Vic, on the blueprinted diff cases, do you hand-dremel the bearing slots or do you use some other method? Sure saves a lot of time and effort to buy them though

We do use a special method to do the diff cases and we use dremel too. The unique thing is we line board the out drive bearing support, so the out drive will be perfectly straight and smooth.

Art where are you going to race carpet w/foams?(I already posted my snowbird setup a few pages ago)

How come you didn't come out to joes yesterday?

Vic are you coming out this sunday? Fenstermacher came out yesterday and is going to come out next sunday (he asked me to ask you to bring his two stock motors for him)

I did great this weekend.

Mr Warpspeed - I screwed around with a motor that was really fast and screwed it up, but even though the car was slow out of the turns and lacked a little top end, the car handled so well I was still able to pull off the win. Your diff cases have made a big difference in my drive train for sure too. Thanks

Howard - I was looking forward to a good battle with you Sunday. What were you thinking changing tires before a Main (Rookie ) ). Well...if I can make Escondido on Saturday, you'll have another shot at me.

Oh yeah.

I raced prostock and 19 turn truck series.
In stock I was TQ so I got a good jump and never really looked back and nobody got even close to battle for the lead.Boring!

It was pretty much the same thing in 19 except for, I think I mixed my pinions up on my bench and I overgeared it so I had no motor at all. But beside that my car was great. I would pull away from second on the infield but he would catch up and pass me every time we got on the straight, so one time intering the infield I guess he couldn't handle the pressure of me following him, got stuck on a pipe and I had about a half lap lead. But motor just kept going slower and slower til he caught up to me. There was only about 30 sec left and then he hit another pipe. So I got a good 20ft lead on the last lap and he was my buddy so I stoped right before the finish line til he came around. Then I started to go but he just SMASHED into the side of my car, full speed. It broke my batt. into 4 parts and it was also up under my drive shaft, on my speed contol. So he went across the finish line first, it was fun though!( NOT FIXING IT!)

We were going to, but too many companies are making them. This is something I have looked into and found out that this is something that I don't want to do.
