Made a few test hits tonight on car #4. Had trouble with shutter. I made downforce changes in set up for the rebuild. What to do now?
Well at first I thought tires but I didn't hear tire shake.
I made a couple full passes, the pick up shoes had arching on the tips.
I fixed the arching problem leaving rear tire and bringing the nose down. LOL! It is ready

Yeah now I just need to leave it alone.
Car #5 is coming along. Needs wheelie bars before I make any more adjustments. This car is a 71 Satellite. Viper powered. Back to the bench.

So far the 2.5 class has the most cars entered. Should be an interesting race.
