Got more than 1 racecar? How to get back to 1
« on: May 04, 2013, 06:34:02 PM »
I started building my FED years ago. Went through 2 shops and multi years of sitting in the corner waiting to be finished. Found a RED reasonable and bought it to have something to go play with. Got another chassis and a footbrake camaro. Putting the engine from the camaro into the 2nd RED chassis. Now too many projects.

Crash one of them, but don't get hurt. And don't lose the fever for the one remaining.
Just keep the same amount of stuff on the right
as there is on the left. Seeing straight ahead is highly overrated....

Had same problem a couple years ago. I have a FED that I cannibalized so I could run a RED that I decided was boring. A Monte Carlo that gave me claustrophobia after racing an open cockpit car. Bit the bullet and sold everything but FED. Made OK deals just decided I wanted them gone. Also bought and sold an Altered and another RED before all was said and done. I put mine on Race Junk and Craigslist priced them right and they are gone. Haven't raced in two years but its looking good for next year.
