I should be able to. Since it will be raining that sounds like a good night for alcohol. I can't drive any worse.

Edit: I spoke too soon. Probably cannot drink and drive tomorrow.

Not all of us have rain deflectors as "broadly" effective as yours.

Sorry, thought I already said I definitely couldn't make it.

Thing is I never know ahead of time exactly when I can get home and get on. But lately it's been about 9:40pm when I can sign on.

So next week we have some people that can't make it, anyone down for a Tues or Wed? If not we can skip it, which leads me to my next issue. Football season is soon here and there is Thursday games. Possible we can change the day for when the NFL starts? If not you will have to race without me for most nights, I know devastating.


So our next race will be our last unless someone has some other car/track suggestions to try out. I was thinking of doing the night race. We can find a nice pitch black track. Damage will be off so we don't lose our headlights.

I'd prefer a night other than Thursday. The band looks to be starting over for realz and that's our practice night.

We need to pick a night where Shmoopys wife is home watching him race.
I like when she's around for a few reasons
1. He is sort of quiet
2. No cussing, at all
3. No mother jokes
4. You can listen to his wife make fun of him for sucking.
Crash44 and Cravit8 like this.

Oh its a rock band but our instruments are of the expensive sim variety rather that plastic toy arcade stuff. Pattern memory is about the same but the mod tools are much better.

Personally I'm more than happy to miss out on Thursday night NFL action 'cause the a-holes that run the league are kinda cut out of the same cloth as the Acti/Bungie b-tards.... basically constantly scheming on ways to attempt to literally take over the lives of their consumer base.

<cough/end rant>

That being said I'm game to try out Tues or Wed going forward.

I also haven't picked a combo yet.

For the 1st I want run the BAC Mono on the Sonoma full course and for fun let's make that one at night. The 2nd I'll have to think about a bit more.

Can't do Tuesdays, have other nerd plans, additional next Tuesday is MGS5...gonna be busy that night.

Can do Wednesdays if we are rescheduling until Lazy gets over his Brady-man-crush-time.

It looks like my daughter's gymnastics classes have been changed to Wednesdays for the next few months. So I'm no good on Wednesdays and my wife is off on Tuesday/Wednesday for the next few weeks (her weekends rotate every two week).

It was fun to actually finish the races this week, but I need to get a night of practice before the actual race. I was all over the track. However, I think I did pull off one good lap that was only a few seconds slow.

Also, it looks like I was successful in replacing the thermal paste on my laptop - it's working, for now. MY GPU is idling around 58C now instead of 90+ as it was previously. CPU is currently maxing around 70C and it was over 100C in the past. If I bump it down to entertainment mode from high performance mode, it will probably run even cooler. Now, let's see how long this will last. I should probably buy some compressed air so I can clean out the fans every so often.

So I guess Wednesday it is? If Thursday works out better thats fine I dont mind sitting out for a few months. I invest a good chunk of change in fantasy so I try to watch all the games, a little gambling on the side helps the video game habit also.


Looks like we have 1 race so far. Maybe we can race the Ruf again for the 2nd race
