    Stephinie Lazano

    I met her while I worked for MDR. So rare to meet a female racer in those days. and she was definitely memorable; every bit as tough as the guys. Vaya con Dios Stephanie.

    6122 SS300 Race and Fire Recap

    I also found out the hard way that when an incident like that occurs and you shut off power your breath inside the helmet can fog it up in about 2 seconds.

    BLM in charge of US helium supplies

    A welding blog mentioned that the Bureau of land mismanagement is now in charge of all future US helium production. (What could possibly go wrong?) Does anyone use helium on their aluminum Fab work? Expect a price hike soon.

    '80-96 full-size Ford Bronco in Rock Racing (Ultra4, etc.)?

    My '96 5.8 Bronco has (had) a whopping 197hp and weighs over two tons empty. The '49 Willy's is smog exempt and you can run that thing on coal if you want to, plus registration is cheap.

    SCORE Fined. Baja 1000 Put on hold till payment is complete.

    I'm curious what the fine is for all the raw sewage that is continuously dumped into the ocean. And the trash swept into the ocean from the storm drains. And the millions of tires left to rot in the sun?

    Derale atomic cooler

    Looking at the Derale website can't help but notice that they don't include basic information about mounting the coolers. The PS cooler I ordered apparently comes with some plastic zip tie-size pieces used to hang the cooler from the condenser..... That's just not gonna be good enough. No actual...

    How much fun was it replacing the stock body pucks with the solid aluminum ones? Can one person do it alone?
