Found the harpoon, Bruce.  :D  Next step is wheel inserts, and some bodyproofing squares to ensure the precious inside decals do not get damaged in a crash. Here is what we have so far:

I would think Mr. McLaren would be flattered. Nice job, Pablo :good:

I picked a fine time to run out of Tom Andersen McLaren #1 wheel inserts :shok:

He is not responding to email for a couple of days. Can anybody help finding him?

My friend Dennis (www.samsonclassics.com) hooked me up with the 2 inserts I needed.

 

My Tony P. car is 100% done and ready for track testing this coming Saturday. :)

Thanks !  Track test complete.  She handles excellent like a full plumber should ! The motor is not a screaming wheelspin machine that needs glue to hook up; just quick acceleration and smooth power that compliments the car.

Greg Gilbert and I both drove her for about a dozen laps, no deslots, and checked the motor for temp -  cool as a cucumber. Not even warm.  That is on 12.0 Volts. 

 

Done. :)
