We have been working on the problem for an over an hour now with no success. We wanted to start developing times about 10 minutes before 2pm to start posting on time. That didn't happen and now we have times that I cannot trust are accurate at all. Some are I'm sure, but many are not and we are having to reboot every other pair or so plus getting times thrown up that are flat wrong.
Therefore, I must call a halt to this before I beat somebody elses car up trying to get this accurate. We will work on the problem and IF we can get it corrected using some of my tjets, we will resume the time trials.

I will be getting with Sam who is working today and won't be available until early Monday to come up with a decision as how to cure this mess. My current thoughts are to attempt to fix the track problems once and for all in the next 24 hours and run many of my cars over and over to make sure they are repeating accurate times before we do re-run the Test n Tune. IF that doesn't work, I'll work with Sam and the Directors to figure out how to go from here. I will pay the return postage for all cars and refund any money you sent if we have to cancel the race here at WDWAHO. Sorry for all the inconvenience and .... just NUTS!!!

Thanks guys. To keep everybody from wasting too much time waiting. We will return with a comment at 10 PM tonight (or later if too many beers are involved.) Thanks for the comments being so polite. WDWAHO out.
I think the best thing to do is to put everything on hold until try the glitches are figured out. If nobody objects, hold onto the cars for one week. If you do figure out the problems, run the cars at your convenience and then post times. If there are still problems and you feel that the timing system will still be a issue for the Nat's then I say we have to post pone the event until A.) The timing system is figured out or 2.) find a new venue to run the race. Just curious if need be......Is there another track close by that can accommodate the event?
Either way, you have our full support. No need to stress. We will get the event in one way or another. I bet this gives you flashback of running a real drag strip hey?
Oh yeah! At least 10000 people can't throw stones at the tower windows! That's a story for another time and IT WASN"T MY FAULT and I CAN PROVE IT!! (Never get into the rock concert business, even if you do have the bleachers to hold a large crowd.)
This one however... We "think" we've narrowed it down to about three places the problem could be. I'll work on it and we will finish the time trials in the next few days or come up with another plan that all can agree with.
