Wow, good job getting everything together and making it happen. What you accomplished is no small feat. Undoubtedly a lot of blood, sweat, and tears making the mechanical side come to life and trying to excite sponsors (truly the harder task in my opinion...). A lot of fun though, I know I miss the track and tinkering in the shop.

Did you make it to the dyno?

Have fun and remember: Shiny side up, rubber side down... Just kidding (sort of - used to be our standard joke before each race).

I'm not sure if Bob will get a chance to post here for a bit...
He is going on vacation beginning Monday. He'll try to get online to post.

Wow. The MINI graphics have stepped up a notch since the last time I saw it.

Hollis: nice work on the b/w conversion and selective use of color. I haven't seen that done before with Dark Silver, but it worked out really nicely.

yeah what they said: wow.

great photos of an awesome looking car.

forgive me if I overlooked this but what are the specs on this car; I read about the suspension mods, brakes, cage, etc but how about the engine, etc... what class does this car race in?

looks like an awesome project :biggthump

Is that California Speedway?

How did the car run (lap times, etc.)?

That is a sweet job. I love it !

One question..........is that tow hook legal for the track? I have heard from a couple of folks that they aren't allowed by some clubs. I guess they think it is too light weight.
