Well he asked and I agreed to build it so all you have to do is ask. We ran VMR rear 33 with VMR front 50. I think we could have gone with rear 35 but I played it safe as it was his first time with the car. The tires are still good, still useable. Engine is the same nova 3 port and pipe as before. He hit a dot at just the right angle and sliced a portion of bumper off. Yes I think I built it right, we never took a wrench to it or had anything fall off. His only complaint was there should be more of these to race against.

Wrenching was limited to rotating tires, leaning the motor, replacing a bumper, and changing to a smaller spur gear. Oh, walking the car to the air compressor.

I think we might finally have enough interest here in LA to have a class next year. Rumor has it the nats might happen here, maybe a pan class will happen....
It's going to be a long midwest winter...

Haha, the last quake that mattered was 18 years ago. A little trembler here and there breaks the monotony.

4 weeks! that's hardly enough time to mount your snow tires. No wonder those West Coast folks act so soiled, they are!

Lon, I shipped your stuff 3 days ago. I can send the 2 parts today if you want. I am still waiting to hear back from a few other guys on their orders, so if anyone lives close to you I can put your parts in their box. It shouldn't cost more than a dollar or so to ship these anyway.

Yup. I figure you'll get to it after you install the snow tires.
