316538_431079710289766_1683557599_n_zps4I'm now building a car for a client in South Africa. His good friend, Johan Roos, owned and drove this car to several championshps there. It's an 06 Maxim, 410 winged pavement sprinter.101_2977_zps6f5e57f6.jpg101_2973_zps07762b47.jpg101_2975_zps09e98303.jpg101_2980_zpsf950a195.jpg

It's 1/8 scale. I use 3/16" styrene tubing for the chassis main rails, 1/4" for the front axle and 3/8" for the live axle rear end. On the hood I use 5/16" tubing, cut in half, for the part that wraps around the rails

Converting this over to a dirt car, the guy in SA tried to bone me for the money so I contacted the next guy inline and I'm building his winged sprinter.101_3079_zpsa51d62c3.jpg

So the next guy in line is Bud Kaeding. This is his 2012 wing sprint I'm building. I almost done; got a few more things to do and decals. Hoping to finish before next weekend as he's here racing until the 3rd.101_3132_zpsc3c30fce.jpg101_3140_zps0c615f22.jpg

Long been a fan of Brent, Bud, and Tim Kaeding. Wasnt the dad Howard Kaeding? Seems like Howard ran #68 and of course Brent usually ran #69. Saw Howard get into a fist fight at Antioch Speedway, might have been with Steve Kent, and Brent joined the fray. Love your work Ken!

Howard is Brent's Dad. Big time racing, multi time champion, family. When I raced, in the 70s, Howard was the hot shoe around northern California and Neveda. It was said that he invented the "San Jose Slide Job" Good people!

That must have happened the first year it came to Antioch.  I saw it last year for the first time and it was awesome!  I go to the track every now and then to watch the local races, but the WoO race is crazy.
