Somebody post video!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like fun!
Had a great time at my first HAMB outing. Got to meet a few cool folks and check out some very nice rides....
L.A.W. with the win.congrats.I think you had an advantage with the Jobe finger lift.Either way good going
Was such a good time, good friends, beer, and fast cars, what could be better?!? Thanks so much to Bryan for putting this together, from the looks of the turnout, it's gonna be a regular thing!
The Deora, on the other hand, choked big time...
Thanks for putting that together. But I still think there was something fishy going on with the left lane! My Mooneyes car could stay on the track! Either way both my cars were out first round, but the drinks were cheap all night! Good Stuff!
Damn, that was fun... just plain fun! Well done, Brian!
My pics are here.
Awesome! That was alot of fun last night, thanks for everyone who came out and ran cars...or just came out and watched. Lots of good fun, a little smack talk here and there...had some close racing especially the final! Moe and LAW with a 4 run, last race determines...true heads up racing! Final cars were Moe's sweet stock car survivor and LAW's corvette...she just needed a little staging help!
I've got some things to work out with the track, there was a distinct right lane advantage but overall I think it worked out pretty well.
So how many of you are going to be raiding Toys R Us and Target now? ;-)
Awesome pics Blake!
Ok, we'll do this again in a month, I'll try and work out some kinks with the track, you guys get your cars together and we'll do it again!
Let me start by saying
. Jobe .. Brilliant, you have single handedly made the Dog and Duck night
To everyone that did not make it to the final
You guys and gals raced hard, and there are some fast cars out there
Next time remember, if your not happy with your race results
.. stomp your feet and protest a do over
with a coin flip
. and do pick the faster lane
... Last night it was the right
. About 5 car lengths to be exact
. That can make you a winner
every time !!! ......
I never knew taking second place could be so much fun !!!
Jobe ..... and congrats to LAW ... the victor...
That was alot of fun ! I was hoping my twin engine dragster was gunna' pull it off , guess Im going to have to look for a faster ride ... and good lord Blake, I look like I about 8 beers into it, I guess I missed the "smile now" part of the picture taking process
Javier - it wasn't the finger lift that gave me the advantage, it was the blowing on the car after each run! Thanks - it was a blast!
Brian - thank you for setting this up. Obviously it was a huge success. I cannot believe my "mid life crisis" corvette took the title. The right lane was definitely faster, but hey, winning the coin toss is part of the race!
Moe - we definitely need a rematch. I know I was a tad competitive but I blame that on the beer!
Blake - great pics!
Good times for sure.
Great time last night, even though I lost to L.A.W. & DW
I found a site this morning dedicated to diecast racing and modifications. Lots of interesting info on which brand is faster and how to make them faster.
Thanks Jobe for putting this together.
sounds like a slew of fun was had... hope to make it out next time... and think i have a fix for the rubber tire bounce previously listed by april may... cnat wait to see if it works...
I missed it but I'll be there next time!!
Bryan, thanks for taking a conversation and turning it into a fun night. Next time we might need a section of bleachers...dang! I can't stop looking at Blake's photos - that straight up Maniac portrait of DW is fantastic.
Congrats Laura W!
You other fuckers may have prizes, or purses, or pinks, but in Austin on a monday night racing toys in a parking lot, we play for GLORY...pure and simple.
that looked like a good time, it would be awsum to see something like that take off in houston
ya'll heard me laughing while I wrote that...right?
Yea, we know. Us other fuckers were still unpacking our "Hot Rods" from "Drag Racing" at "Little River Dragstrip" on Sunday. Sorry just wasn't able to get the oil, nitro, and hunks of burned rubber off everything in time to make the hot wheels race. We feel like such losers, maybe next time.
You could have brought your oil,nitro,and hunks of burned rubber to the Dog and Duck,we don't mind.Hope the real drags were as fun as our Hot Wheels one was.
this Effin ROCKS!!! holy Crap.. to hell with moving to San Antonio, I should pass that hole up, and head for AUSTIN!!!! Anyone need a machinist? lol
ok I had to edit this, I should build me a chassis, and make a 1/64th custom using my old Prosthetic eye. Or is that too sick? haha
make a SEE-cab out of it...hahahaha
next time i'm forced to visit the in-laws in corpus crusty I'll bring the track! ;-)
easy there Bill, you're not sposed to smoke the nitro! makes you all angry and jittery...didn't they teach you that at "hot rod High?"
Cool, I will only be here a couple of more months though, I graduate from college this friday with my Associates in CNC/Industrial machining. I am gonna finish fixing up the house, and then moving outta Corpus Crusty... Been here too long.. So I am in the market for a job now. Just have to finish up down here. My wife & son are already in San Antonio, but my Daughter and I are finish up school this year here Keep in touch though, I am gonna have to make it up there soon, its only an hour or so away from our place in SA
That sure was a bunch of fun. And great pictures Blake!
