Hi Guys and Gals:

I'm relatively new to this tracking stuff. I started out straight lining it in my younger days. Then helped a friend circle tracking for a while. Lately, I have spent too much time working for a living and now I want to start having some fun.

I ran into my "R" sort of by accident and as soon as I laid eyes on her I had to have her!! I have been bitten by this bug pretty bad. I'm looking forward to running around the track with you guys and learning the things I didn't have time to do in the past.

Hope to see you at the track!!!

Bruce,

Get out of the freaking snow and cold weather and go south for March. If you want to get an early start on open tracking, then come to CMP in SC in March. If all goes like normal, they'll be warm toasty weather and flowers blooming in the south. ;)

Hey Bitn:

Don't think I don't hear you, trust me, I hate this friggin' cold weather!! But this year it is going to give me a chance to get "prepared". I'm not going to order my trailer for a month yet. I have lots to do on the car and getting all of this stuff together. Have to install my roll cage, six point harnesses, diff cooler, and put in some gauges etc. etc. Not to mention SC is quite a hike from here.

Just got my new tow vehicle today:D So, I'm well on the way. My plan is falling into place.

I'll get around next year, don't worry!!!:thumbsup:

Just so you all know, I corrupt very easily :bounce: :bounce: :rotf: :rotf: :bounce: :bounce:

Brian, I was trying to work up a deal with Paul from Des Moines, IA on his trailer but given the distance between us and not knowing exactly what the condition of his trailer was, for 50% more, I decided to order a new one then I can get exactly what I want.

Here is what I have decided on and anyone please chime in if you think you can give me some advice because this is the first trailer I have ever purchased.

After looking at the Pace American Shadow line I have decided that is what I want. The 24' trailer has a payload capacity of 3150# with a 10% "fudge" factor and I was a little uncomfortable with that. I know that you can put heavier axles on it but the 6" I-Beam frame rails kind of gave me the "willies". So I decided to go with the 26' trailer which has the 8" I-Beam frame and 6" additional height because I'm just a little on the tall side. Then I can order the trailer painted red and it will match my newly acquired F-350 tow vehicle.

Bruce :thumbsup: :D
