Cars left Monday and made it there quick. Glad you like all the goodies. I may have accidently oiled your tires for you on the 4GO. Just an accident I assure you. I am prepping some cars for the NZ race now. Some are running very good, the new Snake car is not one of them.

My cars arrived home yesterday and I would like to say Thank You to all the sponsors. Thank You GTS for the break in block. I can't wait to use it, it's something I've been needing, and to Super Tires and to Jeff for the awesome resin body. And again Thanks Dave for hosting the race.

CONGRATS to ALL who won, Sorry I had to miss it. I had a family emergency come up, and like the old saying goes "when it rains it pours" as soon as we started recovering from that the "Race Shop" gets a plumbing issue (which I am still dealing with) where its taking on water.
Race shop is a mess, and breaking ground on the new race track has come to a starting over process.
I will make up for the lost donations at the next event, or Dave if you can PM me name and addresses I would still like to send somethings out to those who entered the race.
Hope things are going better now. Thanks for the offer Robert. All the racers received quite a few gifts after the last race and they are quite happy. I suggest you wait for the next event and send some items in for all the racers. The return shipping for all those racers including the overseas ones was well over 100.00. Racers are always happy and surprised to see what they get. The last race was very generous to all the racers. Hope you can join us for the next event.
Kiwi cars have all arrived back safe and sound along with a huge bag of goodies from Hairy Canary. Thank you Rick that was very kind. Also thanks to GTS for the break in blocks, Supertires and AJR for the other goodies. Thanks again!
Well its been a while,but congrats to all the racers and thanks Dave and all the sponsors. Purple Haze is a new build and obviously needs a wheelie bar. The last chassis under the Haze never needed one. This new build has a different tire and will not stay in the slot. Just goes to show how one minor change will alter these little devils and cause a grown man to have temper tantrums like a tooth cutting two year old.

Glad to hear from you Vince. I tried putting the tire back on the 57 Chevy and it did run better. I also think the taller tire lifted the rear causing it to move the traction magnets further from the track and causing it to pull the guide pin out of the groove.
