I can't possibly teach you anything at all without driving your car. :buck:

So I put my 10 month rested RE71 small tires back on the Vette. So they are about double seasoned then. Still have some tread for S1.

I really don't care what the weather does so long as it's warm. I beat Elliot by 6 seconds in the very wet with balding fat tires so how bad can it be? He beat me by nearly 5 seconds in the dry. If your tires are down to the bars are they lieutenants or just recaps?

I noticed there is an 8 pack of various colored chalk in the $1 section of WinnDixie. Would that last longer than wall board if it rains? Looked like a great deal to me.

I have a full tank of cheaper premium, skinny tires, maybe wife along for ballast and my usual wonderful attitude. What could go wrong? :whip: I pay cash money to watch others fail miserably and have a nice quiet lunch.

Hmmm...

Memorial Day is for soldiers who died.

Veteran's Day is for soldiers who served, but didn't die.

Is Armed Services Day intended for soldiers who are still serving? (I Googled it, couldn't really find a good answer.)

I think you're okay to whoop up on Vets, though. G'head. :chuckle:

That used to be called "trash talk". Guess it means something else now!! S1 is an open class now.
