Alright! The wild-eyed pistol-waving Lebanese has me cornered... I gotta go now. I seem to have the weekend free at the moment, gotta start reviving the batteries, pull off the dry rotted slicks and blow the dust off the 1973 Mosler LTD Brougham Crown Victoria with the Radial Tuned Suspension.
Hmmm... my vote? W.W.P.D.? (What Would Putin Do?) GT Open!
Gotta go, my arm itches...

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.14, 07:03 AM

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.17, 02:16 PM
OK the poles are closed, don't come crying to me because you wanted to run F-1, but you did not vote. :mad:

The drivers list is up, we already have a good amount of drivers and it still early. :D

There are a lot of drivers that have not signed up, but I know they are coming. :eek:

Do not forget to bring your !/10 scale cars (I will reminding you of this often) and race with some of the locals on Sunday. :cool:
We had a good crowd this past Sunday. ;)

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.18, 07:27 AM

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.20, 07:25 AM
OK you guys from up north that wanted to come to the PN Regionals but didn't, here is your chance to get some good racing in. :eek:

The drivers list is growing this far in advance, it will be a very nice turn out. :D

By that time it will be cold up there, so come down and enjoy the sunny south. :cool:

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.21, 07:47 AM
Don't forget guys bring your 1/10 scale junk and race with us on Sunday, the crowd is growing each week. :D
Just think two days of racing in one trip. :)
Landon says he will have us done about 5:30pm. ;)

mleemor60
2013.09.21, 08:05 AM
5:30? Race day? Or Sunday?

mleemor60
2013.09.22, 09:51 AM
Anyone? Anyone? Yes? No? Maybe?

chad508
2013.09.22, 10:50 AM
I would say Sunday as we have never finished a cc race before 530.

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.22, 05:41 PM
Mike....Sorry for the delay, but it would be Sunday and we are usually finished by 5:00. :D
But!!!!!!!!! I am sure if there is interest after the mini z race and there is enough people that would like to run, I am sure LT would be game. :eek:
Chad is correct, the mini z race will most likely not be over by 5:30.

mleemor60
2013.09.22, 07:21 PM
Not staying over after the big race so was just trying to guesstimate departure times. Thanks Andy.

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.23, 07:58 AM
Mike....We normally finish around 6:30pm. :)
Will Cade be coming with you? :cool:

mleemor60
2013.09.23, 10:15 PM
Would have to say no.

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.24, 09:19 AM
Sorry to hear that. :(

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.26, 11:38 AM
You guys better bring some momo, if Landon does the layout like he says he is, it is going to be fassssssst. :eek:
It will give you guys a chance to shake the cob webs off those mod motors. :)
Tell your fellow racers to get signed up. :D
And again don't forget about 1/10 scale on Sunday. ;)

dwight
2013.09.27, 02:11 AM

Daddy Rabbit
2013.09.27, 07:42 AM

OK Guys, LET's start the week off right with some sign ups. :)
Dwight see if you can get some of your crew to come with you, MB is beautiful and affordable this time of year. ;)

Daddy Rabbit
2013.10.13, 07:29 PM
Well yesterday was a big success with the 1/10 race, we had 37 drivers and 53 entrees. But now it is time to get ready for this race. :eek:
LET's make this as successful as yesterday. :)
If you know that someone is coming, but has not signed up, let me know.:cool:

Sammich
2013.10.14, 10:44 AM

2013.10.16, 08:58 AM
Yes, everyone but me, voted for GT not F-1. :mad: lol

Daddy Rabbit
2013.10.16, 10:33 AM
You mean to run two different bodies with one body clip on the same chassis? :confused:
I think there are few out there that you can do that with, but not with can am being one of them. :o
Maybe someone out here can help you on this one. :cool:

chad508
2013.10.16, 01:28 PM
Changing the body clip won't take but a minute. I would run what ever you want. I'm running lexan pan so I will have to swap clips as well.

Sammich
2013.10.16, 01:48 PM
this is true...need to switch my screws to regular phillips from allen and the wheels to plus 2 up front, nothing wrong w/ more steering

Daddy Rabbit
2013.10.23, 06:43 AM
OK you guys at High Speed, please talk it up tomorrow night, I know there are some guys that are coming but are not on the list. :(

And don't forget to bring your 1/10 scale Buggies and SCT's and race with us on Sunday. :)

Two races in one trip, "WHAT A DEAL". :eek:

Daddy Rabbit

It's a surprise.

mleemor60
2013.10.30, 05:57 PM
To your group as much as ours I would bet. How many whoop-de-do's and table tops?

Daddy Rabbit
2013.10.31, 07:58 AM

We will be running carpet, the track was not bad the other night, considering we have not run on it much since the regionals (if you want to call it that) lol. :o
I think you can expect more change than normal in traction from Friday practice to Saturday mains, but the track will be fast.:eek:
You will see some tight racing, especially in 70t.:D
Pedro, looking forward to racing with you again. :)

Daddy Rabbit
2013.10.31, 08:04 AM

LT will be changing the track next week, it is a little boring right now. :(
It will be on the flat, if you get my drift, no elevation changes. :rolleyes:
The infield should be pretty interesting, but the straights will be lightning fast (for some). :mad:

mleemor60
2013.10.31, 09:59 AM
Hark!! He speaks icily yet in riddles. Doth he suggest we come forth clad in chains to protect us from the lightening strike of the fangless Viper?

