Yes, Mike runs the short chassis and he's our US GT National Champion in Spec & Open classes. Mike's a "Rocket Man".

Great paintjob on the Warrior, Mike. You should save that one for the October race.

Thanks Bill.

If these were not on the same date, I would have been down to run the Texas Biggie as well. Just let me know when the "One" part you did not have comes in.

DM1 is ready to roll, a few decals when I get there, but not bad for 3hrs last night.

Question for you guys running the Warrior, how much front to back rake as well as openings for motor temp. Currently I have it cut at the moulded in line and 3/4 of each side window and lower back. Need to cut for access to the fuel tank strap, but fuel from the side, so want to leave as much of the windshield in as possible.
