Re: Nelson Ledges 11/2

I arrived a little late but was rewarded with another ride in the TrackBird when it was in action. Not sure about lap times, but my ride was very different and allot more aggressive then last time.

Re: TRP 2019 11/01/19

Sorry, no pictures. I did go to TRP today. the 442 showed up and was first in line, My Jimmy was second, then we waited. It was about an hour before they were ready to run. I only counted four other cars, but there might have been more but not more than 10. Sunny and mid 40's, but very cold cross wi...

Re: TRP 2019

Great pictures, wish I was there.

I will have my jimmy out at TRP in the early AM this Saturday
If conditions are good (low 40s and dry).

After some runs I'll head out to Nelson Ledges for Track Day,
if the TrackBird is there.

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

I did take the TrackBird for a small test ride out to Rick's Garage. There were no surprises, steered as normal and there are no spots on the 32v garage floor. These small mods are just the beginning of something. Not sure were this is going but I can't wait. DSCF9238.JPG DSCF9239.JPG DSCF9231.JPG F...

Re: Quickest Cars on Tiresmoke

I just updated my entry in the current ride list, don't think I'll catch the V-Caddy's numbers,
I do expect to improve on the Jimmy's statistics.

Fred32v - 2018 GMC Canyon 14.64 @ 94.21 2.21676 60' (1/8th 9.4556, 74.89 mph) - Street

Definitely a fun list.

Where was the old Saturn fellow that would take pictures?

(like Rodney Dangerfield said) I tell you, the TrackBird got no respect!

Re: 2019 Hawaii Cruising Vacation

Ok, VERY Nice piece of work. The total rebuild and the YouTube presentations!

Just curious, when and how long did it take you to do the complete makeover?

Re: 2019 Hawaii Cruising Vacation

Somebody took all the GMC emblems off, but I think I know that just wasn't paying attention.
Besides, I like it better as a GMC, it's somehow related to my Canyon. Fun!

2019 Hawaii Cruising Vacation

Cruising is always fun, but this one had a great dinner table, for me, mostly because I finally sat with a “real” car guy. For the sake of this post I’ll call him “Saskatchewan Don”. 20191014_190538.jpg He has an S10 Pickup (really a GMC S15, my bad) that he has had for a long time, it went from bei...

Re: Nelson Ledges Track Day 10/16/19

I was there with my camera, took one still and two videos. DSCF9229.JPG I can't even express how much fun I had riding along in to lengthy sessions. Just watching the Highway Patrol Car leave us provided me with a little rush of pride. I knew the extra 220+ wasn't helping TrackBird's lap times. You ...

Re: TRP 2019 09/25/19

We were hoping for cooler weather to chase some numbers, that never happened but we went anyway. There were a lot of cars tonight, so BP said let's run in the Stock class since they won't be calling Trucks until much later and we didn't want to wait. So TireSmoke members was in the Stock Eliminator,...

Re: 2019 Driving Vacation

It was fun following you, the Cossick Farm is in Togo, MN.,
not too far from Bemidji, the home of Paul Bunyan. :)
