changing hobbies

ive drafted this post no less than 1000 times (in my mind ).. and was possibly the most difficult decision ive made in a long time

ive found a new hobby that has completely consumed me, just like overclocking and folding did 4 years ago ,only this time it includes speed and nitromethane ...kinda like overclocking,

anyways I'm going to shut down my folding rigs for now ,with the exception of my main rig, which will continue to make a contribution to team 45

well here is the hobby ("edit" if i wasn't such an idiot the picture would be here)

notice the tranny sitting on the green rig... ripped that out on the 2nd week, doing reverse dough-nuts ... up side, the parts were only 6 bucks

40 MPH + and FWD ...Krazy


ok now for the selfish part ... so that i can feel good about quiting the team, I'm going to give away two of my folding machines...compleate

a 1.4 tbird,and a 1.2 tbird

THE CONTEST

to qualify for the give away you "needed" to be a member of the folding team "yesterday", and willing to pay for shipping out side of the US,(inside of the "US" its on me )



each person will pick a number between 0 and 1 million

i sent the numbers to daniel just a few minutes ago...

I know how hobbies can go. Mines been on jack stands in the garage for the last 10 months.
I'd probably have a new hobby too if I tried your new hobby.

OK here goes.

528589

My method for picking the number...
turned my head and hit the key pad.

when you said 'speed and nitromethane', I started to
get excited. they are smaller than I thought 'cause
the one I want, you get in it to make it go 200+mph.
have fun and we'll see you around for sure

Very generous of you Kat.

Good luck in your new hobby, and you'll have to keep us updated on your new "builds".


My guess is 27903

Have fun Kat. I myself have a T-maxx w .21 Conversion and over $1500 in aluminum upgrades. I recently purchased a HPI Savage that is the next project. May sell my "Stock" Maxx to finance the Savage.

Thanks for the generous donation......

My number is 22767
