2013 season...
« on: January 17, 2013, 02:42:06 AM »
I hope everyone can get re-registered and this one will be less of a problem than the last one  lol   :o

I have along way to go to get the red truck ready and my new one built, is anyone else getting close to being ready to race??  I am ready i guess just not the trucks..   ;D

I'm still looking at a frame, with motor, tranny, and t-case in it, and almost have the suspension and axles under it, but still have a ton of work to do and thats just building my new one not getting the red one fixed and ready too... looks like i might have to end up having some very short nights of sleep to get em ready... starting to feel the time crunch already  lol

Waiting on new rod ends and suspension will be done... Will fire it up right after banquet when I get carb back...   Gettin it really close just the small things, but they take awhile usually, then got to put new bars on the front of the red truck, and new front clip.. And maybe new paint on both??    Then to rebuild my motor and swap it in when ever done...   Gotta lot of work to do!!!   How's everyone else comming along??.   Any new pics??

well, i still haven't touched the trucks. i did start moneymaker the other day ,had to move it, the sound of it is getting me in the mood. have a few changes in mind but only thing that has to be done is pull tranny and replace front pump.  we just finished a 327 for corkeys 68 malibu, hope to have it going this summer. working on new engine for james.s truck , need it ready for his prom next month.

putting new rod ends on the 4 link today, finishing wiring everything up, putting limiting straps on , put a few gussets on it, and get it ready to start next weekend...   getting closer on the new one ...  then need to get going on the red truck, hopefully dont find anything new to do to it...  right now fix inner fenders to accept fenderwell headers, build new front clip and hopefully paint the whole truck, build new ladder bars and hope to put new bearings in  it too...  going to be a busy few weeks...

Didnt get anything done. My father in law had a massive heart attack on Friday and is in really bad shape.  :'( Hope it all works out but not looking good.
