It’s like you need quick-release everything for this car! Like Legos so you can reconfigure it for each event!John JonesModeratorNovember 29, 2022 at 1:06 pmPost count: 13384
I’m not changing my plans. I’m building a short course car. That’s my favorite racing👍🏻
the GAS race is Monday 😎. How many will still be alive for that?😎.

So…. I’m done fabrocating again..👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
third go around on tranny mounts😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳. I went back to the type 1 nose cone . I adjusted the rear mount for proper engine angle and a less positive camber attitude😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎. Made some extra room for axle boots and I also repaired my worn out stock rear spring plate stops. and BAM!!! Getting there..

feeling good about my cars chance of making it to hammers…. Some good news got me pumped to work on it, I wanted to make sure I could do the couple things I wanted too before then, and it looks all doable… 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
The firewall, Tabs.. need some…And putting the old tank on top of the tunnel looks easy enough.. and two straps to hold her tight..

big tank, little tank..
I suggested “making” a stock tank work up front…. That went over like a turd in a punch bowl😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

Did some mock up for this old 10 gallon desert tank…. Gonna be fine! I have some simple and light weight ideas for straps…. Battery relocation is not an issue. I could mount that tiny battery anywhere!

Need to get some aluminum for my firewall…. That’s what all that yellow tape represents 😎😎😎😎
Finish up this gas tank mounting… and get to the firewall..

After I got my RC painted.. I started welding in some bars to hold up my gas tank. .. saves me money to reuse this tank any ways 👍🏻 Now I question why I would ever run the little tank…. I got the weight lower and more forward now.. and more to the @inside@ if your building a car just for CRANDON 😘. I had to think and rethink my tabs and straps…. I think I got it finally 👍🏻
