How much does the spoiler help keep it down? Does it help to have the spoiler has high as the car because of how the wind rolls over it?
I feel like there has got to be a point where they are just too big but maybe I just don't know enough?

We pretty much made the spoiler as big as the rules would let us. Since we aren't at really high speeds we need a duel element that is rather tall. Between the spoiler and the lip the car is kind of like a 300hp go kart.

Thats the point! My codriver laid down a fast run of 56.998, but hit the last slalom cone before the finish. Our fastest clean run of the day was a 57.0

Some kind soul took a picture of me this weekend.

That sucks amigo! I was torched in one league, and squeaked out a win in the other.

Spida, we don't play each other, so lets walk the field Wednesday and help each other out with what we see
EDIT: and our games are at the same times basically.
We both have a Palm Beach team in our brackets which I don't care for because I've heard lots of counter coaching come from PB supporters at World Cup
I'm glad we don't play. I was shown a very nice bounce shot this weekend. We will strategize Wednesday.

I can't waaaaaaiiit. I wish I flew out today.


Does anyone have advice for flying with PB markers? I was thinking of putting my luxe in my carry on to avoid giving the baggage carriers the opportunity to steal it.

No sir, I'll be working on the webcast for the event. First time I'll be at a tournament and not taking photos. Kind of strange to think about. I get a lunch break, so I think I'm going to walk around take some photos then while in the pits and what not.

EDIT: Spida, TSA will confiscate your marker and you'll probably get a full body cavity search while getting put on the terrorist list if you put a marker in your carry on. All of your gear has to go in checked luggage since it can be considered a "weapon".

I will put it in the checked luggage then. I do not want a cavity search, or to be on the derka derka mohammed jihad list.

Are you going to be filming for PBA? That would be very cool sir.

I'll be working the graphics for the webcast, so when Matty starts talking about a team's "Keys to Victory" and that pops up on the screen, that'll be me that puts it up there.

I'm just going to hoard it all. My pockets won't be lined with cash, they'll be lined with food.
