I know the TAOB guys were there in full force filming so I'm sure Izzy will be putting together a DVD soon. Shane should have a bunch up soon and there were quite a few other people there filming. I'm sure it'll start showing up soon.

My long term plan is to put together a DVD just to see how it will look and what it takes. That will be a long way off, though. I've been so busy that I haven't captured any of the footage to the computer yet at all... with a 90 minute commute to and from work, and already lacking in sleep after my trip and the Reedy Race, it's been tough.

Things should start showing up here later this week or over the weekend.

This is the way I set up the TQ's motor(EJ Evans).......

Reedy 766 brushes......on the positve side it was a plus cut(vertical and horizonal)......on the negitive side just a vertical slot(polarity brushes I call them...plus and minus)...Blackstock and I came up with this set up at the Novak race....

Reedy copper head springs bent to 180 degees both sides works the best...

hope that helps all of you,

Barry

Thanks Barry!! the plus minus worked great!

BTW: Thanks for going minus 2 plus 2 on the golf course. LOL that worked great for me also!!

You can use a dremel with a fine cutting tool to make the slits.

Yup we were there alright IN FULL FORCE(I like the term John... ) Like I told the guys; even if we didn't get to race, we'll make sure to be involved in it somehow...

I took 3 hours of footage myself(was in charge of Saturday filming)... finished watching all 3 60-min tapes and there was no instance that I got bored... so it should be good...

BTW, J Kerr... I got some sweet pics of your car in your heat... that body you used is good for the camera! Stands out nice...

Hey, Ian...I was in the Cmain. Someone took my out after the first lap. Do you have that race on tape. That was the same main John Kerr was in. I'd like to know who it was.

Thanks,
Oliver

Ian, I can't wait to see those. Email me some copies if you get a chance. [email protected]

Oliver- I got punted at the start and then again half way through. I don't think I hit you at all. I was kind of a ping pong ball in the hairpin on the start.

Hey, John...I think I know who it was and it wasn't you. It's just a shame to have spent four days at a track preparing for one race only to have someone end your weekend after one lap.

you know what they say "Nice guys finish last". I was respectful of the other drivers and lifted going into the first and second turns to avoid hitting anyone and I get broke by someone who didn't give a rats xxx and finished of course...LAST
