Yeah, I'd say that math sounds right, your point being ?

It was my first time in level 2, and I had a great time. My last session was fun playing with a couple of guys on 250's. They would catch me in the turns, and I would blast past them on the front straight. In the end they won. CMRA #669 I think. I will post the video up tomorrow. Sorry if I held you two up. First time at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

WOW! Harsh words, and here I thought he was saying at 2:10 you are better off in L2. , what level I ride in has to do with felling good about myself, maybe when I was ten. Just a hobby man.
