Labor Day Weekend - 08.30.2013, 09:10 AM

Just wondering what everyone had planned for this Labor Day Weekend?

This will be my first time using my RC Truggies this year. I'm excited to get them out and the dust blown off of them.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

I guess I will update my own thread, since no one else seemed very interested in it.

Brought my D8T out for the first run this year. My son and I went to a skate park and it was all going good until I went off the biggest jump there and broke the rear body mount and one of the terminals on the battery that I was using came loose. So that was the end of my day. I'll be finishing the repairs tonight and next weekend I'll go back to that skate park to master that large jump.

This time with video.

Hope you all had a good weekend,
Nick

Glad you had some fun, down in Australia we don't celebrate labour day, wish we did tho, I love long weekends lol... You are brave going to the skate park, very unforgiving when you are a terrible driver like me ;-)

I went home for my grandfather's 90th birthday. Had a pretty good family reunion. Drove my truggy a bit, crashed my tricopter, drove my car up into the mountains. Had a good time.

I spent most of the Labor Day weekend putting a door in wall of my garage that faces towards the yard, and then cleaning up & organizing the entire garage to free up some space (probably just to fill it back up with more crap! lol).

I'm very happy I spent the time to do this though, because the garage is much more usable now, and I have more space to work!

And after

Thanks Nick

haha yeah my old man gave me that banner. I like Dodge's pickups a lot, but unless we're talking late 60's Mopars, I'm actually a big Ford fan. I just put that banner up because I thought it was kinda cool...and the wall needed something.

It's all in good fun Travis. I knew you would be able to take a little joke.

I'm a big GM guy myself. I like the BFG poster with the 5.0 on it. That's right from my era.

haha oh yeah its all good man!

That BF Goodrich banner with the yellow notchback on it has gone everywhere with me since I lived at home. Reason being...my first car was a fox body ('90 LX Hatch), which I painted the same color! haha

Shortly after I painted the car, I got that BFG banner from a friend, and its been in every garage I've had since then. Unfortunately though, I don't have my stang anymore. Was my only car for several years, so I had to drive it through the winter...and here in central IA and IL, winter roads are hard on older vehicles. Gobbles them right up, one rusty fender at a time

Just for old times sake, here she is

Looks like a fun car. Was the drivetrain stock or all modded. I like picking on those in my Typhoon.

The drivestrain was stock, but the suspension needed some attention when I got it, so I put some H&R springs and Koni yellow shocks on it. But other than that, and a fresh paint job, it just got driven. Didn't have the car anymore by the time I got a job that gave me money I could've thrown at it.

Typhoon...wasn't that basically GMC's version of the blazer?

The Typhoon is a GMC but it was a limited production AWD V6 single turbo. GMC also made a Syclone, which was a pickup with the same drivetrain. Mine has been 11.6 in the 1/4 so far, hoping for a high 10 sec pass soon.

Ah ok, didn't know all that. Sounds like yours must be pretty healthy to be running 11's. Not bad, not bad at all. Care to share some pictures?

Ouch WheelMan! Telling nastety92 a typhoon is just gmc's version of a blazer is like saying the mustang is just ford's version of the mercury capri, or like a mercury marauder is just mercury's version of a ford crown vic. Hmmmm. Not the best analogies, the point being there is no such thing as just a typhoon.

Ooooh oooh ooh- here's a good analogy- telling nastety92 a typhoon is just gmc's version of a blazer, is like saying a buick grand national is just buick's version of a monte carlo. Yep. That's an apt analogy.

Good job on the door. At first I was like, whoa, that's a big job. But then I saw the window so you already had a header in place. Nice work, it looks clean. And yes, that is a nice man cave. Love the RR!
