NSR GT-3 Slot Car Racing – Round-2 – Apr 24 2021

Share this page with:

Our 2nd round included prodigul sons Randy, Alejandro(alex) and David fielding cars. Russ proxied for Alex while
Dave, Marty, Randy, John, Steve, and Mark L drove their own cars, working as marshals in their off heats.  Russ was fully suited-up in his Darth Vader helmet and N99 full face mask.

The cars were more sorted out this round, but the NSR tires (and balance issues) seemed to still cause problems for many teams. The racing was tight and exciting but as with anything where people have “been away” for several months some heats were – as my dog used to say as he dragged his butt across the floor- RUFF!

At 4-years old in Pensacola I repaired my steering linkage on my Ford Pedal-car. Dad later converted this car to a Blue Angel with ailerons and elevators with a working "stick/yoke"; the rudder was controlled by the steering wheel. I like all motorsports - I grew up going to a NASCAR Feeder track with Sportsman and Modified classes, and was lucky to attend drag races in 1970 at Orange County Raceway. My first solder-iron was a Christmas gift at 9yo; I modified T-Jets to be AFX spec before AFX Cars were in local stores. I rebuilt a few tractor & car (SIMCA) engines plus transmissions by 15yo (I still have my ring-compressor and valve spring tool) I am a former mountain and road bike geek & perennial sound engineer.
