Turn two is a problem as well. I would swear you were trying to unscrew that thing.

I kinda liked the St Claire Race last year Class 1 and 2 all went into turn 1 together flat out. A start that was rough on us was Algonac 2006 a couple of big Vee's and a 28 skater called Catcando running on glass, the pace boat brought us down to about 42 MPH then drops the flag, the Vee's were plowing like underpowered Bertrams and the cat took off like it was shot out of a cannon and never looked back lol those guys can run.

yea . . . that was interesting . . . . actually St Clair 06 was a great start. 13 boats in class one and two and us right in the middle . . . 6 boats on both side. Destin was cool to, we carried huge air down the front stretch after the flag drop

My favorite start? Is when you are sitting there clenching the steering wheel, you look at your competitor, you see sweat beading down their face and then the green flag goes down and your into the first turn, you want the lead and then smack, she hits you in the side you turn the steering wheel hard to the right to push back and then you push them into the bank. Making sure that you are in the lead and then the rest is history because by now you have gained the lead and she can not catch up to you. So the win is yours!!!!!!


Oh yeah as far as racing goes I will always favor St.Clair's starts. That start of mine was in Oval Track Racing
