This year sucks

Post  powerstrokeace on September 2nd 2013, 11:44 am

Well after all the problems we have had this year we have something else to work on. Saturday morning on our 1st time run the car shook real hard 100 feet out and the kid pulled it over an we broke 1/3 of the the theeth on the ring gear. Man after this the only thing that's not new is the body panels and the wheels and tires . Rough year is all I can say.

On the bright side ACE your avatar is finally right side up. I thought I was the only one who was having a rough year. Car I help out on has had everything from ignition issues to trailer tire flats,to a tree falling on the tow vehicle, a fuel pump to a hole in a brand new slick. They have been to 2 races this summer without any issues and I was not at either one of them . I think I am the Jinx.............

I have chased carb. problems all year and finally got those figured out Sunday. Then I think I broke the converter. To top it off I have won 1 round of racing this year since I bought the box from you. I feel your pain!
