Default Sac peeps: It's time - Sac Raceway 2/2

Season opener for the wednesday night drags. Earlier than previous years, hopefully the crowds will be small to start.

Weather looks to be decent at least thru tuesday, cool temps, even on winter gas my car is happy.
So far I've got one of the non-TB local's to run his WWD, I'm running the wagon. Who else is in? Got a week to prep whatever needs prep.

Gates at 4, time trials 5-7, brackets 7-10.
$15 to run, $7 to watch
Helmets required for 13.99 and faster (yes, I'm taking mine)
110* available out there if you have a container to transport to your car and have no cat.

The list so far:
Gary
Matt (non-TB'er)
John - slo854t

I don't suppose they have loaner helmets there...? I really want to run, but a helmet is not in the budget just yet...

Maybe next time...

no they don't have helmets.

PS- You need to be muffled and slicks aren't allowed.

Actually, they DO have a few loaner helmets as of my last visit out there.

You have something fast enough to run 13's in?

Possibly a small dip into the 12s if I can get it to hook up and I can shift it right...

Since I've only owned it for a bit over a month, I doubt it though.

Never seen or heard of that.

I've lent mine out more than once to friends though.

If I can't fit them over the RX-7 brakes (still not sure if they will clear) I might be getting different wheels sooner than later... So those may be up for grabs soon...

They don't fit in the trunk though

I have some Propus Cs that'll clear RX7 brakes (but then again, there's no reason why Eiker/Polaris won't clear RX7 brakes either). You know you liked those wheels that I have on my 142.


Small trunk and might dip into the 12s? Must be a GM.

My understanding is that real Polaris need a 5mm spacer to clear. Eikers are .5" wider though, so I am not sure if that changes anything. Thems some pretty dern beefy brakes. I'll be trying it out fairly soon though. I have my fingers crossed.

*sigh* Yeah Logan, it's gotten bad over the past couple years. I'm pretty friggin inactive, compared to a few years back. The signal/noise ratio here isn't what it used to be.
