for real. it's been wet more often than not. this year looks like it may be one of the rarer dry one's though, here's hoping. 50% today/thursday, 10% the rest of the weekend https://weather.com/weather/5day/l/50b1a735e21492e4a2da0290b869b19814171e8691a7cfe108a95e8129b39348 ... more »

used PW is as almost good as a new PW. they are close to indestructable. $1600 new out the door. $800-$1200 if they are mega clean/like new $500-$800 if they are old but in decent working shape, $100-300 if they are salvageable with a rebuild...

that's how it works. the $100 you are seeing for racer x pit pass includes your entry ticket. pay that and you have full day pit access, as well as the base ticket access for saturday. so essentially its $60 (base ticket + all day pit pass)

he may have also said mike brown should be C class legal, instead of racing 4 strokes we should all be riding 6 strokes, and 2021 SX should be 23 rounds, all run at lake elsinore (RIP). but there would be no way to verify that, so just run with it.

obvious stuff like that, then all sort of shady stuff. example: PW's are oil injected. they have about a 1/2 gallon tank of 2stroke oil behind the front number plate. the throttle cable splits into two wires, one of them operates a valve/pump on the ... more »
