Event Coverage SLOTS OF DOOM are back....Milwaukee hamber's let's race

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by PBRmeASAP, Feb 1, 2013.

  1. We are doing it again....years past it's always been a blast. Some people have 'borrowed' cars and blew them up, people have had to take there wreakage home in a basket. Any way you look at it, it's been fun. Not to mention what else it there to do in February in Wisconsin, it's too cold to work on our cars.
    We got noon to 2 of track time, and plan on crying our eyes out after the races over some beer and pizza next door at the tavern after.

    Cool deal. A little far for me to travel for this event though. Seriously, there needs to be more stuff like this to get everyone out during the winter months. Hope you have a good turnout and all have a blast.

    Damn, if I were anywhere in the upper midwest I'd be there! 'Course, if I were anywhere in the upper midwest right now I'd probably be frozen into a life sized block sort of like a Swede-sicle! Does sound like it would be worth breaking my no temps under 30 degrees rule though...

    now time to start building

    anyone else wanna come run?
     
  11. Lucky Bob's is not too far from me, I think I was in there only once checking it out with a friend.
    Hmmm, rental cars for $10? maybe I'll go. Haven't run a slot car since I was a kid, so I will be really crappy at it...so much more the fun.
     
  12. believe me......non of us are any good.... just a good excuse to do something with like minded people and smash cars up

    I wish I could make this.... Sounds like a helluva lot of fun. I still have my slot cars from 25 years ago. I hope you'll do it again this summer or fall.
     
  14. I've got two of the Johnny Ace Slots of Doom posters!
    I think the only time I buy fresh tires for my cars is for Slots of Doom.
    I'll do my best to make it this year!
     
  15. Damn, I better get to werk on the Slot-Bomb!
    Why is my pic upside down? Its normal when ya click on it. Not a very good pic either.

  19. Hahaha... we have "no class"!


    Blowers are for cheaters!

    Hope that dude doesn't show up looking for me after I destroyed his funny car... "Oh Well"... that's why we call them the "Slots O Doom"!

    You take your chances!

  20. that is awesome. i would love to go, but i live very far away, dont have a car, and have little slot experience. there is a place i can go to though, wish there was some hambers down here to have fun with.
     
  21. If you make it up here don't forget to bring your collection so I can run the piss outa them!

    Tell Brett that he's not allowed to bring that non-traditional PT cruiser for the drags until it is painted anything other than that bovine paint scheme (Holy Cow"!)!!!:eek::D!
     
  22. damn it's getting close...gotta finish the car
     
  23. LUCKY BOBS has a cool set up for multiple track configurations... Circle, Road Race, and Drag... so build a car for each track or build a car for every track.
     
  24. Crap one for each track...I got way to much time into one for one track!
