Thanks Mike---we are very pleased with how she and we did with the conditions  --Bill said she hunted and drifted around some but one would expect that with the round tires and ruts.---We are now ready to gussie her up some and start working on the power adders.

Sparky,
I know you were real busy at the salt and maybe didn't get to see all of the cars but the number 1429 rear engine modified roadster that "Krusty" crews on has the absolute neatest aero covering for the front axle. Regretfully I did not get a pic maybe Vic (Krusty) or some one that happen to take a pic of the front axle would add it here. Your car looks great and "ready"!

I got several shots of Vic's car but did not get a close-up of the front end.
Maybe these will help a little:







If he has this car at Wilmington next month, I'll be sure to get pics of the front.

Sparky,  PM me your email address and I'll send you these pics in "LARGE" format. You will be able to zoom in a see in better detail.

Looks to me that there's some sort of contrivance going on -- only slipperier.

I still can see the roadster (if you look hard) -- better than most of the RMRs.

Someone refresh my memory -- what's the difference between them and the lakesters?

Two records in the book speak for the effort on not the best track available.  More to come later, I'd bet.

Things have sure progressed over the last 10 years.  The overall quality of the cars is so superior.  Now they just need to get the Baja suspension to cap it off.

Francis and I studied the Contrivance frt. fairings closely---we are planning on a "wing root fairing" against the body,---we think we sorta know how it will be  we would like to do something similar to Contrivance out at the wheel side . 

We plan on 3 sections:  the body side being permanent the center being removable and the wheel side permanent -- we need a space for the tow bar and jack

We really do welcome ideas and suggestions as we move forward ---

Well it has taken a while to get back to normal after all the excitement of finally getting to run a fairly good car on a marginal track..

But while the body has been slow to come around from the sunburn and fatigue---my mind has been going crazy trying to decide what all to do to the car to "clean & speed it up"

Ohhh I forgot to mention the juggle with all of life's little challenges---not to mention the bank account
