I run a CNC laser at work. Do you have any pics of the process or unassembled pics of the frame?

Thanks guys,

I have a lot of fun building, but more fun racing them!! This car is a raffle car for a race I'm having next weekend at Buena Park, CA. I'm putting on a Memorial Race for all our friends we lost over the years. We have a great time.

Any of you Model builders live out that way you should come check it out!! Here is the address 6161 Lincoln Ave. Buena Park, CA


Mark, I will take some pictures of the chassis unbuilt.

That's very cool! When Drag Racing with these, are Wheelie Bars a must thing, in car with long frame too, as this one? Very nice one!

I've been there a couple of times. If it wasn't my daughter's 16th birthday that day, I'd head down there. Nice job on the car!
