Mike thanks for the help. I'll be at Rev on Sunday for the race. I'll look you up, for the hook up.

Thanks,

Hi Mike,

I decided to pass on the Winternats this year and take a vacation with the family instead. In Cancun now, enjoying the warm weather.....while Sohl is freezing his a$$ in New York!

I've been running 1/12th almost every weekend but I'm ready to trade the Paragon for some 30%.

Ralph

I've never used his break-in service but his modded engines are strong. I always break-in my own engines and the new Ninjas are a lot easier...or maybe I just got used to doing it.

Also, the ceramic bearings are some of the best in the country.

Bring your a$$ to the Vegas race and stop playing with those little cars. And, eff-u! It was a balmy 45 deg today.

Hey Ralph:

Sounds like a very smart decision. I hope you and sohl make it down to 301 this year with your 1/8ths. Steve didn't race 1/8th locally very much last year i think he was too busy posting on the net.

So it's like that, T? I haven't talked to you for a minute and you're takin shots.

You're right. I can't race at the same track for too long...I get bored easily. Bring your a$$ to Vegas and show & prove...and represent for the east coast playa.

LOL, Whoa, be easy steve! I can't make it to vegas in april, but I plan on making the nat's in Sept. I earn 2 weeks of vacation the 1st week of april but we have to post the dates we need and seniority takes precidence. In the meanwhile there's plenty of racing scheduled for this season in MD and I hope you come out and play. You seem to be the master of the internet and we don't see you at the track much. There's been some talk around the pits that, that mugen ass is wanted by the locals!

I'm not taking shot's, i'm just posting what is being said, that other guys don't have the balls to post.

Oh and as for vegas i've been a few times b4 and I'll be back.

We'll miss ya in Vegas, say sup to Em. I know you're holding it down with the j.o.b.

As for the locals, I'm at every big race. And, I'm also racing electric asphalt this year too. Can't do every club race especially when I'm traveling to races. I think you just want some playa. Plenty to go around.

I got a new C6 last season and broke it in just as I had all my other six or seven .21 engines I currently have..... a few JP's and mostly REX 321P's. At less than a gallon the piston shattered at the pin boss. I took the set to the Nats in Cincy and showed Murnan just to see what he thought. He was not fond of the engine to begin with and just seeing the damage on mine he was even more convinced.... the piston is paper thin.

Anyways.... the engine was sent to RB for inspection and they replaced the P/S set due to manufacturing defect, but did not give me a new rod. I bought a rod on my own and sold the engine with all new internals. I appreciate the customer service from RB, but won't get another C6 due to poor material conditions of the piston.

Many here suggest the Ninja- I may well get one for next year to try as well, but personally I have a hard time outdriving my 321P's
Cdelong,

I bought that C6 from you as a great deal. Honestly, the engine has over 2 gallons of fuel through it and still running strong. I will say that the stock shimming was WAYYYYYYYYY off and needed quite a bit to keep it from poppin plugs.

Anyways, that same motor gave me my fastest times on the track lately. Maybe you just had bad luck overall with it initially. I will agree with what someone else posted that it is a little light on the bottom compared to the Plus 21-3 that I bought from Scott Fisher. That thing just rocks! But it sits waiting for the next big race.

I plan to make it to vegas for the Nats. The last time i've been it was for the paris race a couple years ago. Vegas is always a blast.

As for me wanting some, that's a fact!! (i'm not the only one last I heard) But it seams as though you didn't run your 1/8th much last year. All that mugen info that you have (and sparingly let out) let's see if you can walk it like you talk it on the net! Playa!

I know I got that fire!
