    Completed Rocky Mountain Race Week. Finished 17th out of 50 in the 12.0 index class. Went 11.96 once, 11.95 once, but couldn't claim those runs and had to backpedal for legal runs. Won first round of the bracket race but it cost me 3 ribs of the blower belt; Lost second round in a close race. AC...

    Who moderates this forum?

    Fury and I rarely get on. We both have super intensive day jobs, and we're here to keep the lights on more than anything else. We do get a giant red exclamation mark at the top of all pages when there are reported posts in queue. So yes, we see every post that is reported. But sometimes action...

    Thanks for the feedback @BobbyFord . I'll look and see if anything stands out in logs.

    I need a hat, a chain for my wallet & a can of snuff.

    I can see the sidewalls being softer for sure. As mentioned above, I saw a trailer the other day that had super singles on the front axle and duals on the back axle. Seems to me that such configuration would make the trailer super prone to wandering. The scrub profile while turning would be...

    I need a hat, a chain for my wallet & a can of snuff.

    So I saw an interesting one today that reminded me of @dpkimmel2001 . It was a live bottom trailer that has super singles on the front axle and traditional duals on the rear axle. It took me a second to register it - at first I thought the outer dual was removed, because SS's are so much...

    Instant Pot---Roast

    I thought this was going to be the meme going around about popeye cooking a brisket in a mailbox. Friend of mine hit his mail with an IR gun after I sent it to him - 160* inside. So you probably could. Alas,

    Cup RACE thread ---- Atlanta

    I love Hamlin pulling the "I'm just here so I don't get fined" equivalent of "I know you want an answer but i'm not giving it"

    Cup RACE thread ---- Atlanta

    Feel bad for Lajoie. A top-5 could have done them very well. But can't blame him for not lifting. I think a last minute dive to the bottom would have had the same end result anyways, grip seemed to be falling away. His only "real" option would have been to move left half a lane, met Chase...

    If anybody has seen the Episode of Roadkill where they take the Rubber Duck Firebird on Rocky Mountain Race Week 2.0 last year, I made a cameo appearance at the end of the show. https://photos.app.goo.gl/8AQGa7eZKFr5dcA6A https://photos.app.goo.gl/Wr26brwf4wWL8aeX9...

    Johali's Rate Cup race --- Sonoma

    Agreed. 7's about the most I could give it. Feel like the new car is definitely making the road courses racier mid-pack, but the haves and have-nots are getting further apart. It's nice seeing it back in drivers' hands, but the crew chiefs need to get the tire situation under control.

    Most probably don't know the name. He was an NHRA racer for years, then "retired" from driving and was a full-time announcer across the country. He announced in Baton Rouge and Phoenix this year, but started getting sick & had some screenings done. He missed our OklaCity race, and revealed he...

    5.7 Hemi valvetrain issues...

    Couple weeks ago had the CEL come on for oil pressure switch performance. Scrolled in the VHIC and pressure was down about 10psi from recalled normal - still over 20psi idle and over 40psi cruise. Had an oil change done ASAP and pressures went back to 30/55+. A week and a half goes by, I'm...
