I think that the note refers to the damage to grill from the return road incident. Just looks like a 2" hole through the fiberglas grill cover.  Charles probably has it fixed by now

Maybe the "damage" idea started when Charles posted that he had run xxx mph and left some on the track (meaning speed, not meaning parts).

looks like all he really left was some fiberglass on the return road ... Understand SSS ... he had more in the engine ... the bad push offs hurt him in a mile and a half ... I was supposed to push him off but I was distracted and didnt get the push plate done on my truck ...

There was some front grille damage from the return road crash.  My recovery truck driver was towing me back at the agreed upon 20mph. Another truck was coming down the return road honking and waving and spooked my guy, he thought he made a wrong turn and he slammed on the brakes. I only had a 20ft toe strap, needles to say the Stude ran into the 2" trailer ball and it went through the passenger side front grille. After I picked mysell out from under the dash of the car, I got out and surveyed the damage. Well, thank goodness it did not hit my hood with all the paint work... I taped up the hole with black duct tape, re striped it with red duct tape and all was fine,,, both  my driver and the other truck felt bad,,, it was just a racing incident and the fiberglass can be fixed.

The next 2 runs made the wreck seem like a minor deal....

If you look close both my race cars can be touched up with a black sharpie marker and a red one for the trim.

I think all of this through before we start the build. My tool box has black and red duct tape and sharpie markers.

I thought you were going to have tow bar mounts on the front of the car?? Much safer that way, everybody car ride in the tow truck in comfort.

GH,  I do have the tow bar mounts on the front of the Stude,  I did not have time to make the actual tow bar and quick connections for it.

That is on the list to get done before Maxton.
