    Man your flying on this thing. Is this new speed track opening this year? Any details? I also have an essex coupe body 28 or 9. I thought of a radical chopped b-ville type build but never thought there would be a place in ohio to run. My body was toast hardly anything left but I never thought as radical as your build. I love it. If there is definately gonna be a track within my reach I might build it.

    Drew, the 1/8" x 2" flat stock you used, does it run from the door jamb to the cowl?