Bubble bubble, toil and trouble. The brew thickens as it is stirred to an overcooked finish that will stand a fork erect.

2013.11.01, 11:40 AM
Too much Turner Classic Movies and Net Flix. Gotta love the "classics"

Daddy Rabbit
2013.11.02, 07:23 AM
Mike....My classics would not be until the late 60's or early 70's, we did not have TV before then and I did not get to go to movies before then. :rolleyes:
"Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and the like are my classics. :)
Our entertainment was fishing and going to the river cabin, where we did not have running water and electricity until the late 50's. :D

mleemor60
2013.11.02, 07:44 AM
You should get more nostalgic and check out all the Errol Flyn classics.

In the mid sixties I was already visiting exotic foreign lands for my Government. It was there that I first saw Gone With the Wind in Japanese with English sub titles. "Ol Mammy" was a real hoot in that language. They all were. I laughed like mad while my buddy cried. Turned out he was from Atlanta.

No running water in the cabin? How quaint. We didn't have indoor plumbing on the farm at all let alone a nice "cushy" get away cabin on the river. When we got away for a vacation it was tent camping. That is why, today, my idea of camping is a minimum class"A" coach with two airs and a dish. Know what I mean, Vern?

Daddy Rabbit
2013.11.02, 09:34 AM
I know what you mean, but I have to have 3 airs and a dish. lol:D
Oh and by the way, it was not cushy. lol

mleemor60
2013.11.02, 09:43 AM
Did it have a roof? With shingles? Could yo touch the inside walls and not cause a sweat through leak when it rained? Did you have to go outside to build the fire? Thats what I thought. Cushy!!

Daddy Rabbit
2013.11.02, 11:41 AM
Cushy, for sure. :)

What a showing. :D

mleemor60
2013.11.10, 06:04 AM
It was a great event and it was especially good to see a face from the past wander in and visit for a while. Matt Ward is off to bigger(not necessarily better) things but seems to have kept up with what has been going on. Great to see him and his better half. He has been missed.

Carpet prooves to be a worthy surface despite a couple of handling quirks and is a hoot and a half to race on. A little more realism as you can slide the cars around without sacrificing overall control. Great fun. The only foam needed is a more workable rail system and some landscaping.

Great job Thompson family. Keep it up but keep it small(scale). There might be more money in the clod hoppers but your light bulb expense will certainly get out of controll based on some of the ceiling thumpers I observed.

Dwight can fill everybody in from the Remnant group or if you are a Kool-aid drinker you can visit the other social media site.

2013.11.10, 12:32 PM
You know, don't you? The one with the first letter of the universal adjective in white inside a blue box. Watch for the video's. Wherever they get posted. Hopefully here. There was some real good close racing in all the classes.

Can say that the LeviteZer front end works fantastic on the rug as well as everywhere else.

hrdrvr
2013.11.10, 10:55 PM
I'll have podium pictures, results, and videos up tomorrow! There was some awesome racing, and a new camera caught the action better than ever! I hope YouTube doesn't squash the quality. They are uploading now!

Sammich
2013.11.11, 08:55 AM
This was of my top 3 favorite layouts since i've started racing...loved the embankments.

Thanks to all the racers who came and supported LGR, without you guys there would be no LGR. :o

Sorry to say that this may have been my last Mini Z race until next November. :(
All you guys will be missed. :o

mleemor60
2013.11.12, 09:16 AM
Make sure you have a couple packed in the coach. A radio at least. When you get around Chicago or out in the Salt lake area you can drop in on Greg or Brian and be treated like royalty if you want to race with them. I didn't have time to do it in Salt Lake but I did in Chicago. Great time. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

While you roam the Country we will do our best to help Sarah keep him on task and on track so that when you return it will be at least as much of a going concern as it is now.

I must say that Utah is the most picturesque state,overall, that I have ever been in and I can honestly say I have been in all 50. From the Salt Flats (gotta try the Salt Flats Cafe) back through Salt Lake(visit Mormon Disney as they call it) down to Bryce Canyon and Zion plus Monument Valley then over to the Grand Canyon. You will need about a month just for what I have mentioned here.

Once you get close contact Briankstan on the forum and let him know you are in the area. He can show you some good places to eat. That I showed him.

Have a great time. You don't know how much your steadying hand will be missed.
I'm still 0 for all against you so don't get too rusty.

Bryan....I had a blast the other day, renewed my interest in the mini's. :D
You ran very well, keep it up and keep people interested in the mini's, you may have to be the man to do it. :eek:

hopefully i'll get to see you before you roll out, if not yall definitely be safe and enjoy!

glad your interests were repiqued...kind of lonely practicing out there by myself w/ my beater bodies lol. i'll keep trying to keep the mini z dream alive, but it might be a losing battle around here with buggies and SCT taking over

Bryan. We are thinking of taking one of our regular weekly events and making a saturday show every month so those of you that don't want to join the bulb busters can have a place to race and friends to do it with.

