    Wit Wiz Freddie, the only way to go! Both Pat's and Geno's claim to be the original, they are across the street from one another. I start at Pat's, down one, walk across the street to Geno's, down another, and then at some point crawl back to the car.

    I thought this tread was about slot cars and prep work. Prep 1 of those cheese steaks with wheels and bring it back to the track for me LOL

    Pat's for cheese witz peppers and Gino's for provolone and onions. That my routine and I'm sticking with it.

    Hey Mic, I just logged in and saw your photos...good job buddy! The bite bar configuration on your ES32 looks quite interesting.....me thinks me has some awesome competition in a few weeks!!

    Last night I finished putting glue on all the 3/32" 1/24 scale wheels and donuts. Tonight they get dipped in lacquer thinner and mated.

    Also last night I had the opportunity to view (in person) a new Koford eurosport motor....I even had the opportunity to grind its shaft down to 1.5mm for its owner! The motor looked good, built by Beuf. Pretty much like a Camen "small block", the can o.d. is .625", magnet dimensions of .420T X .300L...not sure of the mag configuration. The only unusual thing was the arm diameter....only .456", like a Camen Gulliver. Stack length is .300". My understanding is Beuf will be going to .480" diameter arms next in this same motor set up. Probably a good idea.

    Thanks SR
    No dreams of grandeur for me if my stuff is competitive and I make b mains I will be 1 happy camper.1/24 Saunder euro is done some fresh axle bearings and a good cleaning fresh motor ready to go.
    Have to admit all this talk of wonder rubber and supernatural rubber is got me a little scared never tune a car for anything but soft tires but sure it will work out. Maybe hermanator needs to harden some of his tires up for us?

    You'll do great Mic. For the wonder rubber and supernatural rubber we'll be well prepared as I have been gluing up those donuts too, and now we also found a similar rubber we heard about from a racer in Italy...we got a shipment of stuff very similar to supernaturals but better wear. We're good and ready.

    Only amateurs get cheesesteaks with Wiz on it. I've never had a Pat's sandwitch I believe Genos was first. Genos use to sell pizza's to.

    I've done so much with so little for so long it seems like I can do anything with nothing at all.

    Some of the locals will tell you to skip Pat's and Geno's and go to Tony Luke's.

    I've had all 3 and they are all good but none of them, IMHO, are nearly as good as a similar sandwich from Garibaldi's in the Chicago suburbs.

    So this is one of the secrets to getting the right tire compound for Lou's refurbished Super 8....I know you're going to find this hard to believe, but...

    I use this tray after the hubs have been glued in, and there you have it, Stubb's Hubbs.

    Like most people who never lived in Philly let alone been there, you need to understand one thing Mike. Having a cheesesteak outside of Philly, while it may be good, doesn't make it a Philly cheesesteak just like having a deepdish pizza outside of Chicago doesn't make it a Geno's East deepdish pizza no matter how good it taste.
