    Oh no, you're selling your car? Going to start racing a Miata instead?

    I would never buy a proven winning car as it would take away the primary excuse I use for being slow!

    Seems amazing that you can get a front of the pack car in any class for $5,500

    Not sure, but I believe Chuck did it. They are not hard to re-build. But knowing Chuck, who ever did it. It's done right. He would pull me off the corners ever so slightly. And I would get him back at the end of the straight's. We figured it was because he runs 13" tires and I run 15's.

    Here is a video of Chuck in action as I chased him in his last race.

    I didn't forget, just anyone that knows me knows I don't say much most of the time.

    I'm the one that did the rebuild. Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

    Thanks for posting the video Gian.
