Was able to get some more done on this model in the weekend due to the bad weather outside there was NO racing at my local track...

Made up a set of headers from solder wire (1st go at this) also decided that I`m going to put a driver in this time , So I used the figure from the sprintcar kit and re-shape him to fit. :lol:

Well have been slowly working away on this model,But the other day I was inform by a driver/chassis builder that he thinks that my rear axle is too far back.

So I have sent most of the weekend re-working the rear axle and mounting points... Ended up moving it about 3mm..

And even though I hate to admit it , he was right it does better now..
