Got the engine, battery and puke tank ( by the way in the picture I had the tank in the wrong position, the barbs are facing to the left now instead of facing toward the front) in place. we are battling heavy rain and major flooding here. So far our property is ok.... for now. Here's what everybody likes, PICTURES!
heres the engine, still missing a flywheel
and last the battery and starter wires

ok, 2 setbacks. 1: our first race is in 3 weeks and my funds are to low to buy a billet flywheel    mad and 2: when I had the chassis upside down I failed to realize which way the belt slack was on so the clutch was put on the wrong side   doh the clutch is no problem to fix. I have a murray brake pedal assembly that im going to use for the clutch that im modifying to fit the chassis instead of using a lever on the steering wheel that I had previously planned. since I cant come up with a flywheel yet im going to drop in a stock engine, governed and run GP and hopefully have a flywheel by june. not really happy with that idea but at least I can make the first race. we are still battling heavy flooding and having levee after levee failures so its pretty crazy around here. here's a pic of where im at so far with the clutch pedal fabrication. I will be using a stock pressure lube oppy for GP (our rules let us run oppys in this class as oppys make up 90% of the power plants in our area and are a dime a dozen) and I will be installing it this weekend.

If your running for points in the class your running a modded oppy just run the stock oppy in that class
