Mike,

After looking at the Ida car, I don't think you or I would fit in it, let alone a big Hemi V8. LOL.  I guess that is why we have Roadsters. LOL.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

  I think the dragster style lakester has limited application but the tried and true belly tanker is going to have a revival when the one Chaz is doing hits the salt!!!!

Your trip to the wind tunnel should be very interesting! Please keep us up to date on that visit.

  Beautiful car and I see some sort of suspension which will help with traction but it would never hook up with the engine out of the 44 lakester [unless they added a wing] tongue

To Tom G.,
It appears that it is the rear that I sold Bob, a Winters Extremeliner 3:08 R&P that was REM'ed. It has a 35 spline steel spool.
The body sure is lookin' good, you guys should see better speeds out of the car with it.
