Dateline: 09, February, 2013...NSC Sponsors
As of this date Supertires and BSRT have joined to sponsor the NSC event for this year, 2012/13.
And now Alan Mirarchi of JW's HO Speed Parts and Resin Dude have joined the list of NSC Sponsors. As soon as I get a full list of sponsors I will post them.
a Dateline: 27, January, 2013...New Part(Front End) Approved!
The current rule for AFX Modified Coupes calls for a 3/16 wide deep dish front end. With this being a bit difficult to come up with along with a scavenging of parts to create a legal front end Alan Mirarchi of JW Speed Parts was contacted. And he was able to offer the following. I have his prototype and it has been seen by our rules guru and others as well. The decision was to approve this front end as it solves an ongoing problem and adds to ther aesthetics of the Modified Coupes. I will say that it is a quality part and as well as add looks it should help the car stabilize in the corners.
Here is the email from Alan Mirachi of JW Speed Parts with part#, description and order example:The part number will be E14WP. It is $7.95 and is available in aluminum, brass, white plastic or black plastic. The tires can be supplied in any size up to .480. See the following example for ordering information. Example (E14WP-B-.405.) This would be the new front end in brass with .405 tires.
The event promoted here below has been in the works for sometime now. The organizer is a well known gentleman, TJ Mottola. TJ has been an avid racer and model builder for many years. And he has created what has become a preferred annual event and into it's 10th year, the popular New England Saturday Night Thunder Event. And as good as his facility was it is getting better all the time as he upgrades and improves.
But TJ now is trying to create the King Of Dirt event which will be at the Townsmen Club nearby to Harrisville in Northern Rhode Island. TJ is looking to create this to evolve into a signature event known for it's prestigious atmosphere and hopefully it's caliber of races. But it needs YOU the RACER. Please take some time and read about the event. If you have questions TJ has provided his phone# and email address. With your help this can be a fantastic event. And YOU could be in on this, the 1st King Of Dirt Race. TJ will spare nothing to make this a race to remember!!
