    you could be in for a long winter, if the race doesn't happen.
    I really don't want the " Great snowmobile race challenge " thread to get started. or a snow board contest. lol
    anyway, when did you get back from the pumpkin patch ? picking apples ?

      I can't agree more. My wife and I were out this evening tearing up the streets of Portland with our Street drift tires on the back. Drove out to a mustang club weekly car show at a pizza place out here and showed them where the real muscle was at..
      Pulled in and idled slowly down two long rows of Mustangs and Chevys with the idol of just "cracklin" permeating the air with the rich smell of 100ll.

      I walk away with my wife to go order some pizza and a guy says Scrapper or scraper? I said it has two P's? (I'm sorry I'm not trying to be a dick, but I'm not trying to give grammar lessons either)
      They've announced at Woodburn as the scraper also. It pisses my wife off something fierce, as a matter of fact I can hear her yelling back at them on some of my videos LOL

        So word on the street is YR is getting the car ready. Geez! Then come to find out I'm gonna have to drive to the above ground cesspool better known as Portland to see this race. Damn! Oh well if this happens I want to see it with my own two eyes.

          I just need about 3 hours prep time that's all.
          1) Change all four tires into my wrinkle Walls and skinnys. (Newer tested stuff not 12 year old junk)
          2) change the doors (which are really easy only 5 bolts each and changing into the race doors is easy because they're ultralight.)
          3) four bolts and four nuts and the front and back seats are pulled out within 5 minutes. and another 5 minutes I can bolt a little plastic seat down for the driver.
          4) Take the 4 bolts out of the hood and take that off also.

          With my roll bar out now that would put me about 100lbs below my old race weight.
          Now if I was worried which obviously I'm not. I could.... Put my B & M vertigate shifter in for those lightning shifts, but for a rusty, very rusty yellow rose? NOT NEEDED! LOL

            I'd race Jpar on broken glass with bare feet before I ever did anything in a snowmobile. That would just be wrong.

              I lived in the islands when I was a little kid and there was the show where the guy would walk on the broken glass.

              It's your sycophants screwing with the voting.


              I will say this. I am beyond pissed at the window in that can I paid for. I should shove the whole fother mucker back and ask them who can adjust shit through that window unless you are a highly trained 9 year old with bony fingers.

              Just bullshit. I thought that shit was small and didn't think to ask if they had a bigger window.

              Just bullshit. I'll need to dig through some of my tools and see what I have to make it work or hire a highly agile midget to do the shit for me.

                Been working, that's about it. The thread went quiet for a while and I forgot to check in.

                Seems to me the video is in this thread somewhere or it is in your thread? Honestly can't remember.

                The Exxon Valdez was YR's motor not mine. Between his illness and him working on his brain surgeon cousins car my motor took a backseat. Which is fine since I've been busy with work and now buying a house.

                      Not a problem why do you think they made cutting torches and welders.

                      I would have but then the bell housing can never be used for 11.49 or quicker. And they will never fix it, even if they can once it's modified at home.

                      I should be able to make up something to get in there. Pisser for sure. The nice thing is the disc isn't all the way in yet and I'm at about 685 pounds of base load. That means when the disc is in, I can drop the base pressure to probably the high 500's, maybe a bit less, use a few grams of counter weight and tune from there.
