Gentlemen,
Start your engines.

And to quote the good author of the below posted link:
"..."Your only young once, but you can be immature forever"..."
Gotta love this guy.!!!

http://www.kenlowe.com.au/barstool.htm
i found this guy's page doing some research on barstools for racing.

What we see here below is a picture of an open ToyHauler with a Bar-Stool racer inside.


Plus we have some instructions for creating a barstool racer.
Plus links to DragRacingSchools and supercharger hardware links.
Plus BAR-STOOL stories. And pictures of bar-stools.
Those guys know bar-stools.
You guys know bar-stools.
WE know bar-stools.
Bar-stools with engines that you can drive right from the ToyHauler to the bar, or anywhere I guess for that matter, right to the Track.!.

O.K., so the SoCal Icefishers is off to perhaps a slow start, due in part to this seasons lack of snow once again here in the desert. Who could have predicted that?

But while we wait, how about instead the All States ToyHauler BarStool League', with 'Racin' Tom' officiating?



Anyone here who doesn't have a lot of previous bar-stool experience, no worries, we have a trainer here at iRV2 as well. Maybe, just maybe, one of the guys here, he knows of whom I refer I am sure, could pony up and volunteer to help train unexperienced barstoolers. For a small fee or tip of the glass maybe ??

i think you can all see that icechest in the back of the ToyHauler, and you know what thats there for. And it aint to haul back the Ice-fish either.

Season opening date? 'Racin Tom', as officiator, where do we go from here??

i had to think long and hard about this BarStool racing.
When i first mulled it over a while back I thought it looked :
mechanical, infantile, dangerous, it helps to have some exposure to racing bikes or quads, is incredibly multi useful, pretty much helps to have a ToyHauler. Right up our alley. But then i had to stop and think, who here has ever really sat on a BarStool before?
It is a marriage made in heaven.

I have actually seen barstool racing on TV somewhere. The requirement was to drink a bunch of beer first, then climb on and see who could get around the small oval track they had setup first without falling off. Even had haybales around the outside of the track. What a riot!

I tried to make the stupid picture bigger but it just didn't work out, (I gave up) so if you want to see a larger version go to the photo page.

It looks like we'll have 'The ToyHaulers For Jesus and Noah Club' ??????
Can you race an ark?

Tom, is that you or Sean at the wheel?? Who does it look more like?

And High desert, that whole weight issue is really starting to look like the manufacturers have been in a big rush to accessorize, and they (and their buyers) are starting to realize the other half of that. That is a drag.

And as far as posting the pic, you were 95% of the way there.
When you were in the Photos area, you needed to click on the thumbnail of your photo to enlarge it FIRST before right clicking on its Properties. I believe you posted the properties of the thumbnail Noah, not the enlarged Noah.

Great picture though.
