Today was set up day and pre tech for this weekends races. Pre Tech did not go off with out a hitch because 4 out of the 5 F1s I saw teched (mine included) did not make width. Plus my batteries in which I swear I saw on the ROAR list when I ordered them were not on the legal list now. Thank goodness for Double D, he saved me again with a loaner ThunderPower 5600. My F1R is now legal, and back down to 180mm and my MFX should be legal in the morning when I borrow some Tires on stock rims from Robert. Ride rims are a bit wider, when I rough measured both cars with a tape measure and a standard to metric conversion chart, both were 187/188 mm. But in the official box, no dice. Its exact, and I am a half a sidewall over on the rear of both cars. But as I said, I'm legal in one car tonight and should be legal in the other in the morning. So I am not sweating it. Took a few random pics tonight, nothing in particular, but I did act like a fan and take a pic of Phalen and Kennedy. I know, I know, lets just say I was in awe of the situation of the Nats and it was basically rookie orientation day. Looks like we will have 13-15 F1s. Practice starts in 6.5 hours. And its an hour drive. No sleep tonight after wrenching for 2 hours when I got home. I'm gonna go watch P2 in Australia and drink a lot of Dr. Pepper for then next 24 hours.
