When you stop getting older, they put you in a box and throw dirt on top of you. Kinda like being stuck on the outside of a turn at the Rage At The River for the Trophy Truck race. So beware of Skidmark's advice. Ain't none of us getting out of this trap alive anyway! :shock: 8) :)

Warren should be in his room at the Tropicana. Not sure who from the group will be there racing this time. The wife and I aren't going, so I haven't been paying attention. Wish I was. The entry list is amazing and sick!

that's a purdy looking new front end you got there!

I like those raised uni-ball spindle assembles.

Eye candy!
If you feel you are picking up speed you may be going downhill.

Remember... there is a difference between growing up and growing older :wink: .

Nice looking parts for sure!

I can't even make out what they do, but I can see enough to know it'd cost me a kidney. :(

Your mantra for today is "Skidplate".

If it doesn't protect the beam it ain't a skidplate.
