ugh, it's stripped!

I need some help/input/wisdom/whatever... while installing a new engine mount on a Honda B20, I stripped the threads of its hole on the block. I was assuming (I know, I know) that my only real option was to drill out the hole and re-tap it. then I did a little clicking and discovered HeliCoil insert...

2019 unofficial schedule

from what I understand, the race weekend schedule is all-but-official (see attached document) -- iirc it's just waiting on final approval with the OCSC, which in the past has pretty much been a rubber stamp, but rules is rules and all that... it's not official until it's official... there was also s...

Just got a big box of the most wonderful pictures of Waterford Hills today. They were donated to raise money for the worker's fund. Most are one of a kind. I just don't have words to say how fantastic they are. They are all enhanced and just so cool.
I can't wait to see them!

Re: WHRRI - Live Cam

the camera is showing live footage again now. any time there's an issue with internet connectivity in the tower, it will show an archived image. that has happened at least once that I'm aware of since it was set up. it also fell over/got knocked over at some point last week.

Re: Enforcement of "new" rules on the hill for spectators

I (and I'm confident I speak for many) really appreciate your sober (and sobering) feedback. your experience, as you know -- and, importantly, as we know -- was shared by many during the vintage event. I don't have all the facts, but it is something we are aware of and working on. there was, at a mi...

Re: WEATHER STEWARD

Not sure what happened at the track, but I am kind of glad my plans to race this weekend didn't work out. there was some nearby lightning that paused the last feature race on sunday at lap 1 or 2. it didn't look like it was going anywhere, so the race was called. (seemed like the right call to me t...

ice auger

not really racing related, but maybe there's a taker here? my mom wants to offload an ice auger. don't think it's ever even been used. free to a good home. I can deliver to the track on any race weekend. otherwise, it's located in Ann Arbor.
