not a car in the lot across the street....

Damn! I still think Revy is a good place if we can get in. We'd have to rig up a "track"

But the lot we were at yesterday is usable...

ok, so i dragged my aching fat ass out of bed and you guys are chomping at the bit for racing already. i am getting too old for this! :D

as much as i'd like a short trip to the school to laps of an oval, i wanna set up a course with a right turn too! revy is a good idea. if the old go kart track was in better shape we could just go there. if we get permission to use it we'll actually need to spend a bit of time cleaning it up and moving the tire barriers around for a decent track.

we still have half a tank of bender's gas to use, so i don't think its going to be a big issue today. back has nearly a full tank, red and yellow are half tanks at least. we can use milk jugs for cones if we had to. milk crates, boxes, anything really. just no cutting hard inside someone if the corner is marked by a light pole :D

hey.. stock cars turn right! right around the wreck in front of them.

if a drag car only goes straight, why does it have a steering wheel at all? eh? hmm? huh?

tape will be avec moi. i'll bring my camera, but of course i don't have any tapes.

can you make a full raw video file over firewire? i'd like to get the raw unedited file so i can edit it down and put it back onto digital tape. somehow doing it on vhs isn't going to cut it.

None of those. This "Revy" is closed down. It's next to the Scott Road Skytrain station. Here is a map:

Look for the "ABANDONED" Revy store. There might not even be a sign there anymore...

you can't mistake it. it may not have a revy sign on it, but the revy colours are still there, and it has that distinctive revy roof on it too.
