You have good slicks too, I have been wondering why you did not have better 60fts. I would stab someone for your 9 second slips, you have fast car doing nothing but getting faster all the time!

It blows the tires off. That's why it blew itself up too. Same deal with all the shifts too. I usually just keep it floored and drive through it but at Indy it spun so fast there wasn't much I could do. Do you log mph? It's pretty cool to see where it spins. Especially when you can't feel it. Just makes to suck to see the lost ET.

We will all be investigated for these stabbing threats!!

Yeah I log it and Ted always mentions it is spinning, but for me it I think its just taking off, my shifts seems to hit hard. I will post up a video from last night in a sec and you tell what you think if it only seem like taking off. I will put it in the drag race section we are straying a little off topic here and we will be answering some questions downtown is someone actually gets stabbed tonight, LOL.

I agree. Seating, coolers and fridges are way more important then tools and parts.

Yes, you can. It's not a big deal. They have kits that include the trim so it looks like it was made that way.

Or you can winch your car in and never open the door.

Thankfully I can drive the cars in, when mine isn't blown up, and open the door enough the get out. It's tight but with a two car trailer the doors open on either side of the wheel wells.

This year....once. 4 outings, 1 snapped axle, 2 blown motors.

The one time I drove it in I was by myself so thankfully it only ate two plugs.

A very nice trailer! I see some very nice subtle features you did, only thing I see lacking, is why no power jack for hitching? (which is easy added at anytime)

The build was getting a little out of hand so some features had to go. Your right it is an easy add on and about half price if you do it yourself.

I hope that is not the case. Intech has my car dimensions and they assure me the ramps and escape door will work. I believe the inner wheel fender may need to be removed to get the clearance. Now the trick is to get it home safely with winter weather across the mid west and here at home.

Actually you are correct, winching isn't bad at all I just need to get the remote wireless control the car goes in straight just need a bump stop and wireless controll
