Click the thumbnails and ENJOY YOUR VISIT!

I must say "I have the best job in the world". Thats being a father to 4 kids. Of those 4, 3 are boys. John 19 is on his on now. Josh 12 and Justin 6 that enjoy racing. Josh and myself make up Team Hawthorne #5 & #6. Justin will come aboard in the next few years. He is doing very well in the 1/10 scale Legend class and I will soon move him into 1/4 scale. (But, not till I know he is ready). Oh yeah and Stephanie 17, she keeps her brothers in line.

Josh has had a radio in his hand since he was 4, so he is pretty good. He loves to race and thats Great. I don't push the boys so when they are racing its because they want to be. If you happen to run 1/4 scale and get the chance to run with us. Don't worry about the little guy (Josh). He don't mind rubbing fenders. We only have one rule on our team and that is we race with respect. We run clean and we pass clean or we wait. Racing is fun when it is done with respect.

If your getting ready to paint that car or truck for 2001 below you will find some info that will save you lots of time and a few dollars.

This is one of the cars New. You paint the body add a 2 ch radio (I use a PCM) with (3) 1/4 scale servos (1 on the throttle and brake and 2 for the steering) and then fill the tank with c-16 racing fuel and your ready to go racing!

Click here to link you to my Quarter scale custom parts page. You can see how some of the back-up parts for the 1/4 scale cars are made.

Sparkplug spacer used with the NGK brand long reach sparkplugs.
Brake hub almost complete. I have reworked this part to use a tension pin inplace of the set screw. I have also added a pin to lock the brake hub to the gear.
