Gifford,  Hopefully the Body can compliment the chassis. We will take our time and double and triple check everything before the car is ever loaded on the trailer to hit the track for shakedown runs.

More pics as progress continues.

e

Joe,

The plan is debut at Maxton in June... a lot of work yet to do, but I sure hope so.. love to have tech done and get a shakedown run and a parchute run in as well,,,

I also have my hotel reserved in Maine,, so in case not ready June,,, will have to work the bugs out at LTA..

My hope is there are no bugs to work out. (the Vicky came off the trailer, passed tech the first time, made a shakedown run then on second pass set the record). So I have just as high expectations for the Stude.

See you in June and July ?

I will be down in June and can help if there are any "Bugs"   which I doubt ... based on the workmanship I saw on the Vickie ....  Joe

I think he said he'll be on the boat through the last part of this coming week.  We've got days left to tease at him. . .
