    Been busy on the T finally got to drive it around and figure out some engine issues. Got some carb tuning to do but other than that I think she's ready for the beach. Had a buddy Jillian Rossi, a traveling stripper out of Florida do some lettering on the car for me. She'll be at TROG!! Hangin out

    We had an awesome time at the race of gentlemen can't thank the oilers and Mel for another killer time. The T did fine I blew a head gasket my first pass but was able to nurse it for a few more passes had some leaky carbs and it stopped charging but all in all it was a great weekend can't wait for next year. There's a bunch of pics on the The Race of Gentlemen thread and there Facebook page

    I like the project. Looks great. How much of a drop is the front axle? Perfect height
    Thanks
