Re: This is the Sportsman page.

I really appreciate the racers turning out for a race and it is a good time. Also thanks for taking care of that braid issue. I need to replace the braid, I know I have said that before!

Re: This is the Sportsman page.

Presidential Inauguration? I always thought that was the 20th...

Or maybe the date for the dissemination of the Pfizer COVID vaccine?

Re: This is the Sportsman page.

I'm guessing Doc could use a few hours with Mavis Beacon.  ;-)

Who is Mavis Beacon? Slot racer? Running for president? A hot rodder? What??

Re: This is the Sportsman page.

Been there, done that.

The track that Rico now has, I was painting it in the garage.  Lay tape over the rails, spray the track and remove the tape.

Most of the way down the main straight and almost finished I went to peel off the tape.  No tape...

Decided I should open the garage door before any more spraying.

Re: This is the Sportsman page.

I was looking forward to racing today. I resoldered my Sportsman chassis and narrowed the front axle some more along with a new motor. I also transformed my truck from a 4x4 to a low rider in an effort to make it handle better. I hadn’t noticed how high the chassis rode but thanks to Bill for pointing it out. Sadly a change in plans has made it difficult for me to make it today

Race cars are neither beautiful nor ugly. They become beautiful when they win.

Re: This is the Sportsman page.

Yes, there was a scheduled race yesterday, but not enough showed up to have one! So we tweaked and practiced and drank coffee, ate cookies etc and BS'd and had a good time any way.

The next race is scheduled for Dec. 5th. We will see what happens then!

Maybe I can get Bill to post a picture I sent him last night.

Re: This is the Sportsman page.

It sure was good to see Gearloose back!

The race for me was fun, but my results were something much less than spectacular!

Here's a couple photos I took:
