    So I be up here in the Sac area covering the last VORRA race of the season and I had to snag one last ride around the track.

    So I got a Class 7 ride, the truck is actually 7s legal, so it's not a high $$$$ truck.

    Couple of rough landings later, the spine is curved I think and the kidney's have had better days.........

    That wouldn't be from the strain of the beer belly would it? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Just a tad /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif. But the ride helped out that curvature just a tad bit.

    Did you ride up front or in the back of the truck? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Well, I took my camera along so I could post some pics from the co-driver's point of view /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif; but within 200 yards of starting, my camera malfunctioned seriously bad and and after messing with it for about 2 laps, I had to give up the ghost. The camera is f'ed up big time, just hope that dime sized dirt clod that hit from the buggy isn't the cause.......... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    By the way, my spine is still somewhat compressed, but the kidney pain is gone thanks to some 4 hour old McD's I got for free that afternoon...... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I bought my sony for $250 and added about $200 worth of extras. So with $450 invested I decided to pay the $50 for the "Anything Goes" full warrantee. They said that even if I dropped the thing from my hang glider, as long as I could find it, it would be covered under warranty. BTW I bought it from Best Buy. You have a cheapy if I remember correctly. If you decide to get a good one get it from Best Buy and get the warrantee... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yep, I have the cheapy but guess what??

    I never have loaded the software on the laptop and I never took the laptop to the Sac races so the camera stayed home and I've been kicking myself all day long about that............... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
