Paul I have a flyer for the race and it states

 

" Motors used: Proslot FK for Can Am, F1, and 7-68" and 8 tooth pinion.

 

So that is what I am showing up with.

 

Rules are always so confusing.

I see it now, at the very bottom of Can Am and F1 rules, it has completely different rules for "Can Am FK" and "F1 FK".

 

No, rules are NOT always confusing. The only part of the rules that threw me for a loop was the addition of separate motor rulesets imbedded at the very bottom of the pages, WAY below the "Motor Rules" that say PS 4002B motors only.

Mississippi / Southern Alabama racers are ready to nail down motel resers - today.

JC, what is your experience ? Super 8, or Days Inn ?

JC, I fixed your post, It's "dibs", not Deebs", unless you are from Juarez, Mexico.  :sarcastic_hand:

 

What are ya talkin' about, "coupe" body ? The classes are G7-68, Can-Am, and F1. They only use "Coupe" bodies in Retro Flexi class. Please clarify.   :shok:

I'm 100% sure I have whatever body you need, heck I'll even paint it for you if you want. I'm off for the rest of the week, starting in an hour.  Call me at 9 AM central. :)

 

PS: You can sleep under the bank if you want, but you still owe me for the Daze Inn booking I made for you. No refunds, mister.  :diablo: :laugh2:

If I can confirm that ("Deebs" in Alabama) I'll undo the changes I made to your post, JC.  :o

 

Thanks for informing me of the rate reduction for Speed Zone racers at Days Inn.  :good:

If this thing is on the track during practice, you may want to give it a wide berth.

Don't want to hurt anybody, just wanna take 'er for a short spin.

Rear width is 3-5/8, wheelbase is 5-1/8, weight is >130 grams, and it's spooky fast.  :crazy:

It is a shame to be this unready for a race at what would be considered my home track.

Bob Rule "Mr. YoYo", owned Champion from 1970 to the early '80s. Still sharp as a tack with a great memory of USA slot car history.

Mr. YoYo autographed my vintage Champion can.
