    We have moved the start time of the event to 5pm! This will ensure we get late boxes.

    With the way USPS has been performing, this is probably a great idea.

    1st time oil prep for the scout cars, the kid doesn't want to polish an axle for a while. Hope it's not a step backward.
    The axles & wheels are curing in an undisclosed location.
    & Pop built a new one, Unlimited "NO4NJUNK", let's go fast.

    Man! Part of me wants to the race, and the other is telling me that I have a lot of work to do in order for me to do so Being torn sucks, but I’m excited to watch either way.

    The Do It For Dale Flying Aces have been working their tails off to get the lil car that couldn't set up to cut a hundredth or 3 off their sub 3 average since last race. The Intimidator is/was a loosely built AWANA car that showed up at Eagle Mountain with the wrong platform, bad drill, wrong BASX WB, left steer, and a weighting system that was just thrown together to make weight.

    With the addition of a SBX to their arsenal they've corrected and verified the drill, converted to right hand steer, 4 3/4ed the wheel base, drilled out all the randomly placed lead and is now weighted properly, chopped the top to lower its aero footprint, an axle upgrade and a whole new axle prep routine. It may want to run uphill but it won't be from the lack of putting in the work. We're Doin' It For Dale because Dale did it for us !!

    Ballistic you're one bad fast racer !!

    Thanks for the encouragement Mr' Jimmy. Here's why we can't give up on The Intimidator and build a new car from scratch just to look like everybody else. Mr. Restrictor Plate never gave up on a car so we can't either because we're Doin' It For Dale !!

    I can attest to that. So much so, I'm borrowing some of his enthusiasm.

    Oh guys....btw just heard that the track will be slightly angled this year....so it is recommended to use about 3 to 4 inches More steer than normal, for Right dom cars only. Left doms need to steer off rail the same 3 to 4 inches to run. PM me in you need any help with your set ups, I would love to help out.

    Why in the blue blazes would they want to angle the track ? Precision Red Neck Guess Work is the only thing holding my rig together. That is before today when it rolled off the work bench when a friend distracted me with a surprise visit to the Garagemahal. Some really nice 2.4's took a lick and the right axle boss said adios. Billy's Red Neck Do It for Dale's Flyin' Aces pit crew is working their Ace's off to make it for shipping time Monday morning.

    How do you pay to enter? I didn't see an online payment option. Just put a $10 bill in the box with the car?
