After some encouragement and direction from John Reimels I decided to try building some cars. The first car is an inline car based on the Landshark kit. Following John's article on the topic I made some adjustments for the mini motor, and cut the pan apart so I could have floating pans. Front end is the Wizzard brass front end. Rear tires are Quicker Engineering Gravity tires. gearing is 7/20.

Second car is a sidewider based on Joel Pennington's design. Tires are from Joel.

Very satisfy to be racing something I have built myself.

I was able to get the bracket and the front pan from Reimels who had gotten it from Joel.

Hey, some nice work there! I under stand you placed one of these cars quite nicely at your last gravity race. Fun to have an early build do well! They only get faster with age.
Congrats

Joel

Thanks Joel. I finished second at the last GRoNE race in the first race for the sidewinder. We had a second race that day I and finished 3rd with the inline car.

Thanks Shawn. Looking forward to trying them out at the Nats. Also trying to finish one more mini-motor build before I get there.

Latest car. Built just in time for the HOPRA Nats where I finished 8th. Thanks to John Reimels for help in final assembly so the car was ready.
