No problem, Tim.

It happens because you're holding your phone wrong for taking pics.

If you're using an iPhone, hold the phone with the long axis horizontal, so that you push the button with your left hand.

Test this and see if I am right.

I built one of these not long ago also- but it was to our local rules.

MG,

What are your local rules this car was built to? The local home/club group runs a similar hardbody class, but uses H&R, FCR, and brass Pro-Track chassis.

The series information can be found HERE.

We found that H&R and Pro-Track chassis are neither competitive or sturdy enough for the tracks we run on.

Thanks for the info. I am somewhat famliar with Brian's chassis. Since the local track is a Tunkel four-lane mini-orange, the chassis I mentioned above works OK for us.

Unfortunately, there hasn't been any NH commercial raceways since 2010.

I guess great minds think alike. This car is over 10 years old and "used" lightly.

Nice cars.   

We run H&R, Protrack and cut-up Womp chassis and have a lot of fun. We keep motors reasonable, so they match the chassis capability pretty good. We run on a King and at our speeds these all run fine. Not a tight, flat home course.

Nice looking builds guys.
A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

I got a chance to try out the new build!! It's really nice and smooth--ran 5.7's on Blue lane so it should be down around 5.3's on Black!! Really FUN class of cars!!

Found this one for sale and had to have it. Builder did great job on body and put on a H&R Chassis.
He built lowered side floating pans that body mounts too which Ready helps in making it handle much better.
