Re: K-it Fwd: NHMS Edition (again)

Hey guys, I'm trying to get some tires/rims lined up for Road America, can anyone tell me if the super duper k has the later 5x100 bolt pattern, or the earlier reliant 4 bolt pattern.

She has a five lug wheel.  Spoil her all you want.  She'll break your heart if you let her.

Re: K-it Fwd: NHMS Edition (again)

It has eight wheels, four of which are super-wide.  The tire size that seems to work in all combinations of mounting are 205/50/15.  All eight tires the K presently has mounted are completely trashed.

Re: K-it Fwd: NHMS Edition (again)

Thank you, I just want to make sure we have round tires this weekend.  Did the brakes get fixed?  Maverick told me they were locking up, and I forgot to ask him if they are ok now.

Not too sure what will become of K.  Odds are it will be chained and welded to some jack-stands at 24HLHQ so that passerby's for generations to come can stop and enjoy all thing K.

What should happen to it is that we build a pylon in the parking lot of Lemons HQ and put the K up on it for permanent static display like a retired fighter jet at an air force base. With a memorial at the base that says "K It Forward!" on one side and lists the names of the teams & drivers on the back, like a war memorial.

I just mentioned this to Nick and Jay.  Their response: all involved: banned for life.

LOL. How about it just shows up on a display pylon in Phil's front yard one day?

Re: K-it Fwd: NHMS Edition (again)

My front yard is smaller than the footprint of the K. How about someone just feeds the K straight into the crusher while we all stand around cheering?

Hey, all the ones on sticks around my side of the base are still flyin'.  'Tis a museum you'll be wanting!

I was at the air show at Wright-Patterson AFB in the summer of 1994 when the B-2 made its first public airshow flyover. That was crazy. It was maybe 5,000 feet off the deck but you couldn't hear it at all as it approached, and you really didn't believe your eyes either, because it just looked like a hyphen in the sky. It was awesome.

When they do the flyover at the start of the Rose Parade every New Year's day, they make their final turn at the intersection of the CA-2 and CA-134 freeways, then follow Colorado Boulevard east to Pasadena.   I live on top of the hill overlooking that intersection, so I get a fantastic view of the plane only a few hundred feet above me.   By the time they get to Pasadena, just a few miles away, they are below me.   I wonder what they will do this year, what with sequestration.   A couple of CAP guys in Cessna 150s?

We were racing out at Vegas first weekend of October. Saw  two B-1B's take off from Nellis. Serious decibels there...
