This wasn't a dirt track, and other drivers weren't having this problem.

Most likely. Granted this was practice too. Even though he'd go in low and end up high, he was running third and only about a car length behind the second place dude.

We'll see how it goes come race night though.

in my experience in the races ive been doing these bodystyles always win, they are usually the ugliest cars too but having no rearend sticking out i have a large advantage. Heres a video of the engine sound i forgot to add the fire up in it but to my surprise it fired right up first try today i think if i just make sure to fire it up once a day it should be ok, after sitting for a month, and then a few days it didnt want to start when i test drove it, and went to pick it up.

Also if anyone wants any parts off this either before i race it or after i race it let me know, it has a brand new alternator in it which you can see in the video and some other new things. the doors and spoiler are already spoken for.
