Re: 2020 Ford Ranger #55

I'd pay $825 for 45 horsepower and a warranty, pretty sweet deal!

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

I haven't had anything to post lately, so, the roads have been dry for sometime, I thought I'd test the heater in the TrackBird, it started right up, I can tell you after a little 5 - 10 mile run that the heater works just fine, It took about a mile before the tires became round. Just waitin' for sp...

BP did a great job capturing a moment and putting this photo together.

Having the 442 in the background completes the visual.

Can almost see light under those skinny front tires!

Re: iRacing ChampCar events 2020

It was my last chance to attend another iRace until next year so I planned on attending the Weather Tech Raceway Laguna Seca. This was the 16th and last version of this iRace series. Laguna Seca is approximately 2700 miles from home, either a 29-hour drive or a private jet out of Burke Lakefront Air...

Re: iRacing ChampCar events 2020

The Private Jet and the rental car were both sanitized before I took them.
Now the Ohio Governor and the CDC have me in a ten day quarantine.

Re: iRacing ChampCar events 2020

It was Wednesday the 02nd of December and I wanted to attend the iRace version 15 at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama. Well that’s 750 plus miles from home, an eleven-hour drive. So I decided to charter that private jet for a 3-hour flight to Birmingham, were I had a rental car reserved for...

Re: TRP 11-14-2020

OK! Thanks for those two great jimmy videos. That 14.39 pass speaks for itself,
but lining up against a Mustang convertible, thought I was toast.
It must of been a 6 or a 4, but that's ok the jimmy received the "white" time slip.

All the videos were fun!

Re: TRP 11-14-2020

Another balmy 40 degree day at TRP, only a slight cross wind. BP, 'Smoke, Tony, GMJohn, and I were there. I went ready, to the point I removed everything out of the jimmy, right down to the spare and the jack. I had a 1/4 tank of 89 octane and was looking for some good passes. I made 8 passes, the f...

Re: TRP 11-14-2020

Great Saturday November 14th at TRP. Weather was amazing for November. 30’s & 40’s Not the heavy crowd that we had last week. The TrackBird made 6 passes. First Pass ---– 0.1880 reaction 2.3494 60 ft. 18.4264 @ 71.45, driver 32V – poor launch etc. Second Pass – 0.5876 reaction 2.3350 60 ft. 16.2...

Re: iRacing ChampCar events 2020

It was Wednesday the 11th of November, I wanted to take in the iRace version 14 at the Virginia International Raceway (VIR). So, I rented a C8 Corvette and hopped on to I 77 which took me within 75 miles of VIR. It’s 530 miles to the track, took me 6 hours to get there. The weather was pretty good, ...

Re: Saturday Surprise November 7th

Thankfully I didn't fill the TrackBird tank for a day at Nelson Ledges,
but I will be filling the front tires with 45 pounds of air, 28 in the rear
for a T-N-T at TRP. Get the Bird some numbers.

I believe TrackBird may never have run better then right now.
