North Dakota people Huh?????

Montana. Where men are men and sheep are lying little tramps. MONTAAAAANA! Ahh memories. The Montana / North Dakota jokes.

Great times.

And an awesome track in your yard.

Back in the days when they swept dirt onto the racing line in off-road racing. Now days they need the track swept or blown clean.

Wheel discs, YES. Aerodynamic inefficiency. Very important in low power "Blinky" racing. Every RPM is important.

If you buy that I have some ocean front property in Montana to sell you.

Found this on youtube, probably want to mute the background music.
Video shows a list of Corally 1/12 pan cars from 1986.

By the way, is Bob's video ready for showing?

Corally 12th scales always had so much character.

One of my favourite car builders of all time.

It's a Porsche 936, but I don't remember who made it. I would love to run bodies that actually looked like real cars again.

Schumacher C-car, 1983 vintage. Early version with one piece front wishbones, later wishbones were made from two pieces which gives a greater caster angle. Later versions also had longer slots in the motor mount to run a wider range of gears. Schumacher diff with sleeved rear wheels, and live axle front axles.
