had a good day yesterday---spent 15 minutes with 6 different groups of kids whose "summer camp" was kinetic energy with slot cars on ramps

I took some racing stuff:
 a SCTA rule book
on old helmet with the yearly inspection stickers
a moon disc
dictionary,
picture of RATICAL
parachute pack with a pilot chute
my 2008 USFRA "blue hat" trophy
blue hat
wore my 300 chapter t shirt signed, on the salt, by Sum, Ruth and Pork "it doesn't much matter how you open the hole, it is how you close the hole"  Pie .

I played the short run of my 2007 back up attempt  stopping and discussing how KINETICS were in play.

Later in the afternoon I was in the shop for 3 hours cleaning up stuff for re-instaliation.

Sparky- I'm sure some did, but I'll go ahead and say it, too: THANK YOU! The next generation needs real life information and experiences to interest them in science, math, etc. You (and others here) do the sport and hobby a giant service by taking of your time to support that. My hats off to you. cheers

Great day yesterday John came by for several hours and Andy last evening and today!

I thought I was through bracket racing but not so we made some new hold downs for the 190# in the very bottom of the car just in front of the rear axel and a new trans shift cable bracket!!

Painted frame with Rustoelum Primer will start back with the eng tomorrow.

Well the monsoon season is alive and well in the AZ desert---Francis reported a big thunder storm downpour west of Tucson and we had our first dust storm roll in last night---picking muddy/bloody buggers---how gross is that!!!!

Well, Andy and I almost have the Rat back home---I let a ballast weight move just a little and we spent the AM cutting and chiseling lead---some how it just doesn't all align---4 out of 5 but now --as to why not 5x5--- back to the shop

found it--evidently the GV housing was resting on the ballast in the past--so when I properly clearance it--down came the mid plate to where it should have been all along. Ms. LIBERTY is beginning to look like a "slinky salt lady"   Andy and I hope to fire her again on the 4th of July !!!!!!!  I have bought a new flag  and plan on putting it up on the 4th and save the old one for nasty days!!  We will post the picts on SSS Flags

ok

1. Well on closer inspection after we installed the starter---we had to flapper wheel the starter housing-- this is also the mid plate we had issues with

2. This is the original clearance problem

Andy and I had a good 2 hours dealing with "stuff" and beingengineering  ---so much fun!

Sparky,

It's always somethin' . . . . . . .    rolleyes   cry

Just wait 'till Chris and I try to "shoehorn" that Rover into the Milwaukee Midget.

That will be good for some laughs . . . . . .   and some hair pulling . . . . . . .   

I may have to start drinking Miller Genuine Draft again . . . . . . .

Keep at it buddy.
 cheers

Dunno . . . . .   I think that will be midget's and Slim's call.

I'm just hoping the little turd doesn't blow the "meat" out of the "sandwich" . . . . . .  rolleyes

THAT, would really be "Miller time".
