Frank was using low profile Kronos tires. However, his left rear tire did not survive the full main. It was completely bald, and Frank said he was definately losing traction coming out of the hard right hand turns near the end of the race.

hessel, a whipping post is a big pole that you tie people to and then beat the hell out of them with a whip!

All joking aside I'm sure that we will all have a great time at the worlds and all get along fine. See you next week! Tot ziens, Ron

Yes Marcus is also very fast but Marcus has been driving the track since last saturday (week advantage) and Hessel set his time on the second day he's there (arived thursday). And the more rubber on the track (and everyone is flipping over) The "Pitstops FG" is turning like on glue....... man this is going to be a great event, I wish I was there to see all the life action. :mrblue:

Rev-up magazine:
Hessel Roskam has been the fastest on the track with his PitStop FG running very low 23 seconds and a few 22.75+ laps as well. At this rate my prophecy of a 21 second lap may just come true.......


3MTAE: Remember that Hessels FG is a "Pitstop tuningcenter FG" Much better, even the factory FG rider come and look how their car is set-up :wink:
Rubber is getting down wonder if anyone can go for that un-imanegable 21 lap......
