Be kind of fun to leave all the welds showing and unfinished, just paint. Easier too…Audrey JonesModeratorNovember 16, 2022 at 2:41 pmPost count: 1112
push a little, measure, push some more, hammer a bit, then weld, cool, hammer, repeat for days 😎 oh and the doors open better than ever!! 😅
Pat and JJ have kicked ASS on this the last 5 days… that’s right only 5 days ago it was pushed into the shop!!! That’s how KCW rolls 🔥🔥🔥John JonesModeratorNovember 16, 2022 at 4:02 pmPost count: 10781
I’ve got most the welding done now… I’ve spent most of the last 5 days on this.. I need a break… and I need to get back to earning some $$$$$$$$$$$$$&😁😁😁😁😁. I think I spent the last month pushing my shit forward.

This car… I can’t wait till it hits the top of my list again… I just couldn’t bring myself to work on this until I got my truck more sorted out… which is happening!!! Slowly but surely… I really want to keep the 1131 Oval racing!!!
Back to life!!! 😎 2 months till KOH!!!
We cut right through the wiring harness cutting the roof off… 8-( Opps… 😎
Things I HAVE to get done before KOH…
1)Need to run a new harness… 😎 easy… 6 whole wires to the back… 😎
2)Trans, needs a new diff and reinstalled.. quaffie I hope…. 😎 I think a quaffie should be legal for swing cars!!!
3)Thinking I need to limit my rear suspension… No more positive camber!!! fuck… 😎 maybe 1 degree?? I should try and drop the back of my trans to equal the type 1 nose cone… drop the back 1 1/4 inch’s. That would also help keep some suspension, while getting rid of positive camber.. I spent 20 years fighting negative camber and raising tranny’s,,, now I want to drop the trans 😎
Pretty fucking funny how things come and go and come back again… 😎 Can’t leave anything stock!!! 😎 😎 😎 NO WAY!

KOH is in February ‘this year! I got almost 3 months!! Easy peasy!!!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I just realized something else. Putting those shaved 7.0’s on was like running 3.5’s on the ground.. a wider tire has more leverage over the torsions and my car sat lower when I ran those bus tires…
an exagerated example would be when I took the Sand scorcher to the dunes. I took off Yok’s And put on some paddles. When I took off, My car squatted sooo bad I needed some coil overs on it!!!!
Wider tires aid in getting it down some.
And I simply don’t need that much ground clearance!!!! I’m bringing it down ALL the way around👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻✅✅✅

JJ has to learn all the lessons himself, no matter how many times the others racers advise him against something hahaha The evolution of this car through all the races has been fun to see and experience 👏🏻😎
each race we go out more prepared and practiced 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 KOH 🔥NewboldParticipantNovember 19, 2022 at 9:15 pmPost count: 162
The more we do, the more we can know about where we started and with all that knowing we can know where we want to go. But that part between where we start and where we go is often the best part anyhoo. Good job!WillyModeratorNovember 20, 2022 at 8:35 pmPost count: 1656

This car not only takes multiple hits but comes back prettier than the rest for the next thrashing.WillyModeratorNovember 22, 2022 at 3:35 pmPost count: 1656
Do you know what days the actual Class 11 event is at KOH, or is that TBD?
