For anyone who does not know, Brian helps run a team of girls in their go carts. They have been on a terror as of late winning many races.

Way to go Brian with all you do for those girls. They have been awesome as of late.

Thanks Tom. Krissy is really dominationg her class as of late. Even the tech inspector was laughing at me, next week we tear down everything on your kart. By the way, Burger won the mod feature last night in Redwood Falls. Joe was 4th in the Stock car class. His 421 cubed small block is for sale, it doesn't work in the Stock car, but I know of a modified that it will work just fine in wink

The mod will be ready to go next week after we get to the dyno to check the carb jetting out.

Brian, I think you told me the answer to this but I forgot. Do you run Arlington or Redwood? Or maybe both?

Just Arlington for now. It's a limited schedule there and later this summer we will go to other tracks like Toner's Lake and Blue Earth

Joe is scheduled for surgery this Thursday morning , besides the colon cancer, he also has a stomach hernia to get fixed. Preliminary findings state that the cancer is just in his colon. I'll give you a shout in the evening.

For those of you following this, he is the father of the twins in my avatar, I'm their Godfather. Joe and I have been friends since our high school days( along with Sifty)and I have been his crew chief in all of the Voss Racing endeavers for the past 22 years at Arlington Raceway.

I was waiting for you to post it Brian.

The girls are all having a great year.

Thanks Tom. I'm waiting to get ahold of the video from this past weekend and get that uploaded as well. Crazy decision before the feature, I changed out Megan's carb with the spare and it came to life. And that spare carb wouldn't work worth a darn on Sarah's last year.

Some Briggs restricted carbs on jr motors will not work to well on a adult motor. Depends on what the builder does to the carb for whatever class.

All 3 run adult carbs, as Krissy and Megan run a .575" restricter so there's not much of a differance. In fact the spare that is now on Megan's is the "biggest" of them all, .0005" from being illegal. The rest are at .0015" from max. The only small carb I have is on Pat's cart as that is a .425 restricter.

Anyone???

Maybe we can get a couple of dates and see what works.

Tom, would your son be at the same tracks as the Voss girls?

I haven't been to Arlington yet this year. I would be in for a get-together if the date worked for me.

Yes, Clint is there almost every week. If we wanted to all throw in a few dollars, we could rent the deck in the infield for the night.

I could check into what it would cost.

Tom if you could check into it we can get a head count and see if this will work.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*
