Chet and I got back around 2 this morning and you would think he was 10 again on our roadtrip as I had to do all the driving. Chet the hammer broke 3 arms, it's a good thing they were very friendly in Columbus at the track as everyone helped with spare parts. It was a little tricky mastering the 4 foot high jump. I won the mod B main and Chet won the one heat of stock buggy and finished 5th in A main mod buggy. They have a great setup down there minimal rent as it's in the unused fairgrounds and they only heat it on the weekend. It was a great time with really nice people and we look forward to racing there in Jan.

Fred, congratulations!

Is that the same layout that will be using in January?

What are the front and rear tires of choice?

Which setup was working the best?

This will not the same layout. The Jan. track is supposed to have a 180' straight and is going to be in a bigger barn. So plan on taking warm boots and clothes, I am sure it's not going to be too toasty in Jan. The good thing about the dirt is that one set of tires will last for the whole week. They use worn out pink taper pins in the rear and worn out pink or m3, 4 ribs up front. Start at 2 in the rears with 25 wt and 35 up front with number 1. The fast guys were using traction compound a 1/2 hour before they race.

The dirt took some time to get use too. Alot more traction then we're use to at sid's. So you don't drift nearly as much into the corners. I was real surprized with the slicks I made. I ran them in practice and they didn't work all that bad. The front slicks I made where old m3 edge that I made alot softer. I wasn't able to use them becasue they had to much traction. I ask I guy there and the dirt they use is 100% topsoil. Its crazy how much different U.S and Can. topsoil is!
