Son is starting another Camaro

Postby HomeRacingWorld » Sun Aug 27, 2017 10:11 pm

My son Christopher helped down here tonight and asked if he could start a new car.

Who am I to say no?

He is excited to say the least.

So here we go again!

I`m sure the end result will not disappoint us purists, he has a talented teacher. So I imagine perfection is in the stars ! The man builds cars like he been around it his whole life.

That's a stiff chassis with thee .062" (?) rods on each side. With a flat track, the stiffness and the weight should help keep all 4 wheels planted most all the time. Nice looking car!
