This is my last build, a z rail sidewinder with a bronze center rail. This was inspired with conversations with Mike Swiss. It won one race this season in the Midwest Series and a top two car in my box.

Very nice work! I like the metal in-lay at the front end.

I did the tungsten in lay with a 1/16 end mill. The .032 brass piece was temporarily glued to a plate for the milling.
