Sparky - I think we both got Goosed by the wind this weekend. I feel really sorry for all the guys that didn't get a run in this weekend, mother nature had it out for us. However, it was really good to visit with you, and so says the misses. I'll be over to Phoenix in a couple of weeks.

We found out a quirk of my car with the canopy window----when there is a wind-- quartering to straight from behind --the dust stirred up by the push truck sticks to the front of the "visibility window"  within 15 yards of pushing down the track  ( I was just going to push down the track to get a visibility feel---BAM--there was a complete brown out.
 
 NO wonder Andy had visibility issues---we had the same wind direction at the Nov '13 meet 

this canopy will be for B'ville only!!

Don't forget a breathing mask or bandana tied across your mouth and nose when you go down the EM track.  What good is it to see if you're going faint from holding your breath?

We will get real busy finishing our wider track axle and building a rear fairing for it---time to get out the aero book and check up on shark teeth

Count down to B'ville

1. Pull the eng. to stop a small oil leak on the pan, and hook up the pan vacuum gauge.
2.  try to fit a dust cover over the flywheel--PG didn't have big             tooth count ones
3 mount the wider track 2.14 geared axle- we will be running with our MT 16s   We are working toward a 270+ 1/4 speed  The old car had a 269+ 
4  move brake pedal forward to lower my left leg in the cockpit to be able to restrain it closer to the floor.

Rex now that you mention the B17 tailgunner, it does kinda look that way a bit.
