Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Well.... That sucks that you'll miss-out but taking some time off to re-group & do some part swapping while not under the pressure of time constraints should be a nice change.

Having to get things done under pressure can wear on ya' so maybe this is a really good thing. Still opportunity to go to the tracks/s & shake some hands & enjoy a beverage or 2 w/friends if you feel up to it or do whatever floats the boat until you're ready to get after it again fully recharged.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

It's not that big of a deal Scoti. I only had one race left I could run for points and that was going to be St Louis again. It's not worth it to me if I don't have a chance of winning Division. I showed up in Topeka sitting in 5th with a good chance but messed it up and came home in 6th. One of our guys won the Divisional in Bowling Green last weekend and bumped me to 7th. I'll be lucky to finish in the top ten. For the money I would spend going to St Louis I would rather invest it in new valves.

I understand & that logic definitely makes sense.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I don't really have anything to report. I've done nothing with the truck since the Topeka race. I may go do some testing again at XTreme Raceway again in the next two weeks. I don't even know if I will have new valves before next season. Kinda sux but it is what it is.

Update if you do decide on the testing. I'll try & make it out again to watch.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Hi Regan, It's DB, if your wanting to make some test runs you can run with us at I30 Dragway on 10/23 or at our last race of the season at XRP on 10/30. I ran a double header today, 2 races back to back. Lost first round in the first race but won the finals in Outlaw class in my S-10 in the second race. It was a long day but worth it. You will get a minimum 3 runs, that's two test runs and 1 elimination run. If not then post when you will be at XRP and I will try to make it out there.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

It looks like I may have to wait until the 28th for XTreme. They have big events scheduled and I'm sure not showing up during a bike race. I'll go on a Friday so I can run as many test hits as I want during their Gamblers Race. Congrats on the win DB! I was looking at going to I-30 but I can't find the schedule. Also it's a little hard for me to stop at that track due to the short shutdown.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I may check with my friend Tony and see if I could test during the Texas Muscle Car Club race Sunday the 30th. It may be kinda cool by then so I would rather have a warmer track.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I understand, but if you can make it to XRP on the 30th that would be cool. I think the gates open at XRP at 9am and racing starts around 11am. I would like to meet you and see your truck in action. If you do its your call if you want to run that morning with us. With my win yesterday I will also be running in the Big Dog race after the normal TMCCC race. I will be running against other Outlaw season winners.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime



Well I finally unloaded the truck yesterday. The slicks were pretty low on air and stuck to the floor. I couldn't start it without priming the dry sump. It took a few minutes with me pushing on the wall with one arm from the drivers seat.

I pulled the radio out (AKA the delay box) for a little wiring cleanup.

Photobucket has changed. You can zoom in or out before pasting the link. Weird.

Sorry DB I forgot to reply to you. I don't want to race I just want to test. I'm planning on Friday the 28th at Xtreme. That will be TNT and gamblers race night. I can make as many hits as I want.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Well after talking with DB I'm taking him up on his invitation. We are going to Xtreme Sunday morning to race with his club. I haven't bracket raced in years so it should be fun. I'll just be happy if the truck works right. I'm hoping I have figured out my 60 ft issues I had this season. If so I'll feel better going into next season.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Regan it was good meeting you and your truck is awesome. I hope you had fun and got to make a few extra passes than you probably thought. Not sure but I think you were in the finals; I know you ran the semifinals. I will get your award when I go to the banquet and send it to you. Thanks for the tip about the finish line, I know it helped me at least win one round. Will keep in touch and hopefully meet up at the track again.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

That was a season ending race for anyone in the TMCCC series he was racing with that had won at least one race. All the previous race winners in their respective classes had a runoff to be a Big Dog. When I left I just told him not to be a Pup Good job Bud.
