Yea Steve I'm getting the chassis sorted out now running it wide open. Going to do some small changes and have it ready for the new season.

I heard about the race over on UMTR, Would be nice but I dont think I'll make, to far for me this year. Its a UMTR/Pro Stick race so it ought to have a couple hundred stick cars there. Good race forsure.

Hows the project coming along?

Pulled the engine and trans out to get ready for the new car. Going a little slow, had some parts to delay things. Went up got get fitted for the seat and pedals. Should be ready for powder coating by first of year. This new car deal has just snow balled. David has yet to see what wen't wrong with his engine. Andy is doing few things to be even more faster! Hope you and family have a good Christmas Steve.

I forgot to ask you about David, I noticed he wasnt at the last few races. Did he get the motor out? It was a 347 right? ..........ron

best 1/8

I spoke with David last weak at work and he has not pulled it yet. He sold the 347 and bought Andys old 412. He thinks the pickup tube broke? Spoke with Rick and it looks like we have more races down your way. Steve

Well that will be good to have David back out there.

More races down my way sounds good, hopefully i'll make more of them this year.

Will you be ready the beginning of the season? I really want to see what the weight difference will make, that bird ought to fly.

Don't know, been waiting on frt struts for over 5 weaks. When they get in will finish out the frt end. Then it's off to powder coating. By then I'll be out of funds. Need to sell some stuff from old car. Will try to post up some pics later today. Got 2 races at union, one or two at some other track near union. I think one at pageland. Still early on for race schedule. Steve www.classicgearjammers.org
