    Default Reno Stead Report 8/30

    Washed the car and took a quick drive over to Stead.

    The Rare Bear crew was at it on a wonderful Sunday Nevada morning.

    Even Stu was in on the fun. They said all the run-ins were done, prop got balanced yesterday.

    The plan is to go up tomorrow AM.

    The bleachers are all up. General admission has 3 sets of stands, for some reason it seems like its less than last year??

    The guys let me put couple Section 3 decals on :-)

    3. Autocrat: one with absolute power
    4. Boss: someone in authority or control, as a manager or supervisor or a politician who does not have official status as leader of a political entity but has the actual power
    5. Captain: a commander of certain military, law-enforcement, or firefighting units with the official rank of captain, or one who commands a vessel regardless of actual rank, or, by analogy, one who is an acknowledged leader (as in the metaphorical phrase “captain of industry”)

    I agree, this is great for us to keep up to date and excited. Thank you Dawg!

    Anyone know what the advantage of the sanded prop is on the bear? I figured the sleek prop would be less drag-

    IIRC,, Friday maybe Saturday last year they were sanding the paint off of the prop.. If this is the same prop I guess it proved to them that it worked better without the paint they had on it during qualifying last year? Not sure why it works better though

    And sometimes you just find some orange peel in the paint.

    A sanded prop gets better traction. Less "slippage" in the air molecules than with a glossy finish.
