I can vouch for that! I was there Thursday nite when he did it! Eric, Who WAS that little kid with the monster reaction time?
I also had the pleasure of meeting Eric's dad Ed, A REAL nice guy. You can see where Eric gets his enthusiasm from! ;)

Well, the Blue Max is done (I'll post pics later). I changed engines. It's now running a Group 20 .550 Big Block with 9/60 gears. It's best et is .988 and just today it hit it's best top speed at 66mph!

Well, the Blue Max did it's first model show a couple weeks ago and I am very pleased. I added the rest of the kit parts. I still need to add the plug wires. Most people diddn't realize it was a slot car until they read the description.

Old car, new progress. After a fall carrying the car into a show I put it away for a while. In the last couple weeks I took the car completely apart, resoldered the metal frame, repaired the plastic frame, repainted the frame and got a new driver figure. The new driver has separate arms so I was able to add the steering wheel. Next is wired magnetos, fuel lines, oil lines, and a new body.
