    Track took a hammering. So did the cars. They be nasty ruts. The race is going ahead next Saturday, but it's gonna be bumpy!

    Race today was awesome. 1morelap was 1-2 in the race, with Greg et. al. taking 1st. Our car got upgraded to 1morelap status this morning:

    #1morelapftw 89 is clearly the hardest to pass, you guys are quick and always in my line, had some good battles with ya. The track was cool, some big ruts that add good traction, but also risk knocking the tires off the rim if you hit them wrong. Fingers crossed for big snow this week.

    it's got ruts, but the snowbanks are still huge, so really not a big deal.
    They asked all the drivers afterwards what they thought about the track and if they want to race again next weekend, they all said yes loudly.

    Except for mechs02, he said no. something about family and kids, I didn't understand.

    I suspect family was being used as an excuse. my money says you guys scared him and now he thinks ice racing is too dangerous

    good to know bout the track. but seriously, like anyone would say no, not like any of the cars used are family heirlooms or sumshit!!!!

    Just be careful crossing the ruts because some look nearly 3" deep. You really want to hit them with your wheels straight, not drift over them. Lots of people were going off with flats. One car had two badly damaged tires.

    It's a good thing helmets are mandatory; I kept banging my head on things. The constant impacts "fixed" our suspension - it no longer goes clunk in the front. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

    no noise is good, right? RIGHT?

    quick question bout car prep: clearly these races are a contact sport, incidental of course. what's the thinking regarding airbags? especially seat mounted ones.... connectors pulled or systems left in tact?

    We pulled ours.

    Yes there is contact, but really it's more bump-and-grind. You're not going that fast. You are unlikely to pop an airbag... but better safe than sorry.

    the hardest hit you may take is if you get pushed into/hit a hard bank.

    The hit that kevin gave us which pushed us into/onto the bank was a big one, but not terrible. would the airbags have popped? not sure, but not worth the risk.

    I might have 1 or 2 seats available in the former No Limits delivery car this Saturday. I was supposed to be out of town, but had a work trip postponed until Sunday.

    1992 Mazda 323, auto, beautiful, smells great. She's not the fastest, but (knock on wood) has been reliable and fun in the snowcross series. Cost: pay your share of the entry + $50 to cover the wear and tear on such a pristine automobile?
