Tsalt,  I like it... thanks....  I know everyone thinks I am crazy powering a heavy full bodied car with a little 255 cu in  N/A motor on gas,,,, but it sure is fun.....

and she runs respectable for her small cu. in.

The    Lil b"E"ast ... I like it... :cheers:

Loading up today to depart in the morning for Maxton's last event of the 2010 season.

Took a few short videos to see if the Go Pro Hero was still working after I dropped it.

Walking from Hot Rod Shop to Race Shop


Panning around the Shop (pardon the mess)

See you all this weekend at Maxton,

TSalt, I am not a dancer,,, just testing the camera's view.  Looks like it is still working..

All through tech and ready for the 8:30am  drivers meeting,,, temps are cooler than we thought.. Hope we can make some power.

I decided to run up in motor class... So in the morning I am running D/CGALT... then if all goes well may try C/CGALT  in the afternoon is no wind.  The E motor may not be able to get a C record if there is much head wind.

CHARLES, take a lesson from Stan Back.

He likes to set records into a head wind.

You are capable, if'n he is.

HAMMER DOWN. You have all winter to rebuild.

Charles,

I just reviewed your build thread, for the ???? time (I can't remember how many times I've looked at it).  What I was looking for were pictures of the chassis build, I thought you had posted some, but I suppose it could have been someone else' thread.  I also scanned your Photobucket page.  Do you have any to share?  I also have some other questions, but I'll contact you offline with them in a few days.

Giff,

The Chassis build pics should be both on my build diary here and photobucket.  You just have to go back a bit further.

Talk soon,

Giff,  go back to page 5 of this build thread and you can see the chassis build for 10 pages or more.

Charles,

I saw all of those pictures.  It must have been somebody else' build thread, as I remember seeing the process from receiving a bare set of rails, building a temporary chassis jig, and the welding of the complete chassis.

Giff,  I did not buy chassis rails.  Had FatMan make front stub and we built the entire chassis in house from scratch.

my photobucket may have a few more pictures, you may be thinking of John from Marylands Stude build ??  He had some good pictures as well.

Giff.

Hello.

If you are building a Studebaker and have build questions, feel free to ask.  Like Charles, my car has gone through a few lesson-learned hoops.
