    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Thanks again to all of the votes and support!

    The votes count for 33% of the total 'value' Champion places on the entry. The rankings were based on video views, so it's hard to guess how the views correlated to votes.

    Champion will announce the 15 finalist on Feb.18. Thanks to all of YOU, I feel our chances are good.

    Regardless of the outcome, we owe a HUGE part of our success and fun to all of you, for the support and encouragement you have provided us.

    Thanks again!

    Buddy Walker and the FlatCad Racing Team

    Sort of a CS way to do it. How many people voted every day, but only watched the video once. They should let you know up front how they are scoring. Would have made a big difference.

    Here's a couple better pics, the front motor mounts tab is welded to the frame, the rear is a saddle type that sits on the frame ,the underside has a saddle welded solid to keep it in place , There will be T-Clamps wrapping around the saddle mount and frame rail on both sides , Tim Jones

    Basically, that type of mount will work fine.
    That one in particular has several bad engineering faults.
