    Seasons over with SEGA. I'm happy to get the things accomplished I set out to do this year. Car drives good, hooks up pretty good on a 9 inch slick, transmission and clutch doing good. Still collecting parts for the 306 for next season. This year we qualified in the middle of the field, hoping for top quarter next year. This field is flying this year ! Thanks Caleb Sewell for the pic ! Shady Side 1.jpg

    Looks great but I would paint the sections of the rollbar that show through the back window black or blue like the car.

    Living on the edge Loudbang ! The whole interior is red, did it on purpose. I agree, not for everybody and I'm evidently not a judge of fine wine LOL !

    Went to Baileyton Alabama with the new 306 engine. Ran good, still not fast enough ! Got some major tweaking to do. Didn't have shifter stops adjusted properly and kept twisting 3-4 selector shaft. Figured it out too late for first round. Got a replacement today and stops adjusted. On a better note Jimmy "Buffalo" Hall does some neat visual effect "what if" prints and got mine done after Baileyton. I think it's COOL !! Fast Wheels Fiddle Picker.jpg

    Heard about the pennies that fell out !! Not saying I wouldn't use them in secure cannisters on the inside, really fine tune your ballast !! Great to see you Tony !

    Great picture. I hope you don't have that much lead on me when we match race. I am getting ready as fast as I can.
