He may not be designing the JK stamped chassis anymore, but after a dominating 8 lap, B Production win, against a tough field, at today's Midwest Flat Track Series, Chuck Gambo showed me a cool trick that he did with his C43.
 
The net result was a car with a sprung pan.
 
When you push the pan forward, the lead wire springs the pan back, with authority.
 
Possibly it's been done before, but neither one us remember seeing it.

Leave it to Chuck to come up with simple things to gain an upper hand.

All part of the game. Using a ready-made chassis takes the advantage away form the builder. So you have to be good.
