    Must have been a carry over from the days of big Westcotts, guess we'll have to up the boost a bit to compensate  grin

Ronnie
        How is the roadster coming?
Been working on her every day since the last runs in September closing in on it making the changes in a way to not disturb going back to a lakester in the future. If all goes as planed should be at Steves Land Speed Night next month for the first public viewing. Westcotts have come in handy during the modifications used a number of sizes all left over from the railroad days.    cheers

For you guys in the south and southern California that's a snow blower behind the engine. Slim probably thinks it a 1/4
scale model of a REAL blower.

We've got three snow blowers, thank you very much.  One is kinda like what is shown in the photo, one is small -- a two-stroke single stage unit I use for clearing the sidewalk from house to garage.  And then there's the big one - not quite four times as big as what's shown, but it is a 72" wide cut.  I'll try to remember to take a photo of it when I get home and show you what a Yooper uses to move snow.

Now back to our regularly scheduled lakester discussion. grin

 Putting such a long car in a short garage is going to cause a problem when its time to roll her out for the first time. Your going to need a door in the side of the garage of some big sledge hammers to open up the wall!   cheers

Corner to corner with rollie wheels, thats the way to do it. I have a 40ft car in a 30ft shed, just not with both ends on at the same time. grin As you can probably tell, I'm not very good with math. huh
I like your little turbo Ford there, your car should be a lot of fun.

They're no slug in stock form so it sould be point & shoot fun. You might want to delete the EGR.
