I don't have any tips for you, but that is a good looking car. Looks like it would be fun to drive.

It would be nice to have rain at this point. Sacramento closed due to heat. Rolling Eyes I wonder why, it's only been over 100 for 11 days so far. I live in the foothills and it's been 100 for 10 of those. The low temp has been 80 just about every day. I hope you can run it. When you run it when you see the last Yellow hammer down! Good luck. Try Smokes racing simulator, it works!

When you put the second bulb on the only thing that matters is the tree. Who cares who is in the other lane? Just worry about what you can control.
I don't know how much of a delay you'd need to add to the SMOKEmUP practice tree but if you don't have a practice tree of your own it's a good practice tool. You'll find it under games.

Good luck
