Lar- You wouldnt by any chance still have that body would you?
07-06-2004, 05:18 PM
Eddy, I still have one, the other one I painted and sent it out.
07-06-2004, 09:53 PM
Lar- Will you paint it however you want to?.. But i just want the colors to be black and florescent yellow and if you could put the # 3's on it that would be great too. If you dont get it done this week.. thats fine just let me know and ill square up with you whenever.
Eric- Are you gonna make it this week?
07-07-2004, 10:28 AM
Ok, I will see what I can do. Black and yellow!
07-07-2004, 01:21 PM
Yea i dunno... i just like the black because you cant see much and I just like the florescent yellow on there because of our TRC yellow wheels.. You could make the majority of the body florescent yellow if you want to.. just to make it different.
Do any of you guys prefer a certain brand of motor lathe?? I need a new one really bad but i want to make sure i get a really good one.
07-07-2004, 02:13 PM
just paint those nasty yellow wheels black. what is wrong with your lathe!
07-07-2004, 02:53 PM
HUDY!! They are the best. I had a Xipp mod lathe for a while & it was pretty good. Some guys have Cobra's that I have used & they're not too bad but I really like my Hudy the best out of all the ones that I have used. If you get one, the best buy is the Advanced model with carbide V-blocks.
07-07-2004, 03:02 PM
My lathe cuts like a meat grinder..
Thanks Brent... do you have any idea how much the Hudy lathes are??
07-07-2004, 03:10 PM
I gave you the wrong model. The one that you want is the "Tech" not the "Advanced". The "Tech" has a better design to keep things smooth. I think it's around $180.00 but it doesn't come with a bit. Hudy's diamond bit is around $90.00. But they are well worth it if you ask me.
07-07-2004, 05:51 PM
Eddie - BrentP is right the Hudy is the best out there. Get the diamond bit right away, it is worth the extra cost.
07-07-2004, 05:56 PM
Eddie - Can I borrow your Fantom dyno?
07-07-2004, 06:49 PM
Lee will have his at the track friday night.:thumbsup:
07-07-2004, 11:59 PM
07-08-2004, 10:10 AM
Brent- Dom has his dyno and i dont know what he did with it but everytime he says he will get it for you he never does.. I will try to get it from him today but im sure you'd have better luck getting Lee's.
07-08-2004, 12:45 PM
Eddie - What's Dom's e-mail.
07-11-2004, 03:36 PM

07-12-2004, 11:00 AM
Good racing Friday night, hope everybody shows this weekend. :thumbsup: :wave:
07-12-2004, 11:03 AM
Lar, Looks like you opened up a can on the young guns!!!
07-12-2004, 12:51 PM
Eddy let me win. The car was pretty good, changed one tire, and the motor. the car got faster every run. Thanks Eddy
how's your new track, sounds like the wildman has run on it.
07-12-2004, 12:54 PM
Kevin & Timmy have put some laps on it. For the most part it is very smooth, except in one spot but Kevin said that it isn't too bad. They ran some pretty good lap times from what I understand but they think that we will only go 51 or 52 laps in stock. It is quite a bit wider & a little longer. We'll know a lot more after this weekend.
07-12-2004, 01:52 PM
Lar, let me know about the body and ill come pick it up this week sometime if you want.
07-12-2004, 02:14 PM
I will let you know when I'm done. still want yellow and black.:tongue:
07-13-2004, 10:24 AM
Yea still want florescent yellow and black...:tongue: You can put more yellow than black on it if you want, just to make it different. It doesnt matter to me. I just figured that with it being those two colors, it would match the florescent yellow TRC wheels.
07-13-2004, 10:25 AM
You really should paint those ugly wheels Eddie. :roll:
07-13-2004, 10:29 AM
Yea yea.. i know but im just too lazy.. Im just worried about goin' fast not lookin' the best. But to tell you the truth i have a black and florescent yellow body now and the yellow wheels and it doesnt really look that bad.
07-13-2004, 12:24 PM
Eric, you running this week or what?? What happened last week??
07-13-2004, 05:19 PM
Brent R. are you racing this weekend?
07-13-2004, 07:42 PM
Not sure yet, I will know later this week, but it does not look good.
07-14-2004, 11:05 AM
Im not sure... but i think Eric is getting a little worried about the competition. :devil:
07-14-2004, 10:04 PM
Nope, Just reloading.........
07-14-2004, 10:17 PM

07-15-2004, 12:26 AM
Larry I can make your 2 day race as long as its a sat. sun. deal.And I am sure I can find some people to come up with me.Ill just rent a van and a trailer if alot of people want to come down.The more the better .
07-15-2004, 12:35 AM

07-15-2004, 10:50 PM
When is the 2-day race?
07-16-2004, 02:19 PM
Hey Larry, how long a trip was it when you came to St.Louis? Hours? I know the young guys sleep all the way.:)
Like Brent P said, I might make it a mini family vacation. My son has never seen the Rocky Mountains.
07-19-2004, 10:28 AM
Great racing on friday!! Track was a little bigger this week so the laps went down.
Sorry Scott, couldnt remember. Just had to go off memory and obviously mine isnt too good. :tongue:
07-19-2004, 11:32 AM
Hey MK, we are going to run it Labor Day weekend. Saturday Sept4. and Sunday Sept5 show. I'm going to ask the the motel closest to the track about a reduced rate for you guys, for some free promoh work. do you guys want to run, a day show or a night show on saturday? If we run a night show, everybody can practice all day if they want. :thumbsup: :cool: :wave:
07-19-2004, 11:51 AM
