Jarius

 Yes, I have this motor retro 7R

 

What is the other acceptable motor?, meaning the "FK", ​  what does this motor look like and part number?

 

Specifications says~  FK or HAWK RETRO motor required

 

Are there 2 choices?, or only one motor?

 

as the bank robber in the movie "Dirty Harry" said;~~~~ ""hey man!, I got's to know !""~~~~

 

 

 

 

 

thanks g;

That would mean ANY FK motor Eldon.
Whatever is available.  TSR, Slick 7, Evil 9... what ever you have that was legal in Retro.

But currently, the Hawk Retro is the motor of choice.

Gene,

By the way, you inspired me to build today.
The rain is coming down and I needed a change of pace. 
So... I am building one of those cars RIGHT NOW!
It will be another Siller/Watson entry.

Worked all day yesterday soldering and over two hours this morning just getting the guide flag set up!  But, the three points of contact are perfect!

Finally finished the Siller/Watson entry in the 2nd annual Larry Shinoda proxy race.
This thing has been a pain all the way.  Seems something always came up, and there were lots of problems along the way.
But it's finally done. 
Pans move smoothly.
Everything oiled nicely.
Tires are fresh cut.
Nothing rubs.
Guide self centers.... and fingers crossed.

Here's my entry, which will be flying into the States with me next week... A total Gene Adams creation, already raced at Roger Schmitt's Thingie race in the Chicago burbs many, many moons ago... I had it in a box called the Dart by Gene, but not sure it's the right car in this box! Period motor, Dyna style, but not sure it's a Dyna... 

 

It's the one on the left... wanted to add a chassis pic, but having a little trouble with direct upload for now...

So the track opens at 12, but racing wont happen till 5.  I encourage any thingie to be brought, but we are only doing car show judging and racing for cars with Shinoda bodies

Is it OK to bring period correct things to display and / or sell?

Do we need to bring our own tables?

I'm really looking forward to this.

Tables will be at the track, so no worries there, and it is absolutely ok to bring period things to sell and display.  Display items are encouraged!  I actually have a really cool display that I'll be bringing!

Track opens at noon, judging is at 4pm, I'll be there at noon though

Only three days away! 

 

As of today, I have the car show awards done.  Currently there are 9 awards.  Best of show will go home with a trophy as well as a best of show piece.  The winning car will also be featured next year on the awards.  

 

The second thing, this year's poster! Please let me know if you want one. 13 dollars, of which 10 goes to the track (the other 3 to cover printing costs). Limited to 31, individually signed and numbered.  Currently, four are spoken for

I think he would love it, but he would certainly critique it as well!  It's cool that its exposing a lot more people to his legacy though!

Contact Gene/ZR1 for the bodies, and we all have to wait until the next meet is announced!  Look through the Thingie forums to see the different bodies that are available from Gene!
