My new source for competition since I can no longer race bikes.

My newest toy.



Here are a couple of bodies that I painted over the weekend for my touring car and stadium truck to use for next weekend's state championship race.

That is a Cartel tab.

I use the "Paper Truing Method to determine my nock point.
The arrows I use are Easton carbon shafts and I fletch them with 1 7/8 inch feathers.

What I meant was what do you use to mark your nock point ie. super glue+floss...brass point (doesn't look like it)...other? When I used to shoot, I had a set of Easton ACEs that I could only afford in a trade at the time. Still have them but are missing some points and nocks.

Ah, gotcha.
That is a brand new string. The very next thing I did after taking that image was true the bow. I use brass points.

Pretty good. Been out in the mountains a lot. Snowboarding.

At least when I go down at 40mph, I can get back up and keep going.

Trying to get back into cycle, I've been feeling kinda lazy.
