Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Thanks Monty. It's looking like St Louis is a go for next week. I'll make my final decision by Sunday. It's a long haul but a great track. And hey they were nice to me there. That's where I got the best appearing award in 2019.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

We scaled the truck today. The way I set it in Houston ended up being almost neutral. It was 3lbs heavy on the drivers side. I usually set it 10 to 20 preloaded on the passenger side. I decided to leave it alone and play with shock adjustments instead. Hey it was predictable after the adjustment so I'm going with it.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Also I may or may not be in St Louis Thursday. I may be at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel Georgia. I have roll the dice due to weather conditions. I guess we'll see.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

It's about 100 miles more to Ga. Not that big of a deal on that. I think I'll make my decision by Tuesday. I wish I was a Weatherman! They get paid whether they are right or wrong. Lol

The scales at Houston read 3575lbs. These chassis scales read 3556lbs. The old chassis scales I used read 3590. The scales in St louis last year read 3550. So I don't know Monty lol. We put less than ten feet of Moly tubing with the braces so it didn't gain but 10-15lbs.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I knew I didn't want to go to St Louis with the weather predictions. They postponed the race and made it a double race at the end of September. I thought that was great until I figured out I can't go because I have to be in Noble Ok for our Division 4 race.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Anyhow I'm loaded up and ready to go to Georgia Thursday. I rigged up something to help save my shocks today. Since I don't run my wheelie bars I made this up to keep movement to a minimum.



South Georgia Motorsports Park Adel, Ga this weekend.
