What size sprocket do you use?
The math equals 46.5, do they make half size sprockets? If not, is it better to round up or down?

Two orgs? We could have 20 orgs and it wouldn't matter to some. Or, maybe I should say it would matter too much. Some of the complainers here aren't even racers and aren't even effective wannabe racers. They are "I told a dude I met while watching a track day one day that I might wanna go racing because five people on MH said I was fast so I said I might wanna try it but I'll only race one or two events 'cause I'm broke and I'm saving up to buy an F4i to try stunting with but I'll only race if I can do it at a track within 30 minutes of my house and only if that track is a big bike track 'cause no one good races a mini because that can't possibly be any fun and real men don't ride mini bikes on the track anyway and CRF50s don't count because you can stunt them even though I don't have one of those either so I am saving for one of those too and I'll only race if there are few enough people on the grids that I might win a trophy in case I'm not as fast as everyone says..." kind of people.

These people have missed the first point about racing and racing operations, so I don't have any lofty expectations about them getting any other points about it.

Yet we have some old school racers, expert racers, CMRA loyalists who lurk here every now and then to get good deals, make smart comments, love to promote their businesses, give a hard time to new comers etc etc.

The field is even in my opinion...

and this thread has strayed waay off its course.

Since alot of you "real" racers have inside scoop, can you guys clue me in on when or which track the CMRA intends on doing the cross over with tmgp?

Hey Moe, You forgot to ask a question.

Oh you did.

But if you've been paying attention you would know the answer.

Once again though, I seem to remember Chris Corder mentioning in the schedule thread that it was going to be the June OHR race that may possibly be the cross-over race.

Now, this is a stretch, but a seasoned racer like you might be able to pull it off. Try to email Walter or Nancy. I know it sounds crazy, but trust me, you may actually get an official answer -or- you'll be told that they don't know yet but an announcement will be forth coming. You can be the guinea pig and see if that method works, maybe you can report back with your results?



I dunno, I'm not that smart.
