ApexJunkie or PegScraper?

I am thinking about doing a little website that would have information about a lot of the basics of track days, how to ride and read a track, all of the gear related issues, track upgrades, bike issues, brakes, suspension, that kind of stuff.

There would also be track information on most of the tracks in the US, as well as photos and tips, with Blogs from a few people who have some great unique perspectives to share.

I went through tons TONS of names, and checked them all out as to what domain names were available with .Com extensions, and the only two that I liked that were still available were ApexJunkie and PegScraper.

So the questions is this? Which one is a better name for the website?

Or do you have any name suggestions that are still available with a .Com extension?

Click HERE if you want to search to see if your suggestion is available.

Your thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated!

Note: My site would be in no way competing with CLSB, rather it would just be an added resource. I LOVE it here!

Picked up ControlRider.com and ControlRiding.com, good find Patrick.

They won't be good for what I want to do at the moment, but I can use them to share files with CRs.

TrackCoach.com was taken...

I worry about apex because it can also be viewed as automobile tracking as well.
