With all the problems I've had building, glueing tire's to my head/person etc., you'd think I have problems with those things as well! I always used a good pair of small needle nose pliers to get them in the groove then a small flat screwdriver to finish pushing them on! Pan cars have the smallest spring clips known to man and I've always had luck pushing them into place with those tools!

Thanks, I'll give that a try. If I still can't get it I'll bring it on Saturday.

Congrats to Brian D for taking the win in the sportsman class @ McC's on Saturday. Even though I tq'ed u had the better starting spot. the "pink land shark" started behind me and in front of you and sure enough by the middle of turn one i became shark food!! It was fun working my way back up from 8th but I just ran outta time!!

Thanks for the pat on the back Brent!!!!lol Had a blast racing Sat. . I let you tq so you could be taken out like I do in the first turn down here!LMAO!!! Your truck is hooked up in the moist surface!Thats why I ran so many laps before the main to get it grooved up!ha,ha!! I could not make the double table top when it was tacky for some reason so I singled both doubles and ran consistent, only needed 1 marshal and stretched out a big lead. The results are not up yet but I think I got a lap on the field. Had fun,Thanks for the ride. Later..............

I'm planning on being there, may be a little late. I also may have my 1/8 for it's first attempt at a run.

Seems to have, I had to replace the Spring Clip, once I put the new one on it seems to have held. If the weather holds off tonight I may try her out a little.

Angry Clutch Bell

If someone has a Clutch Bell they are willing to part with/sell please bring it Saturday. New or Used, got the Buggy running but stripped the Clutch Bell, not sure why but someone can probably help me out on that one. It sure did run good for a while.

Joe
