Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Hey Regan,
Nice story. I made the mistake of adding up receipts for the last 5 years today...ugg.
I'm going to take a shot at some 10.90 stuff in the coming months. I'm liking the way the truck is working with the SWB.
Good luck with your rig.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Dang I had trouble finding my thread ... Sorry I hadnt been on in awhile . The truck is race ready and covered in dust right now . I just got tired of struggling with the rollout changes at our events (after I finally got it lined out) you cant be competitive in Super Classes when you have to bump in and dont know where you are at . I havent made up my mind what I'm gonna do to the truck . No matter what i do it will still be a heavy pig . i just refuse to chop on it too much . I talked to paul earlier this year about one of his frontends , that would help alot (probably 100lbs over what i have now) . I just decided after the first 3 races this year it was time for a break (the first in 5 years). I havent saved any money though ! My Harley has new heads and cams , Handlebars and too much other stuff ...LOL....

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Nice to see ya stopping by Regan. I know well the need for a break. I havent been in the seat since Oct of last year. Going to try to get out for a T&T in Oct and Nov with the truck just so I don't forget too much LOL. Enjoy the rest, and be digging out that practice tree for somethig to do this winter. LOL

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

For those that havent seen my thread here it is . Time has flown by since I parked it last may . I havent been racing becuase I havent had the time . The good thing though is the truck is all in one piece sitting on jack stands .

You aint kiddin man . I would like to run it wide open . I would have earlier this year but I broke my leg Jan 7th . By the time I healed up I was broke and all the good air was gone. I might try to go do some 580 stuff but you cant use a throttle stop . I think maybe if I leave real soft and get it in high gear about 100ft out it may work . I may take it to Dallas Raceway later in the year and run it w/o in the quarter . I keep tellin my buddy on Your favorite tv show to let me get it on one of there episodes but I havent talked to him in awhile.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Did you get any runs late this year? I heard that Randy Ramos got back into racing but I have not talked to him in quite a while. I heard that you may have done something with your truck too. Just checking in to see what is going on.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Well I havent got anything done and the truck is still on jackstands. I have been busy since october getting ready to move my business. We sold our building that my family has owned since the early 50's. I will be pre occupied with this for a few more months. I was gonna joke with yall that the truck was getting a new home. Then tell ya it was getting a new shop to stay in. I may have something in the works if I can sell some parts to finance a new frontend but nothing for sure yet. It may be another year off for 2013 but atleast I got to run the Nationals in Ennis last year. It just wasnt the same in a borrowed car.
