Thanks for getting this idea planted. We do wander off subject at times, but I like that 2wd racer from all over are looking on and add good stuff in from time to time.

LETS RACE SOME MORE!!

And last year I splurged and bought a new monitor for my computer. I've noticed with this getting older crap that the eyesight isn't what it used to be, so I got a TV with monitor hookups and now can view things in all its 32 inch glory. Don't have to squint as much...now all I have to do is get new glasses so I can make out the yellow and blue blur at the end of the backstraight that I think is my car....

+1 on the tire front. Foster ran one set of tires the whole time and they look to have another full race left on them. BTW we ran 25 shore rears and 45 fronts.

Just got done ordering the diff. As the resident guinea pig, I'll let everyone know when it arrives and how well/if it fits. I'll do the initial mock-up in my Edam Razor to see what changes, if any, are required....here's hoping it gets the job done....

I'm half tempted to lock out the arms because I don't see what difference it would make, and it wouldn't be much different movement wise than the front end of a Moto. However...my preference is to make an aluminum piece to tie into the chassis itself for solidity, so that's the way I'll go. Strip out the front end, replace it with one of mine...all pretty minor details, really. I'm not real mobile this week and tons to do but at the very least I can guarantee I'll have the build before the GLC. Any chance I could get you as one of the victims to run it a bit and test it?

Got my new WRC cars in today. It's a neat car and I'll have mine in Portage. While I cried about a tax I had to pay and the cost of wiring them money, well it all was forgotten when I opened the box. At this point I say I don't care, even if it cost as much as a 4wd car ( it didn't ), It's not a 4wd, it's a 2wd pan and that a good thing!

LETS RACE SOME MORE!!

I'm probably wrong but I swear I remember rounds of qualifying on Friday as well. Besides, I thought all the electricians were selling copper on the side...hmm (lol)

I'm shooting for tops at the GLC in pan. Now that you have all new cars, I'll have to invest in a second man on the grassy knoll....
