hear yee!, hear yee!, hear yee!----ALL HAIL SIR FRANCIS  !!!!!!!!!

  Ms LIBERTY's new canopy he built,  WORKED--no visibility issues at all---no clinging dust

Marty got in his first two runs at his 2 DAY ROOKIE meet now has his C Lisc with no car issues

the new El Mirage chute that Stroud build for Ms Liberty worked flawlessly  we ran on some M/T 15" with the new 2.73 rear end  Marty said the car pulled hard--looking forward to seeing what that can do for us

The track was great first ten cars went to impound on Saturday! 

It sure is great to see and visit old friend and acquaintances    almost makes one wish you didn't have to mess with a car

Looks like we better be building us a wing so we can run harder at EL M

Sparky,
Since you are a "wheels away from the body" guy (which I also think is the best plan for a lakester) maybe you should do something like Rob and Brandon did on their streamliner as you are intending to cover the rear axle to streamline it why not make the axle covers a good aerofoil shape and be able to give it some angle of attack or better yet put a small flap on the rear to set the down force.

Great to hear you ran well.

If you steamline the axle, you are a "streamliner".

Slightly off-topic question: If round is one of the least aerodynamic shapes, is their some OE axle cross-section that is any better?

We have narrowed the rear axle for lisc. and early turbo experience--to make it easier to drive  and we loved how it came off the truck with the 2.73 gears and the 23.5 tires

  on  a lakester --we can streamline anything inside of the narrowest tire inner plane

Sid & Stan I am with you on the drag---if we had a track every time as good as last weekend but we most likely will not
