    David Binns SCORE 7 open

    Does anyone have any contact information for David Binns. He runs a yellow 7 open. He let us borrow an axle at the 500 and we don't have any way to get a hold of him. We tried calling SCORE but Sue won't give us the number for some reason. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Bronze Bushings

    Which bronze is best to use for steering and lower link pivits? Is it worth it to spend the extra money on the SAE 841 oil impregnated bronze or is SAE 660 bronze ok? I can imagine that the 841 would be better as far as being self lubricating and having anti corrosion properties. For...

    Does anyone have any idea what the new course will be? They could do the same course as last year, but turn right at the high school onto Needles and make another right back onto the course where the 2nd road crossing was. That would cut out the part of land that was sold. I just don't...