Thanks to all the guys at LGR for a fun race weekend! Great layout and fast racers. Good to run with the High Speed guys again too, I don't get to race there much either nowadays. Thanks Landon, Sarah, Daddy and Mrs. Rabbit for being such hospitable hosts. I really hope you guys don't let the off-road track run right over the on-road so that we can have more Mini-Z events in the future.

I'm not going to give up Mini-Z racing guys, and as long as I keep having people show up to events, I will keep hosting them. I had fun this weekend, and really enjoyed getting back to some small scale on road, after a couple of months of nothing but buggy racing. It was very rewarding, and I think sharpened my skills a bit.

We really are struggling locally to get people interested in the little cars, but we had a ton of people watching this event, and there has already been more than a handful of people come ask about racing with us. The prospect of new Z racers is very exciting, and something we haven't had much of in recent months. I fear for where the scale as a whole is heading, especially in our part of the country, but I will continue to try and promote it, and take part as much as I can!

What ever path we take, this past weekend, was an awesome step in that path. I had a great time running with old friends, and even managed to squeak a win out in the Can Am class. Rodney took the title in style, almost completing the perfect score for the second year in a row. This time he fell three points short with 8 wins and a second for his final tally. By taking second in this event (only two points behind Rodney), I managed to make up ground on Chad, and tied him for second. The tie breaker is overall score (points before drops), in which Chad beat me on since I missed the third race. That puts him in second and me in third. Wade took fourth, with Albert and Marwan taking fifth and sixth. I will get the full run down in a postable format, and get it on the site as quickly as possible. Sarah is working on that as I type.

Thanks to all who came out this year and supported the Cup! It really is a cool thing we have going on bringing people from multiple clubs together for great fun and awesome competition. We really need to get the Cups updated. The HSH crew, and especially Rodney have put a lot of effort into the results they have achieved and it's not right that we haven't kept up with it. If some one can get the Cup down to me, I will make sure we get the engravings up to date.

I've got to get the pictures onto photobucket so I can get them uploaded here. In the mean time, here are the videos from the mains.

Can Am 1 A Main (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_FyPcF6nDU)

A couple of highlights for me:
Coming into the first A Main, the GT1 class, I knew I wasn;t going ot be able to touch Rodney. I was just hoping to be able to fend off Wade, and try anything I could to get in front of Chad and stay there. On the squared off corner, I ran a little wide. I managed to squeak past cutting the dots to take second form him. It was very obvious that he was quicker than me, and it was all I could do to hold him behind me. You can see Wade catch up and lose ground between mistakes as well. I just stayed clean, and tight enough that Chad's relentless atacks finally caught him out. Once he had to race Wade, I got away for a pretty easy last few minutes while Rodney concentrated on putting us all a lap down.

In GT2, I felt like I had the 5th best car. I just managed a slightly better run than Josh, just behind Terry, and far behind them uch quicker Rodney and Wade. Josh overtook me early, and we had some very interesting laps trading positions. The racing was clean and very fun, just frustrating because I didn't have a good motor draw, and could not attack. I just held patient until finally he made a big enough mistake for me to get by. Luckily for me Terry made a mistake two more corners up the track, and I went from 5 to 3 in the center part of the track. I ran a smooth race and didn't fall under the pressures of either of their attacks to hold on to third.

Can Am should be the most rewarding. The car was awesome, so for me, the race was a little boring. I fended of Rodney form the start, but he made an aggressive move on the second run down the straight and hit the inside wall giving me some space. He made his way back to second, but my car was too strong, and I easily finished first. I followed him for the last part of the race very closely, but held back instead of lapping him in the end, so I wouldn't disrupt the race between he and Chad for second. The car was a blast to drive. Despite holding back at the end of the race, that car put down the fastest run in the mains, the fastest qualifying time, and the fastest hot lap. My only regret is not running it in the GT1 race with the 350Z body. I might have had a chance to go after Rodney for victory. Coulda, woulda, shoulda.....

hopefully i can look into lightening up my chassis so i can be more competitive in the stock class next time around...picking a good motor will be the next task, but lightening my chassis is my main goal

thanks alot too to Landon helping me out a ton w/ getting my car ready for the race, i know i slowed up the race a good bit w/ my troubles, hopefully next time i'll be ready to go with no issues :)

i know i said last year i'll i'd be more competitive this year, well i'm hoping next year is my year to be in the top 10 in standings and drake suprised me with his cleaner driving this year, he's really progressed alot i've seen.

Yes. My hat is off to Drake as well. Seems the only person that he consistently has difficulty with is his team owner.

Thank you to the Thompsons and the SC guys for putting on a great CC4 event and thanks to all that made the whole series work at HSH and LGR this year. I think this was the first year that I was able to complete in all the cup races, mainly because I cut back on weekly club racing, and I really enjoyed it. I'm really happy with my final standing considering I had no practice in between and I look forward to next year.

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All!
