  Anthony ...does Doug Nash make a bigger input shaft than the stock chev.
 

Doug Nash is out of business. As I recall Richmond Gear now makes some of the old Doug Nash products.

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.

Anthony sent these along while I was downstairs in the tanning bed.  Here's the batch of photos:





























There you have 'em.  Anthony, did I get 'em all up there for you?  Thanks for them -- the fellows here seem to like your car, hey?

 Very nice rear engine roadster Anthony, I was wondering about the new 65% rule that states;
In addition to the general category requirements, cars in this class shall have a production or an exact replica of a roadster body as produced between 1923 and 1938. The combined body area covered or altered by the headrest fairing, all parachute fairings, and any other allowed body protuberances or displacements, from the original cockpit opening to the rear of the car cannot exceed 65%, as measured in a horizontal plane from the top view.
I'm not trying to stir anything up it's just an observation. I'm not sure I fully understand the rule.

Just a guess, but based on my observation of the pics, I'll wager that Anthony's pretty much right on the money as far as being in compliance with that new rule.   evil  grin    Funny how our design wasn't allowed to be run (for record qual. or record run) the past 2 years although this rule wasn't in the book then.  It covered approx. 95%. No biggie, we set a pretty stout record anyway ( #325 D/GRMR 243.618, exit 244.721.  You know, the one Tom G. and Pat K like so much  evil)   grin   Anthony, I really like your car and hope y'all kick a**.     vic

FYI, this car has already been thru tech. It will be used at the next inspectors meeting as well prior to any events in 2011. Anthony has worked very close with SCTA during the build.

I seen the chassis number sticker in one of the pictures. I'm glad it's OK, answers my worries.

Anthony, thanks for sharing, I do have a couple questions for you.

1. What steering box is that?
2. What are the tubing specs on the front axle and frame tubes?


Thanks, Trent
