    Default BANG!

    Sites have been a yawner lately with little but bad news (nobody's fault, not a lot happening).
    Going through pictures on a quest for something recently I grouped the messiest engine failures I have shot together.
    The all got down safely, obviously, if expensively...

    Nice shots Leo. thanks for posting.

    As for slow, no kidding, this site is slow. If you look and who's online, right now there are 4 members and 29 guests.

    Too bad all those guest don't come out of the closet and participate here.

    I know my son is one of them, he says he visits here at least twice a day

    I know I visit but don't post a lot anymore.
    I think a lot of the really knowledgeable members here and at other sites seem to get pounced on when they do. Usually by others that no not of what they speak.
    Just my opinion though...

    It really is sad. Just the people I know, maybe not current information, but a lot of history and stories that are very interesting. I don't know why they don't participate.

    I checked a couple weeks ago and there were 40-60 people online every couple days.

    This year seems very secretive and I don't know why that is. I asked one of the Ezell members what they know about Reno besides the Bear not coming etc... Lylia's engine program=secret, La Patrona or Kitty Kitty coming?=secret.

    Made an attempt on here to find out what Muszala Jr. is bringing...=secret

    Sport class? All I get is "wait and find out"...

    Voodoo's mods??=secret... no pictures etc...

    JCP was planning on bringing Bee and Sneak Attack last year and that fell through, is this year a no-go again?

    Is POF racing any of the mustangs? The site says 2 of them are coming.. Heritage Flight only...?

    Grim Reaper?

    People know things and nobody is saying. Hell I was looking at old threads from 2013-2014 and RARA gave out the entry list in mid July.

    Was last year the same story?



    *Also huge thanks to Graeme Frew and Full Noise Race #35 for posting updates pretty much daily on Insta and FB... and their plane is in a freaking crate in the middle of the ocean!!!!!
