Two projects going using old junk laying around the shop. Some newer equipment would be nice, but sticking with the low cost labor intensive routes.

Project #1 Modified

New bumper is made and installed just some sheet metal work to be mechanically complete. However I still have a lot of work to do on getting the setup right. This is an old car that I completely redid the front and rear suspension on (including mount points) over last year and due to life was only able to get it done and out the last 2 races of the year. Problem is it's not a "brand name" chassis so no help from a builder and honestly I'm still trying to figure these cars out. My first guess at springs was off a bit I know, but 2 races is not enough to dial in a "new" car (maybe if I knew what I was doing). Really have a lot of thinking on this to see what setups I want to test and have them ready for test and tune in the spring.

Project #2 Street Stock

Been sitting the last 2 years. Currently stripped down and needs completely inspected. Plan to add spring buckets to the rear and new sheet metal and get it back to looking like this.

Current plan for next year is still trying to figure out the modified. I know the rebuild was a step in the right direction, it at least feels like it's drivable now just hoping some more track time will help me figure out the setup and get some more speed out of it.
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

As of today I have 3 modified bodies to complete..always looking for more..2 possible aero test sessions pending. Then I hope that the tracks in the area all decide which way they are going with there modified rules so I can finish up a asphalt mod update,and finish up the plans for a spring shop addition, and some body work for a indoor car for the Rumble.
