    I'm glad you're back! You'll surely be here in the spring for The Moonshine 400! ( It's the craziest road race in Hazzard! They only go 400 laps, not 500, because nobody can stay sober long enough to finish! ( What do you expect Hobie the town drunk + a race called the MOONSHINE 400? You know they're asking for it! LOL! )

  6. Doh! I wonder what happened to you. LOL. I didn't realize how bad or complicated this login thing was. I made the switch over to https YEARS ago, so I'm baffled as to why the login issues just started in the past year. So weird. Glad it's all sorted now though. Welcome back!

    But I thought you were a big racing fan. You are right though, it's not that fun. Unless you are only a spectator....then it's a blast.

    It is definitely more fun than the Buttermilk 4.00 where you have to chug a quart of buttermilk and run around the barn 4 times without barfing. Nobody has made it all 4 laps yet but whoever gets the farthest wins. Hobie won it last year with a personal best of 2.75 laps.

  18. I recently bought BeamNG.drive and have been playing around with it. I found out they have a General Lee mod. There's no Charger in the game, so it's basically just General Lee livery on a somewhat similar car body. Crashing is extremely fun in the game because of physics. So, I figured maybe Rosco would take the General Lee out for a little run. I recorded it and made a short video of it. Added a few sound clips from the show at the end too. I hope you enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsLKta98Svo

  21. Thank you Meadomufn. It was kinda frustrating...I tried signing up as a new member and even that didn't work out. I was excited when I saw this thread this afternoon and went and checked it out and it worked! It's worth the wait. I am glad you got it figured out...thank you for not giving up! Thanks again.

    I don't have any NASCAR news...y'all seem to have it covered. I was going to stop by with some, but have been having a hard time logging back in until now. I guess that's what I get for being gone for so long. If life wasn't so busy and I didn't have to work and everything else...I'd have time for Dukes and the computer. Just thought I'd send out a hello to everyone. I'm still here. Just busy. Especially now that I am going back to school and taking online college classes for work...and before then I didn't have a computer so that made coming on here difficult as well. So...howdy y'all. There is just 90 days, 5 hours, and 25 minutes until the Daytona 500. Not that I am counting or anything...GO CHASE ELLIOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Any goals in 2022?

    Well, it turned out to be a 0-0 draw. England now have to play their neighbors, Wales, while the USA play Iran.

    Any goals in 2022?

    Talking of 'Any goals in 2022?', the USA play England in the World Cup tomorrow night. It's now 56 years since England won the World Cup (we may mention it occasionally ), but we never stop believing!

  29. You can take all of that money out of Boss's bank and use it to make the Moonshine 400 a national event. I bet you'll be profitable after the first race.

  32. Lately free time has been at a massive premium, especially since deer season started, so progress has been minimal. I haven't had time to work on the 3d printed police car at all, but I have made some minor progress on the RJ Speed General Lee, specifically the body mounts on the WL Toys chassis. Here's a shot of the chassis with all of the electronics reinstalled and the front & rear body mounts fabricated: Here's an up-close of the front & rear mounts, both of which were made the same way: The mounts are both made from 1/16" Kydex sheets. In the past I've always worked with 1/8" Kydex, which is extremely durable and rigid, but heavy. Because this car already weighs more than a real Dodge Charger because of the massive aluminum chassis, I really need to cut weight wherever I can or that 390 sized motor won't stand a chance of surviving for long. The problem with such thin material is that it's not very rigid, so I had to do more than just a right angle bend like I would have done with the thicker stuff. To make these stronger, I had to cut the "wings" on the sides and bend them over and tie them together with screws. Hopefully that's more clear in the underside pics: Here is the body set onto the chassis with the new mounts: One of the issues that I've run into is that the body doesn't sit as low as I had hoped, so I need to rethink my attachment ideas. Originally I was just going to go with the standard body post method, since that's the easiest, and it would make it more like the Kyosho "hero" car that this will be standing in for during jump scenes. I could bend the kydex down more and still fit the body posts, but the body sits right where it should as-is, so I think that instead of fooling with the body posts, I'm going to just go with velcro mounts and call it a day. From the beginning, the plan has been to add a lip to the bottom of the chassis to attach the bottom of the body to the chassis with velcro anyway, so what's a little more on the top? Here's a close up of the mounts through the body: The next step is to trim back the mounts, as I don't need them to extend as far from the shock towers. After that, I need to locate and cut out the wheel well openings, and then the 3d design & print work starts for the body. I'm trying to accomplish as much of the "in the garage" work as I can before it gets stupid cold, because I'd rather sit inside in front of the computer during that period. This means that I also need to make some real progress on the police body soon, or I'm going to have to spend a fortune on propane to heat the garage every time I go out there to work on it.

  33. So cool. Thanks for sharing it. I wasn't bothered by the inaccuracies in the General Lee but I am bothered that no creeks were jumped...LOL

  38. The games of Dukes of Hazzard aren't very good, except for the Xbox/PS2 one. Burnout Paradise featured a car that sort of looked like the General Lee, the game has lots of fun jumps/stunts, but it's not a DoH game if that's what you wanted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw5GI2ReKk8

    Did You Know ??

    It happens in some movies. If you look at the cast and crew of 'The Godfather', over half of the actors (mostly the ones without named parts) are uncredited. Paul Baxley was also uncredited as second unit director on 'The Godfather'. As you go down the crew list, most of the second unit, the art department, the sound department, the stunts, the camera and electrical department, the editorial department, the musical department, etc., etc. all go uncredited.

    Did You Know ??

    I've never looked into it before, so it's news to me. According to his IMDb page, his role as stunt coordinator on 'The Godfather' was uncredited. He was also stunt coordinator on other movies I like such as 'It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World', 'Coogan's Bluff' and 'Diamonds Are Forever'. I guess I can dig it, man!

  45. I punched my information in again because I wanted a second opinion after they told me I wrote like Larry the Cable Guy. This time I answered most of the questions truthfully and it came back that I write like Garrett Duke. Now I ask you good folks of the HazzardNet.....Is my writing really that bad?

Nothing could go wrong here......If ya believe that.... well....then you've never been to Hazzard. Here comes the Duke boys, and from the looks of the way they're drivin' , it could only mean ooonne thing.........Yep! that's what I figured, Rosco's hot on their tales. "Come on Bo, are ya gonna let him catch us? Or are you gonna move this thing?" "I'll lose him cuz, ain't no way he can catch us in the General. You know that!" "I can't tell by the way your drivin'. " "Oh, and I suppose you think you could do better?" "At the moment, Maudine the mule could do better!" "Oh, real funny, Luke."

    The last 24 hours

    I stuffed myself the past few days lol. Work had a potluck on Wednesday and then had two thanksgiving dinners yesterday. Definitely feeling it today, probably skip breakfast this morning. I'll definitely never forget this Thanksgiving. I'm 43 years old and people trying to dictate how I'm going to live my life like I have no choice. We're still in shock after being blindsided yesterday. We never agreed to it or even had any input yet apparently the decision has been made and my family thinks it's a done deal . I don't know how the heck the discussion from last week that my dad's house needs renovated to bring it up to live-able code automatically turned into we're moving in and and taking care of him. I and my wife never agreed to that. In my opinion the house should be sold as is and my dad should move into an apartment or senior assisted apartment. It's probably going to cost $20-30,000 just to bring it up to current home code regulations and fix the things that he let go when he was in good health.
