Shawn,
The first thing I ever raced was a "Monster Truck" so I feel like I have come home. I loved it and all the guys did a great job running the caution laps. Now I have to chose between the Barn and the Alley next Sat. I feel like I have something for Tricky and Lightning on the concrete but,but,but, my "CAR" worked so well on the dirt I cant wait to try it again. I was running a 14/54 combo so I did not have the top speed I wanted. Milling machine and a end mill changed my chassis to acomodate a 16/54 if I choose to.

Looking at the 8-hour radar loop this morning looks like the track got wet about 1:30~2:00. Hope you guy's got the entire race in! I was in rem state about that time..

102 entrys?! That's gotta be a new record!

Anybody know of someone that can mill some material off of a couple of aluminum motor mounts for a reasonable price?
I don't really want to hack off the material with a dremel... I would still like to have the pieces remain looking decent.

Marty,

What do you have in mind to alleviate some aluminum for me?

I am trying to mount a roto-start engine in my buggy.
I basically need to use two sets of motor mounts.
On the bottom set I need to notch out a portion at the top/back so that the roto-start unit will fit, but on the bottom portion of these mounts I need to leave the entire length and at about 4-5mm thick for attaching to the chassis. So this ends up raising the motor by that 4-5mm.
On the top set of mounts I need to lop off the entire back end to clear the roto-start, trim off all but the top 4-5mm of the motor mount and drill out the motor mount threads.

It sounds more complicated than it is. I could get most of it done with a band saw and a belt sander. But, a mill would just make it real neat and pretty in a matter of 10 minutes or so.

Anyway, where you racing at this Saturday? If I can; Iíll run out and do some bench racing with you.

Thanks for responding.

-Tim

Tim,
I plan to race at the Alley. 1/8 Late MODEL. Seeing will make the telling what you want a lot easier. I don't claim to be a machinist but I can probabely rub the alum. off so it will fit.

What ya runnin' for a 1/8th late model Marty?

What time to they start at the Alley?

I picked up a variable speed drill press today as well as ordered a cross slide vise and a couple of end mill bits.

This is going to be a very expensive set of motor mounts.

The body is called a Wain/Lamm . Can only be purchased at Wilson,s exclusive A-Main Graphics. The owners are"CRAZY" about RC Racing that is.
The truck is a Storm SUT. Buggy gone Truggy gone Late Model. Works better as a Late Model than it did as a Truggy. Hate you spent all the money on the drill press and cross slide. I did that and had as much in the two to buy a Smithy. The Smithy was purpose built as a lathe ,milling machine, and drill press. Wish I had gone there first. Racing starts somewhere between three and six Sometimes they feel like a nut, sometimes they dont.
