I don't know which race I liked less, yesterday's or last year's series of 10 lap heat races.

This used to be one I looked forward to and even considered it being my first event attended - some day.

Look out! I'm starting to get an opinion about the Car of Today! frown

We need some PASSING -- ON THE TRACK!!!!

We were on a road trip, so we listened to the race on sirius. Hubby called the speeding pit move by Montoya about a lap before he pitted. Couldn't believe it!

I was hoping for a fifth Martin victory, especially since I had him picked. grin

What's the deal with Knaus not kissing the bricks like everyone else?

They showed the team doing the "hat dance" and smooching the bricks every time they put on a new hat, but Knaus would just bend over and pretend and never got close. Even the women on the line were picking the grit out of their teeth after each time they did it.

    • Any thoughts on the new CORE-ICE 6.5′ x 12′ Adventure Trailer.  Looks like a great design!  Is this the first year for them?  I don't find much on the web about them.    
    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
