Topic: 2 races. @ No posts.

So what's the deal? Am I the only one who cares? It's got it's own complete section of the forum...

And nothin'.

Is anyone even racing this thing?

Re: 2 races. @ No posts.

Nope. It was lawn art the last two races.

We tried to get it out on the track. But it was not registered.

Ok, thanks. Sounds like maybe nobody wants to be responsible for blowing up or breaking / wrecking someone else's stuff. Maybe with the K there was a pretty clear, "We don't care what happens to it" attitude. Maybe the Rambler is kinda too cool to not care about.

I'll stop asking. Appreciate the responses.

Re: 2 races. @ No posts.

No racing, either. I think the Rambler deserved I Got Screwed. Not the team, but the car itself.

Yea it hasn't been the NSF "We just don't care what happens" style with the Rambler. They apparently want this car back at the end, and not as razor blades or burned in protest on John Rambler's front lawn.

But it will be in Steve McDaniel and Corey's hands again soon, they'll make it go out on track out of sheer force of will if need be.

Re: 2 races. @ No posts.

Yeah it was pretty disappointing to see the ol gal just sitting in the paddock for two races in a row, hope this thing gets some track time soon!

1. Take keys
2. Start car
3. Drive on track

Double-check with the Lemons folks, but I really don't think they'd even care at this point if it's registered or not.

Re: 2 races. @ No posts.

Steve took it out a few laps at cmp.

It might have taken 5 years, but the Rambler once again rambles on.

edit: when did the Rambler last run before this weekend?

Details about the rambling? People are interested. There are dozens of us.

It now has a 3.8L Ford V6 and a microsquirt, plus all the updates to make it safe after a 5+ year hiatus from Lemons racing.

There were about four dozen "punch list" items that the car needed before it was ready to race, so we didn't get in on track until Sunday afternoon. It did 10 laps, but we discovered a hydraulic system leak and decided to call it "good enough" at that point (no parts, little time left to race).

Qualitatively, the car wasn't that bad to drive!  She's down on power (needs tuned), has no instrumentation, the seating position is rubbish (for a tall guy like me), and the brakes are ambiguous at best....

.... but hot damn if I wasn't ready to start pushing it by the time I had promised I would pull off the track to make sure the car wasn't totally disintegrating from beneath me big_smile
