Hi John

I am the guy from Severna Park.  We talked on the phone in August and I couldn't get over there to see the drag car.  I can't believe we didn't meet in Maxton.  We might have seen each other.  I was on the start line crew strapping people in to race cars.  Tall, kind of goofy looking, in shorts most of the day.  I really would like to meet up (before April) and check out your cars.  I am working out of town the next two weeks.  I will PM and hopefully we will catch up. 
BTW did you go to the Jalopy show at the armory yesterday?

The Stude looks fantastic

Steve.

Greetings and hello.

I was in a push car and saw you on the starting line buckling-up the drivers.  Give me a call upon your return from travel.  We have quite a bit of activity in the immediate area working on five LSR vehicles.

I did not go to the armory.

John,  man I sure wish our places where closer to each other,,,, NICE Job,,, we could learn and help each other...

We each have a few neat and unique things that keep our cars from looking the same or like cookie cutter templates.

Man keep up the good work,,, we both need to pit and stage together for our inaugural runs in April at Maxton...

keep thrashing my friend,,, as we are !!!!

Charles.

We are working away toward Maxton in April but there is obviously a lot yet to do.  The passenger bars are made but not installed to ease floor installation.

Your car is coming along great!

The passenger seat will be removable as an option for driving on the road.

The car came with a 283 that would make a great little street engine.

Charles.

The way you are designing and building your car, it should be very competitive.

By the way, your new tow vehicle is a four star; love to have one!

I have to measure the plates, not sure of thickness.

We, that is Steve, has a lot of welding to finish underneath the chassis; we are cleaning up the bottom side; I will provide photos as we go. 

April at Maxton is going to be difficult but I'm giving it a try; hoping to go to Loring as well.

We made good progress today on my Stude...John you can make April,,, it would be a moral victory to make it to Maxton and pass tech and make a few shakedown runs,,,, That is "BOTH" our goals,,, get to work we can do it.

Take care and keep at it....

John -

I am planning my Stude and I understand you had some problems with the Slick Street  conversion. What changes did you have to do?
