Default Test and Tune - Wed 6/19

I know there's a Friday test and tune before this but unfortunately I'm working that night so I thought I'd post up and see who else maybe going to this one besides me , I'll most likely be leaving from Underground by 3:30-4pm

You should try it at least once. Be careful though, it can be addictive.

One of the better analogies is "lifting your foot off the clutch like you just stepped in dog **** as you begin to give it gas" basically

I shift sorta without the clutch, just start to push it, pull gear out and slam it in the next gear as I'm lifting off. Most of the time it doesn't grind.
If any of you guys need some clutch and shifting lessons, hop in my dumptruck. It has a 5 speed main box and 4 speed auxiliary (20 forward speeds, 4 reverses). I'll throw 25,000lbs of wood in the bed and you'll be running some gears.

Start off in 1st gear on the main box, 1st on the auxilary, then 2nd, 3rd, 4th, then 2nd in the main box, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc... by about then your doing 12mph. Did I mention neither transmission has syncros so your have to match the revs?

10 mins later you finally hit 65 and then some retard in a Winnebago is in front of you doing 42mph and you have no chance in passing.

Oh yeah, and you have to downshift to slow down, the brakes alone aren't going to stop it very fast.


Anyhow, I'll see if I can shut down a bit early and roll out, I put on some new tires yesterday.

Oddly enough, helmets are only mentioned in their basic rules. It states...

Your helmet needs to be a DOT / Snell approved and tech will be checking for the label.

Then there are these rules...

this is what I'm wondering, its only a mention in the top link and not even in the 2nd....

according to IHRA Rulebook I shouldn't have to have one. Why? because they don't even cover completely stock vehicles....guess with the single mention they do require everyone to have a helmet

Helmets are always required. Best find one that's correctly rated.

What time is it going to be good for everyone to meet up? Only ask because personally I'd prefer to get ahead of most of the rush hour traffic if at all possible
