Re: 89 Corvette Mostmint #39

This was posted to the Champcar Garage and I thought it deserved a look.. Start at 0:49, crash around 1:00. According to the post, the Vette lost brake fluid after Saturday's race and wasn't checked prior to Sunday, which led to this event. Who knows the build quality of the car, but that doesn't lo...

DIY ultasonic cleaner

Stumbled across this article/video. The guy makes a real simple adapter with some aluminum and velcro to turn an ordinary sander into a DIY vibrating cleaner (maybe not 'ultrasonic'). The results are interesting. https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2020/12/17/watch-this-homemade-parts-cleaner-epicness ...

Anyone interested in the Hangover Nationals in Dragway 42 this New Years Day? I'm very much considering going. It's on a Friday.

Re: 1990 Corvette Z51

Well, progress moves slow, but it has been made. I moved the Z51 into the lift bay after all the snow melted. I noticed the front brake reservoir was very low, so I filled it up a bit. Once moved and sitting for a few days, i found a little puddle of brake fluid by the RF, master cylinder low/empty ...

Re: TRP 11-14-2020

Made it out for the final TnT of the season. Got bullied into running the gamblers race :lol: :lol: and of course ended up running Paul in the first round. I got the stripe first, but it was a double breakout. I got beat on the tree a little, .11 v. 09, but I went 12.38 on 12.50 while Paul went 11.7...

Re: TRP 11-14-2020

^^ Thanks for editingthat and suggesting that I put the GoPro in the 442. This is good stuff! GM No problem, glad it came out good. It's always best when you're in the right lane with it on the side window like that, you can see the tree well, you can see the other lane. I've never tried it on the ...

We cant forget the debut of the Speece Machine Blazer running 14.95 @ 88 on those huge 35s before a fuel leak would send him home early.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28C8KN-ib3I This is me vs. Tony's car, driven by Paul. 12.32 @ 107.9 vs 11.99 @ 111.7 My best for the day was 12.30 @ 107.9 with a 1.63 60ft. It was a great day to be out there, cool but not cold, no real wind, and i thought the track was decent. No huge numbers for ...
