Get out and get racing. Hangin' out with the other racers is awesome. My buddy Steve with the turbo'd Hayabusa has his bike tore down...looks like the paint is stripped as well. Sent me a pic. I need to drop by and see what more cool guy stuff he's doing for it this year. As for my R1, it blew a fork seal the day I had it out. I took them out and had the seals and bushings changed. They're back in and it's ready to go. Gotta pick up a smaller front sprocket here in town. Gonna buy a new jacket and pants and gloves. I'm using my race shoes I used with the Buick. I'm geared for May 1st!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Jeremy...order a weather station...you're gonna need it to keep it on its dial. The NA cars don't move around much on temp/humidity changes. But IC cars...oh boy!!! Scoob kept notes on what the car would do on temp/humidity changes...so he got good on keeping the dial close. He'd add/subtract high gear fuel from run to run and leave on the exact RPM each time. I'd see guys run on their exact dial...and I'd just shake my head.
