    Cale we get it, you dont like Terrace Bay. You"ve made you point more then a few times. No one cares. Some people just want to go and have fun with their cars.

    If I hate it why have I raced there more than you? I'm telling him before hand what I had wished people had told me before my first outing

    And again, I wasn't hating on it I was trying to advise him, you took it as hate.

    First. Sorry to John for high jacking your thread.

    And actually "hate" was your words minid1ck5, not mine . I said "you dont like Terrace Bay". Ive already said what I had to say and I can see Im not getting through to you so I will leave it at that.

    OK, you took it to mean I don't like it then. Either way I was trying to offer advice, you just posted to complain about me. As you can see I've ran three different cars over at least 4yrs, the ranger being the first. You know what I ended up having to do with the ranger when I was there? Borrow slicks!

    Okay, Terrace Bay isn't the fastest drag strip but it's nice to have something close by. Now let's all hug and get along and stop cluttering up John's intro thread. Welcome to the forum by the way John!

    Drag strip = slicks.

    I get my best 60ft times at terrace bay. Also run just as fast as the states. They prep the shit out of terrace.

    We need a track in T-bay, at least then if I break my car I have family there. I'm worried about what I will do if I break in terrace bay since its quite a long way home. And I'm not too worried about traction since my car don't make much power anyway.

    Terrace Bay isn't that far from Thunder Bay. You could always tow it back to town if needed. Last year my brothers car broke so I drove mine home and his car went home in my trailer. If you have to trailer it home just let me know. Worst case I could go home unload and then head back and get your car. There are always options.

    ^ yup, you'll never be stranded. There's a lot of good people that show up to Terrace Bay and would to help get your car home.
