The no testing at C/R rule is a good one. Which is why I am not entering a car even though I would like to. I have

an unfair advantage since I was building these cars before the proxy idea was announced. I spent too much time

developing the bodies and chassis before any one else had the kits. I would love to be a driver, though.

I'm not sure if it's Lucky 13 hangover, guys are not killing themselves, getting cars finished.

 

Guys, lets start posting with a realistic date you can get your car in.

Yes, how is everyone doing ?

 

As soon as I get a few more cars, maybe we'll have our first race, and it

will inspire the rest of the guys to get their cars done.

I say, let's race with what we got !

Evidently, the procrastinators have all found better things to do.

Including farming out work to people who don't even have the time to build. 

Even if you gave them another month, they would still need "another month "  ^_^

Ok guys,
How many are painting org. Paint jobs and would it be ok to do a fantasy race colors ?
Paul

 

Is clear considered a fantasy color?

 

 

 

Evidently, the procrastinators have all found better things to do.

 

 

That is the only reason to ....

 

Procrastination refers to the act of replacing more urgent actions with tasks less urgent, or doing something from which one derives enjoyment, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time. In accordance with Freud, the pleasure principle may be responsible for procrastination; humans prefer avoiding negative emotions.......

 

Hans Eysenck defined the three-factor solution with Neuroticism, Extraversion and Psychoticism. Costa & McCrae, among others, championed the five-factor model: Conscientiousness, Agreeableness, Neuroticism, Openness to Experience and Extraversion (CANOE).

 

In addition, one of the most recent papers that addresses personality traits and procrastination by Dong-gwi Lee, Kevin Kelly and Jodi Edwards (Purdue University), begins to address the relation among personality traits. Although it is beyond the scope of this blog to explain their work with structural equation modeling, I can summarize their findings by noting that their results support Clarry Lay's argument that Conscientiousness is a higher-order trait that is likely to influence trait (chronic) procrastination.

I'm having trouble getting to finish it off with so many other things (perceived priorities by SWMBO and car club stuff) going on at the moment, and with no deadline for the Kurtis, it keeps getting pushed aside.

 

Pablo is right in that there has been more than enough time to build, so why don't you just pick a date that suites you and go for it.

 

Maybe have another race later on as well for those who don't make this race.
:huh:

We'll go with June 27th for the first race.

 

Those cars running in it will have a slight advantage, in subsequent races, in that their big rear tires will

be "track trued".

A note to brassrodman:

 

Concentrated Ghost Pepper drops are NOT LEGAL for comm juice :diablo:  :laugh2:  :bomb:

Bob, not "busting" on anybody for having a pro painted body.

But I will say, I think they missed out on a part of the fun of this "Fun" race by not doing the paint.

I sure did have fun researching mine, it may well have been my favorite part of the whole experience.

Learning and practicing all aspects of this hobby is just so cool.

I use Noose bodies and I use Jairus bodies and drivers all the time.

But I love to paint my own. Just don't expect straight lines :pardon:

......We happen to like Nooses's expertise :victory:

 

I'm a we too ... and couldn't agree more. :)

 

Well Bob, iffin you can't find your, just gives me a yell and I'll ships you a nice rest one:-)

:laugh2: ..... consider that this is A :shout:

 

 

Bob, not "busting" on anybody for having a pro painted body.

But I will say, I think they missed out on a part of the fun of this "Fun" race by not doing the paint.

I sure did have fun researching mine, it may well have been my favorite part of the whole experience.

Learning and practicing all aspects of this hobby is just so cool.

I use Noose bodies and I use Jairus bodies and drivers all the time.

But I love to paint my own. Just don't expect straight lines :pardon:

These are looking pretty good ... semi-amateur but nice. Noose / Jarius quality no way.

 

I took (and gave) a lot of crap on the balls out ... since there is a tendency for my humor to piss everyone off .. I'm gonna tone it down a little ... Very little   :tease: :sarcastic_hand:  

 

So .. back to smack lite ... :D

Where's Jaak? :clapping:

WTG, John A.  Brass sheet and some floating body mounts. Simple and I'll bet it works great. :)

 

Bob S.  I wish I could help.  The Radio Shack minitorch flame can be adjusted with the same hand that holds it. Let me know if you need one.

You want smack talk, Bob ?

Hard to think of anything, since the racing is going to be very very close.

I painted my own body, how about that ?  :crazy:  :laugh2:

 

Your body, my body, everybody paint your body.   :clapping:  :dance3:  :dance3:
