Who got the limited edition new Hawk motors? I ordered early and did not.

I will be the guy at the R4 trying to build a 7R in the hotel room... LOL.

You probably never trained any dogs Will!

 

If you rub the dogs nose in his chit when he's bad, he probably will bite you sometime down the road!  :acute:

I wonder how many more are hidden away in a vault? If any?

I know people talk about motor issues all the time. But this seems on a different level than even the Puppy Dog or other slot car motors. I feel like I am a Wall Street trader on the stock market and one wrong move could cost me a ton of money.

It's funny Will, it may be our age difference, but all of this motor non-sense reminds me of the line from the Smashing Pumkins-Bullet with Butterfly Wings.

No rage here. As a new stock broker, I am trying to find a way not to lose my *** here... LOL.

I thought 200 motors would last longer than eight hours.

I know who got 'em... I know who got 'em...
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. - Ronald Regan #40 (1911 - 2004)

Welcome back to slots Gary. It hasn't changed much. Motors have always been a talking point in our sport. From the earliest days of the 60s to today.
