You need to treat her, get her a Cuda of her own
Actually, I tool her to Socal a couple of times and she enjoys watching cars get banged up. First time there, she said: "Cool!, so this is the demolition class right? when do you run?".LOL!

I laid out a little micro track here at the office and sometimes she sneaks over from her office and drives around in the micro. Not sure if she's interested in the 10th scale though.

I still remembered a year ago I was bashing in the parking lot and she watched and laughed and said I suck so she offered to hire someone to take over my position at the office and told me to don't worry about the business and just go practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. As long as I'm a DAD and a family man on the weekends is fine. I'm still doing that believe it or not. LOL!

hehe.. here's the secret ok?

1. be a good understanding husband and always listen before speaking.
2. always compliment how nice her hair, dress, figure looks.
3. be an excellent cook on the weekends and prepare gourmet style dinners for the whole family. <be aware of what SHE likes to eat>
4. During the marriage relationship, it is required that you do not touch until touch upon. Just like the ROE us military guys have. Do not <insert> upon <insert> upon... LOL!

Seriously, it works. but there are other factors. I'm just not in the position to reveal them.

LOL, does your son sit on it whilst driving it? bet you could attach a small trailor for him to sit on and give it torquey gearing, now that would be fun

The orange posts are made for the car without gear covers, the black ones are if you want to run gear covers.

I ran at Hitec which was a dirty dusty track without the gear covers and the rear gear has a slight nick in it, but wont hurt any performance. If you run on a nice prepped track, forget the covers...

My wife thinks it's gayish though. Luckily, my other office is down the hallway so my wife comes in and out with food and beverage so I don't have to get up.

Wife: "honey, how is the car coming along?"
me: "it's coming alright but I'm thristy!"
Wife:"Ok, here's glass of Lemon ice tea"
me: "well, don't just hand it to me, can't you see my hands busy?"
Wife:"here"... <she tilts the glass so I can drink while I'm still wrenching.>

LOL!

Dan
I bet I could lose parts off my pink cuda on your beach towel

Start off with a 26 tooth pinion, that'll give you a 6.76 ratio, it's a starting point for a big open track..
