I love the look of the Govner casting and think it would be cool to have a all govner race

I will somehow fit it in.....I'm in.

I'll do my best to get two finished I'll keep you posted.  Went to the collectible toy store today and found the Gov'ner I needed (already had one) and 6 FTE's I was stoked.


The tough part isn't really building the car. Most of my early FTE donor cars look too neat and rare to be used as donors.

Voxxer Racing is in.

Builds almost complete, never modded a plastic body before so I did a simple paint job.  Just have to add weight now, i'll try and post pics tonight when I'm finished.


couple in the works...

Start on my two on Tuesday or Wednesday, basic drill, pop the axels,  polish, get jiggy with it, weight and graphite.

Sounds good

My teams estimated delivery is Friday the 14th....looking forward to the racing action.

League of Speed has reached race destination.

Sorry haven't ran the race yet with Easter and everything this weekend.  However everything is set up for tomorrow night, bracket printed, boxes near track etc.  So my sole purpose will be running the race tomorrow night.  Total field of 8...  Stay Tuned...

Traction-Event

Congrats TractionEvent who barely squeaked by Voxxer racing for the win!

Race is in the books, We had a few matches within .003 seconds of each other. Video in a few days, here is the bracket...

Times in parenthesis.
