    3 hours of sleep per night since Friday the 15th The Flyin' Aces have hopefully exorcised the demons of disaster. After the perfect 10 from the high board Friday afternoon leaving The Intimidator basically like the box of spilled toothpicks in the movie Rainman The Ace's put on their big boy pants and never looked back. Finally getting everything dead on as possible with a POJ car they were happier than a hog in slop to get the front, rear, left right weight bias dialed in only to find their scales were lying the whole time.

    With no time for corrections at that point it is what is and the PO was holding up to our agreement. If we're not there by closing they lock up and go home without us shipping. But Carley's Intimidator is on that big ole jet airliner heading west to Eagle Mountain to compete in the Major Scout Division. Sub 3's may not happen with a hobbled car this time around the mountain but at least it'll be there Doin' it for Dale.......RRR

    Harbour freight $16 each, they have little cups on the surface to help centering & "keeping them from rolling off"..
    2.98might keep your name on the leader board.

    Good Luck

    Got some at rest block.s should start using them LOL. With so much damage and the lying scales the weight bias is so screwed up 3.0's are probably to be expected but at least we'll be there. Checking out the scales. Thanks
    TRE but that would be too easy LOL. We may get out run but we refuse to get out worked. Sleep is over rated LOl !!

    Seems like I heard that some where before and I concur with you 100 %. But with the Pro Division being decided by .0001 last month The Aces figure a 10 thousandths is where ever you can find it and worth going for since they have nothing better to do LOL. There's only a millisecond between the past, present and future so why not go for the gusto while you can ? Besides I'd rather race PWD and lose than to have played golf and won !! LOL......
