Today I was ready to walk away for the thousandth time. :-D
This is for men only and I feel like a mouse lately.
BTW, the guy who said he had that 2.14 ratio set for me is unreachable.
Hope he's OK.

John came over today and we put the race tires on, put it on the floor and started the evaluation process.

We have fairly good visibility over the nose. He could see my sneakers at about 80' but we are restrained by the 10 deg. slope of the windscreens distortion and the upper fiberglass that we were trying to shield the panel from sun light .

There is hope--- it was less than 80 F  at 7:00 Am---  it actually felt chilly when I put up the flag this AM!  :-D  So much for global warming!

Francis came up and Doug Robinson came down and we had a "visibility session".  It will soon be
 whack-a-doddle time once again as Ms. Liberty will receives  plastic surgery from Sir Francis..

I am going to cut 2" out the tank top so that the front part of the canopy can be lowered two inches.
This will leave a flat area on top of the tank but we will be able to see forward much easier. 

We are still looking at various other canopy windscreen changes---

Sparky, can you cut a long, skinny wedge lengthwise out of the upper front and weld it up again. That would lower the body surface and at the same time retain the curve. I think the aero would be much happier!  :-D :-D :-D

PJ you are correct but we want to make this a removable panel and the frame under there will not allow us to tighten the circle that much.

Is that 2 car years or 2 dog years or even 2 cat years?  Maybe the nose is really, like, 18 years old and so the cosmetic surgery isn't quite so rash and early.  Yeah, that's it -- think of her in dog years.
