After enduring another episode of "Let's Troll the IRRA®", Bob Munder coming into the shop, put a smile on my face.

Along with being a real likable guy, he brought the following;

He had this anglewinder chassis. While not a piece of art, I still enjoy these privateer builds.

I wound up putting on a pair of JK 7/8" dia. X 1/8" axle tires, to see how it would run.

It was wired backwards, so with the body needing repair, the lead wire looking marginal, at best, and guys warming up for Wednesday night racing, I stopped practice, to take a few quick laps, "bodyless."

It really scooted down the straight.

I was more impressed with this inline chassis, with its far rearward, Iso pivot, and sliding pans, held in place by the pin tubing.

What appeared to have been on the anglewinder, was this Dave Bloom Elfin, in the popular gold paint, with white stripe and black fogging, seen a few times in this DB THREAD.

Bob had a primo Hoffman box.

While saying he raced in Toledo, when I spotted this, it became apparent he moved at some point to this area, and ran at the iconic Hinsdale Raceway.

He volunteered he just ran there casually.

Neeto.

That's a pretty significant up/down stop on the Iso inliner.

:good:

Those are two fine-looking chassis Bob brought in to see. I like the simplicity of his Iso.

His Hoffman box appears to still be in great shape. Did he indicate if it came green from Hoffman or had it been refinished? A local body shop friend refinished one it orange with a similar-looking grain.

Bill,

 

That green finish is factory, I'm pretty sure. I have small Hoffman box with the same green finish.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap
