Well to start off I want to commend the Greenwood Valley Action Track for getting the show in despite rain showers through the night and the track stayed wonderfull. I don't know how they do it! In warmups and the heat race the car wouldn't stay running, we made jetting adjustments, bought a new spark plug, and reinforced a connecting wire to give the spark plug spark. In the feature I started last (13th) passed a ton of cars in the first corner up to 8th) I was running the highest line i could and their was a car sitting spun out in the middle of the track. I couldn't go low to miss him because their were cars their. Knowing that no matter what I will hit the wall I tried to throw the car sideways so I didn't hit any of the major components of the car and only hit the bumper but I was a few inches short and I broke the torsion bar. Since I don't have much to type about I will use this time to give a lil race car lesson lol. Torsion bar does the same job as a spring would. When weight is transfered a arm that is resting on the axel or that is connected to the shock is pushed up or down depending on what side it is on. That arm is connected to a metal bat that runs through the frame of the car. At the other end of the bar is a stopper, this is how you adjust it. If you have the bar stop sooner than it is teh same as stiffining the spring, if you let the bar travel further and take on more wieght that would be the same as softening the spring. As you can imagin these bars are put under a huge ammount of stress, basicaly your twisting a peice of metal with roughly 150 pounds on each corner so it don't take much to break them especialy while weight is transferring. So this was just one of them racing things. Im gona get started on tearing the car down and getting ready for next year. We are not going to magicaly start racing again I promis lol.
