Depending on work responsibilities, I'll be down for this. I was raised in Carbondale, IL (20 miles south of Duquoin)... Hope to see you all there.

PS David N. how/where can one source a TBU window sticker? Is there any hazing ritual involved... :p

The scott in is one of my accts if you bring somone signed on to base I can get you on and may be able to get you upgraded to a suite or something

Scott Long
02-10-2013, 01:41 PM
I will have base access for 2 more years so I can get on base. I might join the National Guard when I get out so either way I can get on base.

I might join the National Guard when I get out so either way I can get on base.I know you can I was saying if you needed somone signed on with you I can make a phone call to get you a pass. Scott is the toughest afb I have ever tried to get on, I have a base ID but there are more Generals on Scott afb than there are in the pentagon. Just trying to help where I can man.

Scott Long
02-10-2013, 03:47 PM
Scott is the Air Mobility Command headquarters base. Probably like my base Wright Patterson which is the Air Force Materiel Command HQ. We have a lot of brass. I think the procedures would be the same and I can vouch for my passenger or another vehicle and get them a pass at the gate if it's after hours otherwise we can go to pass and registration and sponsor them on.

How big is the hotel there?

How big is the hotel there?There are 36 generals on scott you might want to check on the security protocal but I think umless you are stationed there you can not sponsor people on base. The hotel is huge and it is on the right as soon as you come through the main gate. As I said before let me know if you make a reservation and I will see if I can get you upgraded as they have a tone of suites with the amount of High ranking officials on and off of the base. Alot of people dont know about the air mobility command but anything that moves anywhere in any branch of the military goes through safb they also house the airlift wing and soon they will have map geo which is going to double the size of the base and add security with the cia fbi and atf bieng aboard or so ive been told lol.

I've never been there myself but I know I should be fine to get on base. Even if they have DBIDS the worst that it will say is that I'm not in the database like what happened to me down at MacDill AFB in Tampa, but I still got on. I'm trying to see if my friend is going to come with or bring his SC so we might have to get him sponsored. His engine is torn down and he is waiting on his forged stroker crank and rods and pistons to arrive. We hope to have it done by June since I can help him out when I get back.

Yeah thats all i was talking about is if you where bringing somone with you to know that you are covered either way scott

Scott Long
02-11-2013, 08:46 AM
well we will see how motivated Tom is when his stroker parts arrive. I don't know what injectors he's going to run yet but he's gonna need a tune for sure. Maybe a mail order tune would get it driveable or we need to find someone near him that will be able to tune his car. He's pretty new to the SC game so I'm helping him by suggesting parts based on the direction he's heading. He wanted to do a forged stroker, MPX powered 5-speed.

I'll come down one way or another.

davec73
02-11-2013, 10:28 AM
Mine is still - the engine and it is an mpx powered 5 speed that is going to have to go to madison oh for tuning lol. I am going to get the motor in and schedule time with dave in conjunction with one of my chicago trips to get it tuned.

Scott Long
02-11-2013, 10:35 AM
My SC needs to go vist Dr. Dave this summer also. I have been out of the SC game for so long I'd like to get to a couple events before I send the car out but it will go out there before the shootout.

I am out of mistakes Scott, I dont know if you have looked at some of the nightmares I have gone through getting my car running but we will just say its alot and I am going to eliminate the possibility of as many of them as i can this time lol. When I get the motor back it will be started to check for leaks etc and loaded on atrailer to go up north so it can be properly tuned. That way I can have a tune in the qtr horse I run on the street and one that I can switch over to for the strip and actually drive and enjoy my car without having to worry all the time.:D

Scott Long
02-11-2013, 10:52 AM
didn't you grenade your engine right before the shootout? I think I read something about that.

davec73
02-11-2013, 11:15 AM
didn't you grenade your engine right before the shootout? I think I read something about that.
No I brought it to the shootout and It wasnt running and we thought I had bent valves so when I got it back home it started and the timing chain and gear let go and destroyed motor#1. Motor #2 I bought from casey and got it running and it spun a main bearing while I was working on getting it tuned. When we dis assembled the bottom end the #4 and #6 main caps where reversed and the #6 main bearing was fused to the top of the rod and the bottom bearing was welded to the main cap(what was left of it. The only reason all of this occured is the previous owner led me to believe it was a really low mile motor. My motor is upa at Daves getting an entire new forged bottom end with diamond pistons and it is bieng reassembled up at his place so I know the timing valve train etc is ready to go in the car and run.

Ideally, that would be the plan, but we haven't thought that far in advance. I know it will be difficult (maybe impossible) to hold some spots for people, but that is probably what will need to happen.

Glad to see a lot of folks coming to this. From my experience in the 90's, getting a spot with everyone together won't be a problem as the fairgrounds are pretty large. Getting a PRIME spot (by all the incoming traffic, or by lower rider guys with the kiddy pool and bikini chicks), is a completely different story.
