LA was smokin' fast, it was fun to be there at Lima. I had to leave after the stock race (had a wedding to go to). We took 4th in Stock and 5th in Pure Stock--LA staged my car for Pure Stock. If I'd have been there to stage my own Pure Stocker, well... ... I'd be lucky to get 5th.
Thanks for all the fast parts LA & Glenn! Love the new axles!
Great job LA, heard bout waht you did with the track you won, that was more impressive than any of you wins!!!! Hey SRC finished 4th in Mod, and I finished right behind him in pure stock and my son was right behind him in novice, now, was it your cars SRC, or that fella stagin them,I knew I should have turn your steer wheel around to 12 0'clock ;D. For those of you who didnt hear, LA won the track given away, and gave it to MWDPWDRacing. Way to go John!!! Congrats to all who raced!
giving the track away was a honorable thing to do and shows you the kind of guy La is; along with the guys here & at East Coast Racing are; (your the MAN LA) ummm
1st place Modified 1st place Stock 1st place Limited 1st place Pure Stock
he raced the same car in pure stock as he did limited.. yes 1 of his cars won 2 different divisions!!
LA Sound dominated because he uses the Pro Body Tool........................AS A PAINT STAND!!!!!! (couldn't resist, John has taken enough grief over it) Congrats John and also to Jewkes Engineering. His success proves once again that The Block is the MUST HAVE tool!
i think that it was lucky's two boys that was entered in novice,,way to go LA ,,cars were fast ,, heck im estatic that i placed 5th in stock,,6th and 7th in pure stock,,i think,,doubt i did very well in mod tho,
Those were Lucky's sons.
My son finished 5th I think. He was upset he didn't do better. I told him to be proud. He did his best, and he was faster than I was - AGAIN!!
I did help him with staging, only because he asked me to ( and got upset when I said no for his first run).
I think the pressure got to him.
He wanted to do well and he also could feel the desire to move things along (NO ONE said anything to the kids about staging faster - they did a great job at it. He could just tell things were going slowly with the adults and felt pressured to do better with it when became his turn).
We all need to hear that message from time to time. I know that for me it is a difficult one to keep, but we must do it.
Actually I thought your whole post was excellent. Been kicking this whole thing around for a while I can't count how many times I've heard how great this event was. Congratulations are in order to Larry for putting on this event, to the winners and to all who participated.
Nicely done John handing off the track, very, very 8-)and your cars are smokin fast as usual. Great job & congrats.
As most of you know, I'll participate and race anywhere & everywhere I'm possibly able to. I obsessively love racing these cars. I consider my self lucky that I was able to participate in all 3 of the big national races & getting iron from all 3 events, BUT more so,,,,I consider myself very fortunate for the people I have come to meet & the friendships I've made since I started racing. I consider Lucky 13 my friend & one of the finest people I have ever had the pleasure to know.
Everyone, keep building and sending in those cars
P.S. I have to say BIG thanks to Glenn & David; I felt like a Saturday night jalopy racer hanging out at The Hendrick's Motor sports garage when I attended last months proxy race. What a blast hanging out with you guys. When I finally stumbled into my hotel room @ 5am the next morning, my wife interrogated me wanting to know why I was so late and covered in black glitter I love these cars ;D

It's better to be covered in black glitter than slick oil!!! Try and explain your way out of that one. ;D ;D

pony: Todd, E3, finished first in the street rods. I tried to build one of those once and it was a disaster.

pony: Jewkes' prep he offers on the eliminator wheels is excellent. I know of at least three guys in the eliminator finals that used it and was very successful. I don't know what's In it, but it's faster than anything I have.

Vitamin K: So wait, Pony, were your cars in the MA running on Jewkes prep?

PDDR: Congrates to PONY and ZEEBZOB for some new TRACK RECORDS !!!!!!!!!!!

mrb: Congrats Pony for the wins in Pure Stock and Modified!
May 16, 2017 10:15:44 GMT -7
mrb: My PS car Azul is in need of a re-prep to get it back to Track Record setting form. But with my luck, after re-prep it will be slow!
May 16, 2017 10:22:48 GMT -7
pony: I'm beginning to hate repreps. They usually end up slower for whatever reason. There's no choice but reprep when the cars start to slow. It's the way of the world.

pony: I'll be fishing this summer quite a bit, but I hope to have a cheap, safer and faster axle prep later.
May 17, 2017 15:20:15 GMT -7
mrb: Once I get my PS and Mod cars back from the race, they will be getting axle and wheel re-preps. Everyone is faster now so I have to re-prep and hope they are not slower.

Jun 8, 2017 20:08:46 GMT -7
mrb: I don't know if I will have my modified prepped in time for the race, but I re-prepped my PS. But you know how those go, sometimes the car is faster sometime it's not. I would love to get a PS Summer Shootout Title. Win or lose good luck to all on the 17th

pony: The Silly Putty still involves a hand drill so it needs adult supervision. Chuck the axle and hold it against the Silly Putty for about ten seconds to be sure it transfer. You have to wipe the axle down with a micro fiber cloth afterwards. It's a fait

Vitamin K: Silly Putty? Well, it does contain silicone oil...

quaddad: I am looking at this Door Slammr' rule "Additional materials may be added as long as they meet the Car Dimensions above" ... so you could put a 2" thin piece of wood in front of an otherwise 7" car and be legal ??
