    I think some father and son bonding is needed. I would buy him that cheap Stalker in Denver with the LS engine. Then you can play tag on track together. Bring him up to NJMP and you can show him what lines should not be used.

    I have a better idea. Let him borrow your #85 car and have him bring it to the Gathering May 10-13 in North central Arkansas. Since you can't make it. We'll make sure he obeys all the posted speed limits. Trust me. Russ

    Default A Bit More Prep

    With the NJMP 4th of July event little more than a week away, I finally got around to corner weighting the car. While still considered a heavy weight by most 7-ish standards, the car (with full fuel, 9qts of oil, Accusump/oil cooler system, track tire/wheel package and wings...no driver) weighed in at 1674lbs. To put that in perspective, that’s 76lbs less than it weighed pre-accident. Weight shedding came about via a slightly different chassis design, a definitely different cage design, an even lighter-weight battery, a rethinking of how I fastened the car back together and what materials were used, and, a little weight reduction here and there via trimming of components and the use of various sizes of Milwaukee hole saws.

    As for me, I’m a s bit more robust than I was pre-accident. I fear the only thing that’s going to take weight off of the LR is a healthy dose of Jenny Craig.

    Shane, you better reread the NJMP tech inspection guidelines, specifically section 7 L. " All Holes in the bodywork must be filled"

    hopefully you can remedy that issue in the next week. Tom
