Sitting ready for its first race this weekend! Been a long journey to get to this point. Not quite done (am I ever?!), but time to go have some fun. Racing with CVAR at Texas World Speedway this weekend!

Fantastic! I enjoyed reading your build log. Hopefully the shake down will not take too long.

Sitting in line at the gate. Actually only have the 7 in the trailer as the plan was to have racerchic drive the ?lan to the track only it wouldn't start for me today- battery dead in the cold weather. So after unloading have to go home and get him running.

Not the best of news. Started blowing smoke during test and tune day. Water in the oil. Maybe a head gasket? Will have mto see.
