Well,,,,We had a Few Problems right off the Bat...Im still Very Irritated about it....You see....Our Digital Camera AND our Digital Video Camera Both Started working improperly....the DC Wont Focus anymore and the VC would not Record nor would it show anything in the View Finder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So,,,,We did get some Really out of Focus pictures for you to enjoy!!! I called Canon on the VC this morning and apparently there is a Recall because of that Problem....But it will not be back in time for his Second Race....

Garrett did Very well last night...He was the Slowest in his Age group but then again,,,,His competitors were all almost Nine on 8 Thousand Dollar Quads...But he had a GREAT time...He Raced 4 times and each race was 8 laps...Each time he was Faster...He did Very Well in the Traffic and Kept a Good line all the way around the Track....Lisa and I were at different parts of the Track and we had a Few friends there as well at different spots...He knew where we were and took our Hand Signals Excellently!!! You know.....the (WAVE, WAVE, WAVE, GO GO GO !!!!!! Signal) He would Punch it when we did that and sometimes give us a Thumbs Up!!! LOL!!!! He made a Few Friends there too....He cant wait until Practice next Tuesday and then Race again on Friday....So that is all,,,,Here are the Sucky Pictures.......

Awesome, glad everything went good for ya except for the cameras. Is he hooked?? I know thats a dumb question as it easy to get hooked once ya do it. And bein slow is in the first race is normal just wait until he is doin stuff that puts a big ole smile on your face and makes your butt pucker up...lmao

This was his Second Practice Since his First Race....He is getting Faster,,,Not as fast as the other kids yet, but when he is as old as them, He should be...Just the Smile on his Face, the Thumbs up he gives me out on the Track, and the High 5's when he comes in almost Brings a Tear to my eye:o

I wish I could get to different parts of the Track for you...Ill do my Best next time...I have about 100 more Shots of all the other Kids Flyin through the Air...It just takes so Damn long to Download, Resize and Fix these pictures that I havent done it yet...Plus Trying to Figure out the Different Things on the Camera is pissin me off...Tryin to get the All Manuel Modes down...But have to account for several different Factors to get a Quality Picture...Also,,,Im trying to hunt down a Low Light 50mm(no Focus) Lens for Higher Quality pictures inside this arena...However,,,,None of the camera Stores are Stocking them for some reason...So if you know of one or you have one HELP A BROTHA OUT!!!!!

I will leave you with one last Shot:D

      Hey guys,
      Well, this race ended rather quickly for us with a flat tire around mile 4.5, along with one of our friends Justin breaking his tie rod and getting a flat tire, as well. I started 5th in 30 second intervals, and unfortunately 2 of the cars took the wrong turn, so I was in 3rd place and about to pass #1 and #2 when it blew. Here's the video:
      [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cEofBuZUzQ]YouTube - Whiplash Vulture Mine...UTV Marketplace RZR #20![/ame] Click "Watch in High Quality" in the bottom right of the video.
      Stay tuned, because I'm going to post some pics later...

      Recently I heard through the grape vine that in Wildwood NJ they have quad races on the beach? I was just wondering if someone might know when and where the race takes place. Thanks!
    • By powermaddd400ex
      was today in villanow. i was sooooooooooo lost haha, i had no idea where to line up. but i asked around and got some info on the race and made some friends.
      so when it was my classes turn to be released i got the holeshot and on baldys .
      but after that the rest of the race was horrible. first i got stuck behind some guy on a z400 that got turned sideways on a hill. so i went around him then i got stuck on a stump. a couple guys got me off the stump and im back at it again
      then i got stuck behind another 400ex, on this section of the track the was nothing but loose dirt. so we move him outta dirtpit, then it was my turn. I finally got out.
      then i got stuck on a HUGE HILL once again that was nothing but 2-3 feet deep of loose dirt.
      but it was nobodys fault but my own. i was runnin baldy so there was no way i could make it up the hill without help.
      so some1 helps me out again.
      then i get stuck on one more hill. i was doin great comin up it but then i tried to steer away from a rock(wouldve meesed up my already screwed up skidplate) which put me in a huge pile of dirt. i pulled the quad as far off the track as possible and waited 30 mins or so. oh yea ADAMILES you passed me on that hill, yep that was me haha. finally the help showed up and got me to the top of the hill. i asked the guy the quickest way to the parkinglot. my words were "man im droppin out of this hell hole" so he directed me to the parkinglot and that was it i was DONE.
      so i raced a total of 2 hours and didnt even complete my first lap. but i still got the holeshot none the less
      so before my next race my next investment will be some razrs.
      ok im done, jus wanted to inform yall of my hectic day
    • By wheeler0801
      so i've been really busy w/work so i haven't been on too much in the last week....but now i've finally got the chance!!!
      .....i blew my baby up last weekend at a race:frown:
      it started well....i got 2nd in the holeshot, and i passed the girl who was in first when she got stuck in a bottleneck of riders in a tree....
      then the rain started and it was super muddy....thennnnnnnn, as i pulled in my clutch to slide through a sloppy muddy corner...bam. she stalled. talk about being super upset, it was the first time i was ever going to lead a lap in this stinkin' series....quite an accomplishment for me, as this is my first year racing and they've been racing 4-5 years.....
      anywho....we got the motor out and took her to our local shop and found out....the piston shattered:frown:
      so...she's still at the shop, getting all kinds of new parts...and nearly $1100 later, I'll have a newly rebuilt motor for this weekends race....
