    It is interesting seeing buddy cruising around in that tank...all control is feel with no visual. Tall or High Gearing is evident in takeoff as well...easy to understand the push starting at the Lakes seeing that.

    You know I was thinking about my assumed safety gear which is just that...one thing about period thinking is there may be less than I was assuming and all I want to say is Lady Luck will be always close by to guide you safely through to the finish line...much as she does for me...

    Right now I'm just building it for Trog. If I decide to do anything else with it I will take it back apart and make the required changes. I usually drive a car for two days and then sell it.

    Ignition system, 2x2 intake with strombergs, cam, adjustable tappets, maybe mill or replace the heads . All depends on time and money.
