I've made too many mistakes... Speed is there, I just need to put (keep) it all together for a complete race more consistently.

I enjoy Dover.  The thing that concerns me is the multi-car accidents that you get with a tight track with walls low and high.  I know Sim-Tech Racing will have speed, just hoping to keep the panels straight.

1.  Not satisfied with my personal results.  2 missed races and some poor performances.  I've had a few top5s though so it's not all been bad. Definitly looking forward to next season. On the team from we are in first place. So there is a bright spot. Hope to finish strong and carry momentum goin forward.  

2.   I expect to be competitive.  I believe all of us (team ford/Layne) will be in top 10.  I believe one of us could grab a win. 

3.  Short tracks are both a weakness and a strength.  I'm good at some, and bad at others. Dover is my home track and also one of my better short tracks.

Jeffery I just have to say that was a classic bump and run. yes he was lap down so was I. You may not be aware of this but you were not holding the best line. we were 4 seconds behind you and we caught you in like 5 laps. to give you a comparison Steve followed you for 2 laps and then decided to bump and run ya. I followed you and tried to pass you clean and it took me 6 more laps. You at that time need to think ok these guys caught me pretty quick do I A not care or B let them by in one corner tuck behind them and see where I'm losing speed or what's there line can I run that line. I'm just stating the facts. I stayed behind you till I put enough pressure on you to where you made a mistake and I went by but in that time Steve had pulled away by 7 seconds from me. Tired of people bad mouthing other people when they don't look at there race review or anything. Also the last part of your statement sounds like its a retaliation talk and if it is I hope the league keeps an eye on your actions maybe you might realize. I realize I'm gonna open a can of worms here but I don't really care. so don't bother responding to this we don't need to bog the site down with bitching back and forth I mean we had one post I cant remember who it was it went on for like 10 days OMFG. y'all need to let shit end instead of trying to get the last word in. what do you think that looks like to the people sponsoring or paying for this series when they open it up and see all the whining and crying. I swear to god I'm gonna sponsor next season and call it the Kleenex season or Pampers season for all the whine asses. yes I have had my ***** session and if you look back it is one post and I leave it at that. So if you want to ***** about this post PM me don't put your drama up here its time to clean up this league page from all this BS

Survthst was not a bump and run. That was a smash and run. You didn't see me get completely side ways? Or the back of my car?

I realize you caught me in 5 laps then "I wasn't holding my line" and you waited before I made a mistake.

Silly boy. That was on purpose running an off line to keep you and steve behind me. I was purposely running a half lane up. That's called strategy. I knew you couldn't pass high and stay out of the wall and I knew you couldn't pass low without losing steam. That's called smart racing. But I did not make any aggressive blocks just smooth half lane adjustments.

In addition to that, did you not see who you were racing for position? You were racing Colton for position. I am part of Ford Layne Motorsports so I made it easy fir him to pass and hard fir you to pass. That sir was on purpose.

And that mistake I made that finally let you pass was me letting you by because the 7th place car was starting to catch up to me.

Trust me, I can hold a line and have strategies all planned out. Had that last run only one car could have finished without stopping on the lead lap. You can guess who was saving the entire run and who that would have been.

I'm in complete control of my car and strategy at all times. You can bet that if my line is wavering it is for a reason. Colton finished ahead of you because I made it difficult fir you.

Steve hitting me like he did was bull$hit. And my remarks to him about giving his paint back is not retaliation. That's called let the men deal with it. That paint will be returned. Maybe not even this season, but it will be returned in the same legit manner.

Btw I saved thefreplay of steves hit on me. I assure you it was egregious. But instead of being a crybaby I'll handle it myself. I have a good memory of what happened on the track many races later.

Also I'm not mad at Steve at all. We're both men, and he is a good clean Racer 98% of the time. Me too.

Love you.

Switching topics, I remember someone here talking about 3D printing. I just ordered a 3D printer and was wondering where to buy the PLA at? I'm a newbie and plan on making button boxes and shifters for DD Wheels. Any help or tips would be good. I figured a basic 3D printer was good for that


I bought the 2017 Tevo Tarantula with the workspace upgrade and auto leveler.

Who was it? I'm thinking either Eddie or Jon but not sure.

Good Race had a lot a lot of fun, too bad I lost so many positions on the last restart. I know I made contact with James at one point sorry about that, but I was having a blast man! I ran Johnny low on the back stretch really feel bad about that thanks too him for giving me room. Outside of that can you all believe the long runs it was great to watch. looking forward to the next 2 races.

I puckered hard when we touched, I think it was both our faults though Converging top and bottom line you cant really see anything

Folgertech FT-5
Ctc dual extruder
Ctc fourmaker
Folgertech FT-5 r2
and a raised 3d n2 plus
 that tevo will require a few upgrades to print with carbon fiber.
also for better strength PLA go with PETG
but if ya wanna step up to the big leagues get yourself a ruby nozzle along with a e3d hot end and an titan aero extruder. you have any more questions just message me on face book

Here ya go Jeffery trying to help ya out 

1. I highlighted words that could use some spell checking those are the yellow ones
2. As you probably guessed the ones that are blue are the ones that made me fall out laughing

PS if your not sure how to spell it just throw some letters at it and right click that little mouse thing and tada the correct spelling shows up. Not being a smartass or a "cry ass" just trying to help out a fellow racer so we can understand what your telling us.
and don't worry we still love ya and we'll leave the light on for you
