143 MPH, still running lean after the last adjustment to richen it up, but Hartmut says it is a much smoother ride with the front suspension back in place. Changing the fuel mixture, and working fast to get back out there.

Staged, but missed the cutoff so we will be in line first thing in the morning.

Liner has been unloaded at the start line, but we are waiting on the wind.

We can tolerate more wind than the solo liners, but ours can still get blown off course.

152 point something, still dialing in the fuel mixture, all other systems are working fine.

How can someone named landracing with one post be an administrator?

Stupid statement.

I looked into that one post thing, Dan.  In the members section it says the poster signed up in December and this is the only post.  I have to think that something's gone to hell in a handbasket with Jon's user id.  I don't find any other login for him, though -- so will wait for further information.  I deleted his account by accident a while ago - don't want to do that again. sad

Also look in "BUB 2011" in BUB General Chat on the Landracing.com forum homepage.
