The tongue wasn't bent bad at all, just off by a hair, and it wasn't the tongue that was bent, just the chassis.  The photo makes it look a lot worse than it was.

 

40 thou ?  Are you kidding ?  I need to go to Lowes to get a gross of washers :shok: :laugh2:

Speaking to Bill Pinch today there are two top local guys are in line to build and waiting for the 2 kits coming from Mike Swiss. 

 

We hope to see Matt Bowman and Dennis Demole get their kits soon so they can start building.

Bardahl Special looks to be in great shape, Jaaaaaak :)

I see what you did with those lead wires to give the flag some return action and provide enough slack - never seen it done like that - I like it. :good:

What, no air vent for the motor up top ? :shok:  Hope the tape that holds the body doesn't get hot and melt to the driver's derriere :dash2:

If you want help with new rubber, send me a PM ASAP, I can make it happen no problemo but we would need to act soon.

#12 Dean Van Lines is 100% ready and will be mailed tomorrow.

Not sure if my set up for a short flat tri-oval is good, or a mile off. She'll be either really really good:

or really really bad :)

The lead wire setup like this I have to thank Ray aka Manta Ray for.
He kindly offered to fix some of the issues I and others had seen and was willing to make the fixes for me instead of having it have to ship to Europe and back before the next race was done.
Ray did a fabulous job and I am very greatful for that :victory:

I first saw this leadwire arrangement used on retro cars at BPR. I think it was Mill Conroy's idea. :)

I brought the #9 car out for 'show and tell' at Ken's Brandywine Speedway and two more guys are interested in kits.

 

 

Mike,

Please touch base with Bill Pinch on the total count and add one extra body, driver and trim for me in that shipment.

 

 

Thank You!

 

 

Pablo's car is in route to Bill :good:

NOTE: There is a testing ban in place.

 

Same as the Rods and Rails events.

 

These cars are not allowed on Bill's oval until the day of the race.

 

Bill is informed.

 

 

Out of town/country guys ... don't think anyone is testing or tuning here to gain an advantage.

You will have just as fair of a shot at the win..

With the additional kits arriving it looks like we might reach a total of a 14 car field for the event.
