Keith Tanaka: The Racer Handicaps and Lap Differential charts have been updated (see above threads for latest charts). Jan 14, 2019 17:37:33 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Happy New Year everyone! Jan 1, 2019 12:25:39 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: The race report for Sunday's races at BPR has been posted to our Smugmug website (see above for link to report). Dec 31, 2018 20:00:24 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Sunday's races were the last for 2018. Gonzo tied his new NASCAR total lap record with 251 laps. A nice turnout on the day before New Year's Eve. Race report will be posted later today. Dec 31, 2018 12:29:45 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Happy Holidays everyone. Let's race again on Sunday, Dec. 30th. Dec 23, 2018 19:32:11 GMT -8
timneja: Merry Christmas to ALL hard body Crew!!! Especially Keith and Gonzo who take such good care of this little hobby for all of us to enjoy!!! And a HAPPY NEW YEAR TOO!! Dec 22, 2018 9:56:17 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Sunday's D3 Hardbody race report has been posted at our Smugmug website (see above for link to race report). Dec 17, 2018 20:48:07 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Several regulars missing but another good turnout of D3 hardbody racers at BPR for December's races. Plenty of fast, close, fun racing. A new total lap record was set. Race report will be posted tomorrow (Monday). Dec 17, 2018 1:02:54 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I received the 2019 D3 Hardbody calendars today. I'll have them at BPR this Sunday for those who ordered one. Dec 13, 2018 12:21:31 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: The 2019 D3 Hardbody calendars have been ordered. Hopefully, I will receive them in time for our Dec. 16th races.
Dec 4, 2018 23:05:07 GMT -8
timneja: The TSR motor is still available through Electric Dreams-- Scott has a large supply of them! Dec 2, 2018 20:17:27 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: We now have 15 hardbody racers reserving their copy of the 2019 D3 Hardbody Racing calendar. Anyone else want to reserve their copy? Deadline is Monday, Dec. 3rd to reserve your copy. Dec 1, 2018 13:50:48 GMT -8 *
Keith Tanaka: Tim, BPR usually carries the 1/4" angle brass. Dec 1, 2018 13:48:42 GMT -8
tw: Suggestions on how to get the decals off the paper to the cars. ( Water decals) Having trouble not ripping them. Thanks, TW Dec 1, 2018 6:45:50 GMT -8
tw: 1/4" Angled Brass , where can I get some. Or Is this a ordered item only. Can have Debbie order it but looking for it now. Thanks, TW Dec 1, 2018 6:26:57 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: I'll be ordering the 2019 D3 Hardbody calendars on Dec. 4th. Only 10 copies are being ordered (4 are already taken/reserved). To reserve a copy, let me know before the 4th (see above for info). Nov 29, 2018 16:08:06 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Unfortunately, the Retro Hawk motor has not been consistent in performance from one batch to another. The TSR D3 motor (which is no longer in production) was by far the most consistent sealed motor, batch by batch. Nov 27, 2018 0:56:37 GMT -8
Keith Tanaka: Retro Hawk is preferred since the Falcon 7 and TSR D3 motors are either in short supply or no longer available. The Retro Hawk also lasts longer (if it has the harder motor brushes). Nov 26, 2018 13:23:47 GMT -8
