As Marc added a few posts up, this machine did a fine job on it's very first (and second I may add) race. Machine was completely untested, but went out and placed 1st in both of it's feature races. I'm having a little issue with the carburetor, but that wasn't quite enough to keep it from taking home the win. Here are a few pics....

Thanks. You can build one! You just need to put your mind to it. If you understand the concept of how things work, you have a few tools and basic logic, you can do anything.

Everything on this build was brand new, including the machine. Without the motor, I have about 5K or so in it...maybe a little less in it, but keep in mind, pretty much all of it is aftermarket top notch stuff. It could have been built a little better, but for my budget at the time, this is what I could afford. Add the built Briggs Intek twin, about 8500 total for the build. Don't let that deter you....equal machines can be built to outperform this one far cheaper.....I just wanted everything to be new and done my way.

Hello Joe, thanks for this thread. I saw you run in Gun Barrell City this past weekend. That was a nasty spill you took. Very glad to see you were o.k. It was nice to see a thread I have been fallowing and the machine on the track. Look forward to meeting you again i the future.

Thanks John. Didn't break anything, but at 4 days since the hay bale incident, I'm still pretty sore. As for the machine, well...it didn't fair well. Broken steering column, bent steering wheel, bent spindle arm, bent hiem joint, broken off fitting in the front right brake caliper, badly bent axle....but a whole slew of amazing people came together to help put this thing together and make it race ready in less than 40 minutes.....it just blew me away! I got out on the track for the feature (wrecked in my heat) and took 2nd, then in the 2nd feature (double header) I placed 1st. All goes to all the amazing people....it still blows me away.
