Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
Tim: I been on vacation Gonz!! We'll have to try our Mini's together and see if I can keep up with ya!! Mine works ok--but you have to DRIVE it!! Sounds like yours is planted!! NICE!! Aug 25, 2015 14:01:33 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Gonzo's Mini handles so well that we just might have a Mini race someday. Aug 24, 2015 23:10:20 GMT -8
gonzalez: timmy boy where is ya?? Aug 24, 2015 19:20:03 GMT -8
gonzalez: i honestly didnt think it would handle that well.i was in shock.maybe somebody will build a bigger version of that design and see what happens.BUILD ON YOU HARDBODY RACERS.any ?s just ask me .no problema Aug 24, 2015 19:17:25 GMT -8
gonzalez: kieth what are you doing telling everybody my speed secrets?ill never tell you anything again ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.LLOOLL!!!!.thanks kieth for that post . very well done. i hope any and everybody gets some ideas for their builds. Aug 24, 2015 19:13:24 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Just posted photos of Gonzo's new Mini Cooper (see post above). His new Mini is very fast and handles extremely well for such a small, narrow car. Aug 22, 2015 22:18:41 GMT -8
Michael: And we missed you too big guy. Shortage of people to pick on. Aug 21, 2015 15:09:02 GMT -8
gonzalez: sorry i missed all that action.i should be there the 30th.looking foward to it Aug 20, 2015 22:16:29 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Just posted the race schedule for the Hardbody Nats above. Aug 18, 2015 23:06:39 GMT -8
craigg: Yes, Russsell may have been having a ball, but I wasn't amused by him purposely crashing me twice and trying a couple of other times. Aug 18, 2015 9:29:11 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Just posted the race report (above). Nice turnout especially since we had 5 or 6 regulars missing. It was a quiet, well mannered race day without Gonzo? Not really. Russell seemed to be having a ball with his huge '57 Chrysler taking up most of the track. Aug 17, 2015 20:53:57 GMT -8
Tim: New Jalopy and Chevelle!! NICE!! Aug 13, 2015 19:10:06 GMT -8
Michael: Finished a 65 Chevelle NASCAR. Hope it runs good. Looks pretty good. Aug 12, 2015 17:13:19 GMT -8
craigg: I'm thrashing to finish a new Jalopy for Sunday. Paint starting today. Aug 12, 2015 10:12:48 GMT -8
Michael: Starting to think about racing this weekend and it is only Tuesday. Aug 11, 2015 20:15:04 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Besides our monthly races on August 16th, we will have an extra hardbody race day on August 30th (5th Sunday in August). Good opportunity to prepare/test your Nats cars. Aug 10, 2015 14:14:56 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Tim, for WRC, .850" front and .900" rear tires will be ok. The chassis width has not been finalized yet, but 2.8" is ok, but cannot go beyond the bottom portion of the body. Body side panels cannot go beyond vertical. Aug 4, 2015 21:23:02 GMT -8 *
timneja: Well did the practice session go well?? I'm looking at my WRC car and thinking I"d like to build it. Do you think .850 and .900 will work for the tire sizes? I'll build the front so I can change it if need be. Whaddya think?? Aug 4, 2015 14:32:03 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Time to take some practice laps at BPR tomorrow. Aug 1, 2015 19:46:55 GMT -8
Tim: Soi .850 and .900---what about chassis width?? Jul 24, 2015 21:44:15 GMT -8
