Leave the stud girdles on just loosen them enough so that you adjust your rockers.

Good advise. Too bad you don't practice what you preach.

I ran a 1.178 60' in the left lane at a 7.99 and a 1.130 60' at a 7.99. Only problem was that light was a .525 in the left and a .575 in the right. The rollout has to be messed up. Everywhere else I 60' around a 1.085. Being slower I can live with but the inconsistencies in the lights you can't over come. We probably won't be back unless alot of changes transpire. Its a shame because the track looks great. Pits are nice. How long have the scoreboards not been working?
