Re: NJ who's in?

You didn't notice the trailer came off the second it happened? I don't know what magical tow vehicle you use, but it's completely obvious when there is a trailer hooked to our truck and when there is not.

You're in for a fun friday trying to get ready. Go download the tech sheet and go through it several times so you know what you're currently failing tech for. Based on your other thread you have a long way to go. Good luck.

We also run a saab (that's what's in your picture right?), but it's a hair newer. We'll be camped out in front of the main garages.

ATTENTION: Testing at NJ track before our race!!
Sign up and pay $300 by May 9 or pay an extra $50 after May 9.  You can get to the web site via the Lemons website for that race.

Looks like an open track 9a-12noon, and 1p-5p

We are going to arrive Thursday pm to register and go through the Practice Tech held by the track.

Has anyone heard which judges will be out to NJ?  I really hope Steve will be out again as I really like my team to attend his Friday night rookie talk.

Really going to trust weather projections over a week out?  More than 4-5 days out is beyond the range of predictability models.

Mike, you've just saved me $50! In gratitude I will drink more of your vodka smile

Smaller attention: a lot of Radioshack stores are 50-90% everything these days, just got myself a bunch of cool toggle switches at 90% off.

Miata seems to be ready.

I'll be there, without a car, Friday night till Saturday, with some, um, cutting tools and what not. Actually, tubing notcher and grinding tools and welding mask. Will weld your failed cages for beer as long as you can get your hands on somebody's welder (mine's 220V so I can't use it at the track).

Re: NJ who's in?

I love the above ecu mount. Lol.

Does anyone know if they sell rollcage padding at njmp's little "racer store" at thunderbolt? I think I saw in the rule book no pool noodles and no pipe insulation. No vendors can get me the roll cage padding before we load up and head to njmp. Ideas?

Re: NJ who's in?

And what the heck is paddock rat? Hehe I noticed the thing under my name changed from rookie lemon or something's g like that I don't remember to paddock rat

Re: NJ who's in?

I still pay my  dues. Local union Steamfitter 420 dues. Current card holder.  Making me not a rat.

When I hear rat.... I think of non union workers

Re: NJ who's in?

the shop won't. well maybe, but don't count on it.

summit racing will ship to the track. Order some and have them ship there to pickup when you get there. The track might charge like $5-10 for doing it. I've done that before when I needed new oil lines last second.

Edit: that paddock rat thing is related to your post count. as it goes up you get different titles.

Not that I like to promote this, but Amazon... They have plenty of padding and if you have a prime account some can be delivered to you tomorrow.

"roll bar padding" is what i searched.

Amazon works too. But summit ships almost as fast.

The second link is what you want anywhere your head could hit. You'll pass with the first, but it isn't the right stuff.

Re: NJ who's in?

FYI...NJMP is doing drop off catering this year.  Breakfast and platters in the pm.  Check the paddock drop off link.

I don't think they've done this in the past, but it beats driving back into town and I know not everyone goes cookout style.

They offer it every year, you just have to contact the track.  I looked into it last year, but the price didn't make sense to us.  Better to give money and sides to one of the amazing race chefs and join their buffet.

Re: NJ who's in?

The catering looks to make sense if you have a ton of people with you. But since they claim each feeds 12-15, and we're bringing 5....

Re: NJ who's in?

I've seen weather reports go both ways for this weekend, but they seem to be erring on the side of rain.  On a scale of 1 to Titanic survivor, how wet does a driver get in a good rain on track?

Re: NJ who's in?

if you're not in a convertible it's not terrible. Window will be down so that will not help you, but you shouldn't get out looking like a drowned rat.
