We'll welcome you back with open arms...

On a side note... My clutch should have shipped this morning... Hoping to see it by Monday...

I do have access to a trailer for towing to pretty much any venue I need to or want to go to... Monty and I are going to do some work on it, replace a fender that has some minor damage to it... And build an air dam for the front of it to keep rocks and whatnot away from the front of Brandi... I'll also be painting the trailer... It's in good shape but Monty doesn't want my car up on it unless it's looking the best it can...

Thanks Monty...

Here is a pic of the wheels as they came out of the box...

I'll take them down at some point and have the tires mounted on them... Maybe this week...

Glad you got your wheels, I am still waiting on my wheels.. They are to be delivered tomorrow. I have already received my fronts, but the rear wheels were backordered for about a month. Now to get the rear gears replaced (Frank said the replacement gears should ship out tomorrow) and get my slicks mounted on my wheels and go out and make a few passes !!

Thought we, er... you were getting a clutch today?

Nice wheels. I don't know if it's the camera angle or my eyes, but the inside looks smaller that the outside.

Nice tires in the background.

Those Welds are really nice wheels R. They definitely are a lot rounder than Savini's. What sizes did you end up going with ?

You can refer to it as we or us.... This place is enough like family that I feel like this car belongs to a lot of us...

Still haven't got a tracking number for the clutch, but that doesn't mean it hasn't shipped...My vendor, Thomas at Hendrix engineering said occasionally they don't send him a tracking number... but he has an e-mail into them

As for the wheels, they are smaller on the inside... it's a new race design... moves some of the weight into the middle reducing the MOI... You have to order special dual diameter tires...
