Let's go play - 05/13/05 - Andretti's -ATL

I'm gonna be in town 13 Friday 05 to visit Charlie and company for a while, visit my brother, pick up some stuff, etc.

We have a small group getting together after the fat lady sings at quitin' time at Andretti's for food, fun, and who knows what else.....I'm not for sure but guessin' things to get started sometime between 6:00 and 7:00.

We'd love to have all that can make it show up to meet, greet, and play.

So far we have:

Me.....
Nabil
SilverEight
Charlie

How bout it folks????

C-ya there!!

Well, I was in the process of responding to Phlash when my boss bolted into my office and I had to promptly and illusively click on the close box after writing a lengthy little response, which included a paragraph about the video, Nabil, here in out referred to as "The Video"! I wasn't able to get back online until I got home. How dare he to interrupt me in the middle of my forum browsing! Is there nothing I can do about such invasive authority? :o

As I was saying in my previous attempted post...

For those that were in our RX8 group from the NASA Road Atlanta event, I will have a DVD of all the high resolution images for you at our little get together on Friday. There is no browser interface so you will need to peruse them using your own method of viewing images. I do have them separated in 3 directories by date. They are unedited and some may need adjusting the levels, cropping, curves etc. Some should probably be pitched. Any way you will have every image to play with.

Now, "The Video"... like I told Nabil the other day, it will take me at least 80 hours to pull it together and I've not found the time to work on it yet, I will, I promise! Just please don't pin a target on my back bumper at Andretti's. :D

I'm hoping Charlie gets my sway bars in Friday AM. If so I'm going to try to get over there for the install of my bars and screens.

I know, there is going to be a good turn out, and I am pissed that I can't make it.

Anyone going to go next Saturday after the Dyno Day?

Guys, that was awesome! I enjoyed meeting more 8club members. We have a great group and I expect it will keep growing.

The cars were DEFINATELY different. Getting a slow car is really a bummer. My first one was so slow I think everyone passed me. My second car rocked (#4). If anyone goes back, try to get that one.

Charlie, your a hell of a driver. I liked it best when you were in front of me. Much better than when you were in my side! Can't wait till tomorrow to see if I can move when I wake up. I think I'm going to start calling you T-Bone!

Valpac, I look forward to the numbers.

Phlash, I should have gotten one of the tee shirts. What did it say? "If you are in control, your not going fast enough!" :D

LETS DO IT AGAIN!


After my ribs and blisters heal!

Thumbs up

Yep a great time was had by all. Fuddruckers burger rocked but the computer system did not. The following is the handwritten numbers from two outta three races ran.
Fast lap times for 9:40 race
Nabil- 31.162 (Congrats!)
Chest Rockwell- 32.260
valpac- 32.749
Charlie- 32.845
AC8- 32.909
winblu8- 33.761
SilverEIGHT- 34.892
Phlash- 35.720

Fast lap times for 9:50 race
AC8- 31.902 (Congrats!)
SilverEIGHT- 32.154
Nabil- 32.277
Phlash- 32.302
Charlie- 32.378

I can echo SilverEIGHT's post. Not all karts are created equal. I raced with Chest Rockwell and winblu8 at 9:00. That car #8 was certainly slower than the #4 I raced at 9:40.

winblu8, can you post those times for the 9:00 race?

I have pictures to post but its late and will do them tomorrow.
