Chicagoland meet

The heartland

Postby killer_siller » Wed Dec 19, 2007 6:47 pm

i actually got our 4 wheel drive tractor stuck trying to shovel all that snow!

if i could get 5 gt-fours in one place i don't care where it is!

the black MR2 is actually in two pieces right now and on it's way to the scrap yard. i bought another chassis from kevin, if you know him, he was at the mr2oc meet. when i got done stripping the black one it was still too heavy to carry out w/ the tractor, so we cut it in half and took it out in two pieces.

the other chassis is in the process of a full race strip. it's going to be a while, but the end always justifies the means. i'm shooting for weighing less than 2k lbs while retaining the dash and heat functions.

the engine is also in rebuild status down at speed-source. we're going to have some fun with it (*cough* procharger *cough*).

how are the tracs treating you?

red one is good, your old one is still in surgery, plenty more rust repair needed to be done.... in all honesty with the plans you had for it when you owned it i dont think it would have held together... maybe for daily but not for any agressive driving.... start with a better shell if you are going to do it again...

whats the plans for the mr2? track use mostly or street/track type of deal? procharger would be sick on the blacktop! i cant wait for another ride...

haha, are we going to talk about the meet?

my plan is strict streetability: no pillow ball mounts, no solid mounts, streetable springs and struts. it's getting a full race strip, though. which is why i'm starting with the chassis i am. you'd laugh if you saw it. it's in pretty bad shape, but there's no rust!

that's sad about the trac. you should have seen it before it sat. i wish i'd put it in proper storage rather than leaving it in uncaring hands.

no date yet for the mr2. still working the $$$ issue.

you shoot that late and you might as well shoot for the speed-source barbecue.

why don't we do a meet sometime soon, and plan for the speed-source meet in spring.

the bad thing is that we are all spread out so somewhere in the middle will be difficult to find....

jeff, do people still meet up at rt41 and rt30? im going to guess not at this time of the season but i know you did go up there alot didnt you?

i haven't been up there in a bit b/c i've been working in joliet, staying in a hotel...

that i'm aware of they are down for the season.

what about woodfield? we can book the room @ gameworks or something.

being that we all own(ed) all-tracs, we're used to driving to meet people.

here in 2/3 weeks i'll have a garage over in kankakee that's insulated w/ power and all that...
