LETS RACE SOME MORE!!
.........absolutely agree with the 7 port.........McNish said his 5 port Novarossi for his GT was had from Hammer for around 169 bux or so........now thats a cheap 1/8 class.........

Default Hey

Not that I didn't want to be there. Oh yeah, we were all set, started packing stuff up, getting the cars ready to go, and suddenly I hear this huge wind.....

That was Friday afternoon. As of about one hour ago, power was just restored. We were running around all weekend getting generators going, had to drive 50 miles one way in search of gas for the gennies, etc. I had to move trees in order just to get off my road...it was an experience. We'd have been there had there been any way, but as such, we'll spend the next week cleaning up from the storms and restocking larders, so we'll plan to make the next race (provided some other crap doesn't come up.)

Joe is right, the pan class is a blast! We just have to figure how to get Matt to make the jump to a car that will makes it threw the day. Don't get me wrong, his Ass RC 300 is fast, it just doesn't last. As a results, we have a fast driver doing allot of watching.
Speaking of Joes, I knew Joe Tuttle had a loose screw but not his car, let alone 3 of em.
Farmer, keep waitting!

Is that GT motor a .21 or a .28? The Kangaroo would work good. Joe, your racing is getting better every week and maybe 1 more lap would have done it, however I'm not sure Ned had kicked in his 4 barrels yet. Wish I spent a little more time checking out your glass chassis, I might have to do my own.

Default Hey

My partner in crime (Tom) is still without power...he's currently running gennies for his daughter and her family, his place, and his mother in law. Lots is getting back to normal around here but there are a lot of places still without power, I'd heard it extended from Columbus Ohio as far as Charleston, WV. They say it wasn't a tornado but I have a hard time buying that, having seen oak trees uprooted. It's the longest power outage I've ever had...tomorrow I start looking for a whole house gennie that runs off natural gas, I'm not going through this one again.

Anyhow, I'd mounted a number of sets of rubber and had several diff/engine combos to try out. I mentioned on the GLC post that I got my order in from Edam and I've got a car for a raffle/prize, new kit. I also bit the bullet since I'll be driving one, and got one for Toms son Dave...I got about 800 bucks worth of parts, a lot of which fit Sheperd, Serpent and Mugen, and I'll be dragging that with me to races in case anyone needs parts. I say that because I read a post about someone on the sidelines, and wondering what I should drag for pan. I'm looking for a box trailer to permanently convert a la Dennis (thought his setup was pretty good.) For those running the old stuff like me, I've got some engines, pipes, gears for MRP, blah blah, but if anyone has any ideas on what else I should bring, let me know. I don't have diddly for Associated but I'll supply what I can.

Here's hoping nothing else keeps me from attending races in the future...now pardon while I go in search of some wood to knock on that didn't get blown away.

Default For the record.

Matt, For the record, the 3-port NR motor (we've been running) with pipe and header was $165. The price to race a GT car, is way higher then a pan car. Lets not even talk work load. You're in the best deal already, you just need a car that is up action.

...and though GT cars look good in the pits, they are not as graceful on the track. I'll keep my 1/8th buggy in the dirt.

Lon got my last NR vintage 3 port but I checked with motonica and they have more in stock, so I will get at least a couple more.

i think next experiment with that will be more of a "sandwich" like the stock chassis. thanks for the compliment been working hard (at home) on set up too just concentrate on driving.
