Yes indeed, I did make a small appearance in the "group photo"--2nd from left. I was not at the race meeting that was discussed in the article, but I scrap with those guys on a regular basis. Oregon has its own sanctioning body (OMRRA) which runs out of Portland, and we (WMRRA) run ours out of Seattle and Spokane. The Portland track is a nicer facility than Pacific Raceways here in Seattle and definitely nicer than Spokane, but the track itself is rather featureless for a 160. PR kicks ass because of the elevation change and scenery, Spokane is pretty fun, too.
Thanks for diggin' on the scene, and I have been reading through many of your posts. I am curious as to how even our machines are (can't imagine they're much different) although I have been to J. Branson's website several times in the past and seen some of the "trickery"...cool stuff indeed!
I noticed that you guys were talking about the Dunlop tires, and I am very interested in making the switch from Avons. One guy here already has. I don't know where he got them. I troed to call RC Barker about them once a couple years ago, but he said he had not received a shipment. Is he the only guy?
