Hi John. I am interested in sending a Landshark for someone to proxy race for me then raffle off as a race prize. Who do I contact?

Hi john. I spoke with Joes son. I wanted to make sure the car was race legal and it is. I will put fresh pickups and a nice new body on a car that Bill Macy finished 6th with with no practice @ the BRASCAR race @ the HOPRA Nats last year. Its a nice running car.
One of only two I have right now. It will go out by Friday.
I am trying to gather inertia to do another run of cars. 24 new frames are being cut now. Stay tuned!

Joh, yes we have raced ho and 1/32 there a few years back. My ho cars are packed away for severla years now. I purchased the chassis ad other parts for the Riggen with the lowered motor mount, but never had time to assemble it....my birthday is Saturday, so not sure if my kids have plans for me or not, was hoping that the brass wars race would be on Sunday.....if i can make it, i will be there, and race whatever works from my pitbox....

Yes, was a fun afternoon of vintage h.o. brass wars racing. I haved participated in several of these events. I had Tony assemble a Riggen car for me, so i am really ready with a good car for next year's race!Will get some track time soon to test out that car. I really enjoy these types of cars, as this is exactly what i raced back in the early 1970's (Riggen, Tyco-Pro, AFX non-magnatraction with handling pan).

Dee,
The only plan i ever saw was from Pat Dennis "MR TYCO PRO" artical in old car model Mag, Think copy on Riggen site.
Great step by step cool first build, then take it from there.
