with track conditions the way I am expecting and my rusty driving after all winter I'll be thrilled <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="gr_grin.gif" />

It'll be interesting to see how much the extra weight (about 120 pounds: cage, carpet, stock battery in rear) affects car in the 1/4.

I'll definitely post results when I get back
