Ok, I've received our bodies for this event (thanks Ray!). Al and Steve are going to be their own team, who else is coming?

So far it's me, Dave and Quinny... not sure if anyone else wants to come on in with us so we can get another team going.

Quinny... if you want to paint one of these up, it's at my place if you want to pick it up. LMK

As far as our own Club Race for this month... I'm open to suggestions. I would prefer it to be towards the end of the month but Easter Sunday is the 31st. Not sure if you guys just want to run a Friday night, or maybe even a Saturday night? Post up your preferences!

look forward to seeing you guys again.

best person to contact for the local area would be mike keely. i'm a good hour away from the track myself.

just remember, no shaving the body, all bits must be used with exception of the front tow hook. i've already lost one :rolleyes: so unless your a completest, don't bother with it. i'm wrapping up painting the 3rd team car for remnant members this week. in order to get that many done in the time i have available, i went with a standard format and changed up the colors selected by the team; red, yellow and green. not as fancy as i would normally do them but time is precious these days and not getting a lot of it to do fun stuff.

Hell of a job on that 599! That paint is so amazing it makes it look just like an old 84 Lebaron! :D:D:D (please don't fix those pics!) Are those PN wire wheel covers?

I might bug Jimmy to come with us... I'm sure he'd like a break from his three kids!

Ed.....You know if you can drive to MD, if you drive just a little further you would be in MB, SC. lol:D Just kidding.:cool:
Miss you guys down here in Myrtle Beach, we are having a pretty good size event tomorrow.:D
Take care.:)

I know... if it was on Sunday, maybe I'd just slip something in everyone's drink for the "ride home" and they'd wake up in MB! ;)

Miss yall too! Landon's shop looks amazing and the carpet option should really help him out too! Mini-Zs are great but other scales will help with the sales numbers I'm sure! A well lit drift car class running round that rug would surely pull a crowd into the store, they are much more theatrical than regular racers.

Meet up would be good, but I'm not sure it's necessary... I figured we'd be using my car and controller for the event. I know I can usually drive my own cars just fine, you (Quinn) should have no problem because I'm pretty sure if I installed a 130 motor into an actual turd, you would still have a good race. Dave is going to be the one to fine tune it anyways and we'll just adapt.

There is a specific chassis I have in mind already... I will update you guys when I get it just right.

I think we are either rolling down in my MPV or my RAV. Guess we'll meet at my place around 7ish?

I made the mistake of driving that car around with Greg when everyone else left that day... It's been calling my name too!

So, both of my 02s have nearly identical setups to that car Larry, do you think the 1 degree lower PN arms are the reason why that car is so stable? I've made a few tweaks here and there on both of my a-arm 02s to see if I can match it's driving characteristics, haven't had a chance to drive them yet though.

Honestly, I'd like to buy it but I don't want to take the chance away from one of my members. Maybe we could work a deal Quinn to get you up to 2.4 status? ;)

To be honest, i think i have only 1 03 with the 1 degree lower arm...but its worth a shot. I might have spares?
The 02 is there for who ever takes it. Probably have another 02 and probably could get an 03 togeter too.;):D

Is he doing all of the detail work too, like the lights, the vents, the pins? Just curious if I'll need to bring my sharpies. Also... what kind of paint does he use?
