    Along with the all inclusive 'out West' is the track right in between NorCal and BPR. Foster's races every Thursday. Flexi GTS and Retro CanAm. We race the JK Indy cars once in a while. Some of...

    Well there you go Jason. Speed is relative, but AW's will always win over inlines. In the beginning, D3 coupes were a choice configuration. Either AW's or inlines. Same with 32nd cars. AW's...

    I did a little trade out with Oscar one time. I built him an anglewinder coupe chassis. He told me if they ever run coupes on the King, he would super competitive. Of course Oscar never got to...

    You know how it went with D3. Anglewinders were legalized and builders went to town building. When it was apparent that the StockCars, Coupes and 32nd didn't have the draw, then everyone backed off...

    I enjoyed building and racing anglewinder Coupes and 1/32, BUT as was pointed out, the interest has been limited to twice a year. Its a break from the norm and its worked well. 1/32 on the...

    Your cars were def ballistic Mill. F-1 was a surprise to me. Sometimes speed secrets pop up out of nowhere:p It was a good experience for both Canaan and I on the Flatster this time. I always...

    They're all throw away, BUT latest deal on some bulk buys puts the MB at less than $7 each. They tend to have a good running life and run cooler.
    So, we'll go slower, have closer racing and have...

    With the motor running backwards, 12-39 (64p) was the best out of the 3 other ratios I tried for the first intro race. But that's with 760 tires. We run a 110 ft "paperclip" track. We would have...

    Thank you Bill for an informed opinion. A quick check found that, (yes) NorCal Retro runs the MB in 3 of their scratchbuilt classes, but none are to be found in any scale/flexi racing. The...

    Over a 170 hits now... serious? no one can answer? We may end up running the MB's in Retro. Won't be a total waste.

    We actually WANT to slow it down a bit. We already run Hawk 7's in Retro CanAm. This class is for a more relaxed, much closer racing agenda. Good for less skilled drivers and hopefully attract...

    Question about the S-7 Mini-Brute motor

    We are starting a new slower class of Champion Turbo Flex chassis and CanAm era coupe bodies. We did an informal 'get acquainted' race, and all seemed fine except one car got very hot. We were...

    I ran one @ BP's Checkpoint in the Anglewinder Coupe. Very decent performance. With one race on the motor, it will do just fine for Western States Classic in July. Important point about having...

    I still have a couple of new, left over handout TSR's. I do pretty good against the Hawks most of the time here locally. After the supply is gone, they may be collector's items.

    Well, the latest is the subject of hand out spec tires for the folks back east, Nesta. I favor it to an extent for large, crowded yearly events. It wouldn't necessarily turn Retro into a Spec class...

    Thanks Tim. For some reason the 32's and Coupes didn't endure in popularity, but at least didn't go the way of Jail Door and Nascar. I think NorCal did it right in choosing the Mini-brute for...

    Have to agree with Roman on that. Tim, if you have a personal beef with a racer, that should be taken up one on one with the 'offender' and not paraded here or elsewhere. =M=
