I'll PM the address for royalties. Haha
But seriously love these brackets.. only bracket that goes in my cars. Thanks:)

I'm like a kid waiting on Christmas for some of these gems.
Test, test, test and go test some more.
You're never fast enough!!! 💯

Luck is the residue of design.

It's not about being right, it's getting it right.

Kelly Racing.

Big congrats to Greg Fox, on his wins, in both Can-Am and F1, this past Saturday, at the Penn-Ohio Retro race, at MMW, using C/R motor brackets in his Bud Bartos chassis.

After besting, arguably, the 2 most feared men in Retro racing, rumor has it, Greg spent a good portion of Superbowl Sunday, thumping his chest, like Tarzan. Lol

Congrats to Jerry Herbert Jr., on his TQ, and 3rd place finish, this past Saturday, at the Retro East race at HVR, using the C/R Versa-bracket.

 

Also on qualifying 2nd, and finishing 2nd, in F1.

 

On a different note, by the amount of brackets I've sent Bud Bartos, the last 10 days, or so, it looks like another great turnout at R4, this year.

Big congrats to Cap Henry on his sweep at ORS KOR #5 (R4/11 Warm-up), at Tom Thumb Hobbies.

 

Cap won GTC, Can Am, and F1, using C/R brackets in his CHR (self) made chassis.

 

Medium congrats to Jason Dennis and Mike "Raisin" Garrett, on rounding out the podium in Can Am, using C/R brackets in their Bartos built frames.

It's also a lot of fun listening to Jason give me his "Whoa is me...I've only been doing this for 4 months", B.S.

 

I had to pull out my "hocus - pocus, mind control sh*t" out on him, and get him to admit he used to be a Paul Ciccarello protege.

Same chassis. Just removed the weight, swapped the motor, rear tires and body, and replaced the bent rear axle from a big crash with 1 minute to go in coupes.

The medium congrats is a variation of the "semi-sincere, pat on the back", I offer 6 year old's, when they ask what are they going to win.

Big congrats to Dale Yamashita on his F1 King track win, this past weekend at BP, using a C/R bracket in his Bartos built chassis.

Dale put on a dominating performance, TQing, by over a .1, and winning by a whopping 8 laps.

Dale also had a C/R pinned, Red Fox guide, on his car.

I think all of us old retro geezers should be appreciative of the stuff you offer us and the interest that you take. I especially think that your local Retro geezers should appreciate the fact that they don't have to race Dale Y every week........... :laugh2:

Yeah, Dale is pretty serious.

I tried to end one PM conversation with him, with the comment, "this is suppose to be a hobby".

He answered his wife tells him the same thing. Lol

Thanks to all who used the C/R Versa-bracket, and other C/R chassis parts at R4/11.

 

The C/R bracket took 10 of 12 podium spots, along with 3 of the 4 TQ's.

 

It swept both Friday coupe classes, going 1,2,3, in both, along with both of the TQ spots.

 

Thanks to chassis builders, (alphabetically) Bud Bartos, Andrew Ford, Cap Henry, and Greg Van Peenen, for using them in their awesome builds.

A C/R coined guide brace, along with two C/R 2 degree guide tongues, swept the GTC podium.

After doing some Facebooking, I discovered John Gorski had a Versa-bracket on his super-sano TQ F1 car, from this past weekend.

And based on past history, I assume Jerry Herbert Jr.'s GTC TQ car, also had one.

Things have been pretty crazy here the last few weeks, but I was meaning to congratulate Jerry Herbert, Jr., and John Gorski, on their 1-2 finish, at the Retro East series finale, a few weeks back, at Speedzone, using the C/R Versa-bracket.

 

They also qualified 1-2, with Jerry TQ'ing.
