digital photo cafe sucks big monkey .....

his photos are not worth the money....and if you didnt' pay for them at the track, don't expect to get any. he's got the WORST communication skills in the world......never answers his emails and yeah, his pictures aren't that great either.

Chris (solracer) and Mike (mnovelle) takes WAY better pictures than that jackass and NEVER charged half the price that guy charges.

I bought from Mike and he was awesome! Got the pics right away and the CD showed up really fast. Not to mention the pictures were really high quality... Can't say as much for the wipe in them though

Thanks for the heads up!

I have a 08' Triumph, I can't get Attack plastics. Any other options?

If I recall he was running a special...$5 off special!!!! That made the cd....uh um...$70.

Of course, that info was relayed to me, so I could be mistaken.

You didnt hear him on the PA system all day?

I got a good number of pics from Saturday as I was cornerworking on turn 4. Soozie was on turn 7. Someone on sunday was taking bunches of pics at turn 4. Need to find them and see if they got some off me . I will post my pics up soon, and by soon I mean when I finally pull the camera out and upload them. Maybe tomorrow.

A) The guy got 16 photos of me. All but 2 were . He finally went down to $50 CD. But I still couldn't justify $50 on 2 good pictures.

B) His AC sucked . I was standing right under it to try and get some air and it wasn't putting out nothing.

I feel you bro! I started the day working on one corner (3 to be exact) on not touching the brake for a second longer than I would have normally. I had to make myself not touch the brake... was freaking hard, took every ounce of me!

When I did it everything changed for me! The next time through I waited a little longer, then longer, then started using less brake altogether... was a really productive day for me on braking!

I finally realized that I could hit the corners pretty quick and still feel very comfortable...

Ya corner 3 tripped me out. Dunno why but had to work on not braking so much going in. Corner 1 as well, just was nervous going in it so hot from the straight. Then corner 8/8a (i think) had to work on my line in to come out better prepared for 10. But 10/11 was by far my favorite part of that whole track.
