No I had family stuff to do, I dont think I'm going to be able to run it anymore untill sat.
But I'm Planning on showing up at scotts around noon, and spending as much time as I can breaking it in and getting use to it so I can crash it all up on sun....

Scott you never know I might run. Ive got work I need to do to the buggy but its a matter of finding time. I took off on Friday but I need to get my Harley out to clean and get running. Someone is interested in buying it so I really need to do that. I guess we will see.

I think Rodney is out of town. Thats why he is being so quite.

292 --- How about if we try to organize it so one month we go there and the next you guys come up here? That way the driving time and gas is a minimum for everyone? In October Joe is planning a race at the county track and a number of us plan on going to it -- how about if we all sit down and discuss a race schedule then?

Scott if I can change the clutchbell and rebuild the shocks I will bring it out on Saturday to actually put in some laps on your track. If I get to do all that I might run on Sunday.

Kevin -- when we ran your buggy on Sunday in Amherst did we ruin the items that you need to work on? If so I'll be glad to replace them.

What does everyone think of the 1 and 1 race with the folks down in Amherst?

Kevin -- if I can get our back up buggy finished thru the tuning process -- I'll have a 2nd buggy you can use too. I haven't heard from Matt - so I guess he is not going to be there this weekend. I do know that he is in college now - so he is probably very busy with school work.

Joel, you guys didnt hurt a thing. Ive got a 15t clutchbell on that motor that I took out of the Jammin and put in the Xray. It was fine in the Jammin on Scotts old layout but the Xray is geared much higher than everything else. I need to put a 13t on it and just do a maintenance rebuild on the shocks. Plus clean the thing which was dirty before Amanda drove it. Just normal stuff but thanks for the offer.

Scott, thanks but I guess it comes down more to what kind of mood Im in and if today is a sign of the weekend I doubt I will run anything. To much crap coming down on me!

Kevin - I think that I have a couple of 14t sitting around my shop -- if you want you can have one of those to see if you need to go down one or two teeth.

Steven -- Saturday is for track work and some engine tuning - probably no real running on Saturday --- Sunday is the day. Hope that we get several people running.

Hey Matt -- if I can get my back-up buggy running you are welcome to use one of my buggies on Sunday if you want to race. Let me know so I can prepare other wise I'll only bring one buggy with me.
Thanks for the offer! But with some expenses flying around my parents dont want me to race...till whenever. *cry*

Gonna try and inspect the damage to my engine today, I might post some pics later...

Joel, that picco motor looked good when you got it tuned right! Hope to see that one running tomorrow. It might be a strong contender!


What's the difference from a Force 26 motor and a Force 28?

ED, We found your body washer in the grass today... (PS. I'm the one that had the blue shirt on..) I think Allen has it.


I know it's like .02 CM or something, but I was wondering if it was faster or not.. Things like that..

I'm beat. Not sure if I show up tomorrow. Too much maintenance, not enough stuff in good order.
Anyhow, the Tiltyard was fun as usual. It was a small race with maybe 20 buggies. Finished 5'th in the B-main.

Ran the SP1 w/ MAC in the 2 first qualifiers. Stalled and ran incosistent in Q1. Electrical trouble in Q2. Put the trusty Kanai III in Q3 and the B-main and did OK. The OS is getting really worn but ran OK'ish.
B-main was hell. Stalled at every pitstop and lost probably 2 or 3 laps on that alone. Flamed out a few times but got it runing again.

Overall The Kanai III handled better and was easier to drive. The 777 is still a bit loose in the high sped corners off power. The old buggy was planted. All in all a fairly relaxed day and I had fun.
Eddie - there were only 3 or 4 MT running so you would probably have been bored.

I guess that's what to expect when putting my stuff together between 1 and 2AM in the morning after an evening in the bar.

5th in the B-Main doesn't sound too bad, if your cars weren't working properly..

Good luck to everyone today. I'll be there.

Hey All --- I had a blast today -- so did Manders. Good racing by all.

We can't be there next week - so I'll see you in 2 weeks.

Once again Scott - thanks for the food and trophies - it was a great day. I didn't get a chance to say thank you to Doris - so if you would - please extend our thanks to her for cooking the food and setting it up and all the clean up etc...

Great job to Tyler! 4 races, and into the A Main. 3 trophies. That kid is good.

Great job to everyone else, too. Joel, is this your first A-Main without bumping up from the B?



Rodney, you missed a great race today.


Ed, you were running great in the B-Main there for a while!!! I had thoughts of you making the A main.


Anyways, congratulations to everyone today.
