Once again this year Mount Pleasant will be having monthly carpet races. For those who didn't get a chance to come down you shold try to this year. Just ask T3RC (Scott), him and his buddies had fun. Legend, Pan car (stock/mod), Buggy (mod/maybe stock?), Truck (stock/mod), Bolink Sprint cars, other classes w/ atleast three entries. As soon as I get a flyer, I will post a link to it here. I am going to try and get into the UP to race a couple of times this winter, just seems that things never work out. Where is everyone racing up there?
Thanks
Jake

Hmmm.....that would be fun! I do recognize your name from the old board. I stayed on top of things on that thread, didn't post much, but it really does sound you like you guys have a ball up there. Scott (T3RC1) keeps trying to get me to come up. And this year it just might happen!

Mel, Have you ever raced in Mount Pleasant? I think there is a guy who raced a black stadium truck in the mod truck class named Mel (he was darn FAST too!) Is that you?
Thanks

Yeah I really would like to come. Is there a buggy class at all? I have a truck that I culd run in either stock/mod but my buddy who might come does not have a truck. He only has a XX (Kinwald) and a Legend.

Also what hotels are there up in the Soo? Rates should be decent, it is "off season" afterall.

Hmmm....maybe you should run Legend too......

Thanks!
Jake

Motel 6 huh? Thats cool. Heres the scoop, if he comes (not sure yet) he might run my truck. I just a purchased a pan car, couple years old but I just want to have fun, the part that sucks is that I have to break my packs apart for 4 cell. Not used to 4-cell, less punch? less speed? how important is gearing?
Thanks!

Wigman,
No I don't have directions, getting to the Soo is no problem, I can do that with out a map, in fact I did it about a month ago! What I will need is street directions. Is it at a school or what? Well let me know, my e-mail address is:

[email protected]

If I haven heard from you by like Wed or something, I'll pull your number out of the post on on-reaod racing and give you a call. Can't wait to get up there!

One more quesion: Is it all right if I bring some track flyers up there to hand out on the events here in Mount Pleasant?

Thanks!
Jake

Scott,

Well I said last year that I would make it up and I didn 't, but this time it really looks like it is going to happen. Can't wait to race against some you guys. Just go easy on me though, haven't run a pan car since I was about 12. Wow seven years ago...after turning 21 friday,
that makes me feel old.

Looking forward to seeing you guys too. Scott, do you know how to get the track?
I'm pretty sure that i will be staying in the Holiday Inn Express. Where do you guys stay?
Thanks for the directions,
Jake

PS I e-mailed Wigman, and asked for directions on here, is any other way to get a hold of him?

Well I foung a website for Kewadin Casinos as well as the Big Bear Arena. According to the addresses on their sites they aren't across the street form each other.


If it is for sure in the Big Bear Arena then I will just get directions to that and not worry about it....
Thanks

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size="2">Originally posted by WIGMAN:
Foams in mod truck is o.k. but stock HAS TO USE RUBBER. Jake, do you run losi or ass. if it's losi I should have an extra set of strikers that you can use in stock, the losi on-road tires most likely won't hook up on this carpet. I e-mailed you directions, sorry i didn't do it sooner. by the way your hotel will be off the second soo exit(holiday inn express). it is right off the highway.
</font>

Cool thanks Wigman! I run stock here in Mount Pleasant and use the losi's. ( I run a XXXT) If I souce them they get so sticky the the carpet fuzz will stick to them.

You said something about wanting me to bring my buggy, I just remebered, I don't have foams or even street tires for it.....Might be able to scrounge up some slicks? Would that work?
Thanks
Jake

Wanted to let everyone know that I got home safe, rained, the whole way...... I'm sure that it did for Mel and his crew as well.

I can honestly say that I was very happy with the race/strucutre/organization. Wigman, I WILL BE BACK! I had fun and for running a new car for the first time and a new track I'm happy with how I did.

Mel, Casey and Joel, good to finally put a face to a name, Hopefully some of you guys can make it to Mount Pleasant this year! (Mel already dominates mod truck down here!) Scott, as always good see you and gang, and Casey, I got a question for you. If your the "Pro Match" man, how did I beat you? LoL.
You'll just have to come to Mount Pleasant and prove me wrong!

Thanks for the good time guys!
Jake

Had a good time, the drive made for a long day, but I know that I was not the only one so I won't complain any more.
I was happy with the car, and don't worry Mel. I will figure out what size the spur is, 'cause I'm gonna buy a new one! Going 64 pitch, and a Pro-Match MVP will soon be on the way as well! Where should I start gearing wise for Mount Pleasant with 6 cell and an MVP? 64 pitch (as well as pan cars) are a whole new ball game to me! I like them though. No push, they don't roll and they dont spin out. I let Matt drive for a few laps (the other person with me) who is used to Legend and racing offroad. He didn't know what to do with a car that turned! All in all it was fun and I like the new (old) car!

Joel, didn't get a chance to see your XXX-T. Your post was a bit confusing, what were you trying to say with the shock towers? Mount Pleasants dates are in the middle of this thread, first message on page two.

Thanks for everything guys!
Jake

Mel, I really appreciate you letting me run your motor, it helped A LOT! Thanks man!
