    I'm trying to get a mental picture of you in the car. Do you wear your flip down geezer goggles when doing this?

    LOL! We can all get a little obsessive with our hobby at times. Good luck at the Nats! Tell all the guys I said hi.

    It could be a real pain in the keyster if the mounting pins were in that body.

    Mic Byrd has been a stalwart and consistently positive contributor to this board. His motor work has been a mainstay of the Grarden State ISRA club.
    He did not say so himself, and I hope I am not invading his privacy, but he will be away because his mother passed away.

    Mic, I extend my sincere condolences and, I am sure, those of every member who has enjoyed and benefited by reading your posts.

    Thank you and be well

    Bill Bugenis

    I had nothing better to do this evening, so I went to the slot room and threw together a new F1
