If there's any chance I can afford an august round of racing, it would probably be at summit with CCS. Although I would lime to get in a VIR round this year, preferably with CCS.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

I know Im slow and dont have any skills but I would be willing to do the endurance thing. Me and Rich could team up and share his bike. We are about the same weight. I find that more interesting than the short sprints where I suck and would be a back marker. Hmmmm.

I think craftsman has had both USA and china stuff for awhile. I didn't click article. All China now?

Two hours is a long stint of an endurance race maybe . Nit what I meant though. Meant it is a glorified practice. Like weras solo20s were/are.

I thought you were saying there was a reason not to go to vir in Aug like weather or something. I was thinking has to be better than nola in July lol

I'm betting you and Rich are a good 40 pounds different in weight. And you think you'd be faster over a longer distance than a shorter one? Huh?

Yeah, our 2 days at VIR were 96 and 98 degrees, and I still managed to pass Broome on the brakes, so I'm not worried about the heat

I'm surprised you didn't know that.I don't think its all their stuff though.I've actually have been buying Kobalt tools which were previously made by Snap on,they are just as good a quality as Craftsman or better but a lot cheaper.

Re: Northeast Trackwhores: 7 month thread v3

We could just pool a little money together and pick up some beater SV. Leave it with me over the winter and we'll have a team bike ready for spring

Absolutely all mental. I remember winning those races and how focused I was. I will never forget that.

Well Chris also claims he was running on only 2 of 3 cylinders that day, I think Lora had a higher top speed at the kink on the R6

That's usually what I do, too. Sit it next to my gear in my attic for the winter.
