Depends where you are. Here down east its heavy on the Bo but the further west you go they're softer on the Bo and heavy on the jangles. So when the o slides it turns into an A depending on the region. I've only heard that in Western NC, NE GA, TN, parts of western SC. Western SC is weird. Except Rock Hill which in my opinion is really North Carolina.


I love bojangles. Might have me a cajun filet biscuit combo for lunch now.

Savannah was heavy on the Bo as well. Confirming Mark's southeast theory.

Is it against forum rules or uncouth to post in the classifieds with a link to an eBay auction?

Went okay, lots of work, little sleep

We were running as high as 9th, but then had a wheel bearing fail around 8:45pm or so. The driver ended up getting sick (unrelated to the bearing lol) and threw up in the car on the way back to the paddock, so we had to clean that..... best part of that situtation is that the driver was a bit loopy when then got out of the car and told us the wrong bearing was bad. So, we ended up changing both front bearings after we found out that the other one was really the bad one.

That caused us to spend an hour in the pits, and dropped us back to 45th or so. Heavyyyyyyyyyy rain overnight, but managed they managed to not wreck it and worked their way back up the rest of the night/morning. Ended up finishing P16 (out of 100 cars that turned laps IIRC). I'm fairly confident we would have had a top 5 if it wasn't for having to change the bearing(s), and that unplanned driver change. Overall can't complain too much.

That is the stupidest car I have ever driven and it is ridiculously uncomfortable and I would sell everything I have to own one.

It is truly jeff in car form

It's oversized and comically proportioned and it talks like a ***got and it's offensive to polite society and it's wonderful
I also forgot to tell him how to soften the suspension.
