    Above is the video from Greer. About halfway through you can see the wall bump and afterwards there's an interview so you can see a close up of the damage

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Also spent the week dialing in the suspension so hopefully it'll drive better this weekend. Polished the lips on the Americans and put dual regulators on it

    That regulator plumbing is a work of art
    Still scratching my head on that one.

    It took me a few passes to get used to the throw from 3-4 being way shorter than 1-2 but its nice otherwise. I think i will like it even better as i really get used to it.

    You switch trans?
     
  17. First time Marc drove the '56, he double clutched 4th, thought he had miss shifted cause of the short 3-4 throw. :D

    That's funny Rick, bc i did the exact same thing. I was already gun shy and when I shifted to high gear i immediately pushed the clutch back in bc i thought i had missed a gear

    Damn, I gotta say it again, you guys got a cool thing going with this gasser series.
    Great video, best 30 minutes I ever wasted, can't wait for Darlington coverage.

    pretty decent footage of us in the video. You will have to ignore the bracket cars with the 2steps, they weren't part of our group. The track had a bracket race the same day as a filler for us between rounds, but hopefully next year as we keep growing we can have just our show at all the tracks we visit
