Postby RazorJon » Sun Sep 09, 2012 9:15 pm

Rules 1925-1975 Truck
1\24 1\25 Scale must have a Driver
H&R Chassis or one you built :idea:
NO MAG :naughty:
Any Motor Any Tire
SEPT 29 2012
SEND YOUR TRUCK OR SHOW UP AND HELP ME RUN

Track Info
Long fast Carrera Track large banked curves and long straights between with 3 feet in elevation changes. 170 feet lap length I will run the trucks on the 2 middle lanes 10 laps recording the fastest, I run at 15 volts with 16K motor but I can run at your requested voltage keep in mind my track likes a little more power to climb the hills and banks.

You will be judged on speed and looks we have trophy's that I built and some other cool prizes (sorry if you get a trophy) :o
I hope Harry will be here to help :shhh:
Chili Dogs or maybe Chicken and dumplings :animals-chickencatch:

Let me know if you are coming, it will be race what you bring after the truck fun

You can make it, Jeremy.

I think I may have set a new record for waay too much into this stuff. Last night I dreamed a slot car (really a truck), and I'm going to build it and hopefully send it to Jon's big day. Honestly, what's nuttier than dreaming a slot car?

So you are saying dreaming about slot cars isn't a good sign?

Uh oh...

Yup. We're way too much into this. By the way, I got the kits out and looked at the dream car/truck, and I can do it. I'm going to build it. Completely insane idea.

Jon, when you say trucks, do you mean pickup trucks, or the real trucks (Mack, Kenworth, etc)?

We call Mack and Kenworth tractor's but sure you can build one, or a pick-up if you want, not big on rules here :naughty:

Hope you and the gang makes it, we will have plenty of coffee

If you plan on sending me your trucks, PM me for my address, please put your name under your truck so we do not confuse anyone

To the early birds, I think you know who I am talking about, if you show up before 10 you better have milk and donuts :hand:

Hope to see all of you, we will make sure you have a good time :text-welcomeconfetti:

Let's hope I can get this thing painted this weekend. I will mail it and your kits together. No I haven't forgotten I was trying to use the kits as motivation to finish the truck up. You know how that goes! :oops:
