I would go to the mora one even if I didnt have a sled. 27 degrees and should be some good sleds.

al did you hear from rick s. or buck fifty if they are comeing up? I might stop in at ricks on weds. for a little bs session.

I moved up to improved stock so I will be lucky to be in fourth or fifth place. but a pump gas sled with a 250 lb driver and no warm up stand getting even close to the other sleds is good in my book.

Rick is trying to get ready. Buck Fifty has an engine in pieces waiting ofr a rotary shaft. Hey think positive, if don't try, you will never win....There are usually stands at the line you can borrow.

oh no i have a stand. I might use it in fact I probably should use it. I might need everything I can to make consistant runs.

I finally learned something that I had been telling others. gear tall for speed. so I always geared a little over what I wanted to get. basically i had been trying to get over 90% through the clutches. after looking back in my notes over the years and talking to a lot of other racers. I am way under geared. that might explain the "glass cieling" I would keep hitting. I would go up one tooth and gain a little bit of speed with some tunning. but I never attributed the speed to gearing. but everytime I went up in gear I eventually went up in speed. I dont know how i didnt see this sooner.
I am going to try a 1.44 ratio this weekend and see what happens. I took out 48 pics since with my wieght on the seat traction will be more than enough. I might take out another 48 after this weekend.

Sounds like a lot of guys heading up to Hackensack. Many are planning to head to Mora Sunday.

I hope rick, dan and chris get the big sleds there. it is a lot more fun to see big sleds go than a bunch of stock/ improved stock sleds.

I have a feeling Knife lake will be packed because rush was cancelled so this will be the first local run I hope parking will not be a issue because they are not letting anybody park on the lake.
