    ****yeah but that's amateur bodies...i know it would handle awesome,i like the parma caddy hd my self, but the dome was the only one i had painted...going to paint and mount an redfox r-10 or audi for raceing at the cave in yorba linda as soon as possible...probally going to also try and solder a piece of .032 wire across front to body pin holder to help hold the pans together a little..hopeing that will smooth out the car a little more as well...

    Got test time on my Mack Speeder last night and on not very good track conditions the car was very good . The 1 problem is the pans have about .010 droop in them.tires got low and ouside edge was draging before tires where completely gone. will make adjustment and fix that. All in all another Quality Chassis from Richard Mack

    Met The Hermanator up at Slot Car Raceway, Rohnert Park, Calif. and completed final safety inspections and shake down runs. All equipment checks out and is safe to race, so now it's time to just complete some tires. Almost as bad as bodies.

    John McMillan and I made a roadtrip down to Washington Slot Car Club yesterday and got some practice for next weekend.

    I tried several B-Production bodies and found an R-18 of all things that went around the track pretty well to my liking.
    John loaned me a FX JRL Car to run.
    Got that prepped today, complete with a beautifully painted and detailed body.
    My Group 10 cars are pretty stuck, but I know my motors are slow.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday.
    Safe travels and good luck.

    race lag over time to get ready for the start of Garden State Isra Series. First race next sunday at The Garden State Isra Club Home of the Anaconda. Most of my series cars are ready didn't race for very long in b pro or 12 at the Isra Championship a lot of bad luck so not to much to do. Have 6 motors for a buddy to do 2 12's 2 contenders and 2 super wasp. we are racing euros the Saturday before the opening race but again bad luck didn't run them for very long.

    haven't been doing much but time to get it in gear 2 speeder chassis to build and a bunch of motor rebuilds and a few new 1's. Finally got a chance to really test the speeder out on the anaconda at the Garden State Isra Club. the Anaconda is now owned by myself and Jersey Jayro and 1 silent partner. We are going to upgrade the computer and also switching to Lapmaster . Our location is secure for the next year or 2 . Also putting up a 39 " monitor my old eyes need something a little bigger to see those hot lap times (LOL) back to the speeder testing we had it down in the 4.2's and with a good track surface probably in the .4.1's this chassis has lots of potential . Another great kit to build from Richard Mack.
