That may be true Jim, BUT - if I can race him on a certain track, one specific lane....

Remember, I'm a one track, one lane poney!

OK, OK, OK.... This is going to be a great series. We ran on my track and my car wasn't the fastest. It was fast, but not fast enough.

We had some tech issues that we are still working out. Details to follow soon.

I'm guessin' Paul mixed magnet filings in with his JB Weld. You know he needs all the help he can get.

Default Tech Day Pictures

I did body and chassis pictures of all of the cars. I will have them all edited and posted in a day or two. There will be a seperate Concours thread so you can vote for your favorite.

No J-B Weld this time around, I went with a lump of black modelling clay. Looks just like ... oh never mind, but you couldn't easily hide magnetic filings in it.

My guess is that the only way to get the wheels and tires under the body on that Moby Dick car was by sticking it in a vice!

Why does that track look familiar?
Oh yeah, I do believe I have raced there recently!

Ray, Rich D, Wayne, and myself spent the day teching cars, taking pictures, and running qualifying. Not sure how much qualifying will matter because of the number of cars but overall, we got a nice field.

NSR tires strike the first blow as they were fastest overall.

Very happy to see my Yellow 2002 and AAW 917 in the fold, along with Phil's cars. I can see why Mike was making noises in one of the threads about time for a new track. He seems to be driving now on autopilot, just listening to the cars go round...no need to look..
