Chris Tropea did an excellent job of showing VERY little of me doing my best Will Farrell / Ricky Bobby Jr "what to to with my hands" routine! 

It was a great honor to be highlighted with so many awesome cars and competitors at the event.

I look forward to seeing you all there in October, 2021!

I didn't realize how close you were to half budget.  Sad that no one ran half budget this year.

I was going to pull the headlights and be sub $1000

Nice job and great video!


I wish I had been able to check out your car in action!  But I was busy still finishing my car during most of the Auto-x portion.

Had I known that nobody was running half budget, I would've dragged the escort down.

Tossing an m112 onto a Lexus V8...


Milling and machining an adapter bracket to make to challenge friendly instead of purchasing the conversion kit shouldn't be too hateful.

$125 nitrous setup sounds much less labor intensive devil

I'm going to watch that video later because I don't have sound at work but I just wanted to say the opening sequence gobbling cones and two fists out the sunroof is hilarious.
