    If you have any ideas I'm open to them!

    Bill Gilcrease races GT Lite in an original Mini. I don't think it is a tube frame and he does well with it. GT Lite is a smaller class. I think 4-5 of them ran this past weekend with SCCA at AAA Speedway.

    I think Nils has been to a few "shake it" clubs. I know a few girls with car names who fit that description...

    So does that mean she really only weighs 80 lbs because she has 20 lb bolt ons? Or is she weighed with all the equipment.... kind of like the car and driver?

    I strive to be accurate.
