<-- Me. 54 and married to the current wife for over 21 years. One son Eric who will be 20 in May. When I'm not on this 'puter I work as an assistant machine operator at Graphic Packaging Int'l. Inc. owned by the Coors beer people. I've been there for over 34 years.
Boats, got around 8 of them right now.
Past toys include a motorcycle, dune buggy, bass boat and drag car. I've been doing something R/C for over 30 years but boats steady for the past 11.
Old shot of me as I don't have many as usually I'm the one behind the camera. My "little boy" is holding the TX getting ready to race his boat.

Ron I think that prop of yours on your avatar needs to spin a little faster if you want to win a race

When I first put it in there it was going the wrong way. One of the other Mod's fixed it for me. Sometimes it spins and other times it doesn't.

Yeah, that's the grey hanging out! I look fat(ter) in that shot also. It's an older shot from around 2003 at a race in Saginaw, MI.
My buggy was a Berrien 902 tube frame (90" wheel-base, 2-seater) shortback with a 1641 punched out to 1835cc's, dual carbs, mild cam and lots of chrome. It was street legal (kind of) but not really when running Goodyear Terra tires.

Its the p1sc.... I did everything I could to stay with the flat hood..Alot of boys run around here on the street with the cowls and they don't need them.. They have overplayed them for me so I wanted the other more stock look.. sure the motor breathing threw the exhaust and the constant whine doesn't help the stock effect.. neither does the Fiberglass doors, fenders, hood, trunk, and bumpers but hey you cant have it all I guess..
Indeed. Cool to see ya make some good power with the P1.... tried putting one on a 331 in my buddys mustang and it wouldnt make any power for ****ola. Love the F1R and up line though. Last season we were sponsored by Procharger...got more procharger hats and shirts then i know what to do with LOL!

You plan to upgrade to at least a D1 or D3R? Did a couple Bu's when i was workin at the chassis shop.... easy as all hell to make work.

Makes real good power... Just cruzing along around 30 to 40 I can mash it and shes an instant tire fryer with the older ET Streets 10.50x26.. Got the newer ET Streets now and there 275/50R15 still about a 26" dia tire.. I dont think I have more than 10 miles on those bad boys..

Theres always plans for more my friend...lol... You know how that goes.. Going to get the most out of her how she sits.. I know I can get the 10's but just need the track time.. After I feel I maxed her out its time for BIGGER Super and TUb the rear...

LOL that funny Off Topic in an Off Topic.


Well My name is Paul Bychowski I will be 40 on the 29th of this month. I am married my son just turned 21 on the 16th of January. I got the nick gooycheese or gooy about 6 years, was getting my hair braided for Halloween and teaching some friends how to make the "friendship bracelets" and my friends started calling me guru. that only last a little while then gooy seemed easier for them and then the taco bell dog said MMMmmmmmmmmm gooycheese and its been that way for a long time now. I have been using it as a screen name for everything for about the first 2 years I had the Internet I ran a opennap server (its a napster type of thing, at one time I was having over a million people a week connecting to my PC)but that was a long time ago. Now I just play with some RC boats, planes, helicopter and a motorcycle. I am self-employed, basically a floor person tile, hardwood stuff like that but also full bath and kitchen remodels and basement finishing, I have been doing this for about 4yrs now. before that I did alot of metal fab, welding light milling and light lathe but have used about every tool ya could think of for metal working. Well at this point I think I have given too much info already so I will say good night all, Its been a blast........................................Ohhhh hhhhh the red eyes didn't have nothing to do with the camera did they LOL



Paul


Ohhhhhh yeah I am a PS2 Game Junkie also
