    Default NJBA Update

    Tough conditions up here today, DA was 4500 ft. most of the day. Lots of guys are struggling to run the number, some are as much as .5 off the number. Water was perfect all day, no wind at all. New timing system is bad ass!! The tree seems to be real accurate, all the racers were trying to adjust so lots of red lights today but alot of .0 lights as well. Anyways hope to see some of you guys up here tomorrow.

    418 is doing okay, we are only running one class (8 sec bracket) we went quicker as the air got worse so we made some good calls. 8.17/128 mph, 8.15/131 mph which put us #4 qualifier. In the afternoon we went 8.11/127 in the dash for cash on an 8.10 dial in, hoping we took the win in that deal will know tomorrow at drivers meeting. Tomorrow will be tough but looking forward to it.

    Met David 519 and his crew at the track today, great group of guys, looks like they have their chit togethor. They were testing props and gears and stuff trying to get that thing dialed in, not sure of the numbers but it looked good.

    Not meaning to hijack the thread, But I just learned of this accident. I was just down at Englishtown last year. Being I live in the state, I'm surprised we never heard anything about it.

    RIP Scott.

    Nice too hear but i think that the new timing system might have a little to do with numbers being that far off as well.Only time will tell

    but still good numbers you are getting.

    I heard blownjet was doing ok today too.He said the new tree is nice though.also said he saw some racers tring too cool off in small pool so he had to invite them over for dinner.LOL

    Another Update...

    418 went 8.02 first run this morning which was great for the conditions. Red lit by .1 in the semis and that was the end of our weekend. Was more than pleased with the way the boat ran this weekend considering the new lights and tough conditions. Congrats to 509 for cutting a perfect reaction time today, that was unreal! Also congrats to David 519 for making the 8.50 final at his first race back, great job!

    Didnt end up winning the dash for cash "dial in" deal on Saturday because I red lit, never did hear who won that deal. The rules for that dash for cash need to be discussed. To me it makes no sence that you cannot win with a red light but if you do go green your reaction time means nothing in the end. You either add the reaction time to the et and disqualify any red lights or you simply do a dial in deal and ignore reaction times. It needs to be one or the other.
