I predict a massive swarm of Javelins at the nationals.

I hope Dale is prepared for the demand!!!

shame there weren't that many javelin running in the original series..can you say a entire A-Main of red/white/blue #6 javelins

the leader is the red/white/blue #6 - the closest battle on the track is for 3rd between the red/white/blue javelin of this dude and that dude

I can hear it now - a nightmare for the race announcer

Did a quick search and found a Yellow Javelin with black stripes that raced in Trans Am. Here is a link http://www.a2zracer.com/page45.html

I think that is a beautiful representation of the Javelin. The cut for the rear window and the muscularity of the fenders is all well represented. There are no more "Design Liberties" present in that shell than are necessary to make any given shape fit on a Touring car Chassis.

Dale I assume that you sculpted this one as well. Thank you again for your efforts. Missed seeing you at the Snowbirds this year. I looked around for you.

I'm running a 50 pinion and 80 spur with the 25.5 Ballistic. Seems just right with an FDR of 4.0.
