I race with Glenn at our local track and I can tell you that it is not finished. He started a new job around the first of the year and is working 70-80 hours a week so his tractor and Heymow time has come to a halt untill he gets things rolling along at his new job. Experienced manager at new dealership and you guys can figure out the rest. The only ones that are done are his BP and his daugthers JP. I will let him know you are asking though

Hello all. Been really busy with the new job, but have found a little time to get some new parts. Got my Hoosier's!!

Now I got some meat in the back for traction. Got some more triming to do to clear them though.

I really need to start humping on this thing if I want to have it done by Vestaburg Shootout. Anyone wanna come over and help? I got beer. LOL
Anyway, more to come soon.

After being at the USLMRA Sparta race and racing with the WOO guy's, I have got the itch to get this thing done. I have set a goal to have it ready to test by our next race on Aug. 6th. Then ready to race at the V-Twin shootout. Hopefully I will have some help this weekend to jam on it. Got it all tore down and finished the welding on the chassis, made some pedals and got the clutch worked out.






Making a mess on the bench but making progress.



Got a big pile of parts for it.



And of course the Hoosiers.



Hopefully have some more pics in a day or so.

Got quite a bit done this weekend. Snopro (Craig) came over Saturday evening and helped get the chassis in paint.



Sunday, I started to get it together. Got it to the roller stage.



Man, this thing is low!



Worked on it most of the day, Just a few more days of work and it should be ready. Had to put it outside for a couple pics.





Still have to wire it, paint the fenders, run the fuel, chain tensioner etc. All the time consuming stuff.

Finally fired the engine up last night. At first the engine wouldn't start and found no spark. Changed the coils out and it fired up. Sounds pretty good for a little engine. Don't know if I have enough for the WOO's put I will have fun trying to keep up. A couple more things to button up and it should be ready to test this weekend. More pics when it looks like I have done something.

Got it done for testing at our races on Saturday. A little clutch tweaking to do, but it drives very good. Amazing what real race tire can do. This thing pulls off the corners with some G's. Track was very bumpy from the rain delays we had, but it was very tacky, so I could at least test the belt drive. Seems to be working ok. The crowd also loved it when I was doing hot laps after the heat races. Lot's of them came over after the races and just could not believe that it was still all lawn mower. I love it. Alot of our spectators are coming up to the shootout just to see all of the supermods.

Here she is in all her glory.









Installed the mychron today and a few more tweaks. Should be in good shape for next weekend.
