Been working on a lot of orders lately and here is the NorCal batch. I've added bearings and fronts where requested since the pic was taken.I was going to go down the hill to FTH yesterday and drop off and help as necessary with setups, but I got hit with a pretty bad cold Friday. With my sinuses plugged, my vertigo went off the charts and I was pretty non functional up to today as well. I send a setup sheet with each and mail on Monday..........thanks for your patience guys.

 

Starting on anglewinders next week. Got four to do, should be wrapped by Friday.

 

Top row: F-1 for Gary, anglewinder next, Repaired anglewinder for Randy, Can Am for Justin (anglewinder next week) Can Am for Ray.

Bottom: Matching Stock Cars for Ray and Tom (I want to build one of these for myself too) Complete assembled and tuned F-1 for Pops.

I did cut all the pieces for two identical stock cars at the same time. Everything else was a one off. Next week, three of the four anglewinders will be clones so I'll cut those all at once too. Yes, Mini Brute on the Stock Car

Thanks......depends on the day The Vertigo is still present but I sorta deal with it. Then I just got this (severe-ish) cold which plugged me up like crazy and in turn caused the Vertigo to go haywire again. Then there's that "old" thing..... :shok:

 

At least one of those things, I'm not likely to recover from.

Here's an update......The 'bad cold' that I reported on turns out to be pneumonia (!) I hope to be recovered enough by Sat. to come down to FTH and help with tuning. Most everyone should have their new cars pictured above by today. Exceptions are guys waiting on two and the anglewinders aren't done yet. I hoped to do some of the anglewinders this week but I'm knocked out by this pneumonia right now. I got medication yesterday and am feeling marginally better today but it feels like a long way to go.

Thanks for that (I had no idea) How many races will they run and what track will they be using and what's their start time?

OK thanks. Looks like a little tough to find a window to  test Retros. I'll prob come down anyway to get parts for the next build batch.
