Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

I like 97% of the car...if it was not for the 'outboard offset' of those front wheel centers It would be 100%.... sorry Brent, just calling it as I 'see it'...
I will let you off for the P***** transaxle for now!!

I'm with ya on that. It's an unfortunate side effect....either tires stick out and proper offset or wrong offset and tires inside wells. You can see what I chose...Tires sticking out just kills me.

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

PROGRESS!!! Well after a major trailer to lift accident that was my damned fault...I'm an idiot...lets leave it at that. Now I don't have to worry about the first chip in the paint....or the second...or the third...or....

After really messing things up, I got things back in order miraculously. Went for about a 20 mile drive tonight. YAY! A lot of odds and ends to complete though.

Congratulations to your wonderful creation.
Have you done the pics with a big zoom or is it a photoshop thing ?

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

The car looks great!

Brent, We are really looking forward to seeing your ca at the Historices this year. Speaking with Dan Burrill I think we are going to get some track photo time with our cars there.

Sorry to hear about the scratch, don't feel too bad I got my first scratch coming out of a driveway of a gas station.


Message to Fran, I need the number of the running light when you get it please...
