Who wants to have some fun and race at RPM??? Dewey can't go and I don't want to go solo. I'm keeping an eye out for deals....

Sounds like a lot of fun. There is also one of these indoor tracks in Roseville. I hear it is pretty reasonable.

The longer cart races are tough.

RPM has a night where they turn their two tracks into one and double the laps.

Well about half way through the race, unless you have been working out, your arms feel like they are about to explode.

No power steering and holding them in the turns at speed takes a lot of upper body strength.

Just my two cents. The shorter races are more fun...

All input is welcome, thanks Mateo. I have never been and always wanted to go. My friends are not interested and Dewey is out. So I figure I throw it out to you guys and see if anyone was interested.

Lonny I forgot all about that place! I remeber seeing them at the sprint car races. That would be awesome to do and I had a sprint car available, but Dewey said Id break too much crap and it cost too much!! LOL

Mateo... I woukd do the drags., but Im not fast enough on my clutch and my carb is craptastic. :-\

So the first thing is you used the term 'carb' in its singular form. The fix to that issue would be to change to the plural form and have 'carbs'. Cool

The rest is all in good fun and that is the point. No need to break the daily driver...

LOL. Yes I know...I keep hearing to change to dual carbs. We will cross that bridge when I rebuild the motor. I like stock, but understand dual carb too. Not sure which route we will go..... Yet. Very Happy
