Doesn't Stan's car hold the record for "tail lights leading" at El Mirage?

I think Stan figured out it was more aero going that direction....
but I heard they DQ'd him because there is not a rear engine street roadster class  :cheers:

   What's the best ignition for this glass? Is a mag or can you run a MSD box as long as no computer. No HEI's right?
