    Way to go Craig, I rolled a bushing to stuff on my 16/24 arm. I ground the shaft to 1.5 for a 6t.pin. for a mickey mouse uero car, several months ago. Now its the only arm, 459, ihave to use in my 1988 open wing so am bushing it back to 2m.m shaft. yes it will be good enough, "Do this in memory of Rob"

    Well it was a sad time, but a very special service for Rob. With all the police officers in attendance, and their special way of saying goodbye to one of their own. I have seen these services on tv. for police officers and the military, but to be there in person, it makes you proud to be a part of it all, but ohh, so sad. Many good speeches about Rob ,but Dan's ,( uncle fester) was right on, and he did a good job of keeping his emotions in check, thanks Dan. Yours trly., Leonard Strand - remembering when Rob and i went to the nats. in Chicago and L.A

    I am 8,000 miles away, and was unable to attend, but my thoughts have been about Rob, the memorial, and all my slot car friends all week.

    I am at least comforted by the fact that Rob's family, coworkers, friends, and the public, are learning about Rob's passion and love for slot cars, and how he shared that passion with so many of us fellow slot car racers, and kids of all ages could experience the joy of this fun hobby in this "world" that Rob has created at PSCR.

    Kevin described the raceway to the Kent Police chief as "Rob's Field of Dreams".

    Rob built it so they would come... and come they did.

    We are all on this earth for such a short time... I hope that all of us can strive to leave some sort of positive impact in this world as Rob has for us.

    We have said our goodbyes to Rob, but he will be with us everyday. I know we will all work to continue what he has started. Jim and I promise to do everything we can to make Pacific Slot Car Raceways the best place to meet new friends and spend time with old ones there is. We will continue to race, laugh and smile whenever we think of our friend Rob.

    It's a year and a half later and I am absolutely crushed. I have been out of the slot loop for a while. Rob was one of the "Good Guys", actually he was the "Great Guy" I miss him and I haven't seen him in years...R.I.P. Bro

    which others are trying to prove
    him (or her) WRONG!!!
