Thumbs up Hey, We Need Some New Threads Here.

We need some new and exciting threads posted here in the Arizona Chapter. The only things exciting in my life are my Nitro RC truck & our new to us Blazer.I had some issues with the Blazer, it was throwing a P305 code. Which is a misfire in #5 cyl. It only did it when water was introduced to the front of car, (under hood or under truck). So I changed the plug & put on a set of plug wires & I'm pretty sure I got it fixed. Bart, Prescott Honda told me to go get it fixed & have the bill sent to them, but being the old motor head I am I had to fix it myself. I registered on the Blazer Forum & got some helpful tips. You know between you guys & the Blazer forum I just know Bill Gates will be calling me SOON begging me to come to work with him. I'm getting so techy I can't believe it.

I got my HPI Nitro MT2 running this week. It runs great, Maybe I need to fuel inject it & add a computer control system to it. Man the possibilities are growing. I might have to come out of hiding, I mean retirement. I can see I'm going to be in BIG DEMAND SOON.

Kermmydog, The Idea of a hobbie thread sounds good? You are in to RC Trucks
what other hobbies do you have? Me Well I'm not Keeping any bees this year, Too bad cause this year will be very good for blooms, I did that for three years. I still fly my airplane once in a while, The club that I belong to is putting up some new Awnings starting tomorrow 20 X 70 abouts that I will be Painting all the Posts and Purlins whatever color they choose! Last year we raised 12,000 dollars for runway widening and other improvements last year I just don ated some $$ for the project, This time i have to work. lol.

RCs, Custom Knifemaking, & repairing my F250, that is enough. I have an allergy to working so I have to limit things a little. Plus I'm waiting for the call from Bill Gates. I know he has a place for a computer wiz like me. I'd hate to be too busy and have to turn him down.

going to throw the street performance 350 back in it, my son turns 16 in 2 weeks and wants to drive it. the 500 hp 454 can get a little hard on drive train componets, tires, frames and the gas tank.

Travis,

You would have to do a special toot coming through Kingman. Most of those guys lay on it at my end of town. because of the 2 crossings 2nd street & 4th street. Give it a honk. When I lived in Carlin Nevada I knew an Engineer that ran from Winnemucca to Elko. Every so often I would hear a strange honk or an extra one & know it was him. I love the trains & most of the time don't even hear them. Around midnight or so I seem to always hear a couple. I was told that a guy that is from here is an Engineer & he signals his wife when he comes through. I was just told this so I have no idea if is true.
You guys still have snow in Flag?

Craig

Hey, Bill W what do you mean NO B/S, boy when did you get all straight forward? Ha, Ha. You know we could start calling it BW.

Hmm.......I guess we need a "code honk" haha. I know of 3 guys that live in Kingman that work for Railroad, all conductors. I'm sure there are a few Engineers also.....I just don't know them! Still a bit of snow in the shady spots, but it's pretty much gone!

Nice pictures, I like playing with a camera also. I have a Fuji FinePix 2600 Zoom, with 2.0 mega pixels. It wasn't that expensive, a few hundred dollars, but it takes good pictures as far as I'm concerned. Camera's are like any electronic device, When you buy the latest & greatest by the time you get home another product is out that is suppose to be even bigger & better. I have a close friend that is a professional photographer that has done work for Nevada Magazine & others, & he always told me the real difference come when you do your own developing.
