To make an old truck competitive (old iron heads with original castings) would be a serious weight reduction, possibly some lower height. That is something Tech would have to look at. Keep adding/reducing weight to make it close. Other tracks use this formula, and it works. It also keeps costs down. Less incentive to buy the top dollar part, when you knees are going to be removed.

Big O's Thunder class uses this rule, and it works. Most guys cars are anywhere from 4-10,000 bucks. Which is reasonable nowadays, considering the cars last forever (the rules do not vary).

Not an expert, just tried it, refused to listen to conventional thinking, broke all the parts trying

Email sent.  I've been tinkering a bit with the truck, since it's sat for over a year, but mostly just new brakes, balljoints, etc.  I was toying with converting it to road course, but other than a R/F spring change I haven't done much yet.  And I have the old spring.

I think all it's gonna need to be legal is the ride height adjustment, and new exhaust pipes.  Oh and the 8" tires...  ::)

Also, email Dougy or I can get a hold of Shaun Potvin for you if you want, in regards to the 43 truck.  I know it's still for sale too, though I don't know what he wants for it.

As a 7 yr sponsor of the 39 truck, the crew have made it a front runner. It WILL be sold. Who's buying. They will support the the Junior Graduates if you ask. 20-25 trucks shouldn't be difficult. Let's start marketing now.

Lemme know how serious this guy is DJ, because my driveway is single file.  Once my cars and/or trailers get buried in snow it's kinda done for the winter.  :D

Just going to throw my 2cp in.

I raced for the first time full time this year. For 3 years before that I chased rules. I ran this year on next to no budget, no sponsors, just my pay check every week, and it sucked but I made it work. To top it off, I got faster, I won a heat race, yeah its just a heat race but felt like a feature to this guy.

But anyways, my truck (18) is currently rebuilt, after getting destroyed lap 1 of the heat race in the last race, the motor got pulled this month, I've had two people interested in it as a complete but when it came to it they were just tire kickers. I've bought a Super Stock for next year, and have some great sponsors that have made that happen for 2014. It was a deal I could not pass up to say the least.

The problem with the whole deal is, if these people who keep saying "oh id buy a truck if i knew what was going to happen" would just shut their traps buy a truck and get it ready for 2014 there would be a class, there would be 10-15 trucks. The rules are locked, and they are decent, besides the few dumbshit changes they made this year, like carb spacers (that everyone freaking had) 2 1/2" exhaust to 2 1/4" for no freaking reason. The tires are great, they last a long time, my left side tires are still like new and they have ran 8 friday's, 3 monday's they are great tires once they are broke in and they don't come apart (heat cycle heat cycle heat cycle)(which I had 2 do this year 230$ down the drain on manufacture fuck up)

There's a couple good trucks there ready and waiting. I know that I am moving up and the 55 Gary is moving up next year beyond that I'm not sure. its a good class, you take out 55 / 39 and everyone is close within a few tenths of each other and that's the way it should be.

Hey Adam, can you tell me where your truck came from as well as anyof the others out there this year, I have been contacting the guy that used to have truck when we raced in 06 and 07 to see where these truck are, or went, I was out of it for too long and I am just trying to track who has what truck, which ones are new, and which ones are still sitting around in shops or barns. Thanks

Well it's easy to say that now your moving out the class. Tires actually last longer   That's exciting. I'm pretty sure 7 is do e as well as 39. Class is shrinking fast

Look up top and you'll see Mickey Brydges truck for sale. (17) He had it setup pretty good his last year of full time racing before he went off to school. Good news is that he says if it doesn't sell he may be back full time racing next summer. I hope he does. I helped him out a few times at the track. Good kid and good racer.

I wasn't planning on moving out of the class, but when you get a deal as good as I got kind of hard to say no. I had every intentions of buying Gary's truck (55) at season end and running it for a championship in 2014, but like I said, got a situation where I couldn't say no. My truck may be at the track full time anyhow with another driver, that's up to him to get his butt in gear and get the sponsors to run which he's doing so not exactly losing my truck.

The tires take a bit to get used to I found but once you've run em they are great, I ran the same left side tires all year and two sets of rights only because I had recap issues. That's a lot better than buying 3-4 sets a year to stay up near the front.

Last I heard, 39 is running late models now, heard a rumour Trevor is buying the 39 (like i said rumour don't quote me), also heard the 7 was going to come and run a full time schedule. 77 is coming back (he just bought a nose cone for his) 22 is coming back his truck is about ready already, 73 I'm sure will be back, 95 will be back, last I heard 88 will be out there full time, there's lot of time yet, its only end of oct/nov now still lots of time for people to come out of the wood work toward year start.
