Woody and I had a great visit this morning via phone---we agreed that there should not be any more needed changes to the major frame members.  The bay between the rear axle and the eng will not have any diagonals for a while as we are still exploring the exhaust placement. We are taking a Christmas break but we should have the frame off the jig by mid Jan and rolling around on the floor doing the final welding.

Then on to the most  "exciting"  rolleyes part of LSR, bracket racing  cry  making bracket after bracket to mount everthing  but that is one of the joys of Special Construction "packaging".

Sparky, do you plan on having it on the salt in 2012?

That is our goal---we have one advantage---we are not having to "bingeineer" as much this time---and that is a good thing  we are all OVERWEIGHT and will need to slim down---thank goodness not to SSS profile!  cheers

Yeah, yeah -- but just think how lousy it'd sound if I gained a bunch of weight.  They'd have to call me "Seldom Seen Lard-butt". shocked

38 flattie,

I'm a BIG fan of yours, especially after you whipped all the Road Runners @ the GoKart track, BUT . . .
dontcha know it's bad racing etiquette to ask a racer when it's gonna be done?

It took about five years and me spending some money with the late, great Jocko Johnson when I asked that when he was building the Allison streamliner before he'd speak to me.

Big Bucks, by the way - $250.00 for a porting job on my (later) Drag News 1320 record holding Dodge CF/MR heads. (I borrowed the money from my grandmother -true story).

Ooops!

No, Interested Bystander, I did not know it was bad racing etiquette!

Can I blame my trespass on being a noob- us roundy-rounders don't have have that etiquette rule!

Interested Bystander,

     A story went around back in the day that when Jocko was building the liner he got sick of people asking when so he put up a sign, "if you can't wait - donate".  Any truth to it?

In Texas for Christmas with Grands and kids---

how inspiring Rich Fox and Blake S. are

can't wait to get back to AZ  buy some more of the new fangled beer cans SS#1 made reference to and get back to work.  I should have at least 20 hours per week for the TTS project we are almost finished with Andy's Manx buggy and then we are on to faster things!!
