couple action Shots from Saturday Night... This thing is wicked off the corner as you can tell it totes the front tires easily.




That is one awesome mowchine!! It was great to meet everyone who traveled to the fair in Union City to race. I have to say that everyone did an outstanding job. All the racers that I got to talk to were very nice and freely shared tips on building a racer and on joining the BAMA-TENN  chapter of ARMA, which I intend to do. It is great to see so much information shared on the forum also.It will make building a racer a lot easier.

I don't think that tire was on the rim... I've been looking and looking at it and it looks like the sidewall is in the middle of the rim..

I'd say you're both very much correct!

So far I like it. Traction is unreal not sure why but it got awesome forward traction off the corners. I would not do it with a beefy twin without bead lock wheels.

You said that you are running a "Big Indian" in this. What size is it?
