Yes, it looks good! Have you had the opportunity to track-test it yet? :)

Track test results, I give it three thumbs up :good: :good: :good:

-Great handler, very stable, no bad habits, everything worked fine

-Gobs of horsepower but it's easy to manage. I used my regular controller, no choke was needed. Motor runs cool as a cucumber at 12 volts.

I'm sure it would be ballistic at 14 volts and still run pretty cool :good:

-Despite 8/42 gearing, it still needs shorter gears. In glue, it might be fine. But the test was in spray glue.

If the car sees a track after it leaves my hands, it will probably be run with spray glue. So, I'm changing the 8 pinion to a 7.

-I smacked the Dead Man (due to lack of brakes) and both forward body mount holes on one side tore through.

So I added bulletproofing over the double holes on both sides.

Successfully swapped pinions without the introduction of acid by pre-soldering the new pinion onto a dummy shaft using acid

Removed and cleaned it, reinstalled with paste flux. Worked fine

I was able to make the gearing change happen with very slight axle spacer changes :good:

Pinned the body back on and I'm confident enough to say, this car is done. Yes, I'm very happy with it :yes3:

Thank You, Joel Montague :friends:

Joel deserves a huge thank you from all of us for winning this race in a convincing manner otherwise we'd be hearing "Ah Am The Greatis" constantly since 1973. In fact I think this hobby owes Pooch & Camen for being the longest running class act under the direction of Joel Montague, if we had a solid racing organization I'm certain he would receive a lifetime achievement award including a Nobel prize. But then that is my opinion and there are those who disrespect my opinions when it comes to guys that won big races getting credit for their accomplishments. Joel on the other hand is the consummate professional that cannot be argued by delusional would be racers.
