    What is the color? Looks to be the lite green I have seen inside military planes.

    That’s what I was after. It’s actually straight from a spay bomb. The whole gut will be flat so no reason to break out a spray gun on this one.

    Woohoo!
    I've seen a few pics here and there on Instagram. Looks like it held up to the racing pretty well. There was even a short clip of you racing another belly tank. What a great clip!!

    Goes like a rocket. Haven’t been able to get enough room to find 3rd gear yet. Had a clutch bearing fail on Sunday that ended my racing but I am really happy with the way it ran and drove overall. It is the scariest most exhilarating thing I’ve ever driven.

    Priceless memories for sure...so I would bet that you want to give that third gear a run for the money...

    The event really is visually breathtaking to see and hear.

    Congratulations on a successful and rewarding experience...your tow assistance was very fitting as well...

    Daddy Ray, what a great weekend! That thing went like stink, and is really something to see in person with the canopy off. You are something else partner! Congratulations on another jaw dropping build. A cool concept, some good backup from the boys, and an excellant showing all around. You should be proud ( and get some sleep!)

    From concept to race car in less than a year! That's amazing, I'll bet you're looking forward to a couple nights sleep.
